A Self-styled prophet has landed in trouble after luring a teenage girl by making a false death prophecy about her mother before allegedly raping her.
The incident happened last Tuesday in Chitungwiza.
The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) confirmed the matter in a Twitter post.
“The ZRP is investigating a case of rape in which a Chitungwiza juvenile (16) fell victim to a self-styled prophet on 01/02/2022 at an open space along Tilco Road near Sangos Shops, Zengeza 3,” police said.
“The suspect approached the victim whilst walking along Tilco Road and gave her a false prophecy that her mother was going to collapse and die.
“The girl believed the prophecy and was told to bring her two undergarments so that a ritual could be performed to reverse the imminent death of her mother.
“The suspect later raped the victim after she returned with the undergarments.”
