A total of 36 years in prison has turned a Harare man from a habitual criminal to a street preacher.

From a distance, one would think Christian Kabasa is a pastor or an evangelist, but as you get closer to him, one discovers that he is only a confessing ex-convict, a former Chikurubi maximum prison inmate who was behind bars for 36 years with varying crimes that include carjacking, armed robbery and stock theft.

The decades Kabasa spent in prison were more than enough for him to repent, like the Biblical story of the prodigal son.

Now Kabasa spends most of his time alerting the would be criminals through his preaching.

Kabasa has since taken his preaching in streets a step further by producing DVDs.
