BULAWAYO WOMAN IN MIRACULOUS RECOVERY, COMES BACK FROM THE DEAD

With friends and relatives already making funeral arrangements after her doctor had told them that 58-year-old Monica Ncube’s condition was beyond science and medicine, she regained consciousness when those of little hope were already mourning.

B-Metro visited the recuperating Ncube at her family house in Manningdale, where she poured her heart out.

Ncube suffered what appeared to be a stress related stroke in 2009 after a period of grieving over an accident that happened in 2009 during the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair, a personal calamity that was to claim her aunt’s daughter’s life and her niece’s legs.

“I suffered a stroke after my aunt’s daughter died in an accident while my niece suffered broken legs. It was a terrible accident that broke the hearts of many in the city. Our neighbours also lost their children during the same accident,” she recounted, fighting back tears.

“It was something that burdened my mind for a long time and one day when I was bathing I just collapsed. One of my relatives found me paralysed and mute in the water,” she said.

The months that followed are still a blur for Ncube, who recounts a few dreams in which she saw herself dressed in all white, a vision that seems to be common among people who had near-death experiences.

Her brother Charles Ncube (57), says they had given up on her, as medical professionals felt like there was no way they could revive his sister. Visitors had also been told to keep away as it was futile to come and see her.

“The doctor just stopped short of pronouncing her dead. The impression that he gave us was that they had done all they could and we were to take her home and wait for her demise,” said Ncube.

They enlisted the services of prophets and pastors, their prayer did not succeed where science failed as there was no improvement. Instead her condition deteriorated.

However, as she appeared ready to cross over to the afterlife, Ncube reportedly started mumbling, something that startled the family as she had not shown any signs of life previously.Since that flirtation with death, recovery has been slow and painful. She showed B-Metro the various tools she used for mobility. A wheelchair, crutches and a walker are some of the tools that served as useful substitutes for her feet.

“I still felt excruciating pain in my body and heaviness on my shoulders and legs. My arms got too weak, as a result I couldn’t handle or touch anything. I was just an object that was just waiting for death,” said Ncube.

“My relatives sought the services of prophets and pastors who then prayed for me and the situation never changed as my arms and legs remained numb and weak. The heaviness on my shoulders never eased but it got worse,” she said.

However, in the last few months, Ncube has finally begun to show signs of recovery. The tools she used for mobility have been discarded, and although she still has a swollen foot, she can now even do errands around the home.

“I’m now able to talk and I can now walk on my own without the aid of crutches. And I can now lift things which are not heavy and I’m also gaining eyesight,” said Ncube.

Her niece, Thandiwe Ncube (31) said: “The situation has been bad since 2009 as she could hardly do anything.

Ncube can now bath on her own and wash clothes. She could not sleep but now she can sleep well.”

A deeply religious woman, Ncube credits Prophet Emmanuel Gwandida who is popularly known as Madzibaba Mutumwa of Johane Masowe weChishanu for her miraculous recovery.

According to Mutumwa, one of her family members had approached him when many had resigned themselves to the fact that she was all but dead.

“As we were at a loss for words our niece Sichelesile Moyo phoned Madzibaba Mutumwa and the man of God prayed proclaiming that she would not die and indeed she resurrected,” said her brother.

He added: “As a family we would like to convey our sincere gratitude to Madzibaba Mutumwa for praying for my sister’s resurrection and indeed we saw the grace and power of God at work.”
