Latest On Prophet Walter Magaya Rape Saga - Zimbabwe News

Finally, the rape trial against Walter Magaya of Prophetic Healing and Deliverance (PHD) ministries which had stalled for a long time will now go ahead. 

This follows the striking off the roll of his challenge by the Constitutional Court. Magaya had challenged his indictment for trial at the High Court arguing he cannot be tried over a rape case where the complainant has voluntarily withdrawn the charges. A lot of legal technical jargon surrounded the case.

The supposed man of God Walter Magaya has faced a myriad of rape allegations from female congregants both substantiated and unsubstantiated.

In my view, it is utterly evil and treacherous for any woman to blackmail and threaten religious figures with damaging accusations for the sole reason that religious leader seek to protect their names from the prying eyes of the media and public. In the same vein, it is immensely wicked for supposed clerics to exercise influence over the weak of the society because they wield power. The stated two sides above precisely capture the DNA of the Magaya rape trial. There are two things involved and either one is going to come out true and the other false; there can’t be any other scenario. Precedent is at stake. Put simply: it’s either Magaya is guilty as previously alleged by the woman or she must face jail for telling malicious lies to the court.

Initially the complainant in the rape matter alleged that she was raped by Magaya in a case that weirdly did not surprise many. Cases of sexual misdemeanours against Magaya are common talk. What made the case of this girl curious was her determination initially to have justice done, even going to the extent of releasing recorded telephone conversations of their sexual escapades and places of meeting with the supposed prophet. The conversations went viral with the majority unmistakably identifying Magaya’s voice in the recordings.
