Forty six year-old Pedzai Muyambo last Sunday threw the congregation at Prophet Adventure Mutepfa’s Revival Centre Church’s Dangamvura assembly, Zimbabwe into a state of shock.
Reports say she collapsed and died during deliverance time. A member of the congregation said Pedzai had collapsed during deliverance time at around 3pm, but no-one realised it, until after two hours, when the woman was still motionless on the floor:
“It is normal in our church to fall down during worship or deliverance service. She fell down and everyone thought it was the Holy Spirit working on her. It was until 5pm when someone alerted the church authorities that Sister Pedzai was still lying motionless on the ground. They tried to deliver her because they thought she was possessed by evil spirits, but all their efforts were in vain. She never moved an inch. That is when she was rushed to hospital and was pronounced dead upon arrival. It is a sad thing and we are still shocked,” she said.
However, one of the church’s youthful pastors, David Waerera said Pedzai died at the hospital and not in the church.
He also dismissed claims that the deceased died in the church premises but at the hospital, pointing that she did not fall during church service, or inside the church building, but was after service when people had gone that she was carried back into the church in an unconscious state.
