HARARE: A senior pastor with Kingdom Fellowship ministries Wednesday appeared in court for allegedly raping his 15 year old girlfriend.

Magistrate Elijah Makomo did not ask Elisha Nhando of Borrowdale to plead as he remanded him to Thursday for trial.

But the case was to be postponed to next Monday as Makomo was absent on Thursday.

According to the state, sometime in October last year Nhando took the juvenile, whose name cannot be revealed for professional reasons, from her place of residence in Domboshawa as her guardian up to 22 June this year.

This was done following an agreement with the girl’s mother.

It is the state’s case that Nhando then propositioned the juvenile at the end of January this year, taking advantage of his wife’s absence.

According to prosecutors, the girl consented. The pastor later approached her saying he wanted to check if she had never had sex before.

It is alleged that the pastor went on to remove his pair of trousers and that he was not putting on his underwear.

Nhando then removed the girl’s skirt and underwear, made her to lie on the floor in his sitting room and had sexual intercourse once without the girl’s consent.

Prosecutors say the pastor told the girl that doing this was the only way to prove if she was still a virgin.

He then ordered her not to tell anyone and also told her that she was still a virgin.

Thereafter, the pastor continued to have sex with the girl at least twice a week whenever his wife was not at home.

The matter came to light after the pastor confessed to his wife, telling her he was in love with the girl and also revealing she was four months pregnant.

The wife called the girl’s mother who made a report at Borrowdale police station, leading to the arrest of the pastor.
