A 20-YEAR-OLD Bindura man who was exposed by an apostolic prophet in a prophecy that he was bedding his 15-year-old cousin sister was sentenced yesterday at Bindura magistrates’ courts.
Elisha Zhuwao was sentenced to six months in prison wholly suspended on condition that he performs 210 hours at Chiwaridzo police station by magistrate Edith Chichera.
Representing the state Edward Katsvairo told the court that Zhuwao had unprotected sex with his cousin sister (15) between the period of April to September three times without protection.
The convict gave coins to the complainant to buy freezits whenever they had sex to buy her silence.
However the matter came to light when the victim’s mother went to an apostolic prophet in Mabvuku Harare seeking Devine intervention.
Upon arriving she was told that her daughter was sleeping with her cousin and if asked politely she will confess as she was being bribed with coins not to divulge the case.
Quizzed by her mother the minor revealed everything leading to Zhuwao’s arrest.
