Gift Salanje has also hit headlines in the Sunday World newspaper of South Africa for joining his father in bragging about the wealth they have.

The paper described him as “ one of the most balling pastor’s kids in the country.”

It carried his Facebook posts where there is  his fathers’s posh cars and a sprawling house.

“So much that he even used to call himself ‘Gifty Bank’, because he laughs his way to it,” Sunday Word reported.

“Like father like son, Gift also uses social media to basically say ‘you could be living like me, but your dad is not a pastor’.

“A Lil #TBT (Throw Back Thursday)…when money talks, the world pay attention. I like things so I made it my spokesperson,” wrote Gift on Facebook on a picture with the cars at his place adding that “You can be in Christ and still be a baller.”

Pastor Salanje is already hitting headlines in South Africa not for his preaching but for bragging and show off his riches.

His Facebook page is littered with images of his expensive cars and upmarket mansion and attracted the attention of The Sowetan news. The Malawi media blogs and newssites have also given coverage to Salanje’s Facebook sensation.

Salanje started in a humble way in Blantyre, Malawi’s commercial city where he established Wells of Revival Ministry in 2000 in Chilomoni township.

He used to drive a black Benz with personalised number Salanje 1.

Salanje reportedly fled Malawi amid rumours which suggested he was a Satanist.

    That is modern pastors for you.Very few of them are poor and none have God in them.With so much wealth,how many poor hungry ,destitute people has he helped?
    I went to one of these churches in Pretoria and 95 percent of the sermon was about giving 10 percent of my income to the church.Immediately after the service ,i ran as far away from them as i could.
    Satan comes in many forms

  8. Zodabwits says:

    I feel sorry for Pastor Salanje and son can you please browse Rev. Park of China who saw heaven and hell and realised that he was blessed inorder to bless others all those cars what for that is selfishness. Other small churches have nothing herein Malawi. Bless them so that God can continue to bless you. materials on this plannet are nothing but goats droppings in heaven (ndowe zambuzi) search on the internet for Rev. Park he was the reachest pastor in China after seeing heaven and hell he decided to share his pochy cars and houses. Sikuti musalemere koma chenjerani.

  10. PA MALAWI says:

    A real pastor can’t introduce his wealthiest. He is premature,he is acting like a child. Shame to him his fellow brothers and sisterz are still suffering while he is proud with social networks and richer.

    there is no secret under the sun. God is tired with him now, its been too long. he is been exposed now by his own God, even his own son is his witness, he has joined hands.

    Alipo anzawo, a Lab Enterprises, school go! koma chuma nyumba 24, magalimoto mbwe mbwe mbwe. Kaya pakatipa anaphonyetsa chani , satana watapako zake zina. Nyumba ngati block ya ma flats usiku kuchezera magalimoto kumangolowa (izi zimayabira 12:00 midnight) Ntchito zogwira usiku nzotani? Kaya ma meeting a midnight ngotani?

    Koma ku Calvary nde amaoneka m’dalitso pa mpingopo. Kupereka mwakathithi. Kodi APOSTLE maiwa mukuwadziwa bwino bwino?

  20. Chigawenga says:

    If you want to become a millionaire from money handed to you by the poor become a preacher. These people are disgusting. I hope xenophobia finds him. He deserves tires around his neck. How can he brag about wealth through tithe he should be helping the poor and living humbly

  28. OGO!! says:

    I have never heard or seen a Pastor who worships worth as much as this Salanje. Why dwell on earthly riches the same things that these pastors even he himself tells his congregation that that shouldn’t be the case? How can he boast as such when some people in his own congregation are suffering on a daily basis? Why hasn’t he started a Charity in Malawi rather Chilomoni where you have lost of people suffering in many ways if he can give out 100.000 Kwacha just like that? I have my reservations…a lot point at zolakwika mu uzimu wa abusa Salanje or Salaje!! U are a foreigner in that country, the people u are preaching to are suffering and you have the nerve to boast about such wealth after the Xenophobia your fellow countrymen and God’s people went through? Bwinotu Bwino..ngati ali Mulungu amapatsa ndipo amalanda. Samalani!!

  30. Chipapwiche says:

    Nyasatimes,please concentrate on real issues that can improve the quality of life of Malawians. Let Salanje be Salanje,and God be God… If the God he serves is the true God of Heaven,He is indeed capable of transforming people;from bad to good,poor to rich,sick to healthy. He is a God of miracles and can do it with anyone else who gives his life to Him..

    I think pastor Salanje does not deserve to be man of GOD IF WHAT I’M HEARING IS ANYTHING TO GO BY

  34. Hon Banda says:

    I do not understand how Satan help these Salanje pple get money like this. Satanism is huge in RSA but what is the connection between Satan and Money. Where is this Satan? Who talks to him? God forbid.

  39. Achimidzimidzi says:

    Nyasatimes apandiye mwa bore. Do you respect the Salanjes, or you highly rate them? You have made me stumble here.

    Maybe, you are sent by the Salanjes themselves to advertise their wealth.

    Please tell them, although I don’t own a bicycle but I don’t seek cars neither being in foreign countries looking for affluence.

    Afterall, the kingdom of God is about righteousness and not food or wealth, so I don’t know why you’re calling him ‘pastor’ while basically he is in RSA to seek wealth. Fugitive as he is.

    Is God in South Africa only?

  48. mangochi kabwafu says:

    Galu wachabe chabe, mbava. This is one of these african thieves (pastors, prophets, apostles etc) who enrich themselves out of the povos. Jesus himself wasnt rich but he could if he’d wanted to.

    Nyasatimes instead of publishing stories of how to development our Country Malawi your busy writing stories of someones cars with his life.Its a waste of time we can do nothing about him leave him alone that’s his life provided his money is not from Cashgate or Churchgate.Such is life.

  54. thinktankmalawi says:

    When you have the”spirit of poverty ” ,you go out of the way to prove to people that you gat’s a sorry sight to see this silliness of displaying cars (that Lose value from day one after assembly) as a symbol of wealth…what A display of primitiveness !

    unfortunately we have pple with empty skulls who are taken advantage of.They shall continue embarrassing him with tithes which are unnecessary in all religionsmThis is a wake up call for all of you church goers.Church business is no Godly.There is a Creator yes but not the way all religions do it.Holy books were written by your fellow assholes as a frightening tool for the shallow mentally retarded assholes like you religion addicts.The conflicts we have today are religion-based ones.Middle east,CCAP etc because church business a very profitable business.You enrich the so called pastors,prophets…..fathers while you languish in extreme poverty and they become pompous bcoz they know you are dunderheads.You are cheated that you will go to heaven by tithing.Who has ever been there?No one!Heaven is here on the earth.Now now you are in heaven!You think The Creator can be so stupid to let you languish here in readnes of heaven where you will just be singing!Fucking 12 virgins in heaven while we already have them now now?Open up.Belief is just an illusion.Rely on evidence.That is why the learned dont believe in so called religions because religions dont provide evidence but just belief-illusions.Havent you seen with your own fuckin eyes losts of circular musicians turning to gospel?They wannt your money because with your belief and empty skulls you give them your money.Why all these fucking religions and churches,sunni and shiite mosques yet there is only one Creator?It is money,sex an greed.Wake up from your slumber!
