A VIDEO clip of a woman accusing Prophetic Healing and Deliverance (PHD) Ministries founder Walter Magaya of raping and impregnating her daughter went viral on social media this week, sparking debate on various platforms on the allegations.
The woman, who claims to be a member of PHD Ministries, appeared emotionally drained as she narrated her story: “I received a message from my daughter while I was performing my duties at church (PHD Ministries) stating that she had been raped by Prophet Magaya and that he was responsible for her pregnancy.
“We are loyal members of the church. She said the prophet used to sexually abuse her. She said he used to sleep with her. They were never in love, but he just manipulated her.
“The daughter was manipulated through promises to pay her school fees. He even promised to take care of her needs. She was cornered until she gave in.
“She told me that the prophet was her child’s father. I could not believe it considering that I used to see him (Magaya) every day at church where I loyally serve the Lord.”
Efforts to get a comment from Magaya and his spokesperson were fruitless.
Meanwhile, political activist Patson Dzamara has said he is organising a demonstration against the embattled Magaya.
Said Dzamara, “We will be marching to Magaya’s church soon. We can’t and won’t allow this nonsense to continue. Who is with me?”
Dzamara later posted on Twitter that Magaya had sent people to threaten the family of the alleged victim.
“I have made contact with the parents of the lady who was sexually abused by Magaya. It is disturbing to learn that Magaya has unleashed people to harass their family and they have gone into hiding. We can’t keep silent Zimbabweans. This madness must be stopped.
“Makandiwa leads a big congregation just like Magaya but I’ve never heard any allegation of sexual abuse against him? This should be the 4th time for Magaya. There is a big issue here and Magaya must be thoroughly investigated. He must not be allowed to continue abusing women.”
