One Father Kevin Mthunzi Takaendesa, a catholic priest in Bulawayo Zimbabwe has been ex-communicated from service for allegedly impregnating a nun.

According to the Archbishop of Bulawayo, Alex Thomas, who confirmed the report said the measure will serve as a deterrent to other priest.

In his words, “Father Kevin was disciplined for impregnating a nun and I have it in writing but he went to England on holiday which was planned at the beginning of the year. As you know that it’s not easy to walk to England.

“Disciplinary procedures are there in every field and as a church we’ve a Code of Canon Law which lays down administrative policies. If there is any misconduct we use it to discipline members.

“I can confirm that he (Father Takaendesa) went to England and came back to Bulawayo. The holiday had nothing to do with impregnating the nun as that is his own personal issue,” Archbishop Thomas said.

“I understand that a lot has been said about me and other priests but all this needs facts. I never transferred a priest to England after he impregnated a nun and I didn’t chase her away from church,” Archbishop Thomas said.

He furthered that he has nothing to do with nuns because they have their own systems of law that guides them. He advised people not to take all information from the social media because a lot of such are false reports.

“Nuns have their own rules and systems. I don’t have to deal with nuns.” He asked people to stay away from social media rumours over the incident and his own private life.

“I’m not worried about social media gossip mongers claiming that I’ve two cars, a house and even a child who is in South Africa.
