The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has issued a warning to the public, particularly women, to avoid seeking spiritual healing from self-styled prophets or traditional healers in secluded areas.

This caution comes after a 26-year-old woman was raped by a fake prophet at a shrine in Dzivarasekwa 3 during the first week of May 2024.

The police have urged individuals to be cautious and report any suspicious activities to the authorities.
