A United Methodist pastor Moyoungoziva Murawuro has been arraigned before a Harare Magistrate, facing charges of raping a fourteen year old girl.
The 40 year old pastor is facing three counts of raping a 14 year old who was living under his roof.
The state led by Mr. Cuthbert Mukandiri alleges that the man of cloth took custody of the complainant in 2007 upon request by the complainantÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s mother who then left for South Africa to seek employment.
It is further alleged that Murawuro raped the complainant on three different occasions when his wife had gone out on church business.
The matter came to light this year after the mother of the complainant returned from South Africa and noted that her child was behaving strangely leading to the arrest of Pastor Moyoungoziva Murawuro.
The case has been adjourned to June 29 for trial.
