We will look up to Angel - Mugabe

HARARE - President Robert Mugabe yesterday said he will seek divine intervention in prophets like Uebert Angel if government policies fail to satisfy the people.

Speaking at his birthday celebrations at Rudhaka Stadium, Mugabe said where government fails, there was need to turn to the bible and particularly mentioned Angel who had given a short speech targeted at the youth just before the 90-year-old leader delivered his keynote address.

“We must do all we can as government and a people to work and where we fail, we ask for divine assistance and that’s where we need Uebert Angel who was here,” said Mugabe.

During his short speech, Angel urged the youths to take charge of their destiny by ruling Zimbabwe, in what could be concluded as an indirect message to the 90 year old President that he must give power to the youths.

“There is something there that we need to understand. One common denominator in humanity is that we are all human and that humanity is the problem, because as humans, we have imperfections.

“So it takes no genius to spot the imperfections of the other but it takes great resolve to see and identify what somebody has done and the best in another person. I therefore encourage the youth to see the best in our president, the best in our country. Take advantage of what is in our country and let’s rule Zimbabwe as youths.”

Angel’s remarks could be seen as controversial especially when he urged the youth to take only the best from Mugabe, unlike Zanu PF bootlickers who claim that the veteran Zimbabwe leader is perfect and flawless.

The popular prophet also went biblical in his message to the youth.

“In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.  I want to encourage the youth that one thing God did and will never do again is to create the earth. God has already finished creating land and is no longer creating land.

“Since there is no more land being created, then there is an opportunity here that the government under this Current President has provided to the people. As youths, let’s be vigilant.

“Let’s take that advantage to take what belongs to us. All we have is Zimbabwe. We are Zimbabweans and Zimbabwean problems can only be solved by Zimbabweans. The African problem can only be better solved by an African.”

Angel immediately moved to explain that by speaking at a Mugabe birthday bash, critics would rush to conclude that he had been taken over by Zanu PF.

He said:  “I understand from right now critics will be there. I think, after my speech something will be written ‘Angel swallowed by Zanu PF,’ as if they know where I was before I was swallowed. I grew up under a father who was and still is a strict Zanu PF member and along the way he gave birth to a sister who campaigned for the MDC, my father has not fired her from the family yet.”

He chuckled again exposing that tolerance and accepting different political views as his father did in not disowning his MDC daughter should be the only way forward.

Observers said in a way, Angel played and put himself in the middle in what has been called his usual complexity when tackling questions.

Don't look up to Uebert Angel (Mudzanire) but look up to God, comrade!

Don't turn to Angel, Robert. Turn to God. This is what we sing church session that "Vamwe vayamuri vakatadza". Some helpers, including Angel, have failed. They also need God's intervention and help. Seek God Robert, for man have failed.

karl Marx - 24 February 2014

I'll rather turn to God than Angel. Mugabe is a non believer and the socalled Man of God should not waste time calling Mugabe the chosen one. I'm not judging but I was there when people were being persecuted for being an opposition supporter, so I don't see God dining with murderous.

We thank God for the Prophet in Zimbabwe

Angel is a mere mortal...how does he solve Zimbabwe problems? Why is he not dealing with the current liquidity crisis we have and the ever increasing energy and water crises? Rent a crowd was the in thing bit ZANU-PF can also now rent a prophet!!!

Isidore Mutungagore - 24 February 2014

i think the President does not mean he will worship Prophet Angel but he wil seek divine counsel from the Prophets of God because the hear from him. just like in the days of Moses, Elijah and Samuel the Kings and rulers sought counsel from the Prophets that is what he was saying. i say way to go Mr President. vaya vanosvotwa neVaporofita bva muchaita mudumbu gore rino coz Mukuru has no issues with them

TInote - 24 February 2014

if you all knew what Prophet are you would have got the answer by now. Prophets hear from God and deliberate to man, there are there to speak the deep oracles of God.Prophets are a voice of God, read scriptures people dont let ur hatred blindfold you.

Respect the prophet and there is no one who can change what God has put in terms of the leadership of any country. There is nothing wrong in what Prophet Angel said. In fact homosexuality must not be exonerated just because of human rights. You are letting the country go to the dogs because of human rights and yet the world is looking for the righteous to show the world direction.

Nyika Taitora - 24 February 2014

am proud of you man of God, we lead and they follow, they havent seen anything yet

In 1980 almost every Zimbabwean rallied behind this party. Yes there is a fact that somewhere along the road due to differences some left and formed other parties. The fact remains that as Zimbabweans the natural resources belong to us and we have a right to that. I support Prophet Angels view that the youth must have the inheritance of our country and benefit from it.

please do not try to teach the bible when your knowledge is shallow.GOD will use a person to answer ones prayer.acts 9;11-16.even if one turns to GOD,GOD will send a person.feldman bandura and karlmarx are only good on commenting without proper research.when you say angel has failed ,how did you come to that conclusion?if ever he failed you ,GOD has not failed him unless GOD communicated to you .

ole - 24 February 2014

The president is quite right. Guys before you criticize , please read your bible 2 Chronicles 20 vs 20..Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper....There are men of God in Zimbabwe .....who represent God whether you like it or not

Prophet Angel has met and preached before a lot of influential people in the world and Mugabe is no exception. The fact that this man was asked to preach at Mugabe's birthday say lot of how the president acknowledges him as a prophet of God.

Prophets guide the nation but it takes the leaders of the country to accept the what the man of God is saying or they risk going astray. Thank you Prophet Angel for such wise words and we stand with you man of God. May God continue to use you mightly.

Well done President Mugabe. The bible in Mathew 10 verse 41 states "He that receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward. Thank you for acknowledging a prophet in your country.

Last week an article in a newspaper had a story which read that some Ghananin prophets were on their way to meet his excellency regarding how satanic these prophets were.To me it seems as true. Why a) Makandiwa splashes/shines at Bona`s party then... b) Angel says that he is a Zanu Pf. Why,Why,why, all this fuss.Please do not let our president loose focus we know that u are also like those scandalous cash barons and your judgement days will come.look at Kunonga and others,l like Zanu Pf of today because Chiwororo,haina basa kuti waipa chii kana chekufumuka chasvika pako hachivharike asi wozodya zvako taziva zvauri,hokoyo koronyera enda kuvarimi kwete muguta,UNOKUWARA.

The two of them have been ZANU-PF stooges for a long time. By their fruits you shall know them. SHAME SHAME SHAME. So called prophets supporting evil of the highest order in this country. Dining with LUCIFER and calling yourselves men of God. Evil begets evil. Am sure God sitting at his high throne must have had a loudest laugh last week with all this circus. Vakomana muchamhanya neuprofita hwenyu hwenhema. Ndakunyarirai. Stooping so low so that you can continue looting from hypnotized congregates at your churches and you want to ensure Mugabe supports you and you do not have to answer for your sins. Mugabe is not God. You might not answer on this earth but be fore God you will. Using the name of the Lord in vain to amass wealth from poor sufffering Zimbabweans who are now so desperate to earn a living that they believe any SHIT you tell them. Am sure sitting in the comfort of your homes and luxuries with your families you smile all the way to the bank. Zvakaoma. Sure you need to thank Mugabe for giving you an opportunity to hood wink the long suffering Zimbabweans to part with their poor dollars to fleece your pockets. Supporting a party that has dehumanised a nation to a level of being paupers and will do anything to cling to power its a real shame. Murder, rape torture and you condone that. Maiweeee. Takuzivai. Tinotenda Mwari aburitsa zvese pachena.

Even God knows that Mugabe is the President,where is your problem when God Himself finds no fault in this revolutionalist ? Tell me of a King who has never punished anyone.Why do you accuse the President of being a murderer when even the bible declares how Abraham and even the likes of David used to slaughter their enemies with the hand of God supporting them?

In the bible every King would have spiritual men to himself.He would live them in his palace and they would eat on his table.Somehow,they had revelation which most morones of nowadays are lacking no wonder most of them are complaining.The likes of Ahab,Nebbuchadnezzah,Saul etc to name but a few,all these Kings knew that they should have spiritual people in charge,nowonder they even employed wiches and wizards to cover up for the absence of the real men of GOD.Our President is no fool,he is even getting more wiser with age-he knows what he is doing by having the men of God closeby.Also we salute our Prophets for being examplary according to the Word of God which says submit to authority,they do just that.Dai tsvangirai ariye President hapana chainetsa they would simply do the same,and give him his dues,sei mukurwadziwa nekuti zvaitirwa vaMugabe?Wamukuvenga ndiPresident here kana kuti magara mukuvenga vaPorofita vaMwari ava?manje BP ichakwira nekuti God Himself chose President Mugabe,Prophet Makandiwa and Prophet Angel.
