I have always maintained the stance that if you cannot allow your manhood to stay at its home then you might as well find people who are legal to sink your lustful desires in. The situation is far worse when the said person who committed such a never fading mark is a pastor or a man of God.
I know some of you people would come and say a man of God is also of flesh and we are not even going to dispute that for all the wealth in the whole— however we would love for our so called men of God to live the exemplary lives their God lived.
A Zimbabwean bishop has found himself at the wrong side of the law at the back of raping a 17 year old girl with and impregnating her—imbibing in her the fear of that a demon they had exorcised from her would return with scores of others to haunt her.
Read full report from the Chronicles :
“A Zimbabwean Bishop identified as Andrew Mnkandla, has bagged a 20-years jail sentence, alongside his brother, for allegedly raping and impregnating a 17-year-old girl.
It was gathered that the 41-year-old self acclaimed Bishop, with the help of his brother Lovemore, 34, a pastor at the church, held the victim hostage at his house and raped her on different occasions.
They also threatened that if she told anyone, “the demons they had exorcised from her would return with scores of others to haunt her.” The court also learnt that they went to the teen’s mother with his wife and tried to bribe her, so that she convinces her daughter to change her statement in court.
However the biggest shock at the court session came when Mnkandla failed to recite four common Bible verses.His Prosecutor Mr Mberewere asked Mnkandla to recite Genesis 1 verse 1, Psalms 23 verse 1, John 3 verse 16 and John 14 verse 1.
When asked to recite John 3 verse 16, he said: “Let your hearts not be troubled,” but it actually reads: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
Testfying against the Bishop, the teen said;
“We went to the mountains for seven days with my father and Lovemore. My father was called back to work on the fourth day, leaving me with Lovemore. On our way home he dragged me into a nearby bush and raped me. He told me if I told anyone, all the demons would return.”
“Mnkandla came to our house and asked me to go to his house where he raped me twice. The first time he wore a condom. On another occasion he held me hostage in his house the whole night. My mother came to look for me at his house while I was in his bedroom but he denied knowledge of my whereabouts.”
