Landlord accuses prophet of using juju to evade rent payment for six months

A Zimbabwean Prophet, Madzibaba Simbarashe Comrade Chinyanga, has been accused by his landlord of using African magic to evade paying rent of about six months.

Local media reports that the landlord reported the matter to the police after several attempts to retrieve the rent failed.

The prophet was alleged to have used charms and a live monitoring lizard to intimidate his landlord whenever he visited to ask for the rent.

He became frustrated with the spiritualists antics and sought the assistance of a neighbour who was assaulted by Chinyanga upon approaching him. It was gathered that that was the straw that broke the camel’s back as he decided to get the police and other community members involved.

The residents confronted the cleric and invited the police to uncover the tools of his mysterious trade. The community members then decided to remove his belongings from the property and ultimately evicted him.

However, Chinyanga’s wife was not spared from the treatment as she was compelled to relocate their belongings and find alternative accommodation as the situation heightened.

Acording to a source, the prophet was consequently detained at St Mary’s Police Station on charges of assault.

H-Metro quoted a source; “He wasn’t paying rent, taking advantage of having powers to cause misfortune to his landlord since he is young following the death of his parents.

“We do not want him anymore in our area because he has divided a number of families with falsehoods.”
