Three women have landed in trouble for allegedly raping a pastor in Zimbabwe.
The pastor, according to a prosecutor at the Magistrates’ court in Bulawayo where the women were arraigned, had gone to collect the money one of them owed him.
They allegedly invited him into the house and two of the women quickly pinned him to a bed, before the third had her way with him.
All three women: Sandra Ncube, 21, Riamuhetsi Mlauzi, 23, and Mongiwe Mpofu, 25, denied rape, but pleaded guilty to indecent assault.
The prosecutor, Mr. Petros Shoko, told the court: ‘On July 14 at 7pm, the complainant went to the accused persons’ residence to collect money which Mlauzi owed.
‘They forced him to lie on the bed and undressed him. Ncube sat on his chest and he tried to push her away. However, Mlauzi held his legs together and sat on his top, pressing him against the bed.
‘Mpofu was in another room and brought condoms and placed them on the complainant’s manhood and helped to hold him down.
‘Ncube had sexual intercourse with the complainant once without his consent,’ Shoko said.
One of the defendants, Ncube, said they were ‘only just playing around’ with the pastor.
‘We were just playing around, Your Worship. I did not think that he would take it seriously,’ she said.
Mlauzi said she only wanted to test the potency of the pastor’s manhood as he had always walked in on her while bathing with claims that he was ‘unmoved as a man of God.’
‘I just wanted to see if he was going to be aroused or not. I did not plan to execute the whole rape thing Your Worship,’ she pleaded.
The pastor had been made to undergo medical test.
Magistrate Lungile Ncube ordered that all three be remanded in custody until August 7 for a full trial.
The incident is reportedly not the first time such gang rape would happen, as three unidentified women had earlier been declared wanted for kidnapping, drugging and raping a 39-year-old teacher for two days, leaving him with bruised genitals.
Police say the women could belong to a ‘sperm bandit’ gang who steal and sell men’s semen for ‘good luck.’
