Church has become big business these days.
Just look at the mega cars and expensive suits pastors are wearing.
But there are some loyal Christians who still believe in paying their tithes.
The Zimbabwean man hit social media headlines when he paid
Tithes are usually 10% income a congregant would have made during the previous month.
This means that he made over US$1 million possibly in Covid-19 tenders. The source of his income is still not yet in the public domain.
The Zimbabwe Anti Corruption Commission chair Justice Loyce Matanda-Moyo said: “The commission is tracing the source of funds which shows that the church member who paid a US$100 000 tithe had made US$1 million.”
Both the man and the Bishop whose church received the large sum are under investigation.
The ZACC is tightening the noose on corruption as several high profile figures have appeared in court on corruption charges.
Zimbabwe currently has an astounding 90% unemployment rate and it has been attributed mostly to corruption.
