A GLEN VIEW 3 prophet has been hauled to court on allegations of stealing money from a believer.

Edson Chifunga, 25, pleaded not guilty when he appeared before Mbare magistrate Bianca Makwande on allegations of theft.

However the complainant has applied to withdraw the case from court.

It is alleged that on August 21, Chifunga approached Lindiwe Samantha and told her that he had foreseen a problem that Samantha would face.

Chifunga is also said to have said that he was a prophet who had been sent by God with a solution to the problem he had foreseen.

It is alleged that Chifunga then requested Samantha gives him US$60 and rice in return for prayer.

Samantha did as requested by Chifunga and after delivering the requirements for the solving her problem Chifunga went away.

Samantha then lodged a complaint with the police leading to Chifunga’s arrest.

Revai Mudozori appeared for the State.
