Nyamup­fukudza was or­dered not to in­ter­fere with State wit­nesses and to re­side at his ad­dress pend­ing fi­nal­i­sa­tion of the mat­ter.

The prose­cu­tor Mr Se­bas­tian Mu­tizirwa al­leged that on Oc­to­ber 2014 Msekiwa and her hus­band joined Nyamup­fukudza’s church, which is based in Glen No­rah A in Harare.

In De­cem­ber 2014 the cou­ple vis­ited Nyamup­fukudza to give him a cell phone as thanks­giv­ing.

It is al­leged that dur­ing the visit Nyamup­fukudza told the cou­ple that he had a rev­e­la­tion from God.

He claimed the Lord wanted Msekiwa to give God some­thing big in re­turn for more bless­ings.

It is al­leged that on an­other day Nyamup­fukudza showed the cou­ple a diary in which he wrote the rev­e­la­tion.

He ad­vised the cou­ple to sur­ren­der their Audi A4 to re­ceive a Mercedes Benz ML within two months.

The cou­ple com­plied and gave him the ve­hi­cle and its reg­is­tra­tion book.

It is al­leged two months passed and the cou­ple did not get the Mercedes Benz as in­di­cated by Nyamup­fukudza.
