A PASTOR was on Friday hauled to court for allegedly rap_ing a member of his flock whom he was staying with.
Prosper Tapiwa Shiri, resides in Murombedzi, Zvimba, and is a pastor at Disciple All Nations Church in Murombedzi.
He was not asked to plead when he appeared before Chinhoyi provincial magistrate Tapiwa Banda who remanded him in custody to April 30.
Allegations are that on a date not recalled by the complainant, but in the month of November 2020, Shiri’s wife, Priscilla Manjemanje, travelled to Harare leaving the complainant, Shiri and the children at the homestead.
On the same day, the complainant went to sleep in her bedroom at around 7pm.
Shiri reportedly entered the bedroom where he went on top of her and ki_ssed her while forcing his tongue into her mouth.
The accused is said to have undressed the victim and rap_ed her.
Review Nikisi appeared for the state.
