Zimbabwean church leader gets 50 year sentence for raping congregants

Zimbabwean court officials say a church leader has been sentenced to 50 years' imprisonment for raping female congregants, forcing them to engage in sex orgies at his home, and for possessing pornography.

According to court documents viewed Tuesday, Magistrate Hosea Mujaya described Robert Gumbura, leader of RMG Independent End of Time Message, a religious sect, as a "wolf in sheep's skin" who abused his followers' trust.

It is alleged Gumbura coerced the women to perform sex orgies with him threatening to "commit them into Satan's hands" if they refused.

Gumbura, 57, who has 11 wives married under cultural tradition, and 30 children, pleaded not guilty to the charges maintaining the sexual acts were consensual and led to marriage if the women became pregnant, as part of his sect's doctrine.

@ Ruralgirl, I tend to ask myself the same question, what possess a person to be misled in such an indecent manner. How on earth will I allow someone to touch my private parts in the name of prayer. People need not take their problems to heart.

@ Tabza325is, Not at all. Maybe it was lack of understanding on my part cause when you say "God blessed it" sounded to me as if you are saying, because God blessed the the killas and shaddy characters in the old testament he should be blessed too.. As I said, my mistake
