The ‘excommunicated’ Anglican Bishop, Nolbert Kunonga, has been walking around with a gun strapped to his hip, threatening to shoot journalists.
It seems he is not very happy with the court ruling that finally removed from his possession the church properties that he had taken control off.
MISA Zimbabwe issued a media alert to say that when Kunonga arrived at the Anglican Cathedral on Thursday he found that some of the movable property was being taken out of the cathedral’s pre-school, located in the basement.
They reported that Kunonga advanced on the journalists who were taking photos of the scene, ordered them to stop and then threatened to shoot one of them.
The Daily News said he was, ‘sweating profusely’ and had a gun holstered at his hip. He shouted: “You think I am playing with you, I can shoot you.”
He had also been told by the court to return three vehicles he had decided were his own, and the clerk of the court tried to block his path and get the keys for the vehicles.
The newspaper said by this time he was frothing at the mouth with anger.
It remains to be seen what Mugabe’s gun toting Bishop will do next, if his head doesn’t explode with anger first.
