Pastor Lovejoy Chabata the principal of the Apostolic Faith Mission (AFM) in Zimbabwe’s Living Waters Theological Seminary has been accused of molesting his professional assistant, Ms Victoria Phiri. In a letter titled ‘Complaint of sexual harassment,’ Ms Phiri said,
It was on a Friday 10 August 2018 at 16.45pm when the principal Pastor Lovejoy Chabata called me to his office to file documents which were lying on his table. I went to his office and started to do the filing in his presence and he asked me to change one of the files and replace it with a book which was on his table…He asked me to put the book on top of his filing cabinet. As I finished placing the book there, he had moved from his chair and he was standing tightly hugging me and l had to push him away. He continued holding my right hand, rubbing it inside my palm and I quickly left his office…
Pastor Chabata refused to comment on the matter and referred all questions to the AFM secretary general, Reverend Amon Madawu. Said Chabata,
I am not allowed to discuss anything related to the church, so may you please get in touch with Rev Madawu.
