VETERAN guitarist and producer Clive Mono Mukundu called out some religious leaders. He accused them of hiding behind religious titles to get rich.

In a recent interview on the Denny J show, Mukundu criticised some religious leaders. He said they pretended to be holy, but were really just trying to get rich

"People think I hate prophets, but actually, I respect their hustle. I respect how they get money from people," he said.

Mukundu claims a preacher once kicked him out of his hotel during Covid restrictions. The preacher, whom Mukundu implies was a prominet preacher, was hosting a musical show at the time.

"One of them once forcibly removed me from his Waterfalls hotel during the Covid-19 days," Mukundu said.

"There was a sungura show headlined by Peter Moyo and Mark Ngwazi. Some of the guys who were performing there requested that I bring them beer. When I arrived, upon seeing me holding a cup with beer, the man of God yelled at me and chased me away from the hotel.

"He sent bouncers after me, who forcibly removed me from the show and the hotel. I blasted him on Facebook afterward, and he sent Peter Moyo to invite me to talk to him and settle things peacefully, but I rejected the offer. That young man really disrespected me, and I demand an apology, which I know won't come."

Mukundu also said he left Christianity because he believes it is a lie and churches ask for too much money.

"The problem with disagreeing with religion is that it can sound disrespectful. When it comes to Christianity, however, some might see it as a well-intentioned misconception," he said.

"I discovered what I felt were inconsistencies within the faith. I began asking questions that no one could answer to my satisfaction. Additionally, my church demanded a significant amount of money and tithes. To make matters worse, some influential figures who led me to God turned out to be wife abusers and preyed on young women within the church."

"Christianity," Mono argues, "created God in humanity's image, and it's built around fear and faith.

"However," he concedes, "it works for many people. It encourages good behaviour, discourages alcohol consumption and violent confrontations, fostering a sense of safety within society. Ultimately, faith relies on personal experience, and there's no denying the power of testimony."
