Snake demands cash, spends night at police station

There was pandemonium in Zengeza 3 Extension, Chitungwiza on Monday as a woman sought help from a self-styled prophet amid claims that a snake (cobra) had travelled from Mhondoro and 'stormed' her house before demanding cash!

The unidentified prophet surrendered the dangerous reptile at St Mary's police station later. The snake was by Monday night being 'detained' at the police station to catch alive. Anxious residents thronged the police station to catch a glimpse of the cobra before they were dispersed.

Narrating the spine-chilling incident, a person who was following the issue said:

"The woman consulted the prophet requesting him to conduct prayers at her house as she was having sleepless nights. She said she was hearing voices. The prophet then accompanied her to her house where they prayed and moments later a cobra emerged and it started demanding cash and spirit medium regalia. The snake vowed not to disappear until it was given $100 and spirit medium robes. The spirit filled prophet grabbed the snake and led the woman to St Mary's police station," said the eye witness.

By last night the snake was still being kept at St Mary's police station where it had been stashed in a sack. There was no immediate comment from the police.

The prophet also claimed that the snake had indeed 'spoken'. This is however not the first time that a Zimbabwean prophet has been involved in 'miracles' involving snakes. Last year a Kambuzuma businessman, Bernard Muza was nearly beaten by angry Harare residents after Prophet Tsungai Makumbe 'spiritually' caught the youthful businessman hiding a snake in his bag while receiving prayers at Masowe.

"While prophesying, I asked him to open his bag and the puff adder snake came out and we killed it before he admitted that it was left in his possession by his late father for ritual purposes," Prophet Tsungai.
