Pastor Salanje admits being rude: ‘I don’t need Malawians, they are calling me Satanic’

Controversial Pentecostal ‘pastorpreneur’ Hastings Salanje has admitted that he is being “rude” on social media by flaunting his home, posh cars and also challenge anyone who could find a pastor that is filthy rich like him.

Pastor Hastings Salanje; Yes I am  rich and rude

Pastor Hastings Salanje; I am posting what God is doing to me and so many  people posts on Facebok whats happening in their lives, mine are testimonies

Pastor Salanje, a Malawian but now living in South Africa from where he runs his God Chapel International church in Johannesburg, ( he used to run in Malawi the Wells of Revival Ministries ), has become a social media sensation, by boasting on Facebook that no other man of God has his collection of cars and ostentatious wealth.

Salanje told Malawi Capital FM’s ‘Straight Talk’ popular interview programme on Thursday evening that he has no apologies to make for bragging about his wealth on Facebook.

Presenter Rhodes Msonkho in his no-hold-barred style of questioning, pressed Salanje whether he knows that he is displaying arrogance.

“Yeah, its rudeness,” replied Salanje then laughed briefly in an interview which was conducted on telephone and monitored by Nyasa Times through Capital FM live internet streaming on Thursday, June 11, 2015.

“Sometimes we men of God we must be rude. If people are taking things of God for granted, we must be rude,” he stressed.

Unlike most clergymen, Pastor Salanje does not use the social media platform to share scriptures or reach out to his followers but rather uses it to brag and show off his riches.

During the ‘Straight Talk’ interview, Salanje explained that he uses his Facebook page to post images of his expensive cars and upmarket mansion as a “testimony” of the God’s blessings to him.

“The page belongs to me and it’s me I am posting the pictures, they are testimonies,” said Salanje.

“When we are in churches we preach that God is going to bless us. When it happens, we comeback to testify. I am testifying, it’s not a strange thing,” explained Salanje.

“I have demonstrated the good of God in many areas like in miracles and blessings,” he added.

“I am posting what God is doing to me, “stressed the pastor.

His bragging has gained him a lot of criticism and Salanje branded his critics as “jealousy” people.

He said: “Jealousy can make someone not to be happy.”

Salanje was quizzed on assertions that he is a member of a satanic cult.

“I am not satanic. Even when I was in Malawi they were calling me Satanic,” Salanje said.

Pressed to disclose his source of the income, the Pastor said apart from his ministering, he has a solar system company in South Africa.

Quizzed on what he meant in a post on his Facebook page which stated that he was “embarrassingly blessed”, Salanje claimed it was written by his son, saying he meant God has embraced them with wealth.

“People can say embarrassingly or embraced, its same thing. God has blessed us,” said Salanje.

He said on Straight Talk that he was visited by an Angel who communicated that God was happy with him and he will be blessed, insisting that whatever he is showing off is a testimony of his blessings from God.

“A testimony is a testimony, it doesn’t matter where you can testify. It can be on TV or Facebook,” said Salanje.

He also said there many people using Facebook to show off.

“People post so many things on Facebook,” he noted.

Asked if he can assist most of the impoverished Malawians from his blessings, Salanje claimed he has already given out five top of the range cars and money to people but declined to name them.

“It will be an insult to the people I have given the cars t[If I were to disclose their identities],” he said, adding “I am yet to do more.”

He also expressed rage on Malawians for character assassination when they see someone doing well.

“I don’t need Malawians – they are calling me Satanic. I don’t need you. I am doing it alone with my God and am achieving things, I only need God,” he said, sounding furious.

“Many Malawians who are making noise are frustrated. They are calling men of God Satanists. They smeared Prophet Bushiri but he is doing great here in South Africa drawing crowds [sharing the Gospel],” he said.

The radio host also asked Salanje to comment on his claims that Apostle Enesia Chitheka’s illness is a punishment from God.

Salanje maintained that Chitheka snatched another woman’s husband and rebelled against her father as such God decided to punish her.

“No apologies on that statement,” he said.

Salanje hinted that he plans to go and live in United States of America but will never return to reside in Malawi.

    The media and us are making Salanje famous and continue bragging. If people stopped commenting on his riches, or following his comments on fb or indeed if only our good papers wrote about something else than salanje news, then the man of god would perhaps forget his riches publicly, and thank God in privacy. The man of god would start preaching salvation and the soon second coming of Christ, which people need to be reminded of.

    This guy is a follower of the devil. He is Lucifer in his own. Zinthu za devil zimaoneka zokoma pobwera but believe me Salanje you deep inside also are worried about your end. You know better than us what the devil is capable of doing when he starts taking his things back. You will pay with your own life and mostly very painful death. I can assure you painful death awaits you but before that you will go through embarrassments. No wonder your son wrote ’embarrassingly’ instead of embacingly. These are not the same, you say they are the same because you understand with the devil’s mind. You should be ashamed of yourself.

  27. chiipiraachaje says:

    Read this comment Pastor Salanje you are shit and we are tired of you. Real men of God do not exchange words with people but instead they tell them that God loves them.

STOP SPECULATING ABOUT HOW HE OBTAINED HIS WEALTH, IYEYU WAKUUZANI KUTI NDI MULUNGU SO WHAT IS THIS SPECULATION ALL ABOUT?. IT IS BETWEEN HIM AND THE GOD HE CLAIMS HE HAS BLESSED HIM.

  30. Ezekiel Mangani says:

    I have only one set of verses for Hastings Salanje. Let him read 1 John 2:15-17. For ease of reference, I quote it here for his benefit: “Do not love either the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him; because everything in the world-the desires of the flesh and the desire of the eyes and the SHOWY DISPLAY of one’s means of life does NOT ORIGINATE with the Father, but originates with the world. Furthermore, the world is passing away and so is its desire, but the one who does the will of God remains forever.”

  31. Sapitwa says:

    This is being materialistic. Really 30 cars and other property should be an issue to be bragging about from this whole pastor who should have known better?
    He needs to be very careful for not worshipping his property or God may deem him as worshipping other Gods in this property.

  32. kanyimbi says:

    The bible is always against showing off.

  33. Za ziiii. Let him lead his life. Was he born with you? Why do Malawians always talk about what other people are doing? That is his life. Malawians don’t mind about their business. It is a sickness. Salanje too should mind about his business. Richer people like the Bill Gates and other whites don’t do this. But blacks as a race, we have a problem.

  34. Gibo says:

    Iwonder salanje only mention god on hisspeaches without mention jesus christ? That means he is afraid of jesus

    This Pastor Salanje is a very good man of God because he discloses his wealth and property he owns unlike others who hide. Let’s not waste time on useless things, just pray to God your own luck leave him alone God has blessed him profoundly. Why don’t you talk about those pastors who venture into katapila business

  37. Smith says:

    Salanje akulemba zimene mulungu wamuchitira, inunso lembani zimene mulungu wakuchitirani.God has blessed him abundantly. May God continue blessing you Pastor Salanje. Malawians are jelousy people. That’s why in Malawi National Anthem, Amati gonjetsani nsanje. Let him alone.

  41. NYONYO says:

    Salanje note that salvation does not come with cars..king solomon said ‘its vanity’ preach the good news of salvation ..tell you followers to know the True God not god of Bling bling…Salanje no car or money on that day of armaggeddon will save anyone only your faith and good deeds. Salanje know that the mode of preaching using money and luxuries is not acceptable Gods wants their heart not wealthy.

  45. GIFT SAMU says:

    It is wrong paintng the image and name of apastor like pastor Salanje

  46. Kindom ya Atumbuka says:

    Becareful good people, & be wise. Dont castigate @ someone we dont know unless God reveals to you. You may found yourself confronting God. Sometimes just comment with God in your closet. Remember Gamariel speach in the bible and see what happened to Datan & kola. Yes we re given power to confront demons but not men of God. If it is satani thats how they get way to ruin our lives through the humliation statements we make . Lets be true chritians and the devils shall fall & we shall see with our naked eyes. Africa has produced a lot of powerful prophets but suffering is just too much. Look at Malawi , region , township its prophet prophetes and how they are shunning the peasants who embraced them in the genesis of ministry. lets serve God and share the spoil.

  47. Felix says:

He looks confused and lost . People don’t get aroused by this person . These are the last days . Let the prophecy be fulfilled .

  51. the abductor says:

    Salanje is only tyring to express his oneness by being honest and the majority of malawians for the fact of being poor, they cant like these things. Salanje go deeper!!!!!
    tell these stupid labouerers

  52. George Lihoma. says:

    Munakakhala ndinu mbusa wa mipingo with its own government and constitution, anakakuitanitsani ku disciplinary committee for a disciplinary action. These are kind of acts zonyazitsa chikhristu,onani ma comment ambiri omwe akukudziwani kuyamba kwanu alemba zosakhala bwino.

  53. yamikani says:

    I know Salanje even his child hood was selfish but let him say what ever he can say of his riches. The same applies to pastors who commonly believes in testammonies,if a church member have the right to testamony what about his pastor? One thing I like you all to know is the rest previous churches like RC,CCAP,ZEC even Zion just mention a few until now they don’t involve in testimonies so if you say the secret of God you mean what? Also you be hold your secret for it is between you and God.Only the words of god to be shared not ayi ndinasiya kulima chifukwa cha mulungu kodi amene akulima ndi ochimwa onse? Tiyeni tisamale ndi zobwera.

  54. Mabuchi says:

    Pastor, why not disclosing those who received cars from you and them coming open as testimonies as you always do? I feel betrayed as somewhere I was beginning to believe you!

    let salanje brag.we all differ in defining success in life.may be to him & the god he worships having all the posh cars,ravish mansions,& bricks of money means Gods blessings.who r we to judge lest we wait for judgement day.

  57. kaka 17` says:

    satan is being worspipped by these pastors and they exchange their souls for fame, rich, powers etc. just like musicians they worship satan in a form or name of baphomet, others like khanye west said it live on stage and i quote “i have sold my soul to the devil”
    we know all about the underworld kingdom and the queen of that throne (mermaid) which is nothing but a devil who is decieving people by taking away their souls in exchanging for power etc.
    those waters and oil take them to a witch doctor he/she will tell that its for ndondocha or tokoloshe or small boys.
    God through us converted a very powerful Sangoma or witch doctor who reveal some of these things to us. she even when further and tells of big meeting they have with these decieving pastors

  58. Masoambeta says:

    I am not a jealous person but will rather air my logical views on this story. There are people with money while others do not have it. The strange thing in life is that people do not tell each other how they make their money. Or rather, people do not reveal the machinations towards by their luck to obtain colossal amounts of money.

    However, I have observed one common thing amongst people with money. The following is my observation: those with money and wealth obtained through evil and satanic ways are very harsh, showy and cruel to those without money. They usually show the true origin characters of their wealth which is through evil and oppression to disadvantage others. These people are always wanting to be on the limelight of society to show off with pomp and might.

    On the contrally, those whose blood and sweat truthfully brought wealth and money are always humble people and down to earth with introvert characteristics. This might not be the total case but generally I have observed so. Even the bible gives close calls to these analogies.

  59. Rodrick says:

    Becarefull man of god am not gonna use the word God instead. Remember its millions reading these news of u Pastor Salanje and remember if u r saving the real God he might take u down as the word of God says ukadzikweza iye amakuchepetsa ukandzichepetsa umakwezedwa. So what ever happens plse update us.

  60. Gogo says:

    Riches come from God the creator.Those who attach riches of men of God to satanism are instruments of satan targeting prophets of God.Shame on satan and his men!

  69. ujeni says:

    True Malawians are damn too jealous, poverty has made them to be hardcore jealous people, look when they see someone doing well tgey start to smear him or her with all sorts of insults. Infact most of them are tribalist. The same way they envy and insult northerners. If you wear ziguduli walking barefeet abd behaving like Gwaladi, majority of Malawians will worship you Who is satanic then. Poverty is satanic.

  75. vavlov says:

    It is very rare for rich people to brag about their wealth; so this pastor is unusual. if indeed he is rich so be it as long as he has acquired his richness through honest means. The worst is if he is a drug lord, or dealing in illegal business. If he is honest; well done pastor, but the way you brag shows inferiority complex, By the way Malawi has many rich people, who do not show off. Besides these there are even more poor people who pray everyday but they are not rich, so explain how your prayers are so special to make you rich. Dont tell lies pastor, how big is your solar business?

  80. Again says:

    You look like you are over weight, what’s wrong with you, you have to look after yourself to live longer. Are you not the same person boasting that you are rich but you cant afford proper food and you are eating crap making you look like that. Anyway on what you have been saying, thanks, apology accepted. It was not you talking like that, it was a devil in you. You have to go and see a Prophet in Nigeria.

  82. Kau says:

    Yes Pastor Salanje we Malawians are pathetic people. When someone is rich then he is either satanic, because of magic or a thief. When somebody is very poor then its because he is uneducated, was womanizer at some point etc etc. We can not think positive about ourselves. No wonder the country is failing to develop. We are myopic from top to bottom.
