Shame on you, ‘Prophet’!

I can’t explain how angry I was (I still am) as I listened to Tilder Live, with Tilder having in the studio, ‘Prophet’ Mapfumo and his rape victims. The bible clearly tells us not use the name of the Lord in vain yet some grown man uses the name of God to satisfy his sexual needs in the disguise of healing.

I listened carefully as the first victim narrated her ordeal. Apparently, ‘Prophet’ Mapfumo of By Grace ministries, during his one-on-one sessions, ‘saw’ that this lady had a problem with her stomach, and in order for him too heal he, she had to remove her clothes.

Sensing resistance, the man asked why people had faith in doctors, where they would remove their clothes without resistance yet they resisted removing their clothes for the ‘Man of God.’

“Because I had so much faith in the man of God, I told him I believed in him for healing and I stripped my clothes where he raped me thereafter,” she said.

Now, when people speak ill of the prophets of today, the congregants curse those who would have said out their mind. But after hearing this story, would one be justified to persecute those who do not believe in the prophets of today? And then we begin to question all those one-on-one sessions in the ‘prayer rooms’, are the rooms used for prayer only? One tends to wonder.

Maybe there are true prophets, who have been truly called to serve, but it is people like these who make us doubt the authenticity of their works. Well, don’t throw stones at me for speaking out my mind.

A grown man, with a wife and children at home (who were listening to the show), doing such a shameful thing and publicly accepting his crime and blaming it on temptation. Man, we are all tempted on a daily basis, but there’s something called self control, which you clearly don’t have which is a necessity in the field you had chosen.

The saddening thing is you have tarnished the name of prophets, you have humiliated your congregants who had so much faith in you and most of all you have disgraced your family. It’s such a shame beginning the year with the awakening that your father who’s a ‘prophet’, impregnated a young desperate woman, (could have raped more, we are not sure) and asked for sexual favors in the name of healing to a number of female congregants. In situations like these, the bold would have spoken out and more could be afraid to speak out for fear of breaking their homes and labeling in society.

It’s so unfortunate that there are people out there who are taking advantage of people in desperate situations. I know most people would be laying all the blame on the woman for being so naive. Sometimes we give in to such crap because we are desperate to get out of a lot of situations. Society expects a lot from us, and we end up acting without thinking twice, because someone has used the name of God.

I applaud the ladies for speaking out and reporting the matter to the police. ‘Prophet’ Mapfumo, I hope you get a stiff sentence, for taking advantage of desperate women and mostly for using the name of God in vain. I hope a number of church leaders who could be thinking of doing the same learn from you.

  • Ivy there is something that you are forgetting,these ladies are all not normal.Some even got pregnant yet they were married !!!My God whats happening to these women ?One even had the guts to continue having sexual relations with the man of the cloth way after she gave birth,so where is the rape ?To me all this seems consensual just like in the Gumbura case.Its high time the court makes it clear that consensual sex is not punishable(no pun intended)Yes he is a man of the cloth ,this is unacceptable.Vakadzi kwanai kwete kungoshadabura makumbo pese pese .

    • I agree with u.why punish the pastor alone handiti it was consensual.throw all of them in jail then coz ini rape yacho handina kuiona pairi

    • But ths guy is gettn it fraudently n he z in a position of power.if the woman dsnt consent to sex she is nt gona get the healing she is sooo afta.zvakangofanana nekubusiness kune mamiddle men.iwe unenge uchida chinhu so desperately but u dnt knw where to get it,then u go to a middle man who wl demand a deposit then fails to deliver.isnt there a case to answer on the part of a middleman.or else if u want a japanese car do u deal wth them direct,..kana ukanyudzwa zvinganzi hapana mhosva here

  • I am also a woman and to be honest i do not feel sorry for these so called ‘rape victims’.who in their mind sleep with their pastor while they are married.they are grown women with five senses and they had an option of saying no to the pastor.maybe they were having affairs with the pastor until they found out kuti the pastor has a lot of games muchechi.zvinhu izvi zviri kuitika mumachechi akawanda

  • Ivy yo fellow ladies are dumb n stupid how can you get cleansing by having sex

  • Vese inzenza

  • it end time jesus is coming….

  • If this guy gets a good lawyer, He might be acquitted of all the charges. There is no evidence of forced penetration & furthermore based on her story, one can conclude that to a larger extent the sex acts were consensual

  • Jazzy E

    The bible says the bible says – stupid black people

  • there is no rape here…they agreed..its just jealous that the chances of getting another round become slimer by each day, they was consent…how do we know that these women were not going to be healed in the long run…maybe nademons acho are very sturbon they need everyday cleansing and a longer time.. its spiritual ka..it depends on how much one believes.. maybe it can take 10 yrs

  • Where is this prophet from?

  • Ini I think they should all pay the price. Ngavasungwe vese. I am also a woman but I don’t worship a man of God to the extend yekubatwa muiri vangu.

  • Kubatsirwawo askana weeeeeeeeeeee kkkkkkkkkkkkkkj

  • Yes but vanamagaya vakango buda nekuti vaive nemarii

  • We always tell people about these prophets of today but they give a deaf ear. There are so many prophets using that same modus operandi and pay their victims . Nobody will ever report those cases its unfortunate this one ran out of lucky when he fail to pay the proposed 2500. Look @ magaya case(s) he just get away with it maybe bcz of enough funds.

  • Murume Mukuru

    Ivy, so your arguement is that the women were so desperate to be healed hence they agreed to sleep with the pastor? You perpetuate the notion that women can not take care of themselves….the pastor should then be punished for not realising that the women he is dealing with are idiots?

  • Itayi Mushonga

    A prophet who is sent by The Lord has thus saith the Lord and has one message from the Lord God these men are fake all the way but you must remember let us not blame the women , these men carry a anointing with them remember for you to tell and convince some Ines wife to bed my brothers and sisters it’s a very difficult thing to do just as sober as you are you will never succeed cause she will tell you no right away but under a anointing it’s easy cause you are under another kingdom spiritual, see these things how the happen in the spirit your thoughts you sin ok and the in the spirit you meet up and it happens the in the flesh things happen cause you met the person already in the spiritual kingdom and deafeated them in that kingdom and all you have to do is talk to them in the flesh and all the action happens, remember the devil is not a big red man with a folk and a big tail his a spirit just like The Lord God his not a man but a spirit there is a battle in the realms spiritual realms then the flesh has to fall after , he has an anointing of the devil remember the devil once was in heaven with God until he was thrown out of heaven he knows the word more than we know it he uses the word so we can sin then we fall in the flesh and sin cause we first fall in the spiritual kingdom then it comes to the flesh , remember there are two of us in every human being your soul is who you are your body is just rented until you pass on and it stays behind goes back to the dust and your soul is the one that meets the lord that is the real you so when you look at all these so called prophets and think they are the ones who will help you get to heaven it’s wrong this is an individual walk you must meet the lord in your heart and get a personal experience with him the most high he needs you he called you and wants to fellowship with you , seek you the kingdom of heaven and the rest will be added unto you
