The Matero Local Court has ordered a Lusaka prophet to be paying eight hundred thousand kwacha monthly maintenance fee for impregnating a twenty three-year old church member.
Prophet Savior Mwansa of True Prophecy Church was found guilty of impregnating Florence Banda despite denying the charge.
Facts before the court were that in August, 2012, Prophet Mwansa forcefully had sexual intercourse with Ms. Banda who had gone to his Matero residence to seek spiritual assistance over her sickness.
Banda narrates that Prophet Mwansa told her not to report the matter to the police.
But when Ms. Banda conceived, Prophet Mwansa denied having impregnated her.
And Prophet Mwansa says he was not responsible for Banda’s pregnancy because she was in an affair with another man.
In passing judgment, Senior Court Magistrate Gaston Kalala, sitting with Senior Court Magistrate, Dennis Mpundu, and Senior Court Magistrate, Sharon Sichone, said Ms Banda should go back to court after the baby is born.
