Magaya constructs stadium

PRETORIA - Prophetic Healing and Deliverance (PHD) Ministries is in the process of constructing a 15 000 seater stadium in Waterfalls, Harare, its leader Walter Magaya revealed in South Africa at his church’s on-going crusade in Pretoria.

Magaya said the sports facility which costs a “few millions dollars” is meant to develop and promote talent in the community.

“It’s not only the soccer stadium I am building in Prospect, Harare but also two basket courts, volleyball court, a running track for athletics and I am also planning to include a boxing ring.

“I am building this facility mainly for the benefit of the community. I have discovered that Zimbabwe has a lot of talent but we are failing to identify and promote them,” he said.

Magaya was not at liberty to reveal the total cost of the facility.

“The facility is valued at just a few millions of dollars but I can assure you that the stadium is going to be one of the best quality facilities in the country.

“I want to promote sport at the highest level. It is my wish and desire to employ professional sports administrators once the facility is completed for the benefit of the community,” he said.

Magaya reiterated that his money is coming mainly from his ministry partners.

“Most people think I make money through church offerings but to be honest most of our cash comes from our partners. Offerings collection (money) is not enough to sustain our projects,” he said.

The PHD Ministries leader said he loves soccer and playing pool-table (snooker) in his spare time. Speaking to journalists, Magaya expressed no interest in joining Zifa as the president if given the opportunity.

“I will not take that offer to lead Zifa if given the opportunity because I have enough on my plate at the moment,” he said.

Meanwhile Magaya told journalists that his ministry — PHD — is different from other ministries in terms of growth.

He defended the hiring of buses from Zimbabwe saying “most of the people who were on those buses are my ministerial workers. Our ministry is very complicated and there is no way it can run without ministerial workers.

“In PHD Ministries we have 18 different departments. Some of the buses used were not hired but well-wishers, such as Munenzwa, offered us a bus for the trip for free. Critics can go ahead speaking but that cannot stop us from moving ahead as well,” he said.

Some critics said Magaya is taking advantage of the economic situation in Zimbabwe to woo big crowds.

“What attracts people to come to PHD Ministries is not the economic situation but anointing.

“I am not taking advantage of the economic situation in Zimbabwe but take note of what is currently happening here in South Africa yet it is economically stable.

“We are also taking our crusades to the United Kingdom soon and people will see for themselves,” he said.

When Magaya arrived in South Africa for his four-day crusade being held at Tshwane Events Centre and is running from October 1 to 4 — there was a near stampede at OR Tambo International Airport as thousands of his followers jostled to meet him.

Let there be light to those who criticize the hiring of buses to ferry Ministry workers to South Africa for the crusade. Am a PHD ministry partner who once accompanied Prophet Magaya to Botswana for a similar crusade. To tell the truth, Ministry workers (in their numbers) are very important in controlling the crowds and assisting those who would have manifested. It is important to organize a successful event that would lift or raise our national pride high. Prophet Magaya has a vision of how things must be done. So why criticizing the Ministry. Join us during our next crusade or come to any of our Sunday services to witness what happens and witness the greatness of god. IT IS FREE OF CHARGE. You are welcome.

we appreciate the good work the Prophet is doing but he needs to improve on his communication skills and on expounding the word of God

Sithole you seem to worship your prophet than God. you have the odersity to write the name of your prophet in capital and belittle God in small letters

wezhara - 6 October 2015

Beloved citizens: Please don't get emotional about anything. All these happenings are just fulfilling prophecy in the scriptures. Iwe verenga shoko se shoko chete. Mwari vakatendeka vanokurakidza chokwadi. And the truth shall set you free!

Thank you Wezhara. you commented on a trivial issue that just required a bit of editing to use a capital letter on the word God. I worship the living God. A prophet is there to guide us. He is a man of God. Once more join us in tapping the anointing at PHD ministries.

God says do not judge unless you want to be judged........ food for thought.

Topfatopfa, the truth will make you free and not set you free.

This Magaya man id hallucinating,the so-called prophet constructing a stadium,kkkkkkkk.we have reached the end of times

carson macate - 6 October 2015

Ignorance can be dangerous- this guy says "why build sport facilities instead of a church" For you information prophet Magaya recently announced that he plans to build a big church worth +- $100 million. Wise Up get informed!!

The blue shed is appropriate since even the national stadium cannot accommodate the numbers who come to PHD Ministries.

Wisdom is the property of God.It is therefore important to ask God for this virtue before commenting.Without that we are likely to go astray in our comments.Prophet Magaya is doing a great job for body and soul.His teachings are great and to the point.Lets encourage our children,grand children,friends and relatives to watch Yadah TV and learn new things about the Bible.

Dehwa - 7 October 2015

We thank you man of God for all the work that you are doing.I am a PHD partner,the problem is most people who make negative comments on the man of God have never been to the church.For your own information,the stadium will benefit most children,lets be careful with some of the comments that we put because some will feel embarrassed one of the days when their children benefits from the stadium.MBIRI KUNA JESU

Further to my other contributions on this article, I wish to add that whatever Prophet Magaya is doing is there to accomplish or to balance the following equation that make-up a healthy human body in the eyes of God:- Spiritual + Soul + Physical body= A health nation( Population). His teachings and actions are meant to balance the above equation. For instance, the construction of stadium will fulfill the Healthy physical body his teachings, healings, deliverances and the Holy bible will ensure that our soul and spirit are up-lifted. Due to space I cannot proceed further but I say to the critics " Accept the good work done by the man of God Prophet W. Magaya". May the lord bless all the good work.
