A senior pastor of Rhema Ministries in Chinhoyi, Zimbabwe, Jonah Marecha, has reportedly impregnated his lover and engaged a doctor to terminate her six-week old pregnancy on grounds that he was not ready to marry.
Marecha allegedly impregnated one of his members identified as Hannah and secretly approached gynecologist, Ashton Goredema, for abortionn paying $30.
Hannah told Daily Mirror Zimbabwe that the church main leader Prophet Tinashe Mugonda threatened her with either death or poverty if she was to disclose the issued he feared would destroy the church.
She said, “I was threatened with either death or poverty if I was not to comply with Jonah’s orders to abort the pregnancy.
“Jonah referred me to doctor Goredema at Chinhoyi Hospital and I questioned why he wanted to do such an evil act and he told me he had already paid for the procedure.
“I have my whatsapp and audio conversation with the doctor and that of prophet Mugonda, who is always threatening me for exposing their evil acts in church.
“Prophet Mugonda is now saying Rhema is an inter- denominational group not a church and Jonah is not one of his pastors after I threatened to expose his secrets that included dating church members along with his junior pastors. My health was affected following the abortion and I’m facing complications.”
