Makandiwa predicted Zambia's xenophobia

HARARE - Popular Zimbabwean preacher, Emmanuel Makandiwa prophesied about the xenophobic violence that recently rocked the Zambian capital, Lusaka, according to a video posted on YouTube.

The video, which shows Makandiwa predicting the disturbances on April 9, exactly nine days before they began, has gone viral on social media platforms.

In the video which shows the United Family International Church (UFIC) leader speaking to local and international visitors at the church’s Life Haven base in Mt Hampden, the charismatic preacher called on the gathering, which had a sizeable number of Zambian nationals, to pray for the nation of Zambia in order to avert events “previously unheard of in Zambia”.

He said:  “I saw two secret meetings taking place and I was able to “attend” the meetings. And I saw people gathering to formulate a terrorist group... and I am seeing a protest rising up against it (the issue) about foreigners, is it a nationality thing or it’s an in-house thing,” he says, in what appears to be an apparent reference to the underlying cause of the disturbances.

Zambia, which was recently voted as the most peaceful nation in Africa, was rocked by violent protests aimed at Rwandan nationals believed to have been behind a spate of ritual murders in Lusaka and the government had to quickly move in to quell the disturbances which could have easily escalated into bloodshed.

Xenophobic violence has no history in independent Zambia and the recent events took many by surprise, including the Zambian president, Edgar Lungu who described it as a shame.

Two days after the prophecy, Zambian newspapers were lauding the prevailing peace in the country, in what some analysts have seen as an effort to dismiss Makandiwa’s prediction.

Makandiwa’s spokesperson,  Prime Kufa confirmed the prophecy and said: “They may have felt the need to give their nation such assurances seeing that Prophet Makandiwa has become a voice to the nations which cannot just be ignored and that his prophecy would have been taken seriously by their nationals.

“Some of the Zambians who heard of the prophecy were in polite dismissal saying though they believed in the accuracy and timeous fulfilment of Prophet Makandiwa’s prophecies, Zambia was an exception when it comes to violence.

“This thing might not move a lot of Zimbabweans but the Zambian nationals who knew of the prophecy before it’s fulfilment are in awe. Many have been calling our offices and some sending texts to express their gratitude to the Prophet of God for having called for such a prayer, without which, worse things could have happened. Most of us could never have imagined that such a thing could ever happen in Zambia.”

Kufa said on the same day, Makandiwa gave another prophecy on the need to pray for the aversion of a British Airways plane disaster at Heathrow Airport and a few days later, a drone collided with a BA plane on approach to the airport.

“We have to thank God for such a man. When he accurately prophesied that gold production levels would rise, it was inconceivable amidst the closure of the big gold mines that was taking place but ever since, gold production has been on a high and even recently our president acknowledged it,” Kufa added.

“The Zambia prophecy comes soon after Prophet Makandiwa gave another prophecy on South African deputy president, Cyril Ramaphosa which was fulfilled to exact detail.

“Prophet Makandiwa has become an international voice over the years, giving accurate prophecies over nations and many of his former critics have accepted that love him or loathe him, he surely has a prophetic eye and is a man whose voice cannot be ignored,” said Kufa.

The purpose of a prophesy is to let the children of God be prepared of impending disasters or mishaps. Please dont twist facts to suit your greedness

people must distinguish a prophecy from prediction,those familiar with the history of zambia know of the tribal tension in that country and also the issue of barotseland,the indeginisation drive has also brought in extreme nationalist sentiment in africa such that predicting that citizens of any country will rise against foreigners is no prophecy but a prediction and probably security intelligence,dont be fooled

THere is something to be said about prophesy and Africa. It seems to me that most "Prophets" are in Africa and for the most part in areas with great poverty and desperation. I am sure there is strong correlation between poverty and the rise of false prophecy. Makandiwa, Magaya Angel etc.. all began to thrive as Zimbabweans became desperate and seeking divine intervention for our problems. These guys are good at this act. None of them, I repeat, none of them are true prophets but opportunists that are just taking advantage of people. For all the people that believe in their prophecy can anyone show me something they have done to alleviate the suffering of people other then line their own pockets.

The devil is behind the violence, he planned it and caused it and told his messengers what he was doing to give his messengers prophetic clout so they continue to deceive.

KKKKKKKKK if you were following the Zambian politics since that imbecile Lungu took over, even a little kid would have known that there will be attacks on foreigners. Mugabe was himself 'assaulted' by a mob meaning Zambia was ready to attack what they perceive as 'unjust'. Lungu created the mess Zambia is in hence anything is possible. Would that be a prophesy if I tell you that someone in the ZANU PF will die of an accident before 2018? Watch the space and please give me money when my prophesy comes true.
