Prophet Passion Java Faces Arrest!

Police yesterday said they were investigating controversial self-proclaimed prophet Passion Java for contravening the Police Act after a picture of him wearing a Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) hat went viral.

Java, who brags of being close to President Emmerson Mnangagwa and is vice-president of the Zanu PF-aligned Affirmative Action Group (AAG), was pictured in a vehicle wearing a hat belonging to a female police officer.

The officer was standing outside the vehicle.

“The ZRP has taken note of a photo circulating on social media in which a female police officer is seen standing next to a man wearing a police hat,” the police statement read in part.

“Investigations are underway and a detailed statement will be issued after completion of investigations.”
