Man-Of-God Impregnates Friend’s WifeAfter He Suffered A Stroke

65-year-old Mutare man is accusing his Muslim

clergy (Sheikh) of being responsible for his

second wife’s pregnancy after a long illicit affair

between the two.

Cabo Juma, a Muslim devotee of Mozambican

origin who suffered a stroke in 2006, bitterly

complained that the sheikh, Nordine Banda of the

church’s Dangamvura parish in Mutare has been

in love with his wife, Jessica Chiweshe, for a long

time and his efforts to seek redress within the

church yielded nothing.

Juma said the affair led to the irreparable damage

to his matrimonial relationship.

Apparently, the

two (Sheikh Banda and Juma) were very close

friends at one time.

When contacted for comment, both his wife and

Sheikh Banda dismissed the allegations.

“I really do not want to comment much on the

issue and I think the chairman of the church is

the one who can give you a comprehensive

comment. I will not say much about the

prevailing situation because I know the truth will

soon be out. They are saying I impregnated her,

but I know I am innocent. His aim is to have me

removed from this place or else get me fired

from the church, but all along I thought it will

not get this far,” said Sheikh Banda.

In a separate interview, the woman in the centre

of the storm, Jessica Chiweshe, doubted her

husband’s mental stability.

“These allegations are a mere smokescreen

meant to conceal the real issue at play. It has all

to do with the politics in the church whereby at

one point some people did not want the pastor

while others stood by him. I happened to belong

to the faction that supported the pastor. This is

where it all started and later, my husband

became so abusive to the extent that I sought

refuge at the pastor’s place and that fuelled

suspicion that I was going out with the pastor,

but that was not true. In any case, if you

managed to talk to Cabo Juma, do you think he

is mentally stable? Since he suffered a stroke in

2006 he has not been the normal man I knew all

along. I think the only thing that I have to do is

to go to court and get a peace order against this

man,” said Jessica before she declined to answer

more questions.

When the Dangamvura Islamic Society

chairman, Juma Yard, was reached for

comment, he said:

“I am the chairman and have the powers to fire

the pastor if he is wrong. If he is guilty of

sleeping with anyone’s wife then he should be

fired, but the problem is that we do not have

any evidence to support the allegations.

According to the Islamic law (the Shariah law),

there is supposed to be convincing evidence for

action to be taken against the perpetrator, but in

this case there is no evidence,” he said.

However, in wide ranging interview last week,

Juma, who is hardly fluent in Shona, maintained

that the pastor and his wife were in love.

“I am deeply hurt that my sheikh, who also

happened to be my friend at one point, could do

this to me. It all started as rumours way back

and I did not want to believe it. I started hearing

about it when I was in hospital after I suffered a

stroke. At times I would hear that the pastor

visited my place without my knowledge and it

appears he would take advantage of his

knowledge on my whereabouts. He would invite

my wife every Saturday to do the cooking at

church unlike other women who were NOT

invited personally.

“For example, on 27 March this year, when this

issue became known, I lied to him that I was

leaving for Sakubva, Devonshire where my first

wife stays. He came to my second wife’s place,

right at our bedroom window around 10.30pm

and called my wife while disguising his voice. I

pretended as if I was asleep and my wife

(Jessica) abruptly woke up, almost NAKED and

went straight to open the door for him. She

must have given signs that I was around, but I

was already angry about the whole thing and I

told them right away that I didn’t want to see the

pastor again at my place.

“I also immediately banned my wife from going

to Mozambique and Harare for business trips

because that is where they would occasionally

accompany each other. I know the pastor could

be one responsible for Jessica’s current

pregnancy since I am not the one. I’m no longer

interested in her,” he said.
