Lawyer speaks on Angel's football prophecy

HARARE - South African broadcaster SuperSport has filed an application against a $1,5 million lawsuit launched by Spirit Embassy Church leader Prophet Uebert Angel.

The broadcaster carried a story on their website at the end of December last year claiming that Angel had made a prophecy that Liverpool will win the 2013/2014 English Premiership title.

Currently, the 18-time English champions lead the log standings by two points with four games to go before the season ends and are hot favourites to lift the title for the first time in 24 years.

There has been confusion as to whether Angel will now change the prophecy to say Liverpool will win but his lawyer told the Daily News yesterday that the Spirit Embassy leader had never made such a prophecy in the first place.

Angel’s lawyer, Tinashe Tanyanyiwa of Manase and Manase Legal Practitioners said: “Whilst the matter is sub judice we can confirm that SuperSport has filed their plea.

“Our client’s position is and has always been that he never made the prophecy and whether Liverpool go on to win the title or not, he does not want credit for it. Attributing that false prophecy to him demeans him.”

Although SuperSport is a South African company, Angel in his lawsuit argues that the High Court in Zimbabwe has jurisdiction over the matter since they are represented in the country by their local agent, Multichoice Zimbabwe.

In the past Angel has been quoted as saying:  “I never PROPHESIED Liverpool winning any cup. Don’t know where SuperSport got it from. Even if by some chance Liverpool wins don’t give me credit.”

In an interview with Nehanda Radio on January 1, 2014,  Angel said “This is a typical case of news agents mixing truth and a lie so it sounds believable but as Christians let’s hold on to the truth only. We love you all and Jesus loves you more. We respect SuperSport as a great conveyor of news on sports but here they erred drastically by lying.”

Angel’s aides yesterday insisted that even if Liverpool go on to win the title, he would never want credit for the prophecy as he never made it.Lawyer speaks on

The lawsuit by Uebert Angel Mudzanire is a scare tactic. He wants to frighten those who dare question his dubious "forensic" prophecies. People will never be silenced, Mudzanire. Brace for more criticism, young man!

The man of God said it before on the 1st of January 2014 that he did not prophesy anything about Liverpool and even if they win the man of God has nothing to do with it. This is not about Liverpool winning or losing but the fact that the man of God did not say that is what matters.

these false prophets are confusing people, they prophesise on earthly things that have nothing to do with the heavenly Father. in short they are occults, being used by the devil. the biblical prophets did not showcase their powers but interpreted God's power. these gospreneurs (today's prophets) are using arcane powers to hoodwink their followers to part with their hard earned dollar through use of recondite and magical powers, these prophesies have nothing to do with God, they are the devil's messengers.

David - 17 April 2014

Guess hakuna a prophet who can be so open as what Prophet Angel is portraying in this case. As per your say, Liverpool is leading and he is saying NO to saying that. How many prophets can come out in the open as he has done. If it was me with the current log i would be getting all the credit for that news, but as Prophet, Major has come out in the open and said i said nothing like that. Guess lets celebrate our hero and appreciate the authenticity shown by Prophet Angel.

This man is straight forward. He came out in the open way back and my surprise people want him to agree on things that he never said. Liverpool is my favourite team but credit must go to angel for standing by his word and lets take it and move on.

Cde Teu - 17 April 2014

Big up to this man of God and i don't understand why the media wants to crucify him on this prophecy yet he said it before that he did not prophesy anything in that regard. Even if Liverpool went on to win the fact still remains the same that he did not prophesy about Liverpool.

Chokuda - 17 April 2014

Liverpool will never walk alone. Prophet Angel was very frank and open on this issue from the start so lets not put words in his mouth. He made it clear that he did not prophesy about Liverpool.

Pliz the media stop trying to boost your positions by making false statements about our prophets to sound believable. SS should be punished for that. This is a true man of God.

Being the man of God that you claim to be, why don't you give the other cheek to be slapped as the Bible teaches us? And to sue for a whooping $1.5 million-Heavens help us.

biblically there is 1 prophet per generation, how many do we have in this generation, food 4 thot, they prophesyd of things that built and edified God's kingdom, in what ways are some of these prophesies edifying the kingdom? and it is written in Acts that some will say ndiri waPaul or waJohn but that must not be coz tese tiri vaJesu, iyi yekuzoti mwana wamuporofita ndeipi iyi, zvakanyorwa kunzi vachauya maporofita ennhema vachamutsa vakafa, vachati gomo ibva apa uende apa nezita rangu asi pakupedzisira ndichavati handikuzivei, you will see them by their works. and lastly why is it that all of Zimbabwean "prophets" first went to west africa, Ghana in particular to get "god" to give them power? some 1 help me here

Take the truth from the horse's mouth and you still want to write what you want people to believe. Shame on you all those who oppose the work of Christ.

Cde Nemi Tinopedzerana - 17 April 2014

Liverpool for life and we will never walk alone we are with you Prophet and it is high time the world must know that your word is your weapon. You never said anything and that is good enough. As a supporter i would want it to win and as a Christian my prosperity lies in believing God's prophets.

Abednigo - 17 April 2014

The papers are putting their own opinions instead of the truth from the prophet. There is no confusion whatsoever all people need to do is listen to the youtube clip that was posted on the 2nd of January 2014 whilst Liverpool had so many games to play. Dont put words in his mouth. Remember this guys prophecies have never missed so far and i dont think he will ever miss coz he stands by his word that is why he is saying do not give me credit for things i never said

Leonorah - 17 April 2014

Confusion is for those who do not understand the prophetic. The issue is clear and Major never said it and that settles it as for SuperSport well, that is a story they will live to tell.

James - 17 April 2014

If you understand the prophetic then you would not be confused. At times you confuse yourself by taking things that were never said and want to make people believe that they were said. Bhora pasi kana chiporofita chotaurwa naMajor. Vanonhonga tsono zvavo
