A police officer who allegedly robbing the late Apostle Charles Chiriseri's corpse of $200 has died.
Mkhokheli Mpofu (30), a constable, was hit by a car while manning a roadblock on Friday near the spot where he allegedly robbed the late founder of His Presence Ministries International pastor's corpse in September last year.
He was set to appear in court on March 28 for allegedly stealing $200, which was in a pocket of the late Apostle Chiriseri at the accident scene.
According to Mpofu's workmates, they claim that Apostle Chiriseri's spirit was exacting vengeance on him, the Chronicle reported.
Mpofu was initially injured at the 397km peg along the Harare-Bulawayo Highway in Mbembesi around 6pm.
However, he died on admission at the United Bulawayo Hospitals on the same day around 7.30pm.
"A former police officer Mr Peter Cahile was driving a Defender Land Rover towards Bulawayo and he failed to stop at the roadblock," a source is quoted saying.
"Mr Cahile told investigators he failed to see Cst Mpofu, who was in the road signalling for him to stop, as it was dark.
"He stopped a few metres from the accident scene and was immediately arrested."
