A 46-year-old Zimbabwean woman, Pedzai Muyambo, reportedly collapsed and died during a deliverance session last Sunday, leaving congregants at the Prophet Adventure Mutepfa’s Revival Centre Church’s Dangamvura assembly in shock.

According to local media reports, a congregant who spoke anonymously, 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.
