Kariba based pastor Patrick Mugadza who last week predicted the death of President Robert Mugabe by claiming 93-year-old would breathe his last on October 17 was arrested this Monday at the Harare Magistrates Courts.
In a message sent to the media via WhatsApp, Mugadza said police were still holding him without any charge but claimed to have overheard them saying he would be charged with undermining the authority of the President.
“Police arrested me right at the door when I was coming out of the Court. Right now, I am at (Harare) central police station for the prophecy I gave that the President will die in October.
“They say I have undermined the authority of the President though they have not formally charged me. I have not seen anyone yet save for arresting officers,” Mugadza told NewZimbabwe.com.
The pastor was due to appear in court later later on Monday for a trial in a case where he is charged with offences against the country’s flag which was wrapped around his neck during his one-man protests demo along in the capital last week.
He continued: “It is not to say that I am glad to announce this but, I am just saying it because that’s what God told me.
