Court told of pastor Gumbura sex orgies

A HARARE magistrate’s court has been inspecting RMG Independent End Time Message Church founder Robert Martin Gumbura's incomplete and nearly derelict Marlborough mansion as part of his ongoing trial on charges of allegedly raping six female congregants.

Gumbura denies the charges.

One of the six women allegedly raped Gumbura, 57, claimed group sex orgies were performed at the pastor’s residence and how Gumbura thwarted her efforts to escape the sexual abuse.

Speaking early last month during cross examination before Harare regional magistrate Hosea Mujaya the woman said the sex orgies often involved married women from the church, including her own husband’s first wife.

She said one would lick Gumbura’s toes, another would kiss him while he would be having sexual intercourse with the third woman at the same time.

Meanwhile, during the inspection on Wednesday, Gumbura’s wives could be seen loitering around the compound while some of his children peeped from the windows of one of the cottages.

A ZRP investigating officer also showed court officials where he found exhibits of pornographic tapes and nude pictures of some of his wives during his first visit to the residency.

Below are pictures of the pastor’s rambling compound courtesy of Newsday.
