House of Grace International Ministries leader Prophet Sham Hungwe has been accused of physically abusing his wife.
The clergyman was brought to Harare Magistrates’ Civil court by Faith who is seeking a protection order against him over his violent conduct.
The matter was heard before magistrate Victoria Mashamba who granted a default judgement since Hungwe did not turn up for the court session.
Allegations against Hungwe are that he was in a habit of bringing his girlfriend at their matrimonial home in front of Faith.
The court heard that whenever Faith questioned the man of cloth’s conduct, he would thoroughly beat her.
Faith, court heard, had been beaten several times and on the fourth time that’s when she made a police report.
There are also allegations that at some point Prophet bashed her before dragging her with his vehicle.
Further allegations are that he would chase her from their house after confrontations over the girlfriend.
Following continuous beatings, Faith moved to stay with her sister.
