Accusations of Extra-Marital Affair
In November 2018, Pastor Gilbert Chadyemhunga was accused by Lindsay Nyajeka, husband of Ethanim Perfect Munamato Guti (daughter of Ezekiel Guti), of having an extra-marital affair with Ethanim. Nyajeka pointed a firearm at his wife and threatened her in response to these allegations. The incident led to legal proceedings, and Chadyemhunga’s name was brought into the public spotlight as a result.
A court hearing took place before Harare magistrate Obedience Matare, where Lindsay Nyajeka, represented by Jonathan Samukange, faced charges of pointing a firearm at his wife. The State asked for a postponement of the trial, citing the complainant’s illness and hospital admission. Nyajeka’s lawyer argued that this was an attempt to manipulate the evidence, as records showed that Nyajeka had surrendered the gun to the church before the case was reported. The court postponed the trial to November 30 for further proceedings.
Allegations and Actions
According to the State’s allegations, in December of the previous year, Lindsay Nyajeka and his wife had a disagreement over extramarital affairs. Nyajeka accused his wife of being involved in an extra-marital affair with Pastor Gilbert Chadyemhunga, who was a pastor within the ZAOGA church. During the argument, Nyajeka pointed a gun at Ethanim, causing her distress. Nyajeka then fired two shots into the ceiling before leaving the house and threatening to commit suicide.
