Extorters swarming me: Magaya

BULAWAYO - Prophetic Healing and Deliverance (PHD) Ministries leader Walter Magaya says he is always on the war-path with extorters who want to have part of his wealth.

He told journalists after officially handing over more than 5 000 housing stands to desperate home-seekers from his congregation — through his multi-million dollar company, Planet Africa — during a ground-breaking ceremony in Douglasdale.

“I am fighting endless battles with extorters on a daily basis and the majority of them are those people who have interacted with me before I launched the ministry,” Magaya said.

“They think they are justified to benefit a thing or two from me because we used to interact before,” he said.

“These are the same people, who are peddling falsehoods in the media about the organisation, but I am glad that despite all those false allegations levelled against me, my partners stood by me.”

“As a result, the project is meant to benefit PHD Ministries’ partners, a way of returning the favour and love to church members for their faith and loyalty to the church,” he said.

The project at Douglasdale residential area is expected to be complete in the next five months or so.

However, Magaya said the massive housing project is not confined to Bulawayo alone, but will be taken to other parts of the country as well as countries in southern Africa.

“The houses to be built are not common, we are trying to build tourist attraction features. It will be gated communities across the continent.

“I will discount beneficiaries, 60 percent will be removed on all 46

000 houses to be established by the project in the country,” he said.

On behalf of Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko, Tabitha Kanengoni-Malinga praised Magaya for taking an initiative that he said will go a long way in alleviating the accommodation crisis in Bulawayo.

About 110 000 people are on the city’s housing waiting list.

this whole exercise was not done in love,who is God .because God s love does not discriminate.The example,if we are true ;prophets,Jesus didnt discriminate when He went to the cross for walter magaya and us all.

The problem is these people know you inside out Wale,these are the people you will never dupe because most of them grew up with you until just when you left them for the lucrative industry that you are now one of the most successful in the eyes of the world, which is also very profitable during times of economic troubles and goblin problems like the ones we are facing in Zimbabwe.90 percent of the people who throng your church services are mainly there for the reasons i have mentioned above.Varombo vanenge vachiti toda kuwaniswa breakthrough na Magaya vasingangazive ktui ndiye ari kutoita material breakthrough nemari dzavo.Ukuwo vamwe vane mari vanenge vakaiwana nenzira dzemishonga ne zvikwambo vanenge vachda kubatsirwa to destroy zvikwambo ne kana kuzvidzorera kuvaridzi.Zvese zvekuvaka dzimba dzekupa vanhu its all money taken from his gullible congregation wobva waita kunge stereki stereki.

Biblically wealthy &Godliness doesn't go along. From Genesis to Revelations I have never head about a rich prophet or that u need to raise money so that u can see a prophet face to face.What about those who can't raise that amount of money.Jesus was never rich no asked any one to pay for deliverance.Its now confusing. A church is now a market place selling water,oil&all sorts of fake things,,all in the name of deliverance.People,, I know life is tuff these days but please don't be fooled by these false prophets.The Bible says in the last days they will be false prophets who will move the mountains in Jesus name,,but he said he never send them.Moving mountains means they will do wonder,,miracles&everything humans can't do but they are not from God.They promise u the wealthy on this earth yet the bible says seek ye the kingdom of God first.Jesus never promote riches but he said sell all u got &follow me.All these prophets are promising u is vanity. Seek the kingdom of God not Earthly riches.Those who take the word of God seriously can understand what I am saying

Information is power. The level of lawlessness is just too high. Magaya should simply report these people to Police or name and shame them that is if himself is clean and upright. The current system is so corrupt that anyone who gains some advantaged through it , will have to give back to the system to remain afloat. Its like a food chain. The current system is very wicked. Stop feeding and patronising this system,.

Thank You Prophet for this gesture, may God increase you.It seems most of you commenting do not know anything about PHD Ministries except the negative reports you see in the press. Go to one of his services ( a live one) and see for yourself whether he is or he is not a true prophet. Beneficiaries are going to contribute some of the money so it's as good as a mortgage but a cheap one though.You certainly have missed out on this good opportunity.We don't mind what people say but the truth is isu tatova seri kwekuseri hameno vasina mastand!! Sour grapes....kkkkkk

It is so unfortunate when some people comment on what they are noy privy to. If you do not know much about anything do not open your mouth. This is worse when you are dealing with a Man of God. YOU DO NOT CURSE A MAN OF GOD NO MATTER YOU BELIEVE OR YOU DO NOT BELIEVE HE IS A TRUE MAN OF GOD.....Prophet Magaya you are a true Man of God. My own life is a testimony to prove you a true Man of GOD! Thank you for your obedience to the call of God. Your wisdom in all that you do is so amazing. This whole idea of the housing scheme is one of the issues that shows you have God behind you because an ordinary man can not do this even if they have lots and lots of money. This is just ONE of the several projects you are doing. How many people have ever done this???? I salute you prophet!!!!!! Tinemi. MBIRI KUNA JESU

The disproportionate and skewed power that religious leaders have acquired in the last few years exemplifies how government has abdicated its primary role to govern as well as deliver public service and utilities. Under normal circumstances, churches would have a very limited economic scope and capacity in which to operate in providing services that governments have a constitutional responsibility deliver . Furthermore, the regulatory role government is supposed to exercise on such entities has been severely compromised or is non existent. As a result, people like Magaya have stepped and encroached on these big ticket social issues because the government of the day lacks the willingness or capacity to address them. People have nowhere else to turn to, making Magaya and his altruistic activities to donate stands seem "heaven sent" (excuse the pun). Is it not odd that Kasukuwere and his ilk are using exactly the same methods to hoodwink people in mobilizing political support?.

Just a response to slow thinkers like Matsotsi, lanana wa Bhikaz, chauke farai and others of similar negative mind, it's time you wake up to the reality that Prophet Magaya is here to change people's lives and no amount of insults will stop him because he is fulfilling the anointed purpose for which God placed him in our nation. As Zimbabweans we should feel privileged to have a Prophet of his stature in our lifetime, and we give all glory to our God for the anointing favor placed in our nation. Why would Prophet Magaya waste his "stolen" money to make the same partners he is stealing from landlords who own their own quality houses? Zvimwe zvinongodawo common sense to see that you are speaking zvakadhakwa. As children of PHD we are blessed to be under Prophet Magaya's covering, and we can tell you with confidence that no ordinary human being can offer homes of such quality, to be built in record time and creating such a ripple multiplier effect in generating employment while giving ordinary lodgers a chance to own their own home at affordable prices. Compare what Prophet Magaya is doing to the sad situation prevailing with all those useless cooperatives stealing people's money for decades with no homes built or anything tangible to show for it. Zvimwe tendai wo please chakanaka chakanaka "mukaka hauiswe sugar". Thank you Papa Magaya. Mbiri kuna Jesu!
