Last week on the Midday Report, the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities said it was going to investigate the practices of some religious leaders, after a man dubbed the snake pastor was found to be feeding snakes and rats to his congregation.
Stephen spoke to Councillor Edward Masadza of the Commission about exactly how this investigation will be conducted.
