Mliswa slams Makandiwa’s prophecy of Zanu PF victory

Norton MP Temba Mliswa said Chamisa accepted perks from Mugabe but wants his MPs to turn-down loans


Temba Mliswa, an independent member of parliament for Norton constituency, has criticised Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa for predicting that the ruling Zanu PF party will win the 2023 elections by a wide margin.

Mliswa, who is a former Zanu PF provincial chairman for Mashonaland West, accused Makandiwa of being biased and misleading his followers. He said Makandiwa’s prophecy was not based on God’s will but on his personal interests.

“Makandiwa is not a true prophet. He is a Zanu PF sympathiser who is trying to influence the voters with his false prophecies. He is not speaking for God but for himself and his cronies,” Mliswa said.

Mliswa challenged Makandiwa to prove his prophetic credentials by revealing the source of the economic and social problems facing Zimbabwe. He also urged him to pray for the welfare of the people instead of endorsing a corrupt and oppressive regime.

“Makandiwa should tell us who is behind the looting, the violence, the poverty and the suffering of Zimbabweans. He should pray for justice, peace and prosperity for all, not for a few elites who are exploiting the masses,” Mliswa said.

Makandiwa, who is the founder and leader of the United Family International Church (UFIC), one of Zimbabwe’s largest churches, made headlines last week when he declared that Zanu PF and President Emmerson Mnangagwa will retain power in the upcoming elections.

He said he saw a vision of a ballot paper with two columns, one with a tick and one with a cross. He said the column with a tick had Zanu PF’s name and logo, while the column with a cross had nothing.

He said this meant that Zanu PF had no viable opposition and that God had already decided its fate. He said he was not afraid to speak the truth even if it was unpopular or controversial.

“I am not here to please anyone or to seek votes. I am here to tell you what God has shown me. Zanu PF is going to win the elections by a landslide. There is no other option,” Makandiwa said.

Makandiwa’s prophecy has sparked mixed reactions from Zimbabweans, with some praising him for his courage and faith, while others questioning his credibility and motives.

Some have accused him of being manipulated by Zanu PF or seeking favours from the government, while others have defended him as a genuine man of God who has a track record of accurate prophecies.

Zimbabwe is set to hold its general elections on August 23, 2023, amid a tense political and economic situation. The main opposition party, MDC Alliance, led by Nelson Chamisa, has vowed to challenge Zanu PF’s rule and end its decades-long dominance.
