RIP: Gospel singer Funi Mbedzi sh0t and k!lled by husband during church service

Gospel singer Funi “Khavhanndwele” Mbedzi was tragically shot and killed by her husband during a church service in Makonde Shadani village in Limpopo on Saturday, March 30th at around 6:00 pm.

The suspect entered the church while the congregation was worshipping and shot the musician multiple times before fleeing the scene in a silver-grey Toyota Corolla.

The motive behind the incident is unclear, but domestic violence is being considered.

The suspect, a 54-year-old man, later turned himself in to the police. Funi Mbedzi was a member of the gospel group Worship House since 2004 and had recently featured on their latest album.

The group announced her passing on Instagram and postponed their upcoming event in light of the tragedy. They asked for prayers for Funi Mbedzi’s family during this difficult time.

Reports suggest that Mbedzi and her husband were experiencing marital issues and were in the process of divorcing. Their pastor confirmed that he was aware of their problems and had been trying to help them reconcile.

Following the incident, the church had to cut short a three-day conference and bring in a psychologist to provide support to the congregation.

Despite being a community that relies on prayer, they recognized the need for professional help in times of crisis.
