Prophet (76) rapes 14 year old Girl to exorcise evil spirits

Appearing before the Western Commonage Courts, a self proclaimed 76-year-old prophet from Iminyela Flats in Bulawayo allegedly molested a 14-year-old girl from Pelandaba suburb purporting to be exorcising evil spirits he claimed had affected her.

Austin Moyo was not asked to plead to three counts of rape he allegedly committed last month.

Moyo was remanded in custody to 23 April and advised to apply to the High Court for bail.

The girl had visited her sister who lives in the same neighbourhood with Moyo when he approached her and told her that some evil spirits were following her and she needed some prayers.

The court heard that Moyo allegedly invited the girl for night prayers at his home where he allegedly molested her.

It is alleged that he molested her again the following night when the girl had come for the second session of the prayers.

Moyo would allegedly leave his bed at night and sleep on the sofa near the girl who was sleeping on the floor with Moyo’s daughter.

He would allegedly sneak into their blankets where he would allegedly rape her.

On the third count on Friday last week, Moyo visited the girl and invited her for another prayer session where he allegedly molested her for the third time.

On Sunday, the girl told her sister about what had happened and she accompanied her to make a report to the police, leading to Moyo’s arrest.
