A Zimbabwean pastor appeared to have failed in his assumption about a church member who he thought to be a vampire.
Pastor Masimba Chirayi of the New Johanne Masowe, Zimbabwe, reportedly killed his church member he assumed to be a vampire.
This occurred while he was baptising the deceased identified as Wendy Thinnamay Masuka.
According to reports, the clergyman felt threatened by the late congregant’s violent reaction while being baptised.
In my eyes she was like a vampire possessed by demons, she was violent and I thought she was going to kill people so I kept her submerged in water until I overpowered her.
Says Chirayi when made to appear at a Magistrate’s court in Zimbabwe.
Punch News reported that the pastor has been granted bail but has been set for a court reappearance in May 2018.
