A Catholic priest, identified as Father Abel Mwelwa, has been suspended in Lusaka, Zambia after his married lover allegedly died during marathon sex in his house, LukasaTimes reports.
According to memo from Alick Banda, the Archbishop of Lusaka addressed to the clergy, religious and Lay faithful, Father Mwelwa has been suspended with immediate effect.
“I hereby wish to inform you that I have with immediate effect suspended the Very Rev. Ringford Abel Mwelwa from the priesthood indefinitely. With this suspension, he ceases to be Parish Priest for Kaunda Square Parish as well as Judicial Vicar of the Archbishop of Lusaka,” read the two-paragraphed memo dated 30th April 2020.
The late lover, who was a member of the Catholic Women’s League from St Maurice Catholic Church, had lied to her husband that she was going to a funeral but ended up with the priest.
Investigations are still ongoing at the time of writing this report.
