<vote /> Prophetic Healing Deliverance Ministries (PHD) leader, Walter Magaya, told his followers during a Friday church service, shortly before his arrest, that some top politicians and government officials were plotting to silence him through trumped up charges.
Magaya told congregants that he has about 16 voice recordings of conversations of people, who had approached three of his female congregants offering them cash in exchange for framing the rape charges against him.
In the video Magaya says,
So today, I want to inform you this, after the unveiling of Bulawayo, after I spoke about stands, after I built the hotel, they are very very big senior people, who are upset with me and they want me arrested.
Two of the three girls testified during a church service, confirming the plot, saying they had been offered $100 000.
Magaya is accused of taking his victim to his Mt Pleasant home, where after showing her the house, left her inside, only to come back stark naked and forcing himself on her and later offered $200 to buy her silence. The complainant alleges he did not use protection. As part of his bail conditions, Magaya was ordered to report three times a week at the Law and Order section and was also ordered to surrender his passport to the clerk of court’s office. He is expected back in court on September 15.
