Madzibaba Ishmael’s Cult Of Doom…People Living In Slavery At His Farm As Police And Authorities Turn A Blind Eye!

Mashonaland West | The community established by self-proclaimed prophet Madzibaba Ishmael Chokurongera at his plot in Nyabira has attracted attention due to reports of questionable activities occurring there.

Residents of the community, referred to as “Canaan,” adhere to strict rules and regulations set by Madzibaba Ishmael, whom they address as Mambo. Among these rules, members are prohibited from owning money or worldly possessions.

There are reports of underage girls being married off, with marriages occurring as early as ages 14 to 15. Children born within the community are denied birth certificates and education, and attempts to leave the community are met with resistance.

According to sources, deceased members are buried on the same day without informing their relatives or seeking any consultation. It is reported that Madzibaba Ishmael has over 100 families working under him at the compound, with all proceeds going to him.

Memory Mukanairi, whose daughter died under mysterious circumstances at the plot, expressed frustration over the lack of information surrounding her daughter’s death and burial. She described a culture of fear within the community, where residents are hesitant to speak out or seek help from authorities.

Family members of the deceased girl also expressed their concerns, citing irregularities in the burial process and the shallow nature of the graves. They highlighted the lack of transparency and accountability within the community, with decisions being made without consultation or proper procedures.

Sources revealed that Madzibaba Ishmael established the cult after his release from prison, convincing followers to join him at his farm in Nyabira under the guise of seeking refuge from the impending end of the world. Members are isolated from the outside world, denied access to education, and coerced into following strict rules dictated by Madzibaba Ishmael.

The disturbing revelations shed light on the exploitation and manipulation occurring within the community, raising questions about the welfare and rights of its members.
