A NUMBER of legislators reportedly scrambled for anointing oil from Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries founder Walter Magaya that was presented to them as gifts accompanying invitations to the charismatic preacher’s all-night prayer meeting to be held in Harare tonight.

Magaya has invited all MPs for the all-night vigil dubbed Turnaround Night 4, where First Lady Grace Mugabe was supposed to be the guest of honour.

The invitation cards were distributed to MPs in the august House last week and in Victoria Falls at the budget consultative meetings.

MDC-T deputy chief whip, Dorcas Sibanda confirmed that all MPs had been invited to attend the service and were presented with a gift that comprised a DVD and anointing oil.

“I am one of the partners of PHD Ministries. Every Member of Parliament was invited. The MPs were provided with parking discs and VIP cards that were accompanied with a token comprising of a DVD and anointing oil,” she said.

“From my knowledge, all MPs, who were in the House scrambled for the anointing oil, which they wanted to take to their wives and husbands. They were happy with the anointing oil.”

Sibanda said Grace, who invited Magaya to her birthday party in July, would be the guest of honour at the prayer meeting that is expected to be attended by the country’s two Vice-Presidents Emmerson Mnangagwa and Phelekezela Mphoko.

However, NewsDay last night was told the First Lady was now doubtful, with indications that she had reportedly cancelled for unspecified reasons.

Several MPs and Zanu PF supporters were expected to attend in solidarity with their leaders.

“The prophet invited everyone. He actually signed the invitation letters himself. It is not a political gathering, but a spiritual one,” Sibanda said.

“The church is holy ground. I am a politician, yes, but I forget all about that when I am in church. It is holy ground.

“It is good that the prophet has seen it important to target leaders (MPs) because that is where the people whom they lead are.”

She said attendance was discretional.

Magaya, a fortnight ago, said he was expecting over one million delegates, a sharp increase from last year, where an estimated 300 000 were reported to have attended the service.

Harare West MP, Jessie Majome (MDC-T) said she did not despise other people’s churches, but would not attend the crusade as she was a Roman Catholic.

She said the invitation of Grace as guest of honour had added to her confusion.

“Yes, we were invited. I didn’t take the invitation because I am a Catholic. I am also confused if this will be a church gathering or a political party one by the invitation of Grace as guest of honour,” Majome said.

Zanu PF chief whip, Lovemore Matuke encouraged people to attend as it was not a political event.

“I urge all Zanu PF MPs, where I have a direct whip, to attend, in case God will bless us with rains. The crusade is about God, it is not about the persons invited,” he said.

“Actually, the invitation of First Lady Grace Mugabe should add more appetite to those who want to pray.”

MDC-T spokesperson, Obert Gutu said the MDC-T was a social democratic political party that upheld principles of freedom of worship, as well as freedom of expression.

“In fact, quite a number of our party members, including some legislators, are members of Walter Magaya’s PHD Ministries. We have absolutely no problems with that,” he said.

“The MDC will never adopt any policy that curtails its membership’s freedom to join any lawful voluntary organisation of their choice.”

  1. I hope these Mps also read the bible or they just hold it on taking oath of office. He is a jelous God and many are putting oil ahead of Him. Rushing for annointing (not annointed because these guys annoint nothing) oil without God is demonic.

  2. ”From my knowledge, all MPs, who were in the House scrambled for the anointing oil, which they wanted to take to their wives and husbands. They were happy with the anointing oil.”

    If every MP had an invitation then im bit confused about the scrambling bit ?

    “Actually, the invitation of First Lady Grace Mugabe should add more appetite to those who want to pray.”

    Really !!!!!

  3. Gutu is quoted as having said, “The MDC will never adopt any policy that curtails its membership’s freedom to join any lawful voluntary organisation of their choice.” I wonder if that also includes joining ZANU (PF) as ordinary card carrying members!

  4. Revelation 16:13-14 (KJV)

    13 And I saw three UNCLEAN SPIRITS like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the FALSE PROPHET

    14 For they are the SPIRITS OF DEVILS , working MIRACLES, which go forth unto the KINGS OF THE EARTH and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

  5. Magaya a satanist , so does it mean ZANU-PF is officially a satanic movement? If you are from PHD ministries looking at the state of the economy and how your situation has been made worse by ZANU-PF wotoona Magaya achiita take take nayo ZANU, uchirikuitei muchurch imomo? 70% of people no longer want ZANU and Magaya ndoyaanoita hushamwari nayo uchadzidza hako.
