A Johane Masowe Apostolic Church prophet shown appearing to be predicting the Covid-19 pandemic in a video, which went viral on social media for almost three years, has finally been identified.
Budiriro-based prophet Herbert Senda, popularly known as Madzibaba Enoch, is claiming ownership of the video where a preacher on December 31, 2018 predicated a human disaster like a global pandemic.
Many people who saw the video believe the prophet was spot-on after the advent of the deadly Covid-19 pandemic, which has ravaged nations across the globe.
In the video, Madzibaba Enoch warned Zimbabweans of the global disease where he encouraged people to pray to save lives.
Standard Style caught up with the media-shy prophet who was in the company of bodyguards. However, he referred this publication to the church’s spokesperson.
“Thank you for the opportunity, but l am referring you to our church spokesperson Arsher Mutizwa since l cannot speak on behalf of the church,” Madzibaba Enoch said.
Mutizwa claimed the video was from their Budiriro shrine.
“I can confirm that the video was from our church and it was the Holy Spirit speaking in Madzibaba Enoch’s body,” Mutizwa said.
“People have taken advantage of our silence and are claiming to own that video because in our church, it is taboo to film the Holy Spirit talking, but one mischievous congregant leaked it, but we are glad the prophecy came to pass.”
People from different parts of the country throng the shrine with different problems seeking help from Madzibaba Enoch.
“I have been kept here for the past six days since the man of God is not accessible. l came from Chipinge and we are in a lockdown, hence he was not conducting services. However he is attending to individual cases,” said Fungai Sithole.
