A Zimbabwean pastor and his wife were gunned down by armed robbers in South Africa last Thursday.

The armed robbers fled with two cellphones and a laptop. Alexandra Police Station spokesperson Captain Kholeka Mhlongo said the killings occurred at the couple’s rented home in Scottsville Extension in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu Natal province.

Capt Kholeka Mhlongo identified the deceased pastor as Proud Kanyungwe (32) and his wife, Belinda Tarisai Mukucha (28). Kanyungwe was a senior pastor at the Grace International Church.

“Two armed gunmen entered the deceased’s rented house at around 2AM. We suspect when he (Kanyungwe) saw the door opening he tried to wrestle with the suspects and during the scuffle, one of the two men pulled out a gun and shot him,” he said.

 The suspects then got into the house and shot Mukucha while she was walking out of her bedroom door as her children were watching.
No arrest have been made so far.
