Pastor’s sodomy trial opens


HARARE – A Mufakose-based pastor who allegedly developed breasts in an alleged satanism practice before forcing a congregant to sodomise him will be brought for trial today.

Tizora Kaitano, a pastor at House of Manna Church, allegedly abused Tendai Tumba before threatening him with death if he revealed the incident.

Kaitano is facing two counts of aggravated indecent assault for allegedly forcing Tumba to sodomise him.
The state alleges that Kaitano invited Tumba to 66 Mukarati Road in Mufakose, Harare where he was attending to a patient on September 28.

Kaitano allegedly threatened Tumba with death, if ever he was going to disclose what was about to happen.
It is the state’s case that Kaitano then took a bottle containing water, which he sprinkled around the whole room before rubbing oil on Tumba’s forehead.

The court heard Tumba started feeling weak and slumped into a chair.

Kaitano allegedly removed his shirt and Tumba saw breasts developing on the pastor’s chest.

The pastor allegedly fondled the weak Tumba. He went on to force Tumba to sodomise him.

Tumba allegedly regained power at a later stage and left the room.

The following morning, Tumba reportedly went to the pastor’s residence and told him that his privates were itchy but Kaitano insisted that he would die if he was to reveal the abuse.

According to state papers, Tumba later told Silas Chimbumu about the incident and the matter was reported to police, leading to Kaitano’s arrest.
