One of the women who have stepped foward says that she is not surprised that Chenai Maenzanise has denied that she was abused by Prophet Magaya.

“Everyone at PHD knew about her case and we are not surprised that she has turned against her mother, chances are she was paid off,” Sarah Maruta told the Sunday Mail

“Besides, there came a time when we went to church and we knew every girl who was being handed an envelope, we knew what it meant — she would have slept with the prophet.”

She also alleged that whenever an announcement was made in church that the prophet was looking for 17-year-olds or university student girls to employ, “we knew what it meant, he was looking for new girls”.
