In 2013, Manhenga (35) was sentenced to 18 months in prison. However, the

So he (father) would always say that you know you are taking a winding path. I was enjoying the tours, the traveling. The thought of sitting in Bible
School gave way to the thought that I would starve, my children would not have shoes on their feet.
