POLICE in Lusaka are investigating a complaint from a 25-year-old woman who says her prophet swindled her out of K122, 646 which she gave him to pray for.
Kerry Miti of Lusaka’s Garden House area has reported Prophet Evaristo Siazwela of Holy Chapel Pentecostal Ministries to Lusaka Central Police yesterday.
Miti, a member of Siazwela’s church which congregates at Yotam Muleya Primary School in Lusaka says over year ago, she sold her late mother’s house at price K122,646 but the Siazwela advised her that the money from the transaction needed to be prayed to deliver it from “dark forces”.
“I transferred the money to his account last year in March but up to now he has just been giving me stories,” Miti told #Kalemba.
Miti says she took the matter to the office of minister of national guidance and religious affairs last week but that Siazwela stopped picking his calls forcing her to turn to police.
Miti said she has tried all she can to have the prophet return her money but with no success.
Police spokesperson Esther Mwaata Katongo confirmed that police had recieved a complaint against clergyman and we’re currently investigating the matter.
