Pastor (26) Jailed 15 Years For Raping Estranged Lover

Pastor (26) Jailed 15 Years For Raping Estranged Lover

A pastor with a local Pentecostal church has been sentenced to an effective 10 years in prison for raping his estranged girlfriend.

Pastor Tafadzwa Dhliwayo (26) of Glaudina, Harare, was recently convicted of rape following a full trial before Chinhoyi magistrate, Ignatius Mugova.

He was sentenced to 15 years in jail but 5 years of the jail term were suspended on condition of good behaviour.

The complainant is a 21-year-old student at Chinhoyi University of Technology (CUT).

Prosecutor Nyasha Sibesha told the court that on 30 May 2019, Dhliwayo visited his lover in Chinhoyi to fix some problems they were having in their relationship.

The complainant’s friends allegedly excused themselves and left the two in their rented room.

The complainant told Dhliwayo she was no longer interested in the broken relationship.

Dhliwayo reportedly asked for a kiss, but the woman refused, whereupon the man of the cloth pushed the victim onto the bed, and forcibly undressed her, before raping her once.

After committing the crime, Dhliwayo left the victim in the room and fled to Harare.

On the same day, the complainant told her colleagues about the rape but they advised her against reporting the rape since they were about to write exams.

The matter only came to light in December 2019 after the victim discovered she was pregnant.

The matter was reported at Chitungwiza Police Station, leading to Dhliwayo’s arrest.

The matter was, however, transferred to Chinhoyi where the crime was committed.

Hapana rape apa, just a relationship which went your. A University student gets raped in May and only notices that she is pregnant in December??
The so called friends obviously didnt believe her rape story.

Everything in this case is Absurd.
There is high chance that there was no Rape but misunderstandings arose during the Pregnancy periods.
The Accused person did not go well with the News of the pregnancy since the So called Girlfriend had multiple ****ual partners .
We all know those girls from Unies.
The man became defiant,the Girl decided to fix him.
No love.

I agree he should appeal to high court, the story is questionable in every aspect of rape. Something was happening in the background between the two which the accused could not convince the court he needs a legal representation

This sentence of 15 years in with labour is commensurate with the seriousness of the offence although 5 years were suspended for good behaviour. It will still continue hanging over his head.
