According to the state media, the now-deceased Prosper Chinangwe (43) approached the two women at their home in Highfields seeking spiritual healing.Ntuthuko Sihle Sithole, 19, and Sithembiso Bongani Phakathi, 40, face four counts of rape, five robberies and two burglary cases.Simao said the WHO could decide on a vaccine made by Sinopharm by the end of this week, and a vaccine made by Sinovac Biotech next week.Meiring said their paramedics and the city's  EMS arrived on the scene at 4.

During the healing session, the two used a surgical blade to make some incisions on Chinangwe’s left leg, apparently to reduce the swelling. However, in so doing, the two women nicked a blood vessel and Chinangwe started bleeding profusely. Police spokesperson Captain Thembeka Mbele said the suspects mostly targeted people who were living in the cottages alone and who came to Ulundi for work purpose. The prophetesses failed to stem the bleeding and were forced to rush their patient to the Sally Mugabe Hospital (former Harare Central Hospital). Unfortunately, Chinangwe was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital. “Charges were opened at Ulundi police station and the police began searching for the suspects who thought they can get away with crime,” said Mbele. Following a police investigation, the two spiritualists were apprehended and charged with murder. They were treated and provided with advanced life support interventions before they were transported to a nearby hospital for further care.

They are expected to appear in court soon. “They were also found in possession of properties that were stolen during the robberies and were both positively identified by the victims who were thrilled to see the perpetrators behind bars. The police warned people to exercise extreme caution when they consult self-proclaimed prophets and spiritualists for help. Cases of self-proclaimed prophets and spiritualists getting arrested are a regular feature at the courts and in the country’s newspapers. “Criminals should not think they can get away with crime in this province. Many of the prophets are arrested for preying on people seeking assistance from them, with the vast majority getting arrested for sexually related crimes. Others have also been arrested for conning their patients out of money and properties. IOL.
