Apostle Mudavarima Denies Targeting Single Mothers, Admits Deception with 3 Women
Apostle Christopher Mudavarima, the founder of Living Waters Ministries, is embroiled in a firestorm of controversy as explosive claims of exploitation and deception have rocked his church community.
Several women, including single mothers, have accused Mudavarima of deceit and financial exploitation, leading to a significant decline in church attendance.
In response to the allegations, Mudavarima vehemently denied the claims made against him, but he did admit to having been involved with three different women.
He described the accusations as false and suggested that the women had conspired against him.
Mudavarima’s defiant statement was reported in an interview with H-Metro, where he stated, “What they are saying are all lies, but I double crossed three different women so they teamed up to fabricate these stories. It’s Maggie who opened my phone and found out that I was dating Candy and Claris.”
The controversy surrounding Mudavarima came to light when incriminating evidence, including pictures and chat transcripts, surfaced in a church WhatsApp group.
An unidentified victim revealed a pattern of the apostle proposing marriage to numerous women within the church while soliciting financial contributions under the pretense of Apostle Vutabwashe’s endorsement.
One of the victims, who chose to remain anonymous, expressed her distress, labeling Mudavarima as a womanizer and claiming that he had made marriage proposals to several women within the church.
Allegations also suggest that many contributors felt deceived as Mudavarima urged them to make financial contributions supposedly destined for Apostle Vutabwashe.
As a result of these revelations, the Living Waters Ministries has experienced a significant decline in church attendance.
Despite Mudavarima’s effective preaching, the fallout from the allegations has caused a mass exodus from the congregation.
Reports indicate that the number of attendees has dwindled considerably, with many disillusioned by the controversy surrounding the apostle.
This recent controversy is not the first time Apostle Christopher Mudavarima has been involved in questionable actions.
In April 2022, he was convicted of defrauding a job seeker of US$183 by falsely promising to secure a job for them at a mining company.
Court proceedings revealed that Mudavarima received a 48-month sentence, with 18 months suspended on the condition that he reimburses the complainant.
An additional three months were suspended contingent upon good behavior. It was also revealed that he had a previous six-month suspended jail term from another case, which was reactivated, resulting in an effective 30-month prison term.
