Two juveniles on Tuesday testified how a Kaputa clergyman indecently assaulted them when they went to seek prayers from his church.
This is in a matter in which ‘Prophet’ Samson Chipili Kalumba of St. Moses God of the Spirit also known as (Ba Mutumwa) is accused of indecently assaulting the two juveniles, who are also twins.
Kalumba is facing two counts of indecent assault.
Narrating the ordeal before Kaputa Magistrate Victor Mukupa, the girls said they approached Kalumba in the hope that he would pray for the stomach problems which they were facing at that time.
However, they were ordered to report back with four meters of white cloth, a dish, perfume, two candles, two cups and water from the river before they could receive healing.
They said when they took the items; Kalumba performed a ritual with the water and told them to wait until an ‘angel’ told him what to do.
After a few moments, Kalumba took the ‘Holy water’ to a nearby bush where he ordered them to undress and bathed them one after the other.
But while performing this ritual, Kalumba started touching their private parts.
One girl narrated that in the process, she was meant to bend while the accused inserted something in her private parts.
They said Prophet Kalumba repeated this on each one of them in the middle of the night and told them not to reveal what had happened to anybody including each other.
They said this strange behavior, however, made them tell their parents who later apprehended Kalumba and took him to police.
Kaputa Magistrate Victor Mukupa has set September 12, 2014 for determination of whether the accused has a case to answer.
