A married woman in Zambia was said to have died inside a Catholic priest’s house after she lied to her husband she was attending a funeral.
According to 9ja Live Times, Father Abel Mwelwa invited the woman who also happens to be his lover to the parish house on Holy Thursday night.
The woman is a member of the Catholic Women’s league from St Maurice Catholic Church in Lusaka.
Lusaka Times reports that Archbishop Alick Banda suspended the clergyman as the judicial vicar of the Archdiocese of Lusaka.
An official memo from the church has also stated that Father Mwelwa has stopped being the parish priest of Kaunda square parish.
“I hereby wish to inform you that I have with immediate effect suspended the Very Rev. Ringford Abel Mwelwa from the priesthood indefinitely. With this suspension he ceases to be Parish Priest for Kaunda Square Parish as well as Judicial Vicar of the Archbishop of Lusaka,” a part of the memo read.
A source close to the media said that the clergyman was mandated to pay for the funeral expenses by the deceased’s family.
As at the time of writing this report, the autopsy result for her death was not yet ready as the woman’s family urged the police to investigate the real cause of her death.
An unconfirmed source, however, said that the priest reportedly injected some substance into the deceased in an attempt to abort her pregnancy.
