The Roman Catholic Church told The Chronicle it had started investigations following allegations that Father Fernando Ncube (43) of St Pius church in Njube suburb in Bulawayo had an unlawful affair with Ms Bridget Moyo (31) that resulted in pregnancy and payment of lobola.
Ms Moyo recently exposed her secret affair with Father Ncube after the Catholic priest allegedly tried to sleep with her mother. Father Ncube allegedly customarily married Ms Moyo last year and the two kept their relationship a secret. Archbishop of Bulawayo, Alex Thomas said the church was investigating the issue. He did not share details with the media regarding procedures. Archbishop Thomas however said the church’s final decision will be made public. The Chronicle reports Father Ncube is still performing his duties at his parish.
