Chief Chikwaka Makes U-turn In T. Freddy Rape Case

Chief Chikwaka Makes U-turn In T. Freddy Rape Case

Chief Chikwaka on Wednesday testified in the case in which Harare-based preacher, Tapiwa Freddy, is being accused of raping ZBC presenter Rutendo Makuti.

The traditional leader said Makuti failed to substantiate the claims when she initially reported the matter to him.

Chief Chikwaka, who was cross-examined by T Freddy’s lawyers, Everson Chatambudza and Jivas Mudimu, said Rutendo gave conflicting statements on the alleged rape case.

He said Makuti reported the matter to him in November 2020 in the morning whereas earlier reports show he said the case was reported a month earlier.

Queried on why they did not report the matter to the police, Chikwaka said Makuti later told him that the two were in love. He said:

I called her asking if she had reported the matter to the police and she said no because they were already in love and it did not make any sense to me.

Chikwaka’s version of events in court was different from the one he told a local online publication and it was also different from the one he wrote in his warned and cautioned statement.

He said the court cannot rely on his online media version of events as he was overwhelmed by emotions.

Chief Chikwaka also admitted that both Freddy and Makuti are not from his area and he had no jurisdiction to preside over the matter as a chief adding that he called Freddy to his homestead his capacity as Makuti’s uncle.

Freddy then argued that Chief Chikwaka abused his office by conducting a “kangaroo” court.

Magistrate Gloria Takundwa rolled over the matter to 24 January for trial continuation.

I think varume vanogona kuona sokuti it's easy just to report a rape case which is not true.It is the most difficult subject to talk about.Most of women are being raped and just keep quiet coz kuti vanhu vese vangoziva kuti nhingi akarepewa nanhingi zvinhu zvinonyadzisa chaizvo.Kuzodudza nyaya yerape case it's easy.So please do not blame her coz it was not her fault.
She didn't apply for the rape.
It only happened without her expectation.
She was fully trusting the so called " man of God" who later disappointed her

Eish hatingarambi kuti Ruru naprophet vaidanana zvedu but nyaya ndeye rape case.I think zvakatoitika kuti Freddy pane zuva or mazuva aakamanikidzira Ruru kurara naye asingadi iyo inonzi rape.Izvi zvakarwadza Ruru panyama,mupfungwa uye mumweya ndosaka akazoudza chief vaya.I think zvokudanana naprophet zvakazouya mushure mokunge ashaya kuti angaita sei sezvo muprofita vakange vazivana naye kare.
Ndogona sokuti Ava vaviri vakazodanana zvavo asi mumoyo maRuru maingova nokurwadziwa pasi pasi pemoyo kuti tirikudanana zvedu but kundiraper kwatakaita kwakandirwadza.

@Ungwas u'v bn silent for quite somedays bro, your analysis is right but Freddy's case with GOD has already been dealt with, for the Bible itself as i've said too from the beginning "ONLY the TRUTH shall set you FREE"
Honourable Freddy has already admitted to the adultery charges, zvapera
@Mogo ppl lyk you tokuzivai. the fact that Warriors won the match you wrongly predicted its results to be 2-1 in favor of the opponent under the name Mboko doesn't change the initial IDENTITY, stop your UNRULY behaviour my bro, have the least possible attachment of UBUNTU, HUNHU pamberi pechita chevanhu. #STOPit

Even if Freddie wins before the Courts, he still has to answer "guilty" before God. CONVENIENCE versus CONSCIENCE

Repentance is everyday thing...who told you that prophets are e only ones who should be answerable before God,even you should repent daily... You might find out what made him end e relationship is because he had repented ...

The man of God has a case to answer. Freddy is trying to be smart. After raping her victim, he promised her fake love and possibly marriage. All this was done to silence Rue.

This is one example on how rapists operate. Records show that marriages resulting from such acts do not last. Victims are married and latter dumped. Society would talk about divorced. And no one will talk about the rape case. It is a strategy.

Fredy first raped Rue...that they were in love is a cover up. That Rue took time to report and that the chief is inconsistent has nothing to do on what happened in 2020...that Fredy made love with victim on several occasions...it was part of the strategy.

I AM A BUSH LAWYER LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, BUT I KNOW MY BUSHY LAW.

FIRSTLY, I TOLD YOU THAT THE CASE WAS 50/50. THEN AS THE COURT PROGRESSED, I TOLD YOU THAT THE CASE HAD TILTED IN FAVOUR OF T FREDDY. MY SCALE IS NOW 40/60 IN FAVOUR OF T FREDDY.

THE FACT THAT CHIEF CHIKWAKA'S VERSION OF WHAT HAPPENED HAS CHANGED IN THE MAGISTRATE COURT IS IMMATERIAL. IN THE MAGISTRATE COURT CHIEF CHIKWAKA WAS UNDER OATHS AS OPPOSED TO THE DAY HE WAS INTERVIEWED BY THE JOURNALIST. FULL STOP !!!!!
