Tapiwa Freddy cleared of rape charges

By Fungai Jachi

THE leader of Goodness and Mercy Ministries Tapiwa Freddy has been cleared of rape charges by Harare Regional Magistrate Gloria Takundwa.

In her ruling, Takundwa noted that the State failed to prove its case against Freddy after there were several inconsistencies in the testimony of the complainant.

She further said the complainant departed from her material evidence which she gave to the police in her recorded statement, adding that she changed her story when giving evidence in court, while her aunt denied having been told of the second alleged rape.

Freddy was being accused of raping a 33-year old Harare woman.
