SDA UK adultery saga, implicated elder speaks out

Staff reporter

The Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) church elder Tecla
Ponde who made negative waves in the social media circles a few weeks ago for
allegedly snatching the husband of her host when she travelled to the UK some
weeks ago, has said the whole drama was now a closed chapter for her.
Speaking to TellZim News, Ponde indicated that she was
a God-fearing woman, saying all that had happened were trials and tribulations
that she had, however, managed to put at the back of her mind.
“I am a God-fearing person. I did not even respond
when the allegations were circulating and I didn’t want to take the media
route,” said Ponde.
She said she did not want to dwell in the past, saying
life on Earth was all about serving God against the huge odds that the faithful
are definitely bound to encounter.
“I have made peace with the drama and want to forget
it because I think God was just trying my faith and I think I succeeded,” said
The drama started when Ponde visited the European
country on an evangelical mission.
An audio recording later circulated on social media,
with a female voice alleging Ponde had abused her hospitality and slept with
her husband when she went out on night shift.
In the audio, the woman angrily chided ‘Mr Ponde’ for
being husband to a homewrecker whom she accused of betraying her trust.
A few days later, another audio ascribed to the same
woman circulated, this time apologising to ‘Mr and Mrs Ponde’ for the
embarrassment caused, saying she had been fed wrong information.
The drama is still a topical issue in Masvingo where
the Pondes are based.
