Prophet Bushiri’s Spokesperson Maynard Manyowa Arrested For Assaulting First Wife

Zimbabwean journalist Maynard Manyowa appeared in court on Wednesday for violating the Domestic Violence Act after he allegedly assaulted his first wife, Mutsa Guta.

Manyowa who previously served as Prophet Shepherd Bushiri’s spokesperson allegedly assaulted Mutsa after she refused to hand over the title deeds to the couple’s house.

Manyowa is a self-professed polygamist and in 2021 he announced the arrival of a third wife, Tsholofelo Manyowa. He is also married to South African-born photojournalist Boipelo Manyowa.

In 2018, Manyowa became a household name in Zimbabwe after making an appearance at the Motlanthe Commission of Inquiry into the August 1 shootings as a witness.

The former spokesperson for Malawian Prophet Shepherd Bushiri allegedly assaulted Mutsa following a row over title deeds to the house where Mutsa is currently staying with her two children.

According to lifestyle tabloid H-Metro, Mutsa refused to hand over the title deeds because she was worried that Manyowa intended to sell the house. Incensed with her non-compliance, the journalist is alleged to have assaulted Mutsa “left right and centre.”

The matter was reported to the police and Maynard Manyowa was arrested.

He has also been accused of being a deadbeat dad. Manyowa has been allegedly failing to take care of his children forcing his wife Mutsa to make ends meet.

After Manyowa appeared in court on Wednesday, a woman called Rumbidzai Makuwerere who identified herself as Mutsa Guta’s sister started a petition against him.

She shared a photo of Mutsa’s battered face and narrated the details of the alleged assault. At the time of publishing, the petition had over 300 signatures.

Part of the petition reads,

It is with a heavy heart that l come to you. I am in pain because of the inhumanity shown by fellow Zimbabweans. Maynard Manyowa married my sister and they had two children. You all know this story, Maynard then married another woman and it is funny how they looked like one whole big family when in insense they are not.

Maynard stopped paying bills and taking care of the family and my sister Mutsa had to make ends meet as a woman such that the children survive. The one house they had bought together during their marriage when all was still rosy, Maynard came for the title deeds. Mutsa was using this house to shelter the children and some parts of it were sublet for rental to get extra money.

Maynard now wants this house for his new family in the UK. They now want this same house again for themselves. My fellow Zimbabweans, Maynard beat my sister left right and centre for the title deeds.

We reported him to the Police Station kuCentral but he came with a C10 and he was bailed out. Please help me advocate for justice. Maynard Manyowa is a violent and selfish man saka akuda kuti vana vake vaite sei? He should be arrested.
