A well-known Gokwe prophet got himself into trouble after he forced a juvenile to play with his erect manhood under the guise of a vir_ginity test.
The prophet, Innocent Mufandawana (21) of 1501 Light Industry in Gokwe, allegedly connived with the juvenile’s mother and agreed that the prophet would take the juvenile, a Form 4 pupil to a river for exorcism of evil spirits.
On 24 July this year, the juvenile’s mother, whose name was not mentioned, ordered her to accompany Mafandawana to Sesame River for the exorcism process.
Upon arrival at the river, Mafandawana ordered the girl to take off all her clothes.
After she complied, the prophet ordered her to kneel down and he inserted his fingers into her vagi_na purporting to be testing if she was still a vir_gin.
He then begged to have se_xual intercourse with her but she turned him down.
The prophet, however, continued inserting his fingers into her vag_ina and f0ndled her breasts telling her it was a rehearsal of what they were going to do the following day.
He went on to pour water onto her head before ordering her to touch and play with his erect manhood until he eja_culated.
The prophet then told the girl that they would complete the exorcism exercise at his homestead.
Along the way, the girl managed to escape and she made a report to the police leading to the arrest of the prophet.
He was arraigned before Gokwe Magistrate Musaiona Shortgame who remanded him in custody to 5 September after he pleaded not guilty.
