Preacher charged for child molestation back on pulpit

A shamed preacher who sexually assaulted members of his flock is back in the fold at the church he helped create.

 

Walter Masocha, 51, self-styled 'prophet' and founder of the Agape for All Nations church, dodged a jail term earlier this year for groping a deaconess and molesting a schoolgirl.

The Zimbabwe-born preacher molested members while leading the Agape for All Nations church, it has been said.

He regularly invited women worshippers to private “surgeries” held in his bedroom but banned their husbands from attending, the Daily Record reported.

After his conviction, the Stirling church said they “apologised for any harm done to those affected” and announced the 51-year-old was suspended.

But the preacher is still a central figure in the organisation. A video posted on Agape’s website shows Masocha front and centre during a church event in July, just a month after he was sentenced to a community payback order

Wearing a bright blue blazer, he smiles during an event in Barnsley Metrodome. He doesn’t preach but the camera lingers on him standing in the front row.

The mum of his schoolgirl victim who can’t be named for legal reasons said:

“I have a child who is still suffering and has still not recovered. She has hallucinations and is in counselling. There is nothing we can do. This is a paedophile and nothing has been done to him. Even now, we hear that he tells people that the community service he was given is good. He has no conscience or no guilt over what he has done. He is utterly proud. He does not qualify to be on the streets, let alone in church. They are mocking God.”
