Police detained Apostle Christopher Kunda, 45, of Plot 168 Chalala, the Church Leader for Presence of God Life Ministries International, at the Central Police Station in Lusaka yesterday at 16: 00 hours for Assault Occasioning Actual Bodily Harm (OABH).
The incident occurred around 22:30 p.m. on July 31, 2023, in Society Business Park, between Cairo Road and Cha-Cha Cha Road.
He is alleged to have assaulted Reverend Nelson Mhango, aged 62 of House Number 4199B Matero, who is a member of Bumper Harvest Church.
The duo differed after the complainant had advised the suspect against him allegedly having a love affair with a female member of his Church.
This was after the wife of the accused had invited Reverend Nelson Mhango to counsel the couple in Chilenje and on their way taking him back to Matero they made a stopover to buy some food.
Reverend Mhango was punched at that moment after continuing to advise Apostle Kunda not to have a love affair with a female member of his church.
The defendant has been formally detained and charged with OABH Assault today. He was freed on police bond and is scheduled to appear in court soon.
