Mpofu defends Makandiwa

Mines and Mining Development minister Obert Mpofu yesterday came to the defence of United Family International Church founder Emmanuel Makandiwa saying “his God given talent should be supported”.

Report by Nduduzo Tshuma

Makandiwa has reportedly performed several miracles at his church services, among them making gold and diamonds appear from nowhere.

The miracles have raised eyebrows with some people saying the prophet must be subjected to laws that prohibit unlicensed people from possessing minerals.

But speaking to NewsDay after officiating at the graduation of 271 police officers at the Ntabazinduna Police Training Depot, 40km north of Bulawayo, Mpofu said Makandiwa should be supported as he was helping the nation.

“I do not know him and have never spoken to him, but he is an inspiration to many people especially the youths,” he said.

“He is doing a good job and should be supported as he is bringing people together.”

“If it is true that he does those things, then he should be supported. He has his gift from God and no one can dispute or criticise that.
“If he can perform miracles let us support him. Why would people then go all the way to consult TB Joshua in Nigeria when we have our own Makandiwa.”

Mpofu also ruled out an investigation into the origins of the minerals that surface at Makandiwa’s church services.

“Government should find ways of assisting him,” he said.

“If he is helping the people and helping the country, we are a democracy that allows freedom of religion. Makandiwa has many followers who congregate in his church, meaning that his works are seen by the people.”

      Some people speak sense e.g Gono however others are total idiots, we dont need to go any further than You know who. So , no more being arrested for money laundering and illegal possession of minerals. Where are these people then selling their minerals?. Cheap politicking is a poor way of handling campaigns. I hope he was speaking on his personal capacity

      What are the serial numbers of the money miracled by one prophet Angel. What happenend to the gold and diamonds that Makandiwa’s worshippers suddenly found themselves clutching. This is total rubbish. Anyone who thinks this makes sense is a total idiot.

    mpofu doesnt know what he is saying.how can he toc of something he doesnt hev much knolewdge about.clear lies by a top thief like mpofu.he is downsizing his status by venturing into things he doesnt know about.clear politics to the politically immature imbesiless youths.Those youth who support ZANU PF didnt go to school and are not in a position to see where our economy is going.ln addition to dat, they dont hev their own words but infact they wait to be dogmatically indoctrinated by ZANU PF cowards who are in the climax of political desperation

    some people makes things happen, some people watch things happen some people wonder what is happening, some people were born to criticise, these people who just criticise for no reason are there to fulfill the prophecies, thus you cant be a great man of God without criticism ,the greater the criticism the more confidence we have for the man of God.

  31. Prof Chidembo January 25, 2013 at 1:33 pm #

    I just cannot understand how ‘Ever Obedient Son’ Obert Chiadzwa Mpofu Gushungo got his PhD at ZOU when he is openly so dull. Did someone attend the occasion where Obedient defended his thesis, and could someone tell us what it was about? Can someone put a copy of it on the internet for all to see? Dissertations of reputable universities are usually deposited into the library of the University concerned. Can someone please check this? My suspecion is that I don’t really think Obedient wrote the dissertation himself. Some minerals must have changed hands, I think.

    A minister of mines who does not know that it is illegal to be found in possession of precious minerals like diamonds and gold! You can’t go around with diamonds and gold in your pocket and telling the police that they were supplied by God via Makandiwa. This is madness!

    My only contribution is to Makandiwa. Makandiwa do not seek men”s praise, seek God”s praise and Glory. If you see people of the world, I mean those who are ungodly speaking highly of you then its possiblew that you have compromised with thr word of God. Light and darkness do not mix. When we grew up there were people like Ablankatabla who used to go around in schools performing miracles the way you are doing and those people were from the world. It is not the Minister”s fault to praise you, he is just taking an opportunity to be associated with false prophets who seek the world”s fame. To you all who are led by Makandiwa, are urge you to seek the Giver, that is God and not the gifts or miracles.

    • lessie January 25, 2013 at 2:34 pm #

      I thank God for giving us a prophet in Zimbabwe. Prophet Makandiwa has changed my life and of many others zvakanyanya. I now appreciate the bible like never before after listening to his message How to Conquer your Dark Areas. I can now pray effective prayers after listening to the DVDs Direct prayer and TImed Prayer. He has taught me and my wife about Marriage Foundations. Ndinongoti dai mwari arambe achivapfuudza mberi.

        The problem we now have is people are not longer giving glory to God but to a human being. Glory is to God only and he uses his people to manifest his glory but that glory should go to God not to me Makandiwa, Guti, Mupindu, Nhiwatiwa, Mudzvaire aka Angel, or any of the men of cloth but Glory be to God. Now people of Zimbabwe we are glorifying a man instead of God. Lessie’s life was changed by Makandiwa not by God and mark my words God will soon rule on who has the glory.

    With all due respect, minister Mpofu if at all he said that Makandiwa should be supported in his miracle Gold and Diamonds then the nation is in trouble.
    In other words from the day that Gold and Diamonds rained on the congregants, the mineral’s act has ceased to operate because all the illegal panners and criminals who have such minerals in their possession will simply credit Makandiwa for their illgotten fortunes.

    I dont understand the issue with the miracle gold and miracle money. are you pple judging the audacity of the miracle or the legality of it. Suppose i mean suppose it were true that followers received miracle gold and money, wont that be an economic booster to the nation. If Makandiwa facilitated the issue of miraculous gold surely the gvt shld assist in making it legal to offshore those minerals for money. If we are questioning the possibilty of a miracle then surely we have limited God to our reasoning capacity, the creator of heaven and earth, the giver of life. Nothing is impossible with God!!!

    maBible akazara zvishamiso,but the Devil can also perform miracles.Jesus warned us about false prophets who perform miracles,read Mathew 24v24 and Mathew 7v22-23.He said we will know them by their fruits.The Bible says all who received Him,He gave them power to become children of GOD,not of prophets(John 1v12).Some have spiritual fathers but Jesus himself said ‘And do not call anyone on earth ‘father’ for you have one Father,and he is in heaven(Mathew 23v9).The only spiritual Father I know is God(Jehovah).

      Just to give you insight, some passages in the Bible are written in parables, in some verses true believers in Christ are typified as Silver and Gold. AnaMakandiwa zvose izvozvo havazvione. In many cases the Bible emphasises of the spritual richness and spiritual poverty. AnaMakandiwa they look at the one side of the gospel, They do not even look at the side of the suffering of Jesus Christ , the trials and tribulations Where ithere is grace is judgement. AnaMakandiwa, what do you say about the verse in the last Chapter of Revealation that speaks of not adding or subracting from the word of God. Makandiwa do you know that if someone is preaching the word of God he will be prophesysing because the word convicts, edifies and comforts. What new prophesy do you have Makandiwa which is not mentioned in the Bible. Uku ndiko kuguma kwenyika kana vafundisi votadza kuparidza shoko rinoponesa. As a christian what miracle do you what except the gift of salvation, the miracle of salvation. Makandiwa I want to challenge you to read so many verses in the Bible which speaks about mafundisi enhema, all those verses they identify with you. Jesu anga ari Mwana waMwari , aigona kuita minana inoshamisa, wakamboona achinaisa gold kana madiamonds here? Aingoita zvinoita kuti vanhu vaponeswe. Mwari vachakutonga young man, repent and be baptised in the name of the father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and not in the name of Gold and diamonds. Nhasi uno MaMinister ave kutora advandage of your false prophesies.

          you mean an encounter with the man of God????????do people need an encounter with the man of God or with God?? the bible say in proverbs kushingaira kusina zivo hakuna kunaka.

    Lets see if the Obedient Son can be cured of obesity. I mean he is the “Largest Minister” our government has ever had ,and Makandiwa has made those who are fat, look slim and beautiful.So go forth Minister stand by what you believe in.As it is you are at risk of dying of a heart attack or stroke and the sooner and faster you lose weight the better.

    • Beya January 25, 2013 at 10:47 pm #

      U hit the nail on the head. He is grossly obese. Hwever he will never lose the weight coz he cant get used to his ill gotten gains. He will die sembuwo those blood sucking insects that die coz they cant stop sucking blood off cattle and other animals. Shame.

    Real men of God do not need the approval of a poltician to be taken as bona fide, Mpofu’s approval and disapproval is absolutely of no relevance, its neither here nor there in as far as the legitimacy of the so called prophet is considered. We know that he is after political points. Makandiwa’s messages, miracles (or “magics” as some have suggested) have to pass the bible test and that is what matters. The epicentre of Makandiwa’s message is that people have to give to Pastors in order to be blessed by God, why not encourage believers to also give to their needy parents, needy brothers & sisters, the poor in general,as africans it is a fact that we are saddled with so many extended family responsibilities as an aftermath of the HIV and Aids scourge, do we really have to give to the “Pastor” who in turn acquires a fleet of TOP of the range vehicles, houses and many other luxuries, and for conscience’s sake finally gives to the poor, in front of cameras, the remaining modicum on “our behalf”- This is expoitation of one’s gift to enrich themselves in a very subtle way, I have nothing against giving to ministry but lets’ guard against excesses.

  48. Salvation January 25, 2013 at 5:33 pm #

    You are right real men of God do not need the approval of politicians in fact hazvizvdzane. So the so called man of God are dining and feasting with the devil. AnaMakandiwa can not bring true prophesy vanotya persecuation.

  49. Jekefaya January 25, 2013 at 5:45 pm #

    Mpofu should stop trying to campaign using Makandiwa’s influence, he is just a government THEIF who has grown obess ( and a big ass) on the back of Marange diamonds, he is a betrayal of our trust in him as a lead, Zimbabweans are disappointed with him for failing to account for Diamonds money. May be vari vese mugame yacho naMakandiwa , yekuba mari dzevanhu iyi.

  50. sorojena January 25, 2013 at 6:06 pm #

    people easily forget that not so long ago we had the miraculous diesel in Chinhoyi! Its a problem when we have magicians and tricksters as our prophets, i feel sorry for those Zimbabweans who will part with their precious money all in the hope that it will miraculously double double!

    All the people who are for Obert supporting Makandiwa you are all lost, desperate and fools like I have said before and I will always say it nyaya yenyu yamwari, bible anf these miracles was brought by this missionaries vanova ivo varungu and they way you have embrassed it shows that you have been swept away. You keep on telling us about the second coming of the christ but the truth is pliz help yourself and look after yourself and your families not for god or jeasus to do that for you it show that you are cowards. You have the brains , the body and the earth to make sure that you survive. Ndosaka tisina mascientist kurudzi rwedu nekuti tinofunga kuti mwari achatiitira zvese ivo varungu vamunoshora very soon they will be living in Mars becoz they are busy discovering things using the brain that god gave them while you are sitting on your and chasing on Makandiwa’s miracles. Zvinokatyamadza uye kurwadza. You are busy backing Orbert who is desperate for votes. He is talking nonsese but it does not surprise becauce these guys were once hit for a massive SIX by that diesel n’anga and by his backing of this Makandiwa it shows not only is he sitting on the fence he does not want to appear to be on the wrong side and at the same time winning the hearts of those who are taken by this makandiwa crazy but it is bullshit and nonsense

    mpofu and zanu pf polititions are politically mature and wise. makandiwa iz an influential figure in zimbabwe, the biggest man magnet in the country today. tendai biti and mangoma should avoid at all costs making enemies of religious leaders such as makandiwa, angel, mwazha etc. ndokusaziva politics vane dzungu vanhu ve mdc. come electiontime the prophets will endose zanu pf.

      makandiwa for president

  56. Chinja 4life January 25, 2013 at 10:39 pm #

    I beg to differ Marvelous that not political maturity to base yoor support on lies. that Makandiwa, Angel and Mwazha popularity is just what we call Umlilo wamapepa( Moto wemapepa) the fire burns out quickly. We want to base out support on true values and i think Biti and Magoma are too learned to know that so pliz vasiye nedzunu ravo as you allude but I urge you to wait and see.

    U Makandiwa pple u are so dull, wen did this curse yekuti murume achadya cheziya go. God pronounced this curse and he also said mukadzi takura nhumbu, ucharwadziwa pakuzvara. Asi vakadzi vekwa Makandiwa vakuita ma miracle babies wo futi. Becoz if they woman are stil carrying babies fo 9months, man must also work to get food on the table not zvekupa munhu abva kunopomba neakatora murume wemunhu neakatora mukadzi we munhu gold ne diamond. If vanhu vekwa Makandiwa can live a lyf worthy of the gospel ndinga tenda makandiwa. Bt kwa makandiwa hakuna kana mu kiristo kana 1. Hunhu hwa kristo hahuna arrogancy. Mai makandiwa ndi prophetesy pakudini ivo vachigerwa zuda kudaro vachiparidza iro shoko rakati vakadzi garai pasi. Zvakatanga rinhi kuti mukadzi aparidze, iwo ma weaker vessels ava vakanyengedzwa ne nyoka.

    Minister vakangwara! Vafunga zve election! He knows that if he plays the right tune Makandiwa will in turn play the right tune to his followers and give him votes.

    Nice one minister! The “Government should find ways of assisting him,” quote had me rolling with laughter!
