Pastor who prophesied Mugabe’s death makes surprise u-turn – VIDEO

A Zimbabwean pastor has sensationally claimed that God has changed His mind with regards to the death of President Robert Mugabe.

Remnant Church Pastor Phillip Mugadza had at the start of the year prophesied that President Mugabe will die on October 17.

He withdrew the prophecy over the weekend.

In explaining the withdrawal, Pastor Mugadza claimed to have received a fresh message from God postponing President Mugabe’s death  until a later unspecified date.

“About three days ago, I received word from God saying the death of President Mugabe has been postponed to a later date which is not specified,” Pastor Mugadza told Bulawayo 24.

The Pastor was arrested after he made the initial prophesy.

His lawyer told the BBC that his client had initially been charged with undermining the authority of the president, then “criminal nuisance” and finally “insulting people of a certain race or religion”.

“He’s admitting to the facts. He says he didn’t lie – that’s a message from God. Police will have to prove God didn’t say it,” the lawyer said.

Pastor Mugadza was jailed for 55 days and later issued another statement telling the President that he misunderstood him as he said President Mugabe would only die if he would not turn to God.
