In what seems like a revelation of one of the prophecies in the Bible regarding the end times, a Zimbabwean woman believes her daughter, also called ‘girl Jesus’ is the incarnate of out Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
On Good Friday, 25th March, some journalists visited the woman who identified as Mrs. Entrance Nyanyete in her home in Mudzimu Unoyera sect in Chatiza Village, Mashonaland Central’s Guruve District of Zimbabwe. Although ‘Girl Jesus’ was absent, her mother, Mrs. Nyanyete, also known as Mai Maria (Mother Mary) and her father, Baba Josefa (Father Joseph) were present. Mai Maria mentioned that she had forgotten that it was the Easter season, lamenting over the sudden remembrance of her daughter’s death 2000 years ago.
“I had forgotten that it is Easter. You have actually reminded me of my child’s death. This is actually one of the most painful times of my life as it reminds me of the time white people overseas killed my child.”
Baba Josefa also added: “You came here to ask about our Easter celebrations. See how painful it is to her? It is painful to celebrate because this is the day Jesus was killed.”
Mai Maria said after Jesus’ death 2,000 years ago, he was reincarnated as Emmanuel Dzanagare Mudyiwa in 1939.
Emmanuel Dzanagare Mudyiwa was the founder of the sect who believed himself to be a Jesus incarnate. He had told his followers that following his death in 1989, he will return as a girl three years later. Tepsy Nyanyete also known as ‘Girl Jesus’ was born in 1992 but 6 years later, the sect came to recognize her as the promised one. A follower even once said;
“She possesses his spirit and the way she speaks is extraordinary for a girl of her age.”
Mrs. Nyanyete said:
“For us, every Friday is Easter and we remember how they killed my child many years back. We celebrate it in our own way, with our own rituals, which include crying, singing and dancing
“We are, however, grateful that Jesus came back, and this time, she will not die. She is not going away anymore. She is set to live forever and rule the earth.”
She led the newsmen to ‘Jesus’ bedroom where a cot, diapers, baby clothes and blankets were neatly arranged and explained that her ‘Jesus’daughter had a great passion for dolls.
Jepsy Nyanyete is also referred to as Jekia Mambo, Tenzi or Ishe Jesu but popularly among Zimbabweans as Girl Jesus.
For many years, certain individuals have claimed to be the Messiah or an incarnate, but should it come as a surprise when there is a scripture regarding this:
Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many – Matthew 24: 4-5
