Prophet tricks another into confessing murder


Munyaradzi Goche

MUTARE –
A 23-year-old self-styled prophet recently appeared in court facing allegations
of murdering his own father for a Mazda 323 motor vehicle after he was tricked
by another prophet into writing a confession of the murder.
Derrick
Chitakatira of Chitakatira Village under Chief Zimunya, who is a prophet at
Jekeniseni Church, was remanded in custody after he pleaded not guilty on his
initial appearance.
It
is alleged that on some day in 2018, Chitakatira took the now deceased to his
shrine for spiritual cleansing where they prayed and fasted for three days.
On
the last day, Chitakatira gave his father poisoned water as part a ‘cleaning
process’ but the concoction killed him.
The
matter came to light after the accused consulted a prophet in Burma Valley
asking for spiritual protection and cleaning.
Chitakatira
allegedly told that other prophet that he was responsible for the death of his
father and wanted spiritual cover as he feared the deceased’s spirit will haunt
him.
The
prophet told him to write a letter confessing the criminal act as a
precondition for spiritual help but he then called the deceased’s relatives
from Burma Valley and showed them the confession.
The
matter was later reported to police station leading to Chitakatira arrest.
