Man burns ‘father’s goblins’

By Nhlalwenhle Ncube

When a prophet told him that his father was behind his life’s misfortunes Abednico Ntete (20) failed to control his temper and rushed to his rural home where he burnt his supposed father’s goblins and church regalia.

Little did he know he was inviting trouble for himself as his actions got him arrested.

Abednico burnt Mufandoka Ntete’s church regalia and prayer paraphernalia after being told that he was “bewitching” him.

He was arrested and appeared before Zvishavane magistrate Shepherd Mjanja facing charges of malicious damage to property.

He pleaded guilty to the charges citing that he burnt his father’s church regalia and his other prayer tools after he was told that he was the one behind his suffering in life.

“I am a domestic worker in Zvishavane and I decided to burn my father’s church regalia when my aunt prophesied that he was the one responsible for my bad luck,” he said.

The court heard that on 24 October, the accused sent his father a message telling him that he was sending the “holy ghost fire” to burn his goblins.

After a few days, Abednico, who worked in Zvishavane, arrived home unannounced and approached his father demanding answers on why he was unsuccessful in life.

When the old man was still trying to make sense of what he was saying, Abednico went into the house and took his apostolic church garments, clay pots, walking rod and bottles with sea water and burnt them.

He claimed he was burning the goblins.

The burnt property was valued at $30 and the presiding magistrate fined him $50 (or 30 days in prison).

He was also ordered to compensate the complainant before 29 December. B-Metro

    • Jesus came for a specific race the Jews not the Arabs and you that’s why most of your prayers are not answered

    • Material Man,in Matt10 Jesus aisareva physical battles. He was teaching on allegiance . Kuti mubereki wako kana asinga chikristu iwe uchida u will not attend their religuous activities. Eg panorohwa guva iwe u wont participate or contribute any cent towards such.

    • Chihamba,kindly read Matthew 28:18-20

  • People rush to maprophets for solutions as if ivo the prophets vakapedza dzavo nhambz…we are just weak to pray on our own..shame on you

  • God brought these prophets for a purpose don’t rush to dismiss them. Don’t forget that there always imitators to the real work of God. Of coz one needs to first pray but beyond your prayers God is the supreme being his solution may include help from the genuine prophets

  • The death of someone really .Is a goblin nw a living thing ?.dont rush to comment without understanding the story .thank you

  • Half pay gone,misfortune double double.Must kneel down and pray for your self and work hard.

  • False …goblins can’t be destroyed by burning

  • Mwari haasi Mwari wenyonganiso brethren ..preachers must preach Christ nrkuti shoko rinoti wawana Kristu wakwana nezvose ..goblin wl never attack munhu aneShoko rechokwadi iyi ndiyo system yemaporofita chaiyo kupesanisa mhuri ..dzidzai zvakavanzika zvaKristu all wl be well wth you ..

    • Very true how can u be attacked by goblins when God is inside you the Son is in inside you the Holy Ghost is inside you. Obviously you are a touch and die a dangerous naked wire. Psalms 91 ndosaka ndichiida naIsaiah 41:10 kuseri

    • Thanks Letie

    • havasi vese varikunamata vachidana zita raJesu vati vagona kumisidzana nezvinhu zvakadaro,nyangwe vamwe vamurikuti maprophets havasati vagona kunamata zvekusvika level iyoyo,musatsmbe nesimba reurombwa

    • Hatisikutamba naro ..its a piece of advice to such pple ..mhuri dzirikusimudzirana matemo nazvo izvi ..ngatitsvagei Mwari wechokwadi

    • Hondo iri mupfungwa and shoko ishoma muvanhu. Read the word feed eat the word live the word. Eph 4:23,Col3:10 Ronans 12:2 people need to renew their minds and they will begin to see that Greater is He that is in me than him that is in the world; and you will understand that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me; you will begin to see that You are more than a conquerer through Christ who loves you. The word of God says my people are perishing because they lack knowlege. Educate your spirit thru the word and when you see those witches and wizard you will jus say “WHO IS THIS UNCIRCUMCISED PHILISTINE” in calm way

    • Easy to say thank God your family has little to no supernatural experiences you obviously have inherited a semi clean spiritual life dont judge experiences you dont know about mugoni wepwere…….

    • ndezvehukama izvi….

    • Ah ma funnies aya

  • If you go to any prophet today with ‘a problem’ they will always have a story for you. I will challenge everyone here to tell me of anyone who has ever visited a ‘prophet’ and told that his or her problem was a bacterial or viral infection, over-drinking, malnutrition, poor financial management, laziness or ignorance. No. They always have a witch for you. Especially among your own folks!
