The car acquired by Denford Mutashu's wife - Memory Nomusa Ruvazhe - was paid for in April this year and arrived in Zimbabwe in June.
The car is actually a Toyota Mark X and NOT Mark II as claimed in Mutashu's court papers. Again, the total cost of the car, all expenses included, was US$7,000 and NOT US$10,000 as per Mutashu's claims.
While Nomusa met Prophet Magaya for the first time in June when she booked at the PHD guest house seeking help on her marriage problems, records show that a telegraphic transfer of US$3,150 was made at POSB's Harare Main Branch on 22 April 2014.
The bank transfer was made to the Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi UFJ Yokohama Eximae branch. The car was bought from SBT Japan whose physical address is Yokohama SIA Bldg, 7F, 2-10-36, Kita-Saiwai, Nishi-ku, Yokohama, Japan.
The US$3,150 transfer for the purchase of the car was done by one Cosmos Ziwande.
In an affidavit, Nomusa revealed that she only started going to PHD Ministries on 3 June this year. She was following her brother, Stephen Ruvazhe and also recommendations from close friends as she sought solutions to her marriage. Nomusa is the third wife to Denford Mutashu who is also a manager at Food World Supermarket. Mutashu is currently married to three women (and still counting). He however, wedded Nomusa in January this year at the court.
"My brother had used anointing oil from Prophet Magaya and it worked well for my child," said Nomusa.
"I paid a total of US$7,000 for the car, the breakdown being US$3,200 for the importation of the car, US$2,600 for duty and US$1,200 for transportation of the car to Zimbabwe from the port," she said.
