Controversial street evangelist Apostle Talent Chiwenga failed to attend his wife’s funeral wake and burial on Sunday due to injuries sustained in a car accident that occurred last week in Masvingo.
The Apostle’s wife Regina Jerina Chiwenga died on the spot and was buried at Glen Forest cemetery in Harare
“We buried her (Regina Chiwenga) yesterday (Sunday 16 June) at the Glen Forest cemetery together with other church and family members, unfortunately apostle could not attend the burial due to injuries sustained during the accident,” said ministry spokesperson Apostle Baloyi.
He said Chiwenga underwent a successful operation on Thursday afternoon and was recuperating at a Harare hospital.
Baloyi said at this stage it was not clear to state when he will be back on the pulpit.
The controversial preacher rose to fame through his socio-political teachings castigating government policies and he also took a dig at other church leaders.
He has made sensational claims that he was a target from state security agents during his sermons and last week in a video that went viral on social media he claimed that he was a victim of an assassination attempt.
