A TEENAGE girl who was allegedly possessed with an evil spirit has been plunged into deeper trouble after a self-proclaimed prophet reportedly s_xually attacked her before assigning a tortoise to suck her br3ast.
According to B Metro, a resident from Pelandaba suburb, Thulani Sibanda, said the self-proclaimed prophet only known as Madzibaba Sadza visited the minor’s granny in Nyanga to exorcise her homestead.
“After exorcising the homestead Madzibaba Sadza convinced the granny that he could secure a job for her 17-year-old granddaughter. The granny agreed and he left with the minor to Nkayi to conduct another exorcism,” said a resident.
Sibanda went on to expose the s_x offender’s shenanigans.
“On 12 December 2020 at around 4.30am, after a healing session he ordered his aide known as Madzibaba Mthembo to take the minor to a secluded room which was about 200 metres away from his bedroom hut. The unsuspecting minor went there. He (Madzibaba Sadza) followed them with a packet of chips and gave it to the minor. Madzibaba Mthembo left them in the room.
Madzibaba Sadza undressed and remained naked. He ordered the minor to undress. The minor initially refused but he threatened to stab her with a knife. The teenager unwillingly took off her clothes and he licked her private parts before r_ping her,” said Sibanda.
He added: “He s_xually attacked the minor once again at around midday and once the following morning. He gave her a tortoise and said she should allow it to suck her br3ast so that she would make money. The minor said the tortoise sucked her during the night.”
On 13 December 2020 they left Nkayi for Bulawayo.
“They arrived at his lodgings in Pelandaba suburb and put up at his rented room where during the night he r_ped her and let his tortoise suck her br3ast and insisted that she must let it suck her and when they go to South Africa she would secure a well-paying job and get rich instantly,” said Sibanda.
The minor managed to escape after Madzibaba Sadza went to take a bath.
She narrated her ordeal to a neighbour who informed other residents.
“Unfortunately when we went to apprehend Madzibaba Sadza we found that he had fled. We then took the minor to Western Commonage police station and made a report,” said another resident who only identified herself as Khethiwe.
Bulawayo police spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube said: “We are investigating a case of r_pe where a self-proclaimed prophet allegedly r_ped a minor several times and also assigned his tortoise to suck the minor’s br3ast for ritual purposes.
He added: “We are appealing to members of the public to seek understanding of how God’s services are done or provided. Normal and genuine services and prayers are conducted in church.”
Insp Ncube appealed for information that may lead to the arrest of the Madzibaba Sadza who is on the run.
Councillor for the area Frank Javangwe said: “We urge community members to be on alert for such fake prophets who take advantage of unsuspecting people. As a community we deplore such evil acts and if anyone comes across him (Madzibaba Sadza) they must report him to the police.”
The Member of Parliament for Mpopoma-Pelandaba constituency Charles Moyo said: “As a constituency we bemoan such a devilish deed, it’s against our culture and we are appealing to the community of Bulawayo and whoever could have information that may lead to the arrest of Madzibaba Sadza to contact any nearest police station. I urge community members to report such cases to community leadership.”
