Another Mugabe doom prophecy

HARARE - Controversial but hugely popular Malawian prophet, Austin Liabunya, has once again “prophesied” the supposed pending demise of President Robert Mugabe.

According to the online Malawi publication, the Maravi Post, Liabunya once again predicted at a New Year’s day service that Mugabe would pass away this year.

This is not the first time that the maverick prophet has predicted the end of Mugabe in his controversial prophecies that have left a bad taste in the mouths of both friends and foes of the Zimbabwean strongman.

Mugabe, who is currently on his annual leave in the Far East, has on many occasions in the past 10 years been falsely, and sometimes maliciously reported to have passed away.

The persistent rumours around the health and life of the relatively fit, and often funny nonagenarian, once led him to say in jest that according to his enemies he had died  and resurrected several times more than Jesus Christ.

The Maravi Post reported Liabunya saying during his New Year’s Day service in Lilongwe that Mugabe’s biological clock would stop ticking this year.

“About Zimbabwe, the man of God said Robert Mugabe’s biological clock will not tick beyond this year (2015). During the night of cross-over service, the man of God said Zimbabwe will then be restored and that it will be in the top five of the richest countries in Africa.

“About Grace Mugabe who joined politics, he said she will never win in Zimbabwe’s politics (presumably the leadership of the country), saying she is being forced to join politics to protect their ill-gotten wealth.

“On this, the man of God said it will be good for Grace Mugabe to contest so that she should give the wealth back to the citizens of Zimbabwe during the campaign period,” the Maravi Post reported.

Liabunya is a controversial figure who has attracted a huge following in Malawi over the past few years, after allegedly predicting political events in the country accurately.

His followers claim that he correctly predicted that former Malawian President Joyce Banda would be defeated in the country’s 2014 elections.

Absolutely agree with you brother Bugwa.We are people with morals and we can not be tamed into the evil route by circumstances.If his time comes he will be taken by he whom brought him to earth and as his fellow compatriots we shall always wish him well irrespective of the wrong doings he is doing either consciously or not deliberate.He shall always be the son of the land.Hatifanirwe kutarisa panotadza chete munhu asi paanogona zvakare.

These false Prophets enhance their popularity by educated guesses. These are conmen of the highest order. Unfortunately in Africa the superstition is such that when their predictions come to pass they increase their income tenfold. As much as I dislike Mugabe this is so UnAfrican.

I think the nation needs Mugabe more than ever before. His passing will not usher in peace and prosperity as these prophets of doom predict. Utter chaos will follow. But knowing Mugabe he will defy these prophesies. What happened to the doctors' prediction that Mugabe won't see the year 2013 through due to cancer??

Mfokamdala - 4 January 2015

The nation needs Mugabe to retire. He has done nothing to improve the lively hood of the majority. Whilst I don't condone these prophesies the only ones that need Mugabe more than ever are those that have benefited from the corrupt rule and the patronage.

Some comments really do not belong to ordinary Zimbos but disenchanted colonialists. Colonialists you do not learn lessons. Instead of bringing your representatives before the Government of Zimbabwe and present you issue orderly on the land issue, you think one day wonders will happen Mugabe will be late and you can repossess your original farms. Day dreaming! Go to Mugabe now while he is alife perhaps he may listen to you. If Mugabe dies you will not have any chance with the new generation. Stop the unfaithful approaches you are waisting precious time.

Pliz don't pay with us you want to be arested even Jesus the son of man failed to tell the date of his death

moses antonio - 4 January 2015

@moses antonio do you think we are your babies who you can threaten with arrest like that . Fusteki !!!!! blood bastard go and arrest your father shit .

Mavuunakulya - 4 January 2015

Every time some one condemns the Government some idiot will say it's colonialists. Does it not occur to some people that there are black people out there suffering because of this Government? The comments here are all in agreement that this prophetsising and wishing for anyone's death is culturally unacceptable but that does not mean we all want Mugabe to rule for ever. That threatening people with arrest on such forums is the height of stupidity. Here we have freedom of speech and opinion.

Nyangarira - 4 January 2015

Am I missing something here or am I just exposing my poor comprehensio skills? I thought @moses, meant that the Prophet should not "play with us" but ti seems some people are taking it personal. Anyways, I hope politics does not strip us of our humanity to the point of wishing others death, although I can see how some people wish to have a different leadership. (Moses lived up to 160, kkk)

Gatsi Rusere - 4 January 2015

I think he meant something else. I don't think he is that thick to think he can arrest a person in Malawi.

Nyangarira - 4 January 2015

I see.

matinji a grace - 5 January 2015

this guy did not gv any exact date but has a vision that shows that death is imminent. This is a prophecy just like any other prophecies were like from the beginning.

Who is Liabunya, can you please provide me with his contact details.

Lever Dewah - 5 January 2015

Those destined to die should just die. I do not care what "prophets" or "false prophets" predict. I care about what Elohim, God the Creator of the Universe wants. I repeat, those whom God have destined to the grave should just die.

I thinkthose that hate Mugabe are the lazy and cowards that want to live as other people's slaves. If we all talkof total freedom even the sanctions that you think were brought because of mugabe will have no effect. We who know what oppression and total freedom is we will love mugabe to lead us untii his time set by God comes. Not time wished for by evil people.

JEMEDZO - 6 January 2015

If it be in the will of God then so it shall be but if not no man tells God wat to do. LEt us wait and see. Hupenyu ndehwa Jehova ndovanopa nekutora. Chengerai kutukwa munhu waMwari uyezve chenjerai kutadza kurespector those in authority. C Mugabe as yo leadre from God and respect that morega kumhanyira Mwari kumberi. Yes things are tough but give GOD the glory zvakaoma kudaro. He z so faithful mufunge

The Word from the Lord is that President Mugabe will not die in 2015 nor will his wife and neither will they be hospitalized except for routine examinations. The Lord says Mugabe will retire from his office in several years. That is the Word from the Lord
