Johanne Masowe Wechishanu YeNyenyedzi’s self-styled prophet Herbert Senda has appeared in court on allegations of ra_ping a woman he was praying for at his shrine at Budiriro 4 paddocks, Harare.
The court heard that Senda advised the woman that her problems could only be solved through the use of his man_hood. He appeared before Harare magistrate Ms Rumbidzai Mugwagwa, who remanded him to January 11 on $50 bail.
The prosecutor Mr Sebastian Mutizirwa alleged that a 26-year-old woman visited Senda’s shrine sometime in August last year at around 2pm and after the prayer session he started care_ssing her.
She allegedly pushed him away and Senda pinned her down.
It is alleged that he started undr_essing her and she asked why he was doing so. Senda allegedly told her that her problems could only be solved by his man_hood.
The woman started crying, but Senda threatened to kill her if she told anyone about the se_xual assault.
The following day at around 4pm, Senda approached the complainant who was staying at his shrine and apologised for what he had done. The complainant told Senda that she would tell her mother and he threatened to kill her.
He started praying for the complainant and ra_ped her again after the prayers.
