A Chimanimani based self-proclaimed prophet suspected of dating married women was abducted and deported to Mozambique as punishment for his wrongdoings.
Naison Sithole aged 35, was allegedly kidnapped by two Mozambican nationals and their Zimbabwean accomplice and taken to the neighbouring country.
The trio accused the self-proclaimed prophet of having extramarital affairs with their wives after taking advantage of their vulnerabilities when they sought spiritual help from him.
The police spokesperson for Manicaland Province, Inspector Luxson Chananda confirmed the incident, saying police has since launched a manhunt for the accused persons.
According to a ZBC News report, the three only identified as Joro, Chokwarara and Maphosa allegedly took Sithole to Mozambique where they assaulted him before demanding 10 thousand rands from his wife as a ransom for his safe return.
After the matter was reported to the police, community leaders from Chikwidzire village in Mozambique, where Sithole was being held were roped in and helped negotiate for his release.
