A 36-year-old woman has claimed to have been raped by a prophet who said he wanted to ‘pluck’ out some goblins from her back and buttocks.
The woman had sought assistance to get married to her boyfriend.
However, she says Erick Mupfumbati raped her instead .according to H-Metro Mupfumbati denied the allegations.
“The accused will state that he never at any stage had unlawful and non-consensual sex with the complainant as alleged.
“He will further deny ever having s*x with the complainant; consensual or non-consensual.
“He will state that there is bad blood between his family and that of the complainant’s family. He will state that he is a prophet whilst complainant’s mother is a witch doctor.
As such there are sour relations between the parties,” he said.
According to court records, it is alleged that on an unknown date but sometime in January 2012 the 36-year-old approached Mupfumbati at his place of residence seeking assistance.
She reportedly wanted to get help so that she would be married by her boyfriend. Upon arrival, the woman was told to enter into Mupfumbati’s ‘surgery’ for the cleansing.
Reports are that Mupfumbati told the woman to undress as he wanted to ‘pluck’ out some goblins from her back and buttocks.
The woman complied and undressed leaving her undergarments at knee level before bending down whilst touching on a sofa which was in the room.
Allegations are that Mupfumbati raped the woman and lacerated her undergarments in the process.
Mupfumbati threatened to kill the woman in the event that she takes the matter to the police.
He was arrested after the sexual attack came to light.
