    ‘Prophet pays 4 beasts to cover up rape case’


    BUHERA – A prominent prophet from Buhera paid four herds of cattle to a complaint's  family in a bid to stop an alleged rape case of a 15 year - old from proceeding at the courts.
    This was said by the complainant's mother when she gave evidence against Victor Chiminya (33) of Chiminya Village under Chief Nyashanu whose victim has since stopped going to school because she is pregnant.
    Chiminya who is a well known prophet with Sangano Rajehova Apostolic Church raped the girl who was doing Form 2 at Ndongwe Secondary School on the guise that sex with him would cleanse her of some evil spirits.
    "If you insist that you did not rape my daughter then why did you pay four herds of cattle for us to close this case? There are many witnesses to this deal who can be brought here to testify. You did not only rape my daughter twice but you also impregnated her," said the complainant's mother when she gave evidence as a witness before Rusape Magistrate Livingstone Chipadza on Thursday.
    Some people in the courtroom broke into tears as the complainant's mother gave evidence.
    Chiminya is denying the allegations and the case was postponed to December 13, 2017 for continuation.
    The complainant's mother said Chiminya brought the four herds of cattle when he wanted to pay for damages to the complaint's parents.
    The rape case came to light when the complainant got pregnant.
    The allegations are that on March 13, 2017, Chiminya met the juvenile and told her that the Holy Spirit had shown him that there were evil spirits inside her body and he wanted to remove them. He invited the girl to his shrine where he allegedly told her that he was going to exorcise the bad spirits by having sex with her.
    He raped her for the second time at the shrine.
    Tirivanhu Mutyasira prosecuted.
