The Queen and Generations: The Legacy actor Nimrod Nkosi has scored a role as Papa Moses Zwane in SABC3’s telenovela – The Estate.   

Moses is a leader, founder, and pastor at Lighthouse of the Blessed Redeemers Church.  

His character is a sex pest pastor Papa Moses Zwane who is known by his followers as Papa M.   

He arrived with his right-hand lady, Precious, who organises girls for him.  

According to Sowetan, Nkosi’s character is a pervert who pretends to be an anointed man of God.  

“He does all this under the pretence that he can speak to God and can ask Him to bless them.”

“He installed this mentality that through him everything is possible while using the children for sexual pleasure.”

“Precious, his right-hand lady, was abused by Papa M at a young age and now she has grown and now facilitates the women for him.”

The media personality believes that the Papa Moses storyline will open the public’s minds.  

It deals with an issue that has become a pandemic all over the country and has been under investigation by authorities.  

His character is an abusive pastor who takes advantage of the vulnerable, rejected, and dejected, especially the young girls.  

““He takes advantage of children who come from broken families. Papa M is charming, charismatic, and handsome and when he talks, people sit up and listen.”  

Nkosi adds that the abuse of women is prevalent in the church environment … whether pastors decide to look away or acknowledge it.   

“The storyline seeks to show that there are spiritual leaders who take advantage of both boys and girls and parents need to be aware.”
