A self-proclaimed prophetess of the Johanne Masowe Echishanu apostolic sect drowned in Nyaguwe River on Independence Day when she fell into a “trance” and dived into the water in Murewa.

Mashonaland East Assistant provincial police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Tendai Mwanza today confirmed the incident.

He identified the deceased woman as Susan Kandros (44) of Dzivarasekwa 1 in Harare.

Assistant Inspector Mwanza said investigations into the matter are in progress.

On the day in question Kandros held a prayer and cleansing ceremony with eight church members at Nyaguwe River.

After the ceremony it is alleged that Kandros fell into a “trance” and dived into the river where she started swimming downstream towards a deep end.

On sensing danger one of the church members identified as Joseph Pepa (39) also dived into the river in a bid to rescue Kandros but his efforts were in vain as he could not locate her.

The church members held a vigil at the river expecting Kandros to appear from the river to no avail.

They reported the matter at Juru police station the following day.

Police from the Sub-Aqua Unit attended the scene and retrieved Kandros’s body from the river.

The body was taken to Murehwa Hospital Mortuary for post-mortem.
