Makandiwa to open branch in SA

United Family International Church (Ufic) founder Emmanuel Makandiwa is set to open a new branch in South Africa as Zimbabwe’s charismatic preachers spread their wings beyond the country’s borders.


Ufic spokesperson Prime Kufa said Makandiwa will be in South Africa next week to officially launch his first branch.

“We already have five branches in that country but we are only going to officially launch the first one in Sandton next week from October 23-25,” Kufa said.

Makandiwa is following in the footsteps of another local self-proclaimed prophet Walter Magaya of the Prophetic Healing and Deliverance ministries who has in the past month been to neighbouring Botswana and South Africa for crusades.

Asked if they were following Magaya, Kufa said they already had branches in other parts of the region.

“We already have branches in Botswana, Zambia and Windhoek in Namibia. Two or three weeks after the South Africa event, we will likely be launching the Lusaka [Zambia] branch,” he said.

Kufa dismissed criticism of his church and other Pentecostal movements that they were out to fleece ordinary people of their hard-earned cash.

“I am not sure where people get those kind of things. The God we serve makes sure his gospel expands and we are just following his call,” he said.

“In this part of the world, we did not know of Christianity until the original churches that we all know came. It has nothing to do with money.”

From humble beginnings, Makandiwa and Magaya have turned into flamboyant personalities with business interests straddling different sectors of the economy.

    Kufa can deny it all he wants but the truth remains that the self-proclaimed prophet Makandiwa is a liar, crook, cheat, deceiver, swindler, daylight robber who promises people things that can never happen. Does anyone know of a blind person who now sees thanks to Makanndiwa’s prayers? Are there any neighbours of a known cripple who is lame no more after prayers by Makandiwa? This liar draws crowds to his church by perfoming illusions and fake or staged miracles which sadly the foolish believe is real. Paying any offering or tithe to this liar’s movement is like flushing it down the toilet. Now he targets the gullible in the upmarket Sandton area where he expects affluent idiots to part with their hard-earned resources. If only humans would wake up and see the light. For this nonsensical Prime Kufa to say he does not know where people are getting things like that from, who does he think he is fooling. The wise know what they see. It’s all there for any alert person to see. Do not be fooled. Use common sense.

      Bido, your accusations to the great Prophet Makandiwa are baseless. You just waffle nonsense you without facts. Pple are being healed by the LORD through the hands of His beloved servant Prophet Makandiwa. The revival is now sreading to South Africa and fools like Bido won`t stop it!!

    It is so disheartening to note that some people are just too ignorant. A person can go on to type more than a hundred words waffling about things he knows nothing about. You should not expect to get an answer when you never ask or when you consult the wrong people. It is funny that some people claim to be wise yet their folly is quite evident even in the eyes of a three year old. After reading bido’s comment all i could see is a person who does not even know how to hate and what to hate. I hope you will see the light soon. ;LET GOD LEAD AND LIFE BE.

    kkkk my friend l don’t know what to say concerning you but kuti titi rudo rwauinarwo nevanhu panonetsa futi ,handisikunyatsobata kuti iwe chinokunetsa kuitwa kweminana here,kuungana kwevanhu here,kubuda kwemari here uye mari ipi ,inobvepi ichiendepi,is it the love that you have torwads the South Africans or Zimbabweans?lf it is that you love the people so much that you don’t want to see them suffering that’s good but first we want to know how much you a doing for the people .Besides criticising people who a doing good in their own areas ,munezvimwewo here zvamunogona kuita.? lf you were a genuine person ,we should have known you before these people whom you a criticising came taigona kukuteererawo zvaunotaura .Ndinokukurudzira kuti utore nguva yako kuti uende wonoona wega these people whom you are attacking rather than kutaura dondo kwauri kuita unobva wanyanya kurasika chaiko .Pakauya Jesu panyika pakawanikwa vanyori ,vapirisita ,vadzidzisi nevamwewo vakawanda vaitofungira Jesu kuti arikushandiswa na Satan asi vari ivo vaitoshandiswa nasatan .They tried to paint Jesus by all means asi zvakadaro pane vadzidzi vaitomuziva nekumunzwisisa zvoreva kuti zvese zvakaipa zvataurwa concerning Jesus zvaitotaurirwa vaisamuziva kwete vaifamba naye .Same same nesu tinoziva Muporofita kuti was send to deliver people’s lives are not moved by any comments from people with their own agendas. Tikatarisa the Azuza street revival yakaita zvakare type dzevanhu vandataura vaya vanotaura offside but dai vakagona kuteerera the critics ,Pentecostalism ingadai isina kuzvarwa becoz from the days of Jesus kusvika Ku Azuza street revival pane vamwe vakadzima moto pakati ipapo.Same same inbetween the Azuza and now the fire was slowly quenched but thank God for the man of God like prophet Makandiwa who to me is the pioneer of the current revival which we are experiencing right now .ipapa vamwe havapatendi vanonzwa kunge ndatarisira vamwe vanhu vaMwari pasi aiwa handidaro but what l say is he is the pioneer of this one only like Azuza street revival itori na pioneer wayo iye akabvuma kushandiswa naJehova kuita zvinhu.When this revival stated ,the prophet of God said whatever miracle yaiitika pakatanga this revival was to spread munyika munyika yose ,vakati a lot of gifted man of God a coming but to some moto uchakurumidza kudzima becoz of sin specifically chemadzimai and the last words was( run away from sin) .God bless you all .

      What miracles happened to you?

      Hi Bido,
      You took so much time to write how bad Pr. Emmanuel Makandiwa is, would you please take time also just to tell me of how good you are (if you are a minister or God sent) or else the leader that you have who is the ‘good’ one? i just don’t find sense in the effort of saying something is bad and then you end without solution or pointing us to ‘the one’ or better right direction. ….

    Bido i think you strongly believe in illusions, dillusions and fiction of the films and drama more than the word of God, apart from miracles what a good vessel delievering God’s message to our minds, spirits and body is Prophet Makandiwa, Chipo from God for us bro.

    • bido October 19, 2015 at 12:23 pm #

      You think wrong. I am wise enough to not be taken for a ride. This chap you follow blindly is a liar. Someday you will wake up and see the light. Only your pride will prevent you from openly agreeing with me but deep inside you will acknowledge that I am right. You do not need anyone to tell you what you want to hear or promise you thing that logically cannot happen just like that. Use common sense.

        Fools claim to be wise, like bido the fool! And the Wisest are known by the great deeds the do for the Glory of God i.e. our Father Prophet Makandiwa is the the wisest of them all!!

    bido,wake up.if Prophet Makandiwa is not a man of God,then tells us,who is a Man of God?Tell the people,so that they go there.Dont just conclude things without giving evidence.Wat is fuuny is that you say people are blind.Are you telling me that all those thousands of people are blind and u are the only one seeing?You are trying to be like a Pharisee now.The Pharisees never saw anything good in Jesus.He was followed by crowds and they were not comfortable because people had deserted them and were now following a practical relevant gospel introduced by Jesus.They hated him to the extend of plotting to kill him.They labelled him a satanist,all because of ignorance.They only realised that he was of God when he had gone.Wake up.Time is running out.Be wise.Its better to comment certain things after investigations.Dont just rush to comment basing your comments on rumours and hearsay.Some of those people you hear criticising Prophet Makandiwa know that he is a true man of God but are just jealous.Thats church politics for you.Some are agents of the devil and dont want the word of God to spread.Bido,did the issue of offerings start with Prophet Makandiwa?Go to Roman Catholic,Methodist,R.C.Z,AFM, its there.Whats wrong with supporting the work of God?When you go to watch a warriors soccer game,you pay,fuel you pay but when it comes to supporting the work of God,the giver of life you are not comfortable.Do you know that those offerings are the ones which support all those crusades Prophet Makandiwa does?He is not given those venues for free.Wake up bido.Evangelism is something God loves.Jesus said there is Joy in heaven when one person gets born again.Did Roman Catholic start here?It spread from Rome,Italy.Whats wrong with Prophet Makandiwa spreading the gospel of God around the world?By the way,which church do you go to?Nobody is forced to give an offering.If its done at church you complain,but when people leave their goats,cattle,chickens and cash at n’angas you dont comment.
    Wake up Bido.You might criticise the very same man God send to you to help you in certain areas.Many people did what you are doing but faced a serious situation that no other person could solve,be it doctors or lawyers,until they ate a humble pie and went to see Prophet Makandiwa.Now they are living happily.
    Wake up Bido.
    Hope to hear from you soon
    Nice day Bido

    This bido is like a devils’ incarnate. He doesn’t have any fact for his arguments. I thought maybe he was lied to or cheated but he doesn’t shed any light to that so his it’s just an argument?? Based on what he doesn’t even know the man of God nor any scripture which forbids miracles and wonders. Jesus said if you don’t see any works in me don’t believe a word that I say….but then there are living testimonies from the man of God I wonder if bido has ever been into an encounter with the holy spirit.
