court hammer editCourt Reporter
Eight women residing at polygamous Harare pastor Robert Martin Gumbura’s house have appeared in court on allegations of possessing pornographic material that included pictures in which they were posing naked.
It is not stated in the State papers whether the women were Gumbura’s wives or members of his RMG End Time Message Church but they stayed at his Marlborough house.

Court records show that Gumbura’s young brother, Innocent, paid for the women’s bail.
Choice Neganye (32), Amadeus Mutakwa (32), Rutendo Mandiya (28), Pamela Kandawire (27), Runyararo Musvovi (27), Veronica Mbanga (27), Tendai Kwatara (34) and Moreblessing Takawira (35) recently appeared before Harare magistrate Mrs Barbra Mateko.
They are charged with contravening the Censorship and Entertainment Control Act.

The women are out of custody on US$30 bail each and are expected back in court today.
Prosecutor Sharon Mashavira alleges that on November 22 police detectives received information on the abuse of women and children at number 6 Helena close in Marlborough.

They proceeded to the house and a search was conducted.
The police recovered 16 pornographic DVD’s and 57 photographs of the women posing naked.

Gumbura  is facing seven counts of rape and an additional count of contravening the Censorship and Entertainment Control  Act after he was found in possession of pornographic material.

According to the State, when the police raided his house, they recovered sexual enhancement drugs and pornographic videos.
Police also recovered video recordings, in which Gumbura was cursing people that reported him to the police.
Gumbura is in custody after his bail was revoked by the High Court.

His trial opens on December 9.

      @ John Rambo, One thing for sure I am not defending what this man and his other crew did, it was bad esp. when one is said to be a man of God. In your case @ John Rambo you are saying this as if it does not happen in Katorike, who says you are clean, the devil has got ways and he tries at all times to penetrate, give him no chance, any way check this out:

          Are you not ashamed to defend the indefensible and justify the unjustifiable? Would you have no scruples at all in being nude in front of your kids coz that’s the way you were created?!

      • Thembie

        John Rambo. Pious Ncube? Gay Priests in Europe? Paedhophile priests who abused boys? No one is righteous except God and organized religion is poisonous. Let the polygamist pastor have his day in court.

  • Yedu Nhaka Izimbabwe

    Unless someone believes that this was a church, there is nothing new to us regarding what has been reported on this society’s activities. That’s what cults do and not churches.

  • Pablo Escobar

    Censorship and entertainment control act,should be used to censor material and entertainment meant for public consumption.If these pple are posing for each other in the privacy of their home why should we care? Some of these acts are very dubious.

  • tttt

    enlighten me please. is the possession of sexual enhancement drugs a crime? is posing nude and keeping the images to yourself a crime?

    • Jotham

      When you pose for pictures naked , you have a motive. If these were to remain in private, there is no crime. The porno magazines that the ladies had were done possible in Europe , but they ended in Zimbabwe. My concern is basical your intention., you will be targeting certain individuals. An unholy act is not acceptable biblical or otherwise.

      • jojo

        so is one’s home not considered as private.

  • kb

    We have a problem of calling every Jack and Jill a pastor. including satanists…lets desist from this habbit and promote the church of God and its leaders.

    • tshabs

      lol prophet Jack and prophetess Jill

  • Jotham

    Zvinoshamisa izvi. Mwari pindirai

  • jojo

    lets move with the times.dragging adults who are well over 18 to appear in courts for possessing pornographic images and ways to enjoy and improve their sexual desires is an outdated law in 2013.

    • tshabs

      Chief I think we need a moral threshold. Next thing you will be saying lets move with the times and destigmatize homosexuality.

      • jojo

        that’s a lame argument.

    • HEZVO-KA

      Your comment betrays your ignorance about porno….it all starts off innocently as “adult fun” but very soon enough the person will graduate to hard core porno, and before you know it, they will want to practise what they have been seeing on those dirty videos. If you carefully check the background of most child molesters, paedophiles, prostitutes, etc you will discover the element of porno behind all that.

      • jojo

        assuming that people will all become paedophiles,prostitutes etc by watching pornographic videos does not cut it with me.whats wrong with me and my Mrs watching porno and copying whatever is in it within the confines of our house?

    • Jotham

      We are talking about supposedly christians not mere adults. Christians should have moral values which are beyond question.

  • stax

    chigumbura,haasi ega ey are many who ar doing this but ey pretent to be perfect man of God

  • Investgator

    EFZ and other church representatives why cant you introduce church investigation officers who go to churches as the doors of the churches are open for everyone. With the help of the government these churches should be abolished.

  • STALALA

    PEOPLE NOW USING THE CHURCH AS A SHIELD TO THEIR IMMORAL INTENTIONS. A SURVEY INTO THESE RELIGIOUS SETTINGS WILL REVEAL HOW PEOPLE ARE ABUSING THE WORD OF GOD

  • iwanttoseeit

  • Not Afraid

    Are people defending Gumbura here, I hope not. Can you not see that these women are all brainwashed. Havatozivi what they are doing. Gumbura told them that he is God and they believe him. Lets pray and intercede for these men and women. If you knew this Gumbura man then you would not be defending him like that. Anobata vana vane 12 years and the parents keep quiet about it, hanzi our child has been blessed. Please Zimbabweans ngatibatanei one day it will be your child or niece. These women literally increased the volume of their TV and locked their door vachinzwa mumwe achichema getting raped. Honestly kudii ikoko. Zimbabweans ngwarai please. Google Tony Alamo. That’s exactly zvinoita Gumbura. Have a heart!!
