A prophet Abraham Mlazi who raped a “barren” woman seeking prayers to have a child has been jailed.

Mlazi will serve 13years in jail after being sentenced by Chitungwiza magistrate Esthere Chivasa.

The woman was raped by the prophet while seeking prayers to have a child from the ”man of God”.

Abraham Mlazi allegedly told the woman that to be healed of barrenness, she should have sexual intercourse with the prophet, which she refused.

However the court heard that Mlazi forced himself on the young woman by pushing down the young woman who was kneeling for prayers and raped her.

The court was told that after raping the woman, Mlazi allegedly threatened the woman that she would vomit blood for three days if she revealed the matter

In August again Mlazi called the woman again and raped her again prompting her to tell her husband who reported the matter to the police
