Bishop Nehemiah Mutendi’s Son-in-law Sets Relative’s Houses On Fire

Bishop Nehemiah Mutendi‘s son-in-law who is also a prominent businessman in Masvingo allegedly torched his relatives’ houses on Friday 12 August 2022 over allegations that they are bewitching his family.

Mutendi is the leader of the Zion Christian Church (ZCC).

TellZim reports that Thomas Chapeta who owns Chapeta drilling, a water drilling company in Masvingo, is from Chivi’s Sese area

Chapeta is also believed to have taken over ownership of popular Masvingo spot Stopover, as well as a security company in neighbouring South Africa.

In an audio leaked to TellZim, a relative is heard pondering her future saying it is ruined and she has nowhere to stay after the homestead was torched and the food storage granary reduced to ashes. Said the lady believed to be a relative of the accused:

 Thomas airova vanhu achiti makamutsa Stephen kuti andipfukire vana vangu vapenge vachiti ndiye akamuuraya ndozvaaifamba achitaura. Nhai kune munhu angamutsiwa afa here, kune mushonga ungabata pasina ronda? Munhu akamutsiwa afa nezvake hapana zvaanoita asi kana ane zvaakabata anopfukirwa ka. Aitonzi aibvunza vanhu kuti vaitaura kuti chii parufu rwaStephen. [Thomas was enraged, he started beating up people accusing them of bringing back the spirit of Stephen as an avenging spirit that would sicken his kids (mental sickness). If Stephen died of natural death, nothging could have happened to Chapeta’s kids. Chapeta went on to ask people (relatives) what they said during the funeral wake of the late Stephen)].

The other relative (a man) is heard informing a relative in South Africa of his state of strandedness after his home was destroyed and left with nothing to look up to.

He said he was looking for an alternative accommodation after his home had been burnt down by Chapeta who also assaulted people.
