The wife of the late Upper Room Ministries senior pastor, Bishop Berry Dambaza, has rejected social media claims that she was a woman of loose morals.
Speaking during the funeral of her late husband in Milton Park on Thursday, Sithembeni Dambaza said that she was not with her husband when he threw himself to death from a high-rise building in central Harare. She said:
When I received the sad news about the passing on of my husband my heart was broken.
I was not interested in following what was being posted on social media although someone wanted to share that with me.
I just became emotional and promised to take legal action about it.
People who know me know that whenever I stand on a pulpit to preach, I am not that kind of a person who is of loose morals.
In fact, my job is to correct what is not right and to rebuke what needs to be rebuked. That is me and my husband was different from me.
If people tell you different stories it’s not true. I was not there when my husband passed on.
I was attending to my mother-in-law.
Bishop Dambaza died early this week when he threw himself to death from the third floor of a building along Rezende Street in Harare.
