Prophet r@pes congregant during spiritual cleansing

Prophet r@pes congregant during spiritual cleansing. Harare provincial police spokesperson Inspector Tendai Mwanza has appealed to anyone who may have information that can lead to the arrest of the alleged suspect to come forward.

A self-styled Harare prophet is on the run after he allegedly raped a 30-year-old woman in Old Highfield after misrepresenting that he had been sent by the Holy Spirit to cleanse the congregant. He said:

The suspect is on the run and anyone with any information on the whereabouts of the suspect should report to any nearest police.

ZTN reported police sources as saying the suspect only identified as Madzibaba Ray, visited the complainant at her residence in Highfield and r@ped her.

Madzibaba Ray misrepresented to the complainant that she was possessed with an evil spirit that needed spiritual cleansing. The suspect allegedly went closer to the complainant and unzipped her jeans dress.

The accused then had unprotected s.e.xual intercourse once with the complainant without her consent. The crime only came to light after the complainant told the story to one of the church congregants who advised her to report the case to the police. A source was quoted as saying:

When the suspect was approached to explain his actions, he became evasive. The matter was then reported at Harare Central Police station where investigations are underway. Inspector Mwanza said members of the public should not be fooled by self-styled prophets into believing that cleansing can be achieved through s.e.xual intercourse.
