Madzibaba Ishmael’s daughter Lisa has come to the defence of her father following his arrest early this week.

Lisa said her father was not running a cult in Nyabira instead he was helping a number of people whose who are outcasts in the society.

Lisa, who is regarded as the most powerful woman at the shrine, fumed outside Norton Magistrate Court claiming no women or children were beng abused at the shrine.

“Yes, I went to school up O-Level but that has not contributed anything to my well-being. They have incarcarated him for his vision, there is no abuse at the farm and we are one big happy family.”

Lisa claimed they will rather apply to have a separate kingdom than to endure such humiliation.
