A prophet at Gracious Light Ministries appeared before Western Commonage Court Magistrate Shepherd Mnjanja for se_xually assaulting two teenagers by touching their se_x organs.
Tawanda Chandinofira (29) did not stop at that as he gently rubbed his huge manhood against their thighs, claiming he was exorcising them of evil spirits that were tormenting them.
He pleaded not guilty to indecent assault charges and was remanded in custody to next week on Monday for commencement of trial.
Allegations against the man of cloth are that on 30 April this year the mother of the two teens — a boy and a girl — took them to Tawanda because they were affected by evil spirits that were causing them to fail to sleep and affected their performance at school.
She left them with him hoping that he would get rid of the evil spirits. But her hope and trust in the prophet was betrayed as the prophet groped her daughter’s brea_st and touched her private parts while rubbing his manhood against her thighs.
He did the same to the boy while claiming to exorcise the evil spirit that were causing them to fail to sleep.
But his abuse was short-lived because the teenage girl screamed when he forced her to touch his “angry” manhood.
An elderly woman who was sleeping in another room dashed to Tawanda’s room and was shocked to find him nak_ed with two hapless teens.
She called the mother of the children and she reported him to the police leading to his arrest.
