Modeling instructor Mrs. Sipho Mazibuko has accused former cabinet minister Jonathan Moyo of forcing himself on her while she was pregnant over a decade ago, The Herald reports.
Mazibuko reportedly took to social media and said she made a police report after the incident which she said occurred 11 years ago and said:
Well, I have decided to empty my closet and speak out about a man who sexually abused me when I was pregnant and went on to silence me because he was very powerful and untouchable.
I went to the police to open a docket against these evil men who had tormented my mind with sexual and emotional abuse. The police recorded my statement, but nothing was done to investigate my case. Till today my docket died a natural death.
After my police report I was admitted and the same men made sure my admission to hospital was turned into a media curse. I was made a fool.
My case didn’t even see the light of day. The police did nothing to those powerful men. They continued with their lives and I languished in a mental hospital. I had given them their names in my docket, but they had to be protected because they were in Government offices, they were ministers.
Well, I was se_xually abused by Professor Jonathan Moyo and was too scared to even report or tell anyone until that fateful day 11 years ago when I went and told the police at Bulawayo Central Police Station what he had done to me.
It happened years ago, but it traumatised me. The silence was deafening. It was a loud drumbeat in my mind and I caved in. My mind couldn’t take it anymore.
If anybody wants to know more, they can talk to my lawyers. I am freeing myself of the emotional baggage. Those men are living their full lives. They abuse us and continue as if nothing happened. I will not be silenced. They can threaten me with death but I am no longer scared of them.
Jonathan Moyo is yet to address the allegations.
