“I had lost faith, I did not think what the man of God prophesied would still come to pass” said Mosline Chakamufuna. She is one of prisoners benefitting from the presidential pardon President Mugabe decreed on all female prisoners in the crowded Zimbabwe prisons.
“My sister here, pointing at her younger sister Rudo, who goes to Prophet Magaya’s PHD church asked for me help from the pastor and got annointing oil. The man of God said the oil would exorcise me cleaning me of the evil spirits that made me kill my child and was not to go to jail” she uttered.
“My world came crumbling down on me when the magistrate ordered I be put away for 10years, I forgot what the man of God prophesied and started eating myself from inside. Rudo shouted from the gallery that God is able but it became hard to believe” now her watery eyes struggling to hold back the tears.
Tear drops falling from her eyes she further said that Prophet Magaya was truly a man of God and would go to his church until she dies. She promised that she would give her testimony and let the world know how God can make the impossible happen in an instant.
When asked whether it was not coincidence since it was many who got pardoned she had a perfect answer ” God’s ways are not man’s ways, I believe in all the prophesies that Pastor Magaya prophesied, nothing is impossible with God my brother” she went on.
Prophet Walter Magaya is among the most celebrated self proclaimed prophets in Zimbabwe and is the founder of Prophetic Healing Deliverance Ministries (P.H.D). Magaya rose to prominence in 2012 after his visit to T. B. Joshua (of SCOAN) who is believed to have anointed him to became a ‘great’ prophet. Prophet Magaya could not be reached for comment.
President Mugabe ordered that all females irregardless of their offences be released and remaining is a few foreigners who have to be released to their governments.
Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services (ZPCS) acting public relations officer, Superintendent Priscilla Mthembo said more than 2 000 inmates were likely to benefit from the latest presidential pardon.
For male prisoners, Mugabe pardoned all those who are under the age of 18 regardless of offences committed, and those over the age of 60, who have served two-thirds of their prison terms and all inmates in open prison.
Terminally-ill prisoners, who were unlikely to survive their prison terms, were fully pardoned regardless of offences.
Currently, the correctional facilities have a population of 19 900 inmates, although their total holding capacity is just 17 000.
