AN apostolic sect cult leader, Ishmael Chokurongerwa has finally been granted US$1 000 bail by the High Court after languishing in jail for nearly two months following his arrest for breaching the Burial and Children’s Act, respectively.

Chokurongerwa (54), popularly known as Madzibaba Ishmael, heads the Johanne Masowe Penyera Nyika sect, which became infamous after the church’s scandals were exposed.

According to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), the High Court freed the self-styled cleric and former convict after realising that there was no longer a risk of interference, however imposing stringent bail conditions that will see him reporting three times a week at Nyabira Police Station.

“The court ruled that there was no longer any risk of interference with witnesses. He was ordered to reside at his given address until the matter is finalised and barred from conducting any church gatherings anywhere until the matter is finalised,” said the NPA.
