A Harare woman has claimed that she has had a miracle baby. It took only three days from having sex to giving birth, she has claimed live on Radio Zimbabwe.
The woman, Mrs Moffat from Chitungwiza was interviewed live on Radio Zimbabwe by radio talk show host Tilda Moyo.
Mr and Mrs Moffat confirmed the miracle during the radio programme as the woman narrated what really took place. Sharing her testimony, Mrs Moffat said she had normal menstrual periods which ended on 15th November 2012. She revealed that on 16 November the couple got intimate, just like would do on any other day.
On the 18th of November 2012 when the couple went to UFI Church, founded by flamboyant preacher, Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa, who, during the service, prayed for female congregants who had pregnancies with complications.
The woman said Prophet Makandiwa declared that there would be a miracle pregnancy and deliverance within a space of hours, days and weeks and that is when Mrs Moffat began experiencing some signs of labour pains on her back and on the belly.
"When I started having these pains I was rushed to doctors in town who prescribed me some medication to buy at a local pharmacy. On our way to Chitungwiza, where we stay, my husband and I jumped into a kombi. That is when my condition further deteriorated and my belly miraculously ballooned. It instantly grew to the size of a pregnant woman and both of us got surprised," she said.
The mother of the miracle baby said they urged the kombi driver to increase speed and rush them to Chitungwiza Hospital.
"After narrating my signs and symptoms to a nurse at the hospital, she instructed me to go straight to the labour room. This shocked both my husband and I. I later gave birth to a miracle bouncing baby boy whom we named Emmanuel," she revealed.
Tilda asked if the couple had planned to have another baby and the woman had this to say:"We had not planned to have another baby because we already had 2 children. However I think the prophet's faith is the one that brought this miracle," she said.
"Where on earth have you heard that? Even Jesus himself, son of God who performed so many miracles and was born of a virgin, had to endure nine full months in His mother's womb. What kind of a miracle is that where a woman gets pregnant and gives birth within 3 days? There is no God who responsible for such a miracle," said Tapiwa Mujuru, a Methodist Church's former Bulawayo youth leader.
