Satanism, juju rampant in football - Magaya

HARARE - Prophet Walter Magaya says he has ventured into football with the aim of delivering the sport from rampant “Satanism and Juju”.

The Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries leader was speaking during the launch of the Yadah TV World Navi Northern Region Super 8 tournament yesterday, which he is bankrolling to the tune of $30 000.

Yadah TV is a division of Magaya’s PHD.

The tournament, which kicks off this weekend, will be contested by the second tier league’s top eight teams as at mid-season this year.

Clad in floral blue shirt, formal black trousers and white slops, Magaya’s aura was unmistakable as he entered the auditorium for the press conference.

“As a ministry we are trying to bridge the gap…I strongly believe that football is being dominated by Satanism, Juju,” Magaya said.

“I was watching the World Cup, the issue of (Luis) Suarez (biting Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini). I was shocked with the tattoos on the back of players. I said ‘if Satan is in football, God can also play football’.”

Earlier this year, Magaya took over sponsorship of division one outfit Gunners.

“My wish is to support division one up until a time when players are coming from the Premiership to play in this league,” he said.
