How Fake Prophet Duped Disabled Man of His Car and Money

A dubious prophet has found himself in serious trouble after he was arrested on Monday for duping a a disabled man of his car and cash.

According to H-metro, Elias Goma of Unit L Chitungwiza is accused of duping Givemore Chimhanda of his vehicle and US$300 claiming that he was Madzibaba Stephen Mugariri with spiritual powers to stop evil spirits from affecting his family.

Elias is alleged to have engaged a couple to lure people looking for Madzibaba Stephen and refer them to him.

He apologized to the real Madzibaba Stephen upon arrest and pledged to restitute Givemore of some of his money.

“My guys are bringing the money for Givemore just now to replace what he gave me,” he said pleading to be spared from arrest.

Givemore told H-Metro how he nearly lost his vehicle to Elias saying he took him to his home village and used more money in fuelling his hired vehicle and that of his relatives for a cleansing ceremony.

“My mother smelt a rat and stood her ground refusing to let me leave my vehicle at Elias’ shrine; he said my vehicle had evil spirits,” said Givemore.

“I later discovered that he was the fake Madzibaba Stephen when I decided to verify with a radio presenter after I discovered that he was a drunkard.

“Ndakamuwana akadhakwa uye hapana zvakabatsira pamiteuro yaakaita. I decided to enquire with a radio presenter Tilder Moyo and verified the contact numbers only to discover he was fake Madzibaba Stephen" said Givemore.

Elias was later arrested after he came to collect more money from Givemore. However, the real Madzibaba Stephen promised to help Givemore solve his problems.
