Killion Moyo, 65, from the Bezha village in the Umzingwane District Zimbabwe, is facing numerous child abuse charges following allegations that he married his 14 year old daughter with whom he went on to have 2 children.
In his defense the traditional healer claims he did this upon his late wife’s (Joyce Mpofu) instructions saying he was instructed to “take a woman in the family who would take her role.”
His daughter,on the other hand left him after several instances of physical and sexual abuse, leaving her two children, aged 3 and 4 years old behind.
Following this, two other ladies came up and accused him of forcing them to have sex with him, one of them being a neighbors daughter aged 23 years old who bore the herbalist two children aged 8 and 5 years old. She claimed she was sold to Moyo for cattle and a few other items. Moyo was to educate her but he instead sexually abused her. He is said to forced the girls to wear special bracelets saying they would be struck by lightening should they tell anyone about their relationship with him. Some of these relationships lasted 10 years!!
