Couple splits over Gumbura's church

HARARE - A Harare couple has broken up following accusations that the wife was having an inappropriate relationship with a congregant from Robert Martin Gumbura’s Independent End Time Message church.

Godfrey Chipadza told magistrate Rekina Dzikiti that his girlfriend, Amina Mahlathini, is cheating on him with Independent End Time congregant.

This emerged after Mahlathini hauled Chipadza before the Harare Civil Court seeking a protection order against him.

Mahlathini told the court that Chipadza abuses her physically and verbally.

She said she no longer loves him and wanted him barred from visiting her.

“He has been assaulting me and rebuking me all the time,” Mahlathini said.

“I have a medical condition which does not allow me to be in a relationship with men. I told him that I have a wound inside my private part and the doctor said I must not be intimate with any man.”

Chipadza refuted his girlfriend’s allegations, saying she never told him that she no longer loves him.
He said he was amazed that Mahlathini was referring to him as her “ex-boyfriend.”

“The problem started with a church called Independent End time Message,” he said.

“She used to attend (Emmanuel) Makandiwa’s church and I heard that she is going to Independent End Time Message where she says she was receiving help.

“At one time we attended a funeral and she left the place with a man from the church and they never returned until we buried the deceased. She is having sexual affairs with Independent End Time Message congregants.”

Dzikiti ordered the two to resolve their problems peacefully. She ordered Chipadza to stop abusing his girlfriend physically or verbally.

Godfrey Chipadza and his girlfriend, Amina Mahlathini, are abusive and hurtful against Independent End Time Message. Its clear that Daily News reporter Ivan Zhakata lied. Dailynews should be sued for such lies.

Zvakaoma hazvo zverudo. Asisadi umwe ngaasiye zvakanana. Kana musikana ava neumwe murume suduruka. Hausati waroora. Achaita zvikomba mava mumba ukatichemera. If she has sexual relations with someone else, and you know it, why are you sticking around???

Kitsi if your judgment was not distorted you would have applauded Prophet Makandiwa. WHY? This woman after Having been there, hearing,seeing that UFIC upholds high moral standards, teachings are on holiness,one man one woman and Jesus Christ Centered whereby adultery is never tolerated decided to do what is best ie run away from God's Presence. This reveals that her evil actions were not accommodated. Kutotiza church iyi is because akaona kuti zvechipfambi hazvitenderwe. Kana uchifarira zvivi unototiza ku UFIC coz Prophet Makandiwa doesn't tolerate sin at all. Moto we Mweya Mutsvene urimo unopisa zvivi. Come & See my friend God is doing wonders most of us especially me were adulterers,thieves,drug addicts etc but God transformed me thru Prophet Makandiwa but unfortunately this lady ran away from her solution. I pray that God remembers her & transform her

makandiwa; makandiwa, makandiwa- only time will tell

Prophet Makandiwa preaches against sins like fornication and adultery and so whoever indulges in such leaves the church because he or she doesn't want to be rebuked. Let's face facts here.

what makandiwa is doing is building his own empire with a group of thugs. this man is very clever the saying, 'make hay while the sun still shines is true, he talks of raising the dead to shift people's attention so that they don't his other side. he gave people towels etc and people are living miserable lives. some got fired vaizviti vana vemuporofita. makandiwa idya mari yezvituta in the name of jesus. icha pfuka chete, wakangwara nekuti uri kuiseenzesa kugadzira mari.

The man of God Prophet Makandiwa dsn't nid any money from pple to building his own empire, coz his is already blessed by God, what amazes me is pple talking abt him eating pple's money,, what abt wt he is dng for community... vamwe takanga tiri mbavha, tichiita hupombwe hupenyu hwakachinja tikawanirwa mabusiness ekuita muhupenyu and there are many of us gettin help mari chaiyo frm the man of God,,, hatisi kuvapa tirikuto pihwa.

Any gathering for worship which is not founded on God but on money/riches is not a church but a mere club. Unfortunately most of us are duped because we are looking for physical healing and prosperity in its various forms; hence we run to all Mafikizolo churches whose main business is to gain popularity. Sorry Mahlathini, you might not have done anything wrong but its the church you chose.
