It’s a ;bizarre reality that a man can be ‘raped’ by a woman! Wonder no more , a Bulawayo man apparently had the worst experience or his life after his mission for spiritual cleansing in Masvingo went horribly wrong when he was allegedly ‘raped’ by a woman-cum prophetess whom he had reportedly consulted. The victim Tafadzwa Tangwena (23), from Northend suburb recounted his horrifying ordeal at the hands of a self-styled prophetess (name withheld) from an apostolic sect.
Tangwena who is nursing bruises from the alleged se_xual abuse said he met the prophetess on 19 July through a Good Samaritan. Tangwena told the Good Samaritan that he needed some spiritual deliverance since he was having problems with his mother who was always accusing him of being a problem child. After visiting the prophetess at her shrine popularly known as Pakirawa, Tangwena was told that he was being troubled by an evil spirit of destitution that needed to be quickly cleansed.
In a bid to hoodwink the unsuspecting Tangwena, the prophetess generously offered him a place to sleep at once of her tents at the shrine. She however, sternly charged him that when sleeping he should remove his pair of jeans since they were not allowed inside the healing tent.
“What happened is I left Bulawayo for Masvingo on the 15 July after I had a misunderstanding with my mother over some money I took from her. When I arrived in Masvingo I had nowhere to stay until I met a man who kindly offered me accommodation. When I narrated my problems to him, he referred me to the prophetess for assistance.
