Reverend Obadiah Musindo, associated with Zanu-PF and part of the Destiny for Africa Network (DAN), is allegedly engaging in a disturbing pattern of locking up vulnerable girls (names provided) in a Harare hotel for his sexual gratification. He reportedly uses threats to silence these individuals should they contemplate reporting his actions, according to information gathered by NewZimbabwe.com.

Musindo has a history of controversy, having faced accusations of raping his housemaid in 2004 and subsequently spending over a decade trying to prevent the case from reaching court. Additionally, he has faced multiple arrests related to fraud and other offenses, with the most recent incident occurring in February of this year when he was accused of defrauding a colleague of US$5,800.

Sources close to the matter have disclosed the names of some of Musindo's victims, revealing that he leverages his Zanu-PF connections to intimidate the girls and occasionally dangle employment opportunities as incentives.

A member of the hotel staff has provided further information, including the specific room number where Musindo allegedly conducts these activities. The hotel in question is located on the outskirts of Harare's Central Business District (CBD).

It has also come to light that Musindo impregnated an orphan he was supposedly caring for (name provided).

"Musindo has been engaging in these actions for several years, and the hotel continues to accommodate him despite being fully aware of his behavior," noted a source at the five-star hotel. "The victims are hesitant to report the incidents to the police due to his threats and the promises he makes to them, such as offering employment or financial support for their projects."

Musindo responded to these allegations by dismissing them as mere rumors that should not be published. He also mentioned that he would provide the contact information of one of the alleged victims, inviting reporters to speak to her directly. He defended his actions by citing the visits of his daughters to the hotel, suggesting that these visits should dispel any misconceptions.

The well-known cleric is recognized for his involvement in Zanu-PF campaigns and, at one point, referred to the late President Robert Mugabe as "Black Moses," promising him two million votes in the 2013 general elections.
