WATCH: Form 3 Prophet Who Drowned During Baptism Ceremony

Gift Dube, a 19-year-old prophet at 12 Apostolic Faith Mission Church drowned on Sunday morning during a baptism ceremony while trying to save one of his cousins and congregant who had slipped into the water. Dube’s mother, Mrs Thobekile Dube told the Chronicle in an interview on Monday that her son had earlier prophesied that someone was going to die if congregants were not vigilant in prayer.

She said that the incident left her puzzled as other church members fell in a trance and only recovered when Gift had drowned. She added that Gift who was in Form Three at Amhlophe High School in Bulawayo was retrieved by the police sub-aqua unit from the shallow end of the stream and his body was still upright instead of floating sideways.

Meanwhile, Bulawayo police spokesperson Chief Inspector Precious Simango said that reports they received suggested that Gift was the first to get into the water intending to anoint it but lost control and drowned instantly.

  1. The prophet risked his life big time. He was suppose to assess the depth of the well before risking many lives. This could have been a tragedy . Jesus baptized people and John we did not hear that people drowned. Parents should stop their children from becoming extrimists.
