Following the confrontation by Chido, prophet left Chitungwiza Acquatic Complex prematurely on Wednesday. Chido alleges that prophet assaulted her and she lodged a complaint at Harare central police station around 10pm. “
Prophet lied to me that he wanted to remove his belongings from my vehicle when we got to one of the flats in the Avenues area. He is the one who asked for help after he failed to hire a car to use since he had no money and I agreed with my husband to give him the vehicle for a month. Within a month, he had already damaged the vehicle while driving and he opted to give us US$3 500 or repair the vehicle but we refused and insisted that we wanted to take our vehicle back.
