A self-styled Gokwe prophet got himself into trouble after he forced a juvenile to play with his erect manhood under the guise of a virginity test.
The prophet, Innocent Mufandawana (21) of 1501 Light Industry in Gokwe, allegedly connived with the juvenilea��s mother and agreed that the prophet would take the juvenile, a Form 4 pupil to a river for exorcism of evil spirits.
On 24 July this year, the juvenilea��s mother, whose name was not mentioned, ordered her to accompany Mafandawana to Sesame River for the exorcism process.
Upon arrival at the river, Mafandawana ordered the girl to take off all her clothes.
After she complied, the prophet ordered her to kneel down and he inserted his fingers into her vagina purporting to be testing if she was still a virgin.
He then begged to have sexual intercourse with her but she turned him down.
The prophet, however, continued inserting his fingers into her vagina and fondled her breasts telling her it was a rehearsal of what they were going to do the following day.
He went on to pour water onto herA� head before ordering her to touch and play with his erect manhood until he ejaculated.
The prophet then told the girl that they would complete the exorcism exercise at his homestead.
Along the way, the girl managed to escape and she made a report to the police leading to the arrest of the prophet.
He was arraigned before Gokwe Magistrate Musaiona Shortgame who remanded him in custody to 5 September after he pleaded not guilty.
