Pastor Gumbura back in court for rape

court hammer editTendai Rupapa Senior Court Reporter
A POLYGAMOUS Harare pastor suspected to be a serial rapist was yesterday back in court facing fresh allegations of raping three women from his church on different occasions.
This brings to five the number of female congregants that have reported rape cases against Pastor Robert Martin Gumbura who is the founder of RMG End Time Message.

He was recently acquitted on another charge of allegedly offering sex lessons to a married female congregant and vowing to sexually satisfy her.

Gumbura allegedly threatened the victims with death spells.
It is alleged he told them that he would commit them in the hands of the devil and that death would be imminent before giving examples of people from his church who had died due to his death spells.

On the third count, Gumbura is jointly charged with his secretary Tendai Ganyani who allegedly assisted him in raping a girl he had adopted.

Gumbura and Ganyani were not asked to plead when they appeared before Mr Donald Ndirowei who advised them to apply for bail at the High Court before remanding them in custody to December 2.

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

The man of cloth has two pending rape cases before the same courts.
Prosecutor Miss Sharon Mashavira alleges that sometime in January 2005, Gumbura took one of the complainants from her workplace to his house on the pretext he wanted to counsel her for having a relationship with a non-church member.

Gumbura then demanded to be intimate with her and the woman told him that she was having her monthly menstruation.
On a different date, Gumbura allegedly ordered the woman to come to his house before quoting verses from the Bible which he said upheld his moves of wanting to sleep with her.

He allegedly raped her once and ordered her not to tell anyone or else he would curse her with death.
Thereafter Gumbura on several occasions would allegedly engage into sexual intercourse with the woman who complied in fear of death.
It is alleged the woman fell pregnant twice and Gumbura facilitated the termination of the pregnancies.

On the second count, it is alleged Gumbura raped one of his wives’ younger sister.
It is alleged he ordered his sister-in-law to accompany him to a food outlet in Gweru to buy ice cream in the evening.
He allegedly parked his vehicle at Fair Mile Motel and took her to one of the rooms where he raped her.

He justified his actions by telling her that what had happened was a revelation from God before giving her examples of people who died after they were cursed by him.

The State further alleges that Gumbura took advantage of an underprivileged girl whom he had adopted and raped her with the help of Ganyani.

Ganyani ordered the girl to enter into Gumbura’s office and locked the door from outside.
After raping the girl, it is alleged Gumbura phoned Ganyani and ordered her to unlock the door.

All the women later reported the rape cases after seeing that the other women who were raped by him had reported their cases to the police and had not died.

As the police went to arrest Gumbura, they came across two pornographic DVD’s in his brief case and 16 DVD’s in Ganyani’s office.
Mr Emmanuel Samundombe of Antonio and Dzvetero legal practitioners is representing them.

      tell us more, what is the church itself doing about his abuses. We hear you guys leave the issue to God without you conducting a judicial hearing for your wayward church members and pastors. I understand this is not the first time your pastors are into this mess. While pastors are human there must be some disciplinary action to be taken in such cases like what God did to David.

    “All the women later reported the rape cases after seeing that the other
    women who were raped by him had reported their cases to the police and
    had not died.” Really?! What kind of people are we dealing with here?

    • Tendekayi Machivenyika

      Have pity my friend, people are scared out there. These evil ‘men of God’ are instilling the fear of God into these poor people and they simply comply.Just go to any church where the people are shouting ‘hiriri! hiriri!’ and tell them their pastor has done this and that, noone will believe you, especially these poor orphans which this guy was taking in purporting to help them. Remember that pastor who raped about ten women (maybe there are others who are afraid or ashamed to come out) after telling them that’s the way he administers ‘holy medicine’? Noone in their right senses would believe it but it happened.

  • ceeeeeeeeeee

    This is fallen former Pastor of End time message who started his own independent RMG which he was using as a vehicle to fulfill his lustful spirits preaching polygamy in the process. The cogs of God’s wheels grind slowly but they will surely catch up with you

  • Munhumutema

    This guy aitozviita chete. I have heard other people who would talk about him, aitora nherera ochengeta and then force them to be their wives, its a cult and the sad part is those who are the wives are orphans and even if they are raped or abused the young girls would be told ” ndokupai kuna satani and u will die” and so it is true I once heard someone saying that. Finally 8 years later the truth has come out.
