Photo: Zimbabwean Pastor Kills His Two Daughters With Poison Before Killing Himself


A South African based Pastor identified as Precocious Mpofu, from Nkulumane suburb, Zimbabwe reportedly killed his two daughters with poison before killing himself.

According to report, the 36 years old pastor and his daughters Shalom (11) and Panashe (7) were laid to rest at Luveve cemetery in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe on Saturday, after their bodies arrived in the country.

It was learnt that the deceased, who was a pastor at Prophet Blessing Chiza’s Eagle Life Assembly allegedly forced his two daughters to drink a drainage cleaning chemical before also taking it in Yeoville suburb, Johannesburg, citing marital problems with his wife, Ms Chido Chipangura, who had recently separated from him but was still living in South Africa.

According to Mpofu’s neighbour from South Africa who traveled to Zimbabwe for the burial, while  describing the pastor he said his a gentleman who was devoted to his wife and may have failed to come to terms with rejection 'the pastor was too devoted to his wife, he loved his children and wife so much but it was embarrassing in church when rumors went around that she was having extra marital affairs'.

:They had since separated and we heard she had moved on but he just could not accept it," the neighbour who declined to be named said.

While Chipangura's family members who noted that they were yet to come to terms with the death of the children said;

“As a family we are very sad. We have lost two children and we are still in mourning. We thank the family, friends and neighbors for their support at this time.”

It was reported that the late Pastor Mpofu who allegedly left a suicide note in which he stated that he was facing a lot of problems most of them in his marriage said there were some people who were stalking him and mentioned four people together with their contact details, though he did not give the reasons why the individuals were stalking him.

It was learnt that the deceased also sent a lot of messages to his family in the suicide note though he did not mention his intentions to kill his children and commit suicide, but however, hinted it when he directed how his property should be shared.

According to the deceased's family members at their family home in Nkulumane suburb last Friday, from the information they received, the tragedy could have happened on Monday, October 15, between 2PM and 4PM after Pastor Mpofu had just returned from collecting his children from school.

“I am reliably informed residents at his apartment saw him carrying each of the daughters on his shoulders into their flat at around 2PM. At 2:40PM he sent his sister here in Bulawayo a WhatsApp message saying one of his daughters, Shalom, had died. Exactly 10 minutes later, he sent another message saying his second daughter had also passed on. This puzzled his sister who was trying to call him to understand what exactly he was trying to say.” The deceased’s father, Mr Sipho Mpofu, said.

He added that when the sister tried to text him back and messages were no longer delivering, she called Ms Chipangura telling her to go and check on her husband as he was texting strange messages.

“Ms Chipangura dashed to the flat only to find three bodies. The kids’ bodies were neatly laid in bed between blankets while Precocious’ body was on the floor,” he said.
