Woman Assaults Own Mother At Apostolic Shrine After Damning Prophecy
There was chaos at an apostolic shrine in Bulawayo after a woman teamed up with three other churchmates to assault her own mother following a damning ‘prophecy’ which has been delivered by the apostolic sect’s prophet.
The sad incident occured at the Garikai Masowe Church shrine in Bulawayo’s Cowdray Park suburb.
According to weekly publication B-Metro, 51-year-old Maggie Chikwara approached Prophet Arthur Matsika with a request to be prayed for.
However, during the prayer session, the prophet is said to have gone into a trance-like state and accused Chikwara of being a witch. Matsika purportedly prophesied that Chikwara moved around with a snake in the boot of her car and fed her husband dog meat. He also accused her of having planted juju at the church’s shrine. This juju is said to have been causing teenage female congregants to menstruate early.
The revelations from the man of God did not sit well with Chikwara’s teenage daughter who teamed up with the other women at the congregation to attack her own mother. The four women furiously attacked Chikwara who started bleeding.
The assault only stopped when elders from the church rushed to restrain the furious women. The four were later arrested and charged with assault.
When the four appeared before Western Commonage magistrate Jeconia Prince Ncube they did not dispute the charges and were convicted on their own pleas.
All four were sentenced to four months in prison. However, two months were suspended on the condition that the offenders do not commit any offence of which an act of violence is an element in the next 3 years. The other two months were suspended on the condition that the four convicts perform 70 hours of community service.
