The Chronicle reports that members of the apostolic sect filmed the act during a recent church service at the shrine opposite Mkoba Teachers’ College.
A congregant alleged that the leader of the sect, Madzibaba ‘Beswage,’ born Micky Mahove from Mkoba 1, based in Gweru, said eating the chicken proved that believers can eat anything without ill effects.
Madzibaba Beswage, who now commands a huge following in the city due to his “miracles” allegedly said eating the live chicken was an act of faith that would heal the congregant.
He confirmed the incident but was not clear on whether the woman devoured the chicken on his instructions.
I prophesied to the woman that she was a witch as she had devoured her two children, allegations which she was denying. This is when I ordered the spirit to manifest in her. At once she went into an trance, took a live chicken which was at the shrine and started eating it.
On her part, the woman said she had a hazy recollection of what happened.
I went to Madzibaba Beswage’s shrine where l wanted to get cleansed of some troubling spirits. Madzibaba prophesied that I had an evil spirit which makes me eat my children.
While I was trying to argue with him, I fell into a trance for almost 30 minutes. I didn’t know what I was doing. All I know is that I recovered to see blood stains on my body. My friends told me that I ate a quarter of live chicken while in a trance.
