At Stirling Sherif Court: Former Archbishop Dr Masocha granted bail after appeal
Dr Masocha was initially denied bail but after appealing he was granted conditional bail. Obviously being as shallow as puddles and uneducated in how the criminal justice system works in the UK, the Agape Team are celebrating the bail mistaking it for freedom. They may not obviously understand what bail actually means. He has not been acquitted, he is on bail. Many dangerous criminals get conditional bail before they are sentenced. The former Archbishop has been warned not to commit any other offences whilst on bail.
However it was a dramatic day at Stirling Sherif Court today. Dramatic indeed. Two strong members of Team Jean Keyboard Warriors spent the day outside and inside the Court in the small city of Stirling. The weather was gloomy and deary, and so was the mood of the Agape Team who turned up in masses, ummm by masses I mean just over 30. Most of them looked shabby and unkempt, dressed in Agape T-shirts and a few were in overalls and comer-flash uniforms, murmuring and chanting out around the court building throughout the day. Among the chanters was Evangelist Tsitsi Chikowre and Josse Nenzou. Sharon Masocha, David Chikukwa and Caroline Joy Mahachi turned up in huge dark sunglasses, it could have been to hide the puffy eyes and at one point the atmosphere could be cut with a knife. Biological son Tafadzwa TT was also among those supporting the former Archbishop. Biological son Tinashe did not turn up. Surprisingly Sandra Masocha Chihuri was a no show, however her mother Judith Masocha the Prophetess looked gaunt and visibly strained, but was kind enough to greet the Team Jean Keyboard Warriors, awww bless. Shadreck Masocha was also said to be polite and greeting members of Team Jean. EE Amy Asante and her mother Amy were as serious as ever representing the security guards of the former Archbishop. Soliwan Enock and Portia Dube where representing the youth. Charles Chademana was representing the website team. Josse Nenzou was representing the decorating team. Mary Chikukwa was representing the evangelists. Lydia Khumalo was there representing the surgery team. Tinashe Hove was there representing the FINANCE BOARD. And the head Chef Trudy was there but sadly she was not allowed to pass over her cooked waitrose organic food to the former Archbishop. Most of the Team Agape were reported to be looking painfully thin and hungry as they continue to fast for their daddy.
After waiting all morning at Stirling Sherif Court, at 2pm sharp people were finally allowed to enter the Court Room. Agape Team caused so much havoc and disorder to the embarrassment of those around, they flooded the courtroom and sat two by two on seats meant for one person. They were ordered to leave the courtroom and only a certain number was permitted in. " It was so embarrassing Jean, the same behavior they do at the Doncaster Dome is exactly what they were doing in the Court room, I had never seen anything like it," one Keyboard warrior informed me.
However when it came to the hearing of the former Archbishop, everyone was instructed to leave the courtroom and told the hearing was going to be private due to the nature of the case. The former Archbishop was initially denied bail but appealed against the decision and was later granted bail on second hearing. Will keep you posted on upcoming hearing dates. Please take heart Team Jean keyboard warriors, murderers and rapists are granted bail. He still has to face trial . Our God is a God of justice.

Luxury now threatened, Stepdaughter Sharon Masocha posing at an expensive London get away in October 2012 were they hired a limousine and champagne and stayed at Hilton hotel for a birthday celebration. The weekend of their luxury getaway their father Masocha was on a luxury break in Macedonia and I was at home with no electricity or food due to extreme poverty. I have emails sent to Dr Masocha to prove what I am saying.
In the mean time I leave you with Muzvare Betty Makoni' press release statement building up to the 1st of March event, please be there!
Victim No more –Jean Gasho story - Girl Child Network Worldwide hosts International Women`s day
The Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Girl Child Network Worldwide which is an international development charity championing for the rights and empowerment of girls as well as supporting their education, peace, safety and justice in the home, school and communities in four countries including United Kingdom will on 1 March host International Women Day to celebrate the strength of remarkable women and girls who have broken silence on abuse happening especially in churches. Stanford Le Hope has been chosen to be the place to host the event because of its peace and quiet as well as encouraging more activities especially from the Black and Ethnic minorities around domestic violence and rape. The event coincides with many cases of Pastors being implicated in rape crimes in the church round the world.
The theme for this year, Victim No More –Jean Gasho Story is centred around a woman who broke silence on the sexual assault and many life threatening emotional abuses she experienced with a church leader in UK. This led to publication of a testimony on her blog, He Was My Daddy which has been viewed by over half a million people in UK and worldwide. Breaking silence made to a serious backlash by some members of the Agape Church leading her to seek refuge and support from Women activists like Betty Makoni and many others. Sensing this might have affected more and more women and girls in the church, Jean Gasho has been very consistent in demanding justice and to be heard and the platform on 1 March during week leading to International Women`s Day was found the most suitable one to support victims like Jean who through their courage want to share their story and help others break silence because as it stands the church leader is in police custody facing child rape allegations.
There are many prominent and high profile key note speakers from all over the UK and the world. The Special Guest and Director of Program for the day is Princess Deun Adodyin Solarin who is a renowned TV host for the Princess of Arize! Show on Ben Television and Award winning innovator, communicator and Founder of Pan Afrikan Movement ,Betty Makoni a renowned gender activist who is Founder of Girl Child Network Worldwide and also Gender Based Violence Expert for Foreign and Common Wealth Office Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative, Evangelist Elizabeth Kalonga who is Founder of House of Memory in Malawi which spearheads protection of women and girls who end up on the streets, Spiwe Harper is Author and Educationist who recently published her book Footprints In The Mist of Time, Rumbidzayi Bvunzawabaya who is a solicitor and lawyer specialising on immigration issues as well as Founder of a charity Uhuru which gives psycho social support to immigrants who face challenges have all confirmed attendance to the event. Many professionals, media personalities women pastors, musicians and women survivors of domestic violence and sexual violence from Essex and around the world are expected to grace the occasion.
`We welcome sponsorship of any form because this event is creating the so much needed platform for women from all walks of life to come together, speak out, heal and finding lasting solutions to abuse. Those who wish to support us on the day are free to do so. We have Jean who needs support and we have made sure some proceeds from the day are donated to her so that she supports her three children during this difficult time. She needs to start from somewhere and we strongly feel even though in a small way this gesture is worth it`, said Fayi Tsikwa the event coordinator.
Meanwhile Betty Makoni welcomes guests for the event to the quiet and peaceful town of Stanford Le Hope.
`I can’t think of anywhere better to create such a platform like this where we will inspire and empower each other whilst ensuring such gross violations of women`s rights stop once and for all. Many women and girls fail to report due to fear and bringing all experts who help in such cases will reassure women. Welcome to Stanford Le Hope everyone. It is time to act and not just talk., said Betty Makoni
A petition to call on UK government to assist victims of abuse through the church is doing rounds on the internet. Pastor Cindy Martin who is an Ex member of the church who will also be there
