Gumbura women face porn charges

HARARE - Eight women linked to Independent End Time Message founder Robert Martin Gumbura have appeared before a Harare magistrate accused of contravening the Censorship and Entertainment Control Act, after being found in possession of several pornographic materials.

Harare magistrate Babra Mateko released the eight, Choice Neganye, 32, Amadeus Mutakwa, 32, Rutendo Sekai Mandiya, 28, Pamela Kandawire, 27, Runyararo Musvosvi, 27, Veronica Mbanga, 27 Tendai Kwatara, 34 and Moreblessing Takawira, 35 on $30 each bail.

According to state papers, the women whose address is 6 Helena Close, Marlborough, Harare were allegedly found in possession of 16 pornographic DVDs and 57 photographs of the women posing nude, following a police raid.

A perusal of the women’s court  record shows that their bail was paid by Gumbura’s brother Innocent.
The women were arrested after police officers received information claiming incidences of child abuse at number 6 Helena Close.

Gumbura, whose bail was recently revoked by High Court Judge Nicholas Mathonsi, is currently in custody and is being charged together with another woman Tendai Ganyani.

The pastor’s rape accusations date back to 2003 and it involves several church congregants.

According to state papers, the controversial pastor allegedly raped a 28-year-old South African woman (name withheld) in 2003 after she joined his church in 1998.

Prosecutors allege that one of the rape offences were committed in January 2005, when Gumbura picked a parishioner (name withheld) from her workplace to his house for counselling because she had engaged in a relationship with someone who was not their church member.

Gumbura allegedly raped the woman, before repeating the act the following week.

The woman reportedly fell pregnant on two occasions but Gumbura forced her to abort.

The state claims Gumbura also sexually abused his sixth wife’s sister, after luring her to buy ice cream after a church service in November 2005.

Further allegations are that he sexually molested another woman in 2009, after she was called to Gumbura’s offices by Ganyani.

He allegedly raped another 17-year-old Shurugwi girl (name withheld) in January this year.

the pornographic material was done by this 8 women with Gumbura. Holy Holy Holy God come back on earth and cleanse your children. So if this women can be fined of contravening the Censorship and Entertainment Control Act, why not do the same to Pokello and Tinopona for the sex tapes. Hell is on earth. Pastor/Apostle whatever, its an act of Satanism, sex gods and all the evil act. I ca not believe it. This man should see the inside of Chikurubi Prison for a long time to come. The President condemn this. 40 or more years for this so called apostle or pastor.

That is what happens when you broadcast and support Big Brother Africa. Even ZTV is screening material of the same sort. Who is listening to the President's advice and position on this matter? Patriotic Zimbabwean

people must stop the habit of praising a pastor/prophet more than God/Jesus.This causes them to be abused because being a pastor/prophet does not mean these guys are holy.On the judgement day majority or some will be condemned to HELL.
