Liabunya prophecy which hit the media earlier this year has now been under debate now as the days to Mugabe’s death near.
10 months after he made his controversial prediction, the preacher has expressed no regret saying Mugabe will die by the 31st December this year, News24 Zimbabwe reported on Wednesday.
“He made these utterances at the new year during a cross over service in Lilongwe.The service was held in Area 23 at Music Cross Road tent in Malawi’s administrative capital Lilongwe in the early hours of January 1st” a published report reads.
Liabunya said “Mugabe’s biological clock will not tick beyond this year ” after which Zimbabwe will be “restored” to be one of the richest countries in Africa.
The prophet said First Lady Grace Mugabe “will never win in Zimbabwean politics” and had simply joined politics to “protect her ill-gotten wealth,” for which she would be soon humiliated.
Liabunya said that it would be good for Grace to contest as she would give back wealth to the Zimbabweans during the campaign period.
This time the preacher says Mugabe will “certainly die as proclaimed by this oracle of God and I will be vindicated as God’s humble messenger.”
Liabunya is a controversial figure who has won himself a following over the last few years predicting accurate political events in Malawi. His followers say that he accurately prophesied former Malawian President Joyce Banda’s defeat in 2014.
But the preacher has been slammed for making false predictions all to seek popularity after during the same January service he told his followers that Zambian opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema would emerge as the new President of Zambia when the country goes to election on January 20, something which turned out to be untrue. The United Party for Development leader was beaten by Patriotic Front leader Edgar Lungu who ironically has been getting support from President Mugabe.
Church members charge the Prophet did not miss anything and had already said Lungu would win by stealth after obtaining help from Mugabe.
Liabunya had last year prophesied that the current Malawi ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) would be ruled by a youthful leader as there will be incessant rebellion, something which is yet to take place.
