EMBATTLED founder of RGM End Time Message Church Robert Martin Gumbura’s three wives, facing charges of possessing pornographic material, are set to stand trial today.

BY SENIOR REPORTER

Gumbura is facing rape charges.

The three women — Choice Neganye (32), Amadeus Mutakwa (32) and Pamela Mukandawire (27) — who are charged together with other female members from their church, were remanded to today for trial during their last court appearance.

The others accused are Runyararo Musvosvi (27), Rutendo Sekai Mandiya (28), Veronica Mbanga (27), Tendai Kwatara (34) and Moreblessing Takawira (35).
The trial was moved to today to allow defence counsel Rekai Maphosa an opportunity to take instructions from her clients although the State, represented by Michael Reza, had indicated that it was ready to proceed to trial.

The State will call the Censorship Board chairperson James Malaba to testify.

The women are facing charges of production and dissemination of undesirable pictures together with other female church members who all reside at Gumbura’s house at 6 Helena Close in Malborough. They are currently on $30 bail each.

The State’s case is that on October 21 last year, a team of police officers from the Victim-Friendly Unit received information that there were incidences of abuse against women and children at Gumbura’s residence.

The following day, it is alleged, a team of five police officers went to the house to carry out a search. During the search, the police officers recovered 16 pornographic DVDs and 57 pictures of the accused persons posing naked.

The court heard that the pictures were taken to the Censorship and Entertainment Board for opinion and Malaba concluded that 49 of them were “indecent, obscene and objectional hence should therefore be rejected, banned and prohibited”.

The pictures are set to be produced in court as exhibits.

  1. these are not wives they are witches, witches are those that move around naked, witches can help men to rape other women for ritual purposes. they should be given 450hrs of community work at the Harare General hospital mortuary, their companion Gumbura should be given 140yrs in jail.

  2. This indicates that the so called RMG church is rotten to the core. It seems a lot of undesirable things happened in this church which points that these pple had nothing to do with the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ but only want to expose their naked bodies. I think this church shld be called Wapusapusa coz of the rape cases of the leader and the nakedness of his wives and other ladies in his church. What real was being preached in this church has nothing near what the Bible says. Chechi iyi yakaora vakomana.

    • SHUWA .

      MUCHENJERE MURUME UYU ANGANGOITA SA JIMY JONES OF THE GUYANA TRAGEDY. IYE GUMBURA AITOTI HE SUPPORTS WHAT JIMY JONES DID.

      BATAI MUNHU.
      NO BAIL FOR GUMBURA HE MUST ROT IN JAIL
      RAPE CASES I 10 YEARS PAMUNHU, SO 7 *10 = 70 YEARS IN JAIL MOZOBVISAWO 10 YEARS ON CONDITION OF GOOD BEHAVIOUR

  3. Gumbura is not alone in this game there is also one marvellous shumba who owns Regal Insurance and the fraud of the decade in cattle Ownership society who formed his own Independent End Time message church and does exactly what gumbura was doing.

  4. INASMUCH AS GUMBURA IS WRONG AND GUILTY OF SPIRITUAL TREASON, SOME OF THE ALLEGED RAPE VICTIMS, I SUPPOSE, GLADLY OPENED THEIR LEGS FOR HIM TO PIPE THEM AND QUENCH HIS SEEMINGLY INSATIABLE SEXUAL APPETITE, BEING THE MONSTER THAT HE IS. IN THE MAJORITY OF THESE CASES, IT WAS A MATTER OF CONSENSUAL SEX, I GUESS.

    PICTURE THIS. AN ADULT TELLS THE COURT THAT WHEN GUMBURA WANTED TO SEX HER, HE DISCOVERED SHE WAS MENSTRUATING AND ORDERED HER TO GO AND WASH HER PRIVATES; SHE WENT TO WASH HERSELF , CAME BACK WHEREVER GUMBURA WAS AND, SADLY, GOT “RAPED”. MY FOOT, THIS MAKES ME SICK. IS THAT RAPE?

  5. hahahaa! many of these pastors are just wolves in sheep skins. remember bishop Pius Ncube of the catholic church. there is also Bishop Erasmus Wutaunashe of the FOG church who does exactly zvinoita Gumbura. vanhu ava vanogumbura zveshuwa.

  6. i totally agree with you Mutendi. uyu we FOGO takatohwa kuti unechipare nechikoronyera chakaoma. kwahi unemukadzi kuHarare, nevamwe vaviri vhitori. vasikana nevakadzi vevanhu anoti ndevakezve, nxa!!!!!!! gumbura number 2 chaiye.

  7. what kind of leadership are pastors and prophets of today portrayng?ls this freedom we have that every peter and paul can run a selfstyled church?can the hurumend intervene in the creation and running of these domestic churches for the love of people…

  8. Gogogoyi pfacha tasvika pakarepo paChitown apo kwahi waripo umwe baba weEnd time message anevakadzi 17 tahomuwana zvakare Gumbura number three. Same maitiro
