A Bulawayo church reverend’s teenage daughter has allegedly been inviting his adult boyfriend into his father’s home on church premises with the connivance of security guards, one of them the man in whose house the Cowdray Park goblin was removed recently.
Hardly a week after the Cowdray Park goblin saga that sucked in Tito Gumbo, he has once again come under the spotlight amid allegations he threatened a workmate with death after it was discovered that he was letting in the boyfriend of the Reverend’s daughter for sleep-overs in his absence.
It is understood that following the alleged threats the frightened guards brought the matter to the reverend’s attention leading to his intervention, where he has since demanded reports on the issue. Gumbo is alleged to have been allowing a certain man, who works for a popular fast food outlet in the city, access into the reverend’s home to sleep with the clergyman’s teenage daughter.
“Gumbo and fellow security guards were asked to write reports on the matter. Gumbo, on realising the whole issue exposed him, then threatened a Muchemwa, who was on night duty with him with death, if he wrote a truthful report exposing him. Muchemwa quickly reported the threats to the Rev,” said a B-Metro source.
Asked on the allegations, Gumbo initially dismissed the whole issue but later changed his tune when details of the connivance were revealed to him. He said he had resolved the matter with Muchemwa and as for opening the gate to allow the boyfriend access, he said that he did not work alone in guard duties hence he could not be held personally responsible.
The reverend confirmed the issue and noted that investigations were underway.
He said the developments had come too soon as they were still trying to deal with the “goblin” capture incident which had shaken the school.
Muchemwa declined comment when approached by B-Metro and referred questions to his superiors. The alleged boyfriend denied ever setting foot at the reverend’s home though he admitted that he had been dating the clergyman’s daughter for four years.
