Daily Sun reported that the prophet said he won’t open a case as he believes his magic water will make the culprits come forward and confess.
Prophet Madzibaba Rony (31) from Chris Hani, Hammanskraal, Tshwane had a bad dream.
In his dream he said he saw four men come into his house at midnight on Monday while he and his wife, Tendai Ndou (20), were sleeping.
“I asked them what they were doing but they kept on pouring petrol and lit a match,” he said. “When I opened my eyes the room was on fire.”
Residents helped to put out the fire as they were locked in the room. They escaped with minor burns.
Madzibaba, who is a Zimbabwean prophet of St Michael’s Apostolic Church, said he doesn’t think the attack had anything to do with xenophobia.
“People from Zimbabwe set my house on fire,” he told Daily Sun.
“They are jealous of the success of my church.”
At the side of his house he has a sacred altar and a clay pot with water.
“When I sprinkle the magic water on someone’s face, he will point out the perpetrators,” he said.
A sword is buried in the shell of a egg in the middle of the sign of a cross painted with salt.
“When I point this sword at the suspects, they will confess,” he said.
He lost a plasma TV, a bed, blankets, clothing, food, R12 000 in cash and some tools.
Madzibaba said he was not interested in the police. When the police arrived at his home he allegedly sent them away saying they were useless.
Lieutenant -Colonel Sarah Lesabane of Temba police told Daily Sun: “The victim does not have to open a case. However I advise him to come forward and do it so the police can help him.”by Stephen Jakes. Source: Daily Sun
