Three hundred and fifty women, above the age of 60, were on Saturday surprised with food hampers and blankets valued at $27 500 from United Family International Church (Ufic) Prophetess Ruth Makandiwa during the church’s Mother’s Day celebrations at the City Sports Centre.

Women members were asked to attend the special service with their mothers and mothers-in-law so they could honour them by giving them presents to mark the day. Some mothers shed tears when they were presented with gifts as big as refrigerators by their daughters.

The day was set aside for the women church members to thank their parents for bringing them into this world and for the roles they have played in their lives.

  1. Using their money to buy them hampers. What a bunch of idiots. Kikikikikikikikikikikikikikikikikikiki…

    • @kikikikiki how one decides to spend their money is non of anyones busines except muridzi wayo.You can drink beer ,go get a prostitute,by cigarates ,tithe ,by a house etc and its non of anyones busines. so if you belive in giving it away to a church, vadzimu or whoever its your money so stop critising how people spend their money.PS i myself dont believe in these new churches and the way they woship more of man than God but its still their business not mine and i wont go criticising everthhing and anything they do.

    • Seriously you are really lost and who is the idiot here when you dont appreciate such a great thing then what are you??????

    • Uyu mwana uyu anoda kurerwa uyu hauna amai iwe heeeeee zvakaipei zvikuitwa izvozvi izvi?????

  2. Dear mis inform*d and misguid*d above (kikikiki)
    This lady the wife of the Prophet uses her own funds for projects like these, iye ndiye anonzi muindigenous woman haagariri maoko anomira mira kushanda. The younger generation; those below 60 yrs could have organised this event and made contributions for their mothers, even if its the congregants’ money that came in to the church somehow, what’s the problem with that, its their money buying their groceries hanty, hu idiot hwuri papi ipapo. Mari inopihwa church kuti ishandiswe for things like that, surely God would bless the people who organised this event, food and blankets to the elderly above 60 years old? Hapana hu idiot apa, uku ndiko kutorongeka manje.
    How many mothers out there know that the gifts they received from their children on mothers day were gifts bought by money they had given to their children themselves? Does that make the mom or the child an idiot? Surely not!
    Even if u buy your mom a present with mari yako yawakashandira elsewhere, still, iwe kutombozvarwa navo wakazvarwa nani, uri waamai vako still you are coming from her. Hapana hi idiot apa!
    Let us commend and even copy good deeds as plain as they are when lead by example,
    Happy mothers day to all mom’s out there!!!!

  3. The difference between UFIC and other churches is that the former advertises its activities while other churches go about doing their things without much ado. In principle there is nothing wrong with publicizing your activities as long as glory must be to God. The headline and article unfortunately centres on UFIC not God and that is where the problem is.

    • Newspapers seek news worthy stuff to write about-positive or negative, its not a church advert my friend. If other churches are going to have the same impact as ufic, you will see them making headlines soon bro

    • @makwinja. Be guided correctly. UFIC doesnt advrtise. Vemapepa nhau ndivo vanoona kuti izv zviri news worthy here or not. kune ma photographer, ma writters, ma sub editor nema editor vanotogar pasi voisa misoro pamwe kuti tozvibuditsa mubepa redu here. vobvumirana. UFIC pavo pakuti kana ma Journalist vachida ku attenda ma services vova accrediter vovatendera basi. This is not an advert. IF u want to see UFI adverts – remember the run up to Judgement night 2? thats advertising.

  4. I’ve noticed that anything on the extreme naturally attracts and sells as news
    The UFIC mothers day event was an extremely good thing
    IF it therefore attracted some news reporters to the scene, then should we say UFIC advertises its events

  6. Nhai iwe kikikikikikikiki, pane mari yako yawashaya here zvauri kungochema. Kana pasina apinda muhomwe mako nyarara. You dont have any idea wat u’re toking about, ‘getting poor folks’ hard earned money’ my foot. Ma poor folks unomaziva iwe? Indava uchingobvotomoka mhani iwewe? Kunobva mari yevanhu ava unokuziva?

  7. Thank you Prophetess Ruth Makandiwa for the best mothers day celebrations. You created a a platform for mothers and their daughters to love each other. you are a blessing to our families and the nation of Zimbabwe. Thank you mother for this lovely event takaona kubata kwaShe

  8. well done to ufic and prophetess makandiwa, that was very commendable, now our mothers understand this church better and are willing to come with us. What a great way to unite families

  9. wow this is really great the formula to having long life.Great Mrs Makandiwa next year tichatoziitawo.

  10. izvi zvinoda kutendwa, next year takutogadzirira a bigger programme, hapana akabirwa mari, takatengera anamai vedu zvipo

  11. Dr Makandiwa inga havasi kudzoreka nhai mai Makandiwa ava.Keep it up.Do it in their faces.

  12. i was there and what a priviledge to see woman who are 60years and above being appreciated in church.This woman is seeding to long life the Lord said honour your parents this is the first commandment with promise and she is doing that.Hope other First Ladies of Churches are paying attention out there.

  13. This is really great work being done by the man and woman of God.Great staff keep it up.

  14. This woman called Prophetess Ruth Makandiwa is richly blessed.

    Money is a challenge to everyone in Zimbabwe, most people are not employed and what makes you think she is getting money from church members.

    Wake up to the real world and know that God is her provider.

  15. Thank you New Day for potraying the good work that Prophetess Ruth Makandiwa is doing. She is a shining example to us all. On this day it was not only about presents. Its was the reconcilliation of families. There are lots of children that do not take care of their parents and the church UFIC is modelling them to take care of their parents. We living the gospel as UFIC taught by the Prophets E and R Makandiwa. For those that are criticing, go and read Ephesians 6 vs 1-3.

  16. wow this is wonderful…mapenzi ariapo they ddn evn gv theirs mothers anythng..u might actually realize tht some of those gogos varikuchengetwa naprophetess vabereki vavo, basa rekuswero shora mabasa amwari vachitadza kuchengeta ana mai vavo uko
