Police in Harare have arrested a female Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) Radio Zimbabwe presenter on allegations she extorted self-styled prophet, Tapuwa Freddy.
NewZimbabwe.com reported police sources as saying the presenter, whose identity has not been divulged to the media, has been extorting the Glenview-based flamboyant cleric for a full year.
The presenter has reportedly of late been demanding US$15 000 from the charismatic preacher. Said the source:
The prophet tried to negotiate the figure down to US$12 000 and she then raised the figure to US$200 000.
The preacher then offered a Mercedes Benz vehicle and she accepted it.
After getting the car she then made another demand of US$15 000.
Freddy then reported the case leading to her arrest.
