Prophet bashes man, accusses wife of cheating

BULAWAYO - A 35-year-old prophet assaulted a man who had come to seek spiritual guidance and assistance at his home thinking that he was having an affair with his wife.

Tymon Ncube, a popular prophet in Bulawayo, found his wife Zanele Ncube standing by their home gate with Effort Ncube, 29, and he assumed that the two were having an affair before he physically attacked him with fists all over the body.

The self-styled prophet admitted to having assaulted the complainant but justified his actions when he appeared before Magistrate Tawanda Muchemwa who remanded him out of custody up to April 10 on $60 bail.

Ncube insisted his misgivings were raised because he found them talking in a suspicious manner and he believes his wife was cheating with the complainant.

He told the court the two were covering up when they claimed to be waiting for him although the complainant denied having an affair with his wife and maintained that he was waiting to get consultation with the prophet.

It is alleged that on April 3, 2014 along Fort Street, Ncube was with the accused’s wife by their home, standing at the gate waiting for

accused to come so that he could consult as he is a prophet.

The court heard that accused became angry and pummelled the complainant with fists in his face and all over the body, accusing him of being disrespectful at his house.

The police report states that complainant tried to explain to the accused that he had been directed by people to his house and his intentions were to get spiritual consultations and guidance from the accused. He was not having an affair with his wife.

The complainant sustained injuries on his face, lower back, arms and was treated at a hospital.

Just the kind of behaviour you would expect from these fake money seeking pastors and prophets. We see them everyday, some are raping female congregants, killing their fellow parishioners because they are becoming more popular than them and fighting over leadership and church assets. What is this world coming to. God is watching you tricksters masquerading as 'men of God'. BLASPHEMY!!!

In such circumstances, one would expected the prophet to prophesy as to who the guy was in relation to his wife. Since Tymon is not a real prophet he ended up beating the guy who had foolishly come to Tymon thinking he was a real prophet. At least one false prophet has been exposed !

After the assault he had to go to the hospital. The prophet couldn't heal him. Why couldn't he go to the hospital in the first place
