 A woman who has sued the United Family International Church (UFI) pastor Jacob Tembo says he was not much of a Man of God but was great in bed.

Cynthia Shungu Tapera has taken the married pastor to court seeking child support and the illicit affair is now the talk in church.

Cynthia narrated: “I used to hear people calling him a great man of God. I would laugh at them. To tell you the truth, to me, he was just a great man in bed.

“We first met in 2006 in church and he lied to me that he was not married. I believed him because he never put on his ring and generally looks younger than his actual age because of his bling. I only discovered that he had a wife when shecalled me.

“His wife told me that she had heard that I was going out with him. But there was nothing I could do about it because I was already heavy with his child,” said Cynthia.

“If he really didn’t want to have a child with me he should have just used a condom but he decided to have unprotected sex. So he has to look after his child,” said Cynthia, who also claimed that she was still in possession of Pastor Tembo’s underwear.

Pastor Tembo refused to comment on the matter saying that the dispute between him and Cynthia was still sub-judice.

“Go ahead and do your job, I can’t comment on that because the matter is before the courts,” he said.

Some church members were even more titillated when pictures of the pair began circulating via smart phones. But his ex-lover Cynthia denied leaking the pictures.

“He is a close friend of the church bishop and each time the bishop called him when we were enjoying our quality time, he would order me to keep quiet. He was afraid that the bishop would hear my voice. Sometimes he would lie that he was in in church while we were in fact enjoying in the city.

“Jacob needs more deliverance than most UFI members because he is just misleading people. Most people in UFI don’t even know that he drinks (alcohol) but I know he does. He drinks expensive stuff,” she said.

The woman said Pastor Tembo was still stalking her and asking for sex.
