A 63-year-old woman tried to kill herself after she had been raped by a pastor from RMG Independent End Time Message Church whose leader had been convicted for rape.
The suspect, Wallas Pangemyama, made his appearance in court on rape charges.
According to the victim, she was in a restroom when Pangenyama entered, gagged her mouth, and raped her. She then threw herself into a well to commit suicide.
The matter was reported to the Chivhu police but the officers did nothing. She then went to Harare to report the matter again. Only then, the suspect was detained.
