A resident Blessed Ncube who first saw the old man in front of her yard captured pictures and posted them on residents’ WhatsApp group. The image rapidly went viral and residents gathered to watch the spectacle.
Her message on the group read: “There is a naked man in front of our gate, please come and assist.”
Ncube said the man told them he was hungry and her neighbours joined hands and gave him food.
“We fed him and he started to talk and told us he was from Chimanimani,” she said.
Prophet Moyo said: “I gave him clothes to wear after that I gave him food.”The prophet said he prayed for him after that he opened up.
“He was speaking in ChiNdau and said he fell from a winnowing basket and got injured. He was bruised all over the body. He said a spiritual force pulled him down,” said Moyo.
