Popular Apostolic Sect leader Madzibaba Masango of the Johannes Masowe Kubata kweVapostori church has suffered a huge blow after all three of his children and a relative died in a horrific accident on Friday. According to local tabloid H-Metro, the accident occured near Surrey business centre along the Harare-Marondera road.
Madzibaba Masango, real name Strive Masango, who is popularly known as the ‘back to sender’ prophet was not in the car when the accident happened.

The three children and the relative died on the spot while Chipo and two other passengers were rushed to Marondera Hospital. She has since been transferred to Chitungwiza Central Hospital.

My wife had gone to take our children from school in Rusape and the accident took place on their way back. It is painful and I cannot imagine that I have lost all my children. Ndarwadziswa, handina chekutaura parizvino.
