A representative of the Zimbabwe Pastors Fellowship, Joseph Munemo angered fellow pastors on Monday during a meeting convened by Harare mayor Herbert Gomba.
The meeting was called by the council in a bid to recover funds that are owed by various churches.
When various church leaders requested the council to consider discounting the debts owed, Munemo said:
It is funny how churches want discounts for debts and to be given special rates when purchasing land to build their structures yet the same leaders have seven or eight top-of-the-range cars that they change every time they have a church service.
The same leaders are always on vacation in South Africa and Dubai but want a discount. How much does a plane ticket cost? Why not use that money to clear the arrears?
