A self-proclaimed prophetess of the Johanne Masowe weChishanu sect drowned in Juru in Goromonzi district last week while holding a prayer and cleansing session.

Assistant provincial police spokesperson for Mashonaland East, Tendai Mwanza confirmed the death of Susan Kadros (44).

Mwanza said on the fateful day Kandros, a self-proclaimed prophetess, held a prayer and cleansing ceremony with eight fellow church members at Nyaguwe River Bridge. After the ceremony, it is alleged that Kandros fell into a trance, dived into the river and swam downstream to the deep end.

On sensing danger, one of the church members, Joseph Pepa (39) also dived into the water in a bid to rescue Kandros.

The prophetess however drowned before she could be rescued and other church members failed to locate her body.

“The church members held a night vigil expecting her to emerge from the water but to no avail,” said Mwanza.

A report was made at Juru Police Station and the police sub-aqua unit retrieved the body which was taken to Murehwa Hospital for post- mortem.

Mwanza appealed to members of the public to desist from swimming in flooded rivers.
