PROPHETIC Healing and Deliverance Ministries (PHD) leader Walter Magaya reportedly paid the Midlands State University student he allegedly raped US$100 000 for her to drop charges against him, Zimbo Today.com has revealed.
In September this year, it revealed that the embattled “prophet” had unleashed emissaries to lure the 25-year old woman into dropping the charges against him Sources close to the deal this week revealed that said a number of high-ranking members from Magaya’s church had been able to sweet-talk the victim into withdrawing the charges.
The sources said Magaya had paid the victim $100 000, tiny fraction of the US$5 million he was offering with the talks started.

The woman was alleged raped last year but only reported the matter to the police in August this year under pressure from her fiancé. Magaya is facing more than 100 other rape and murder charges.
