Outspoken Pastor Talent Chiwenga Arrested
Leader and founder of Jesus Revelation Ministries, Apostle Talent Farai Chiwenga appeared before a Mutare magistrate on Tuesday facing smuggling charges.
Chiwenga (34) was arrested by Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) officials after he allegedly failed to declare imported goods at the Forbes border post.
He was remanded out of custody on a $400 bail and he will appear in court again on March 21.
The controversial anti-establishment cleric appeared in court in the company of bouncers and scores of church congregants.
On December 21, 2019, Chiwenga allegedly passed through Forbes border post on his way from Mozambique in the company of Darlington Moyo and Lovemore Kanyuru.
