Gumbura, 63, was convicted on four counts of rape in 2014 and one of possession of pornography. A judge jailed him 50 years for rape and conditionally suspended 10 years, leaving the polygamous RMG Independent End Time Message preacher to serve an effective 40 years.
High Court judges Charles Hungwe and Edith Mushore, sitting as an appeal court, conceded that the 40-year sentence by magistrate Hosea Mujaya was harshly excessive. They replaced the sentence with 25 years, five of which were suspended for good behavior.
While he was scheduled to be released as soon as 2025 , we are receining some reports that he has passed on at CHikurubi Maximum Prison just a few hours ago
