A Kenyan pastor identified as Elisha Nadoya Mizigo of Goods for God’s Gospel Ministries has stabbed his wife several times before turning the knife on himself inside a church they founded together in Mombasa.
Bittertruth Media reports that the incident happened this Sunday at the pulpit while the service was going on.
The embattled pastor reportedly stabbed his wife in the back and hand before stabbing himself in the chest and neck.
It was gathered from suicide note the pastor left behind that his wife was committing adultery and was plotting to dispossess him of the church property.
“She has been involved in love affairs with young men in the church…I hustled from mkokoteni (cart) pushing and we slowly bought the plot after we took some loan from a local bank,” read the suicide note.
“After a lot of struggle, we progressed well in life and were even blessed with children and then began amassing wealth and property, including owning a church. However, at some point, my wife started to betray me. She went behind my back and took control of all what we had gotten in 19 years without my prior knowledge.
“She even took away the parcel of land where the church stands, including church furniture and equipment and even had me arrested. My wife also subjected me to insults. I was not allowed to see my children. Today I have killed her.”
Attempts to save the Pastor’s wife failed as she died at the Coast Provincial General Hospital while the pastor’s lifeless body lay on the pulpit before it was taken to the mortuary by police.
