A Rusape pastor Kindness Tashu stand accused of m0lesting a member of his flock – who is a minor after late night prayers in his office.

A report was lodged at Rusape Police Station referenced CR25/04/21.

Pastor Tashu, who leads an AFM assembly, denied the allegations stating that he did not m0lest the girl although he conducted the prayer sessions.

He claimed the story was a gimmick to tarnish him because of factional fights within the church.

“This thing is a plot. A lot of church politics is at play. The accusations are influenced by factions. They want to tarnish my name in the community and they are simply fighting me.

“On the mentioned day, I just took her for prayer sessions. These people are not real members of the church. They are fuelling church factions and nothing else. All these are fabrications and I will prove myself in court,” Pastor Tashu said.

Speaking to H-Metro, the brother of the alleged victim said: “The pastor m0lested the girl during a prayer session.

“He is in our neighbourhood and he took advantage of the fact that all other family members were away except my sister.

“My mom had left the pastor’s wife as the guardian of the girl during the family’s absence. The pastor tricked the girl into late prayers in an attempt to sleep with her after cell groups. On the day, the pastor called her to his office and prayed for her more than five times. He then told the girl he wanted to teach her how to handle a man in bed.

“It is then that he pushed the girl towards the walls and started f0ndling her. This happened after 10:30pm when other family members were already asleep at the pastor’s house.

“We have lodged a report at Rusape Police Station for indecent assault. We tried to discuss the issue with him to hear his side of the story and he was so defensive claiming that we don’t understand how the spiritual realm works.

“After that we then reported to the police station,” the brother said.

Pastor Tashu who leads an AFM assembly denied the allegations stating that he only made prayer sessions with the girl and did not molest the girl.

He claimed the story was a gimmick made to tarnish him and due to factional fights within the church.

“This thing is a plotted thing, a lot of church politics is at play. The accusations are influenced by factions. They want to tarnish my name in the community and they are simply fighting me.

“On the mentioned day I just took her for praying sessions. These people are not real members of the church. They are fuelling church factions and nothing else.

“All are fabrications and will prove myself in the court,” Pastor Tashu said.
