I don't support any political party — Makandiwa

HARARE - United Family International Church (UFIC) founder prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa has scoffed at statements aligning him to any political party in Zimbabwe after his recent prophecy on bloodshed due to mass action saying he has no price tag for any of the parties to buy him.

Speaking during yesterday’s sermon, Makandiwa said no amount of money can buy him. 

“If anyone thinks that these political parties can buy me he or she is lost, it’s only a sign that Zimbabweans do not  understand me  and may take more years to know me better.”

Scoffing at the news doing the rounds that he was used by Zanu PF to try and dissuade Zimbabweans from conducting mass action, Makandiwa said: “This is what you hear, you say something as a prophet but people misinterpret, I gave you a prophecy recently, but you hear the same people who cannot hear from God worse off.

“It (prophesy) became the talk of town.  If you were good listeners, you would understand I was prophesying from a prophetic point of view and whichever 

angle you may want to take it from, it was positive whether from the MDC or Zanu PF perspective.”

Makandiwa emphasised that he was not aligned to any political party and hence his prophecy was apolitical and beneficial to the nation.

Responding to some sentiments that his prophecy was nothing but a response to a call by the opposition party MDC to hold protests, Makandiwa said this prophecy was publicly given way before there was any announcement or need for mass protest, as both the MDC and Zanu PF were working together in the unity government.

“I initially gave this prophecy long back on the 17 June,  2010 about a soldier running amok with a gun,” said Makandiwa.

It's high time Zimbabweans understand that Prophet Makandiwa is a true man of God. His teachings, wisdom and most important, his relationship with God place him above all politicians.

Prophets should never involve themselves with politics lest people misunderstand them.At one time, prophet Makandiwa joined ZANU PF's campaign against sanctions & that was misconstrued by some laymen.His friend, prophet Hubert Angel publicly declared that he was ZANU PF which again was so unfortunate for a man of God to do. Birds of a feather flock together & that's what people probably saw in prophet Makandiwa's prophecy which received prominent coverage in state run media.Frankly,prophets should keep their political affiliation /preference a private thing.

This shows how primitive Zimbabwean society is. Politicians taking seriously what pastors are saying. How can we make progress when we send our children to school to learn science and then turn around and listen to what fake pastors have to say? We have had this Nigerian pastor, JB Joshua, who is supposed to predict the future and do all sorts of miracles but was unable to predict the collapse of his own building where many people were lost their lives. We are back to the Dark Ages.

Musona - 6 October 2014

Prophet Makandiwa is a true man of God. I challenge everyone who really wants to know what kind of a man he is to attend at a church service and listen to what he preaches. The prophecy in question never mentioned any political party or any demonstrations and will only need a God fearing person to be able to understand it. What he emphasized on was that we should value the peace in this nation and to keep our culture intact and not trade it for money. I am encouraging all who really want the truth to go the offices and get a clip of the prophecy.

Prophet Makandiwa's son - 6 October 2014

would science accurately predict the outcomes of a demo? Is that taught in schools? will all children who were sent to school be capable of scientifically predicting the results of this intended demonstration?Of this demo thing, even I personally now query which is foolish, to invest in science or prophesy? It will be a shame on the demo day to be caught in the open by button-stick wielding riot police with a themometer, trying to scientifically measure the degrees celcius of demo heat.

@gonan'ombe - iwe ukadaidzwa nemukuru wenyika unoramba here iwe. Also it is the duty of the church (body of Christ) to pray for our leaders. If you are not interested in hearing what prophets have to say, then don't read of follow what they do. You are welcome to go on the streets kana ma demo acho akaitwa. The prophecy carried a condition. iwe choose what you want.

@shame - what are you trying to say? Your comment is inane.

Musona - 6 October 2014

Is Makandiwa trying to tell the people of Zzimbabwe that God himself dosen't want Zimbabweans to be free? Then its better we call the spririts of Mbuya neHanda and Sekuru Kaguvi who guided us when these so called prophets were not even born. Our spirits medium knew what we were fighting for and if we shed blood fighting for independence, then we shall shed blood fighting for freedom. Mbuya Nehanda and Sekuru Kaguvi lead us all the way. Pasi nema Porofita emari nenhema. Free us Mbuya neHanda and Sekuru Kaguvi from this dictorship and Prophets of Doom and coins of silver. Your spirits shall protect us from the Evil and No blood shall ever be lost.

Ziziharinanyanga - 6 October 2014

So Makandiwa thinks he is a mystery,why does he think that for himself if i am going to be corrected didn't he say that Mugabe has a plan and by that was he not campaigning for him,if he is a prophet he can be one but not of the same spirit with Elijah,Jeremiah,Ezekiel and others,he fits nicely in the prophets of the grooves,and Baal prophets who spoke to please evil rulers at the expense of suffering people,rather than telling rulers not to harm suffering people who are demonstrating he actually instil fear in people ,tell the king prophet to let people use their given right to demonstrate ,he is buying expensive cars so he thinks everyone is enjoying a good living like him,if you are to believe someone only after visiting his church is that biblical,we know Paul was a man of God not because we saw him preaching or attended his services but from what he said you got convinced that he is servant of God who followed not after money unlike our days prophets

shrewd - 6 October 2014

Ko inga wani muporofita vanoparidza freedom wani? Freedom in marriages, work, education, finances and all. Saka imwe freedom yamurikuda ndeipi? The prophet is fixing things in a supernatural way. He will not go for direct confrontations because it will have implications even on us his sons and daughters. I really dont understand people. They say Makandiwa preaches prosperity yet it is the same prosperity that they are longing for from the government

@ziziharinanyanga - 6 October 2014

shame is just shame .Go read your bible shame.Historically and biblically ,we have learnt that besides that jesus died for our sins as it was written in the scriptures,he was also killed because people of that time were expecting a political messiah and not a spiritual messiah.This contradicted their understand and they got angry.Even though jesus was there , politics was also there,thats why we had kings in the bible.Politics is politics and religion is religion,chete kungoti in zim ,thats why we have legislators who make laws that they do not know how to interpret.

kwangu kure - 6 October 2014

whilst i understand that the likes of Musona regard God as a myth, i challenge them to participate in the demos. Makandiwa is just issuing a warning to those who care to listen, if you feel he is talking nonsense then ignore him.

neutral - 6 October 2014

The bottom -line is Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa wants PEACE to prevail in Zimbabwe. His prophecy warns all Zimbabweans, from which ever political party from being involved in demonstrations, strikes or whatever can result in bloodshed. what I have also discovered about Zimbabweans is THAT they comment on issues that they dont have experience or degrees or PHDs in. I thought that if somebody has a degree in Economics/Engineering, he/she IS THE RIGHT PERSON TO comment on economic/engineering matters. SPIRITUAL THINGS ARE FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE PHDs IN SPIRITUALITY.People who are not even born again ,carnal people and are not even Prophets, should not teach a Prophet on how to prophesy, what to prophesy, when to prophesy, because they are not in the office of the Prophet.

Carlington Honye - 6 October 2014

True Prophets like Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa only say what God tells them to prophesy. And when they are silent on Zimbabwe or any other nations or any other thing, it does not mean that they cant see the present and future, its only their nature. And Zimbabweans should not forget that a Prophet can see something happening in the near future and tells the nation, like the prophecy given two weeks ago, and people may expect it to happen according to the prophecy,YET THE SAME PROPHET COULD PRAY AGAINST THE SAME THING NOT TO HAPPEN, AND GUESS WHAT MOST ORDINARY PEOPLE WILL SAY HE IS NOT A TRUE PROPHET BECAUSE THE THING THAT HE SAID DID NOT HAPPEN!!! THATS WHY THE BIBLE SAYS ' THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT ARE NOT UNDERSTOOD BY CARNAL PEOPLE AND TO BE SPIRITUALLY-MINDED IS LIFE WHILE TO BE CARNALY-MINDED IS DEATH". KANA USIRI MUPOROFITA USADZIDZISA MUPOROFITA KAPOROFITIRO, USADZIDZISA MUPOROFITA ZVOKUPOROFITA UYE USADZIDZISA MUPOROFITA NGUVA YEKUPOROFITA!!! NATIONS SHOULD NOT FIGHT SPIRITUAL PEOPLE THAT GOD GIVES THEM.THE JEWS FOUGHT AGAINST JESUS AND HIS TEACHINGS MORE THAN 2000 YEARS AGO, AND ZIMBABWEANS ARE FIGHTING AGAINST A PROPHET WHOM GOD HAS GIVEN THEM!!! THE MAIN REASONS WHY PEOPLE DO NOT UNDERSTAND AND FIGHT PROPHET EMMANUEL MAKANDIWA IS THAT """" MOST PEOPLE ARE NOT SPIRITUALS""""", MORE THAN 90% OF PEOPLE WHO CRITICISE PROPHET EMMANUEL MAKANDIWA ARE NOT SERIOUS!!!!!

So gullible Zimbabweans are. So medievally in worshipping fake prophets. So sad. Make them reach you morons here thinking he is a man of God. Jesus never ever had any property so whose lead are these morons supporting in reality. Can't you read the HOLY book by yourself? God will provide miracles everyday to anyone who worships him. The fact that ur reading this message is miracle in itself.

People seem not to understand how God works. In the bible there was no way kings rule without the counsel of the prophets. If one says prophets should not involve themselves in politics it's a sign they don't understand prophetic. Prophet Makandiwa is not only true man of God but a great man of God who is very obedient to God's word. unlike these hypocrites who try to commend negative about the prophetic. Most of Zimbabweans are happy now that we have a national if not an international prophet in our amidst. Long live true prophet of God Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa.

Emman - 6 October 2014

Who is a prophet and what is a prophet?there are basically two categories -the true and false prophets.Now whats validates that one is true or false?Beware compatriots you are being conned by ruthless fortune-hunters.The Phillip Chiyangwa league that has insatiable appetites for media....i think they even bribe camera men to get punctual attention.Only fools give them ears and time

carson Macate - 6 October 2014

If he is a great man of God then that is heresy, I thought he is a man of a great God. You are exalting him too much and you will get a prophet's reward.

Maita Manyuka - 6 October 2014

i think Carson is 100% correct. there are true and false prophets. what i challenge him to do is to be at the forefront of the demos. most probably he wont be there.

He is a Fake prophet, there is no single prophet in the bible who started his own church or who had a church

Amen - 6 October 2014

As a devout Christian i understand that one who rewards us for all good we do is the Lord himself.Now something like Prophets reward is conning in my view,there is no supernatural recognition about it.I dont need to be there to see as a doubting Thomas.Iam simply saying its full of falsehoods and magic like what is happening with their god-fathers in Nigeria and Ghana.Miracle money what a ridicule......

Tafadzwa - 6 October 2014

Really makandiwa is fake. Where is Angel he ran away to England cause he can sense the game is up and there is less money to milk. where there is poverty the society gets desperate and hence the false prophets thrive look out though history. Where in the bible did you see where preachers were getting so much money. Tell me where there was a prophecy where somone could predict if it happened or not. Prophecy is a time in future that no man can rewrite. Bot that nonscence that TB says i will curse this and that and pray this vision does not happen my foot. All these guys are rich and now TB is saying a plane with special dust when he built a 2 story building to a 6th story. Makandiwa nd their black magic will catch up with them now its caught pastor chris very soon its coming hence why makandiwa and angel are not ZAnu pf . makandia donated money to bona angel was at rallies. how can one associate with these kinds of people and lie. Mark my words their day is coming soon very soon let the people of zimbabwe be free and see. we will catch this olive oil liars and oranges for a dollar and brick layers cheaters.

Why do people always let themselves get lied to? It is very clear ZANU used Makandiwa to instill fear in people's minds and be discouraged from taking part in the demos. When in the past people were beaten up by the police for exercising their right to demonstration, we did not hear anything from 300 thousand benz driving prophet called Makandiwa. This is a cover up so that when their violent loving Police beat up peace marchers, they will tell us it had already been predicted. We witnessed how violent the Police are when they invaded Maposori at their own shrine in Mabvuku. What's to stop them now?Ebola is killing hundreds of people in West Africa, did Makandiwa, Magaya and Angel's 'God fathers' in Nigeria and Ghana predict that coming? And what of the building that collapsed due to structural faults and killed hundreds right on TB Joshua's grounds? Let's wake up people, God is for us all and He wants to us to be free, free from the lying politicians and prophets.

When is gold going start raining in zim ? one of the commandements in the bible is thou shall not lie . Lies lies and lies will not bring peace in any country . It is lies that has put us where we are today, We have some people who have gone back 5000 yrs when people where depending on prophets . Why do hear of these crooks pretending to be prophets in very poor countries ? Some people even think Magandiwa is god . Satan has godly powers which are evil and fools can be easily deceived by these powers.

Diibulaanyika - 6 October 2014

@ all, when someone preaches about prosperity and you criticize then it means you want people to remain in poverty, if someone preaches about health and you criticize him then you want people to remain in sickness. The question is who then is the devil's agent, him who preaches against sickness and poverty or him who criticizes such preaching. If a man hears from God and speaks in faith what he hears and sees, if you think that the man is lying why don't you present yourself as a better prophet and tell us just one thing that you prophesied and it came to pass then you qualify to criticize a prophet but if you have never prophesied about anything on what grounds should we trust your judgement. People of Zimbabwe do not be fooled by people who think that its only devil who can exhibit power when the bible clearly says that all things were created by God. If the devil lies to you that he is powerful and exhibits some power a true Christian knows that God will definitely have more power than that which the devil has because all power belongs to our God. We seek to see all those who call say Prophet Makandiwa is not a true man of God and he is used by the devil to go their God who is all powerful and ask him to cause the downful of the prophet. If you hate prophecy it means that you are hiding something and you fear to be exposed, or better still why don't you challenge Prophet Makandiwa to tell you about your own and find out whether he is fake or not. We will not lie down when you sons of Belial try to make the whole of Zimbabwe blind as you are. The word of God say by a prophet Israel was delievered and by a prophet Israel was preserved the man is doing his job of preserving a nation and has only God to please

Prophet Makandiwa's son - 6 October 2014

Can some one out there tell me what has Magandiwa changed in this country? Industries , hospitals , schools economy in general is never revived by prophets in facts they are no prophets anymore , The bible warns us of fake prophets who are going to mislead us so some of us stick by the bible warnings and always on the look of fraudsters pretending to be prophets .

Diibulaanyika - 6 October 2014

Can the man of the cloth clarifies his statement yekuti ini Makandiwa ndino uraya, David killed a fox and a lion but didn't kill the owner. The bible says the devil is roaming like a lion and when the power of the enemy comes in like a flood the spirit of god will raise up a standard. Our weapons are not canal but mighty through god to the pulling down of strongholds. Mr Makandiwa the example you gave about David did not match your interpretation. Hence, killing muroyi instead of the devil himself will tantamount to a nice peace of heresy for God is doesn't delight in the death of sinner. Love your enemies and wish them a prolonged life so they might witness your blessings. The devil came to kill and destroy but he came so that we might have life in abundance. For death came by sin and sin came by men. Our God is a God who waters even the field of a witch but to my surprise Makandiwa sounds to be in spiritual warfare with people being used by the devil not the devil himself. Please Makandiwa stop preaching heresy and focus on the truth. If God wanted the devil; dead he will be dead but since the spirit of death is not found in God the devil exists.
