A 40 year old, self-acclaimed prophet, herbalist named Lovemore Chimbwenya has caused panic in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe after reportedly raising a man from the dead.
“We used to hear that Chimbwenya was doing miracles at his home but never took the rumors seriously until reports started filtering through that he had raised a man from the dead,” said a neighbour.
Prophet Lovemore confirmed having performed the miracle. However, this was after much persuasion as he had earlier refused the news crew permission to interview him.
“Yes I did that, the man I raised had his soul temporarily seized by witches who wanted to turn him into a zombie. It’s only that I don’t want to boast about the things I do,”
Stressing that he does not like publicity, the prophet said "It’s not good to be always in the papers. I have been helping a lot of people for a while now. I got a calling when I was 16 years old, and since then I have made the handicapped walk and the sick well."
A female resident of the city said Prophet Lovemore had also healed her handicapped brother::
“My brother was not able to walk and we took him to Prophet Lovemore. We can not explain what happened only the healer knows. Everyone in the suburb knew my brother and last week people were surprised to see him walking on the streets,”
Prophet Lovemore said he does not charge for his service because it is a gift from God. “It is a gift from God so why should I charge people?”
