Prominent Zimbabwean prophet, Apostle Chiwenga has finally broke his silence on why he fled Zimbabwe.
In a video widely circulating on social media, the self proclaimed prophet said he fled Zimbabwe because he was being persecuted.
He defended himself saying that he is not the first man to escape persecution.
“I learnt this from my master Jesus Christ, he used to escape persecution. I have never said I will not run away from Zimbabwe, I only said I am not afraid to die,” he said.
Few weeks ago, the Harare street preacher Apostle Talent Chiwenga reportedly fled his house in the capital following heightened surveillance of his church and home by people in unmarked vehicles.
According to Human Rights Watch, the outspoken preacher told Dewa Mavhinga by “phone that he believes the Zimbabwean authorities have dispatched a team of state agents known as the ‘Ferret team’ to kill him for his activism, following several failed attempts over the last two years.”
