A self-style Tanzanian prophet, Nabii Tito is currently cooling his heels behind bars after he was arrested following indecency, Tuko reports.
Nabii Tito has reportedly been the talk of town for the past few days after sharing photos of himself kissing his wife and house girl.
Photos of Nabii Tito kissing the two women made rounds on social media and irked quite a number of Tanzanians and East Africans who called him out for his queer behaviors.
This is reportedly not all that warranted Tito’s arrest.The self-proclaimed prophet was also spotted preaching while drinking alcohol.
Confirming the arrest, IGP Simon Sirro said Tito had been arrested following public complaints and will be dealt with accordingly.
Tito’s arrest was lauded by a cross section of Tanzanians who congratulated the police for cracking the whip on rogue,rather fake men of God.
Recall that in August, 2017, Police in South Africa arrested a self-proclaimed prophet who allegedly raped four girls inside his church under the guise he was praying for them.
The 32-year-old leader of a church in Burgersdorp outside Tzaneen in Limpopo was arrested after the rape of two 14-year-olds, a 15-year-old and 17-year-old were reported.
Provincial police spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe, who confirmed the incident yesterday said the man would appear at the Lenyenye Magistrate’s Court…
Ngoepe said the prophet, who is married with three children, allegedly raped the girls who were ushers inside the church after inviting them for a prayer session on separate occasions.
Two mothers of the victims yesterday, recounted how their daughters were sexually assaulted.
The mother of the 15-year-old victim said she was initially happy when her daughter started attending the church last year.
“I am so hurt and disappointed. I thought my child was going there to improve her life but I was wrong,” she told The Sowetan.
She said what was going on in church was exposed by a pastor from another church in a meeting held by the residents and a community policing forum on Sunday.
“When I asked my daughter if she had been raped she started crying,” she said.
The woman said her daughter told her she was raped in December allegedly by the prophet after he invited her for a prayer meeting.
“At first he told her that she had the mark of the devil bellow her belly button and that her breasts were being sucked by demonic baboons.”
The mother said, according to her daughter, the prophet then allegedly grabbed the girl’s breasts and started to pray.
She said her daughter returned home after the prayer. The prophet had asked her to come back.
The mother said he invited her into the small prayer room where he allegedly started to touch her and forcefully undressed her. He then allegedly pinned her down and raped her on top of the table.
“I feel so hurt. I want him to rot in jail,” said the mother, adding that the incidents were only discovered later because the teenagers were too afraid to report the man they refer to as “Papa”.
“He threatened them by saying that the Holy Spirit which he put inside them would kill them if they talk about it.”
