A TRADITIONAL healer, based in Mabelreign, has sensationally claimed that spirit mediums are similar to the Holy Spirit in the Christian faith.
Sekuru Tasvo, whose real name is Gift Muzanenhamo, said this in a wide-ranging interview with H-Metro at his shrine yesterday.
He has been attracting huge numbers, in terms of the people, who are attending his shrine.
Reports claim some now spend about a week, after booking, before they can see him.
He claimed he used to heal the sick using traditional herbs when he was a prophet before he turned to traditional healing.
Sekuru Tasvo also claimed he had helped some church leaders possess unquestionable powers in their denominations.
“I received supernatural powers at the age of 15 and became a powerful prophet,” said Sekuru Tasvo.
“I would use traditional herbs in healing church members and other people.
“The power I was using is the one named in the Bible as the Holy Spirit.
“Handiti munoti muzita raBaba reMwanakomana nereMweya Mutsvene pakunamata.
“That Holy Spirit is not different from the spirit medium that possesses me and which used to possess me in my days as a Christian.
“I turned to traditional healing at the age of 25 after I got sick and my parents put some beads on my leg.
“It became clear that my ancestors wanted me to work as a traditional healer and not as a prophet.
“I miraculously disappeared from my parents and was taken to Zambia by the spirits where I stayed underwater and returned with super natural powers,” said Sekuru Tasvo.
He was born in Zvimba and claims to have powers to fly to Zambia in the spiritual realm to get charms to cure different ailments and remove goblins.
“We have weak local herbs and I have to fly to Zambia, where my ancestors originate from, for the herbs I use.
“Ndinobvisa hurombwa uye handikurudzire vanhu kuromba.
“Ukanzwa n’anga inokupa muko wekutevedzera kana uchishandisa mishonga yayo usabvume ndiyo mishonga yeurombwa iyoyo.
“When they say do not open this or that, do not set fire at some period, not to whistle or beat drums or any other instruction against our daily works, do not accept such herbs.
“Munotiwanzira basa rekuzozvibvisa.
“Pamba panonzi panezvinotaura ipapo ndipo pandinotoda kutangira basa rangu ipapo.
“I have powers to remove goblins, make one prosper, barren women conceive, cure cancer at some stages as well as epilepsy at certain stages,” he said.
Sekuru Tasvo claimed there were some fake Sekuru Tasvos fooling his clients.
“Some of my clients have been duped by fake healers using my name.
“I have been encouraging my clients to make video calls to make a booking so that they don’t fall prey to fake people,” he said.
