A pastor identified as Thomas Makoni allegedly hired an assassin to kill some members of his church. The assassin, when apprehended and charged to court, confessed that he was sent by the General Overseer of Gospel of the Kingdom Ministries in Chitungwiza, Harare, Zimbabwe, to kill some of his church members because they were spreading rumours about him. The assassin further claimed that he was a bosom friend of the pastor.

I know Makoni as my friend since 2002 and in June, he came to my house with Godfrey Sithole around midnight.
He gave me a task to kill and bomb his church members who had caused chaos in his church. He would visit me daily saying I was delaying, instructing me to kill Kudakwashe Elliot and Abraham Kabodo by assaulting them and leaving them for dead.
He wanted them to die a painful death. Makoni said he wanted them dead because they were causing chaos by telling people of his misdemeanors. He said Elliot was telling people who had been involved in an accident that it was due to his juju.
Makoni also instructed me to kill Mrs Chinhamo (Afra Nhanhanga) for financing Kudakwashe and Abraham so that they would withdraw from their church.
However, Pastor Thomas Makoni denied the allegation but was remanded in jail until the 7th of January, 2016 for judgement.
