“Raghashanda… ragalabanda… ropokolomashekele….,” the pastor went on as he denounced the devil, calling him a liar. “Riswa! Riswa! Shetani ashindwe!” he cursed.
As few brave members trooped back, the boy who was hiding between two giant speakers rose up still laughing off his head. He was almost roughed up, had it not been the timely intervention of older churchgoers who pleaded with angry parishioners.
They told them to forgive the boy for he didn’t know what he was doing. Meanwhile, in his defence, he claimed he was only testing the parishioners’ faith in God. The sermon went on uninterrupted afterwards.
