Self-proclaimed prophet Martin Jeke allegedly deceived a 15-year old into having sex with him under the guise that the act would cure her menstrual problems and stomach pain.
According to reports reaching iHarare, the self-styled prophet, Martin Jeke, approached the girl (name withheld) at a house where she worked as a housemaid. Jeke is alleged to have informed the complainant that he had been inspired by the ‘Holy Spirit’ to assist her with her condition.
The juvenile who was persuaded into drinking a herbal concoction and squeezing another herb onto her private so as to cure her menstrual problems felt strong sexual desire after the process but the menstrual pain persisted.
Jeke left and told the complainant that he will come back later to check on her.
When he returned later in the day and told the complainant that they should have sex twice to assist with the healing process and the complainant agreed.
They went to a nearby bush and had sexual intercourse once and Jeke told her that they should have sex the following day to complete the treatment and they parted ways.
The matter only came to light after the complainant told a neighbor Vetasi Muzipe who directed her to Richard Ziwewe a member of the Police constabulary who arrested Jeke.
