REMEMBER, if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Blinded by the allure of prosperity, an elderly man from Hwange in Matabeleland North province's quest to get rich quickly through supernatural means backfired horribly when his children and relatives died allegedly as a result of the muthi he acquired to become rich.

Jekete Ncube from Kapame Village, reportedly bought the muthi comprising python skin held within a gourd under the pretext that it possessed magical powers that could bring him instant wealth.

To his horror, the muthi had the opposite effect, causing the deaths of his children and relatives.

Instead of the muthi making him rich Ncube is still poor.

"For Ncube days turned into weeks, and weeks into months, but his financial situation remained unchanged. Despite his unwavering faith in the sangoma's promises, his hopes for a better life began to dwindle," said a source who requested anonymity.

According to the source, a frustrated Ncube later confronted the sangoma, demanding an explanation for the lack of results.

"The sangoma, unfazed by his anger, reportedly told him that the python skin's power required patience and unwavering belief," said the source.

Grappling with a series of mysterious deaths that had been rocking the family, other family members invited Archbishop Emmanuel Mutumwa, the leader and founder of the Johane Masowe eChishanu Apostolic Church in Bulawayo for a cleansing ceremony.

During the cleansing ceremony Ncube made a chilling confession saying some years ago and in a desperate bid to get rich and improve his life he consulted a sangoma who gave him a python skin held within a gourd saying he was going to amass wealth.

In addition to the python skin, a thorough search in his bedroom revealed a bag containing a considerable amount of coins and a drum brimming with maize grains.

His confession reportedly torched a storm within his family with some family members baying for his blood.

Ncube told Archbishop Mutumwa that his get-rich plan didn't work out when the muthi started tormenting him, killing his children and other family members.

"I don't want this muthi anymore. I want to be rescued from it," he reportedly pleaded during a cleansing session while warning other family members against using juju to get rich quickly.

He reportedly said that he never thought that the muthi would harm his children and that he was now paying a heavy price for his actions.

In an interview Archbishop Mutumwa confirmed the incident saying it served as a cautionary tale, highlighting the dangers of succumbing to get-rich-quick schemes.

"Whatever your beliefs, it is important to remember that there is no such thing as a get-rich-quick scheme. If you want to be successful, you need to pray, work hard and be patient. There are no shortcuts to success.

"If you are considering using juju, please think carefully about the risks. It is not worth putting your life or the lives of your loved ones at risk," warned Archbishop Mutumwa.

He said this usually happened if the client does not follow all the instructions.
