A prophecy by a Zimbabwean pastor, Patrick Mugadza, that President Robert Mugabe will die come October this year has landed the former in court.
Report said Pastor Mugadza was on Wednesday arraigned in court for predicting the death of Mugaba, who will turn 93 next month, February 24.
It said the preacher told journalists last week that he had received a prophecy from God that Mugabe would die on Oct. 17, and was arrested on Monday after appearing at the magistrate court on a separate charge of abusing the national flag.
Mugadza also faces another charge of public nuisance for holding a one-man anti-government protest last year.
Prosecutors could not formally lay charges of criminal nuisance on Mugadza because his lawyers objected to an additional charge of “offences to persons of particular religion or race’’.
He will return to court on Thursday.
