AMUTARE woman on Mon­day left hun­dreds of peo­ple who thronged Dangamvura Bei­thall grounds for the “Go back to sender Part 2” cru­sade stunned af­ter she con­fessed that she was a rit­u­al­ist who sought money- spin­ning charms.

The woman, who only iden­ti­fied her­self as Tal­ent, scared the crowd af­ter re­mov­ing a creepy and colour­ful string of waist beads which had a bot­tle con­tain­ing some red liq­uid and roots (midzi).

Visit ing Harare- based faith healer, Madz­ibaba Strive Masango of Ku­bata Kw­e­vap­os­tori Faith Church or­dered the woman to re­move it af­ter he had picked her from the crowd.

“There is some­one here who is talk­ing about me,” said Madz­ibaba Masango.

“You are des­per­ate and sin­gle. You are not mar­ried but you are busy gos­sip­ing about me. Come closer. You are putting on some waist beads. What are you us­ing them for? Go and re­move them and come back,” he said.

The vis­i­bly shaken woman showed her­self up be­fore she went to a nearby bath­room to re­move the waist beads. Women who had ac­com­pa­nied her shook their heads in dis­be­lief.

She told the gath­er­ing that the beads were charms that would en­rich her undis­closed busi­ness.

“I col­lected th­ese charms so that I would have a lot of money. I wanted to be rich.

‘‘ Th­ese charms pro­tect me,” she said. Asked if she had got­ten the wealth she looked for, she said: “Ndizvowo asi not sterek” ( Not much).

Madz­ibaba Masango then de­clared: “You are go­ing to have a fine hus­band. He will be a mus­cu­lar man and light in com­plex­ion. You will meet a lot of men but the one I have de­scribed will marry you. Why would you use those charms to en­hance your busi­ness.”

She later put on a white rob and joined the heal­ing de­liv­er­ance ses­sions.

The cru­sade, which took all day long, was broad­cast live on Di­a­mond FM and Star FM.

More than 100 peo­ple forked out $ 30 each to book a one- on- one ses­sion with the youth­ful prophet, which he later con­ducted.

Madz­ibaba Masango is known for his “Go back to sender” heal­ing mes­sage whereby he casts demons out from sick peo­ple and send them back to haunt their source. This was the prophet’s sec­ond cru­sade af­ter his maiden one at the same grounds last Mon­day.

Among other mir­a­cles, a Mozam­bi­can man, Mr Ti­tos Sit­hole who was vis­ually-im­paired claimed that his sight was re­stored by Madz­ibaba Masango dur­ing last week’s cru­sade.

“I came all the way from Mac­hazi in Mozam­bique so that Madz­ibaba would com­pletely heal me. When I came last week, I was ac­com­pa­nied by some­one. I couldn’t see. But he (Madz­ibaba Masango) touched my eyes and now I can par­tially see. I can now walk alone. But I want to drive.

‘‘ I know he will make sure that I see very clearly be­cause my left eye still needs at­ten­tion,” he said.

Seven-year old Takunda Mun­yarabvu ( 7) who was part of the con­gre­ga­tion and ac­com­pa­nied by his mother started shiv­er­ing, rolling his eyes like an epilep­tic per­son was also “re­stored” to life af­ter Madz­ibaba Masango ex­or­cised an evil spirit which wanted him dead.

His mother, More­b­less­ing Mazadza of Hob­house high- den­sity sub­urb said Takunda would some­times go un­con­scious.

“Madz­ibaba Masango rubbed some salt and milk on him and prayed for him. He vom­ited some blood and some strange things. He is now fine and I am happy. When we vis­ited sev­eral hos­pi­tals, doc­tors did not find any med­i­cal prob­lem. I was stranded and des­per­ate be­cause some­times he could just go un­con­scious. I had lost faith and hope,” she said.

Madz­ibaba Masango com­ment­ing on Takunda’s is­sue said, the lat­ter was un­der spir­i­tual at­tacks but he was go­ing to be free from the at­tacks. “Hat­i­firwe ne­munhu tinaye. Ndine zvidiki zvandichapedzisa,” he said.
