Prosecutor General (PG) Ray Goba has been threatened with arrest by the lawyer of a rape victim. The lawyer alleges that the PG aided and abetted a rape suspect Kudakwashe Elliot by putting him out of reach of the law and not informing the police about the case. Elliot is one of the State’s witnesses expected to testify against Prophetic Healing and Deliverance (PHD) Ministries leader, Walter Magaya, who is accused of rape.
A letter from the lawyer reads:
From our understanding, you have personally interviewed Kudakwashe Elliot and that despite having knowledge of the fact that he is an accused, who had put himself beyond the reach of the law.
…You have, accordingly, aided and abetted a criminal, who has incessantly tried to put himself beyond the reach of the law. You have, in this regard, committed a serious criminal misconduct for which you are liable to be prosecuted. We, therefore, demand that you do the following within the 24 hours: explain to us, for the benefit of our client, why you have abdicated your constitutional function in this most reprehensible manner . . . Should you not do so, we shall be proceeding to make a formal report with the police for your immediate arrest and eventual prosecution.
Goba has also come under fire from the State’s main witness in the Magaya rape case who has declared that she will not testify against Magaya and alleged that Goba is trying to force her to lie.
