Apostolic Sect Member Says It's An Offence To Receive Medical Treatment

Apostolic Sect Member Says It's An Offence To Receive Medical Treatment

A member of the Johanne Marange Apostolic sect says it is an offence for any of their members to receive medical treatment.

Dorcas Mhere (47), the senior wife of Clever Maveto, said they have been using holy water, salt and cooking oil to cure all her children when they fall ill since the early 1980s.

The Maveto family, from Bikita District in Masvingo Province, is accused of burying children in a mass grave after they allegedly succumbed to measles.

Reports claimed Maveto (67), a polygamist, buried his children, aged one, three and four years – as well as a 10-month-old toddler – under the cover of darkness after they allegedly succumbed to measles-related complications last month.

Maveto has, however, refuted the allegations saying he is prepared to let anyone exhume the bodies to see for themselves that there were no mass graves at his homestead.

Meanwhile, Mhere told H-Metro that she has never been to a hospital and depends on prayers and help from prophets. She said:

It is not allowed for one to seek medical attention. You just pray for whatever illness you’re facing or consult the prophet for help.

We only use holy water, cooking oil and salt, depending on the prophet’s instructions.

When a child is born, we perform a ritual to protect the baby from measles.

For other ailments, like a running stomach, we use fresh milk and Coca-Cola, to cleanse the body.

Alice Chiyambiro, Mhere’s sister, said they also use a mixture of lemons, cooking oil and warm water for healing infants with fontanelle problems (nhova).

I feel pity for these people. God assist those who seek assistance. Prayer alone can never cure a disease.

Does Zimbabwe have laws dealing with pandemics ? If it has, is Police using those laws to persuade Apostolic Church members to take their children to hospital for treatment and if they do not those kids to the hospital, arrest and prosecute them.

Zimbabwe must do everything in its power to convince members of the Apostolic Church to take their children to hospital when they fall I'll by measles or any other pandemic.

Yes, Zimbabwe has the Public Health Act. The public Health Act can be used to declare a public health emergency wherein all Zimbabweans regardless of religion or whatever persuasion are compelled by law to comply with any directive imposed by the Ministry of health including immunisations & vaccinations. Sadly, the Public Health Act is still to be aligned with the Constitution of Zimbabwe since 2013. The problem is, our leaders rely on the support of the Mapostan'a who who give them massive votes. So they look the other way when the white robbed cult members refuse immunisation. However some apostolic sects are progressive & they embrace medical science. The Constitution also curtails rights during public & national emergencies. Maybe there there hasn't been a Public health emergency pertaining to measles yet. Remember that COVID regulations where imposed using the Public Health Act and the WHO guidelines where turned into Statutory Instruments under the PHA.

Denying children medical attention is tantamount to satanism. Kana ivo vanhu vakuru vasngade kurapwa they must allow their innocent children medical attention. If they keep behaving like animals the Gvt must arrest them without hesitation.

These are the highest level of brain wash. They are really captured by religion. Karl Max once said religion is an opium for the poor. Hosea said my people are dying because of lack of knowledge. These people needs a serious awareness and an intervention to de tocicate their mindset. They are dying alive. The world is moving forward and 20th century is over now we are close to the quarter of the 21st century. New disease are discovered, new medicine are discovered, new skills and ideas are discovered. but people are keeping captured by the nonsensical ideological thinking. My worry is zanu. it smiles watching on children dying for political gains. Out country needs a serious help form religion to politics. Religion is captured for toxic political gains. Politics is weaponized to impoverish people. Judiciary is weaponized to subjugate innocent and democratic people....Guys let's stand together, new ideas new strategies.Zanu must fall. ..

What a bunch of gibberish garbage. Heee panosara fittest kudii?
Saka unoti God created people kuti pasare maStrong breeds Here kana kuti He made people kuti tese to worship his name?
He even gave us doctors for that purpose so that we get professional help when we're sick. He gave intelligence to people to create vaccines and medicines to treat us kana tarwara and also prevent us from getting sick too.

These fxckers need to be banned chete. Kick them out to South Africa ukoko varauyiwe neDudula coz no one in Zim wants their kids to die because of an **** in white robes asingadi kuVaccinater mwana wake.

Hakuna zvakadaro. Ladies and gentlemen, let's capture these kids and drag them to be vaccinated coz we'll have our own kids infected and die takangotarisa.
If not then every person who refuses to vaccinate their kids should be sent to the farms nerusvava chake vafira ikoko kumunda or die kuSouth Africa.
