By Grace Ministries founder, Onbert Mapfumo, was on Tuesday arrested after admitting he impregnated a married woman and sexually abused three others.
Mapfumo admitted to some of the allegations on Tilder Moyo’s show live on (Star FM) and is being detained at Machipisa Police Station. He is expected to appear in court today.
Yesterday, other victims emerged at the police station claiming they had been duped of money in promise of fake residential stands. Victims clashed with Mapfumo’s sympathisers who included his wife causing a scene at the police station distracting motorists.
The first victim, 25, who was made pregnant by Mapfumo, told H-Metro that the prophet promised her ‘new’ and ‘clean’ blood if she was to have sexual intercourse with him.
“The prophet was aware that l was having problems with contraceptives, so he said that he was going to cleanse me through sexual intercourse,” said the first victim.
“At some point, l tried to stop him but he told me that if l can trust a doctor to see me naked, why l would doubt a man of God.
The victim had a child with Mapfumo who died after six months.
“The whole time he would demand sex from me since we had a child together and I kept it a secret to my husband but it was affecting me daily.
“When the baby passed away, I had nothing to lose and told my husband who claimed all the money that he had used on the child back.
“Prophet would drag the issue until my husband recorded some of the voice calls which we used against him at Star FM,” she said.
A second victim, 28, said Mapfumo abused him claiming to be cleansing her from demons.
“To be honest, at this point l would like to think this man used some sort of juju on all of us, I could not stop him at all even though I knew what we were doing was wrong,” she said.
“Surprisingly, l would see several ladies lined up to enter the prayer room and knew they were going to be abused like me as well but we all did nothing.
“He told me that the moment I have sex with him, I will have new blood which would help me from spiritual attacks,” she said.
Mapfumo is said to have used many threats, some of them biblical to stop the women from saying anything.
“At one point, l asked him if what we were doing was Godly and he replied me saying that even the biblical David slept with married women so l should not judge him.
“I only slept with him three times but we had an argument since I did not want to ruin my marriage,” said the third victim aged 26.
Another congregant, Happius Mahembe claimed that Mapfumo duped him over a thousand dollars promising residential stands in return.
“He told us that he had worked with the CIO at one point so he had access to some lands that were being handed out,” said Mahembe.
“I was paying monthly instalments but since he was a man of God, I trusted him and there was no written agreement.
“All l want right now is my money back because who trusts someone like him, I even heard rumours that he had sex with my wife,” he said.
