Akatsa’s first husband Franco Akatsa died a few years ago and her current husband of 12 years, she alleges, has been plotting to oust her from a church she has led for 27 years, besides having wrangles over church properties. Akatsa claims to have received death threats from her estranged husband for which she has recorded a statement with Police at Muthangari Police Station. “My husband ran this church since last year with five other women, but is now forming his own church as they could not persevere the strict discipline required here,” explains Akatsa. Among things banned by her church includes not marrying a fellow Church member and adultery. Akatsa accuses Mulinge of unfaithfulness, adding, “Together with others they stole the wheelchairs and walking sticks so that they can use to display them to people with an intention of winning worshippers whom they will lie to that they had healed people before. But I can assure you that they will fail miserably and be punished by God.” The Jerusalem Church of Christ also bans tithing and offering which Akatsa says offended the breakaway group that sees it tithing as a fast route to wealth. There are also no crusades and worshippers only attend services that have made many not to understand how she operates.

Efforts to talk to Mulinge over the allegations levelled against him were futile as this cellphone was still off by the time we went to press.
