Harare civil court Magistrate Vongai Muchuchutu early this week reserved her judgment on a case in which a local pastor is being barred from praying by her neighbor.

The pastor Alice Mutinhuri and her husband whose name was not revealed in court early this week said her neighbor Lillian Masaiti harass them when they carry out prayers at their home.

Frustrated by the harassments she is receiving from the neighbor Pastor Mutinhuri approached the civil court and appealed for a court order barring Masaiti from the act.

“She calls me a Satanist in front of many people in the neighbourhood. She also labels me a prostitute and it is my plea that the court should stop her from insulting me,” she said.

Masaiti who was in attendance denied the allegations saying she was instead the one who was being disturbed by Pastor Mutinhuri, without substantiating how she was being disturbed.
