14-year-old girl from Sosera village who mysteriously disappeared at Rozva Dam in a suspected mermaid (njuzu) attack on Monday last week
miraculously came back alive after intense prayers and intercessions by an indigenous apostolic church prophet from Buhera.
Winet Govheya from Chief Marozva’s area is said to have gone missing mysteriously on her way to school.
The girl’s mother Ringanirai Hwande told TellZim News in an interview that her daughter had vanished in the presence of school mates on their way to school.
“Winet went missing on Monday and I went to seek help from church elders who instructed me not to cry or raise alarm while promising to help pray for the child’s safe return.
“Her schoolmates are not sure how she vanished. They only said she did not cross the road with others who moved fast to dodge an approaching whirlwind (chamupupuri) and never thought of checking on her,” Hwande said.
Charles Kasirai, the prophet who challenged the mermaid through prayers said he was staying with Winet for two weeks to initiate her to become a prophet.
“Most people who survive mermaid attacks become traditional healers but Winet will be a prophet. Men of God are interceding on her behalf and praying for her angel to come and guide her in her prophetic work,” Kasirai said.
