Eight prophets on Sunday have reportedly died after they were overpowered by the river currents in Zimbabwe.

According to reports, the prophets were in the river Mazowe River performing a ritual to select a baptist when the “holy stick” they were with fell into the deep waters of the river in Rushinga, Mashonaland Central Province, Zimbabwe.

It was said that the prophets fell into a trance during their annual Passover ceremony and stampeded into the river, resulting in their drowning.

The incident occurred on Saturday, 30 October 2021 at around 2: 00 pm at the Hungumwe River which lies at the confluence of Mazowe Tsvinje River.

The provincial development coordinator for Mashonaland Central Province, Timothy Maregere, who confirmed the incident, said that their bodies had since been retrieved.

“The group consisted of ten “prophets” and only two survived,” Maregere said.

Mashonaland Central deputy police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Naison Dhliwayo, on Sunday, named the deceased as Nickson Singano 29-year-old, Peter Marera 31-years-old, Tendai Marera 28-year-old, Alexeio Makombe 26-year-old, Tichawana Katiyo 32-years-old, Isaac Dokora 21-year-old, Lanciot Dokora 34-years-old and Chriswell Kunyengerera.
