The woman who accused PHD’s Leader Prophet Walter Magaya of rape has denied that she had been paid by the prophet to withdraw her case. She said Magaya had no influence in her decision to withdraw the case, neither had he contacted or paid her.“Please note that I was not forced by anyone to withdraw my case.
It should be noted that at the time of the withdrawal, the accused has not contacted me or given me money to withdraw. I did this out of my own free will,” she said in an affidavit.
The final decision on whether to set Magaya free or not now lies with the PG’s office since it must determine the route a case follows. Magaya will be back in court on November 30 following the dismissal of his application for refusal of further remand.
The woman has officially filed papers with the Prosecutor General’s office and the Z.R.P dropping the charges. She also communicated her decision to Prophet Magaya’s lawyer.
