The Zimbabwe National Army and the Zimbabwe Republic police this morning raided the home of Prophetic Healing and Deliverance leader Prophet Walter Magaya.
The raid at his Mount Pleasant home was part of an undisclosed criminal investigation.
Zimbabwe Republic Police national spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the development to Herald, but did not disclose more details pertaining to the criminal investigation.
Assistant Commissioner Nyathi said: “This is in relation to ongoing criminal investigations being conducted by the police and we will release details soon.”
This is not the first time Magaya has been raided by the police. In 2018, Magaya’s Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries premises in Waterfalls, Harare, were raided by the police to recover samples of Aguma, a drug which he claimed cures HIV, AIDS and cancer.
Prior to that, the cleric was also accused of rape by some of his church members, but the charges were later dropped by the complainants.
Magaya has been in the news this week following his 3-day crusade in Kenya. The man of cloth was welcomed with wild jubilations from thousands of Kenyans at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport on 25 February 2022.
Kenyan media reported that some women were kneeling on the ground and lying prostrate in deep, fervent prayers accompanied by some weeping and talking in tongues at the airport when Magaya touched down.
He was welcomed by one of the country’s senators, Senator Phillip Mpaayei, before he was given a convoy which had a police escort.
Check out some of the pictures and videos Prophet Magaya shared on his social media accounts.
