Chiefs felt that the prophet went off track and ordered the gathering to stand up and carry the remains to the resting place for burial because there was no need to listen to the message.

“He has gone beyond preaching, this is now attacking people’s belief which is not good in a society where people are free to belong to the religion of their choice,” said Chief Kuthindi.

Gulewamkulu stormed the prophet’s residence, shouting and demanding him to leave the area immediately before he faces unspecified action, the group claimed to have been sent by the chief.

“We have been sent by our Chief to chase out this prophet in this area, we don’t want to see him anymore,” said one of Gulewamkulu.


He further said members of Gulewamkulu respect the prophet ministry but now he is confusing people with his preaching.

Meanwhile, Gama has embarked on intensive prayers and calls upon his followers not to get disappointed because God is the only deliver to their problems.

“I believe there are some groups in the area not comfortable with my ministry because they fear losing their members and doing everything possible to damage my reputation through traditional leaders but this will not yield anything,” Gama said.

Senior prophet Gama who originates from Tete province in the Republic of Mozambique started his prophetic work in 2006 after God had appeared to him and his ministry has reached over 500 people and is currently putting up a structure near the Natural Resource College turn off in the outskirts of Lilongwe.

  4. Youth League Chairman: Kawale 1 Market says:

    There is a popular Spanish Catholic priest named Father Julio. When he came to establish churches in Kanengo and surrounding villages in the early 1970s, he encountered stiff resistance by Gulewamkulu sect and elders alike. This clever priest struck a deal with powerful top chewa chiefs that ended with him being initiated into the sect (“kumetedwa”). In return, the chiefs allowed him to establish churches in villages in TA Chitukula and beyond and that Gulewamkulu members should never interfere with his church expansion and preaching work. Today, there are so many Catholic churches in TA Chitukula. There are so many Catholics in this catchment – most converts from Gulewamkulu sect. How many souls has Father Julio saved to date with his crafty strategy? So many!!!! In any case, culture and religion can co-exist. Its more a question of approaches taken.

  5. Dalitso says:

    Nyau dance is is a religion. Its based on evil traditions of believing in idols. They worship the dead. Its not based on love and peace. Its total evil and nyau dancers ought to repent. Finish

  6. ray says:

    Number 15, you are right. Nyau ndi satanism at its best thats why amakavina kumanda and goes there like nobodys business. You just hate this Man of God koma mudzamfuna tsiku lina and its very soon.

  7. Eli B. says:

    Guyx avoid using abusiv word when encouragng 1 another… The gule wankulu t is 1 of cultural beliefs that draws pipoz minds & make them 2 4get dat dere is God. T z de sam way hw others value there thingx which make them 4get Go dingx lyk money, sexaul partners, beer etc, lets prech de gospel until we o knw & realise n aquare dis salvetion, ts 4 evry 1… Olo tigendedwe, tinyozedwe, tisalidwe, tizingopemphera kut iye atipase nzeru n continue wit de jouney

  8. Prophet Bashiri says:

    Akapolo a Malawi. Kukakamila foreign beliefs. Ife ndi a Nyau period. A Chewa. A sophisticated society.

  9. galu says:

    mukulimbana ndi big dance mkumati ndinu anthu a Mulungu koma chigololo patsogolo,asatana inu

  10. golo says:

    #Tikondane you have just said what was on my mind -hitting the nail on its head. Gule wa mkulu is a cult and all those who practice it need deliverance from the spirits of the dead.Its very against Christian beliefs.Period.

  11. Kamuzu Banda spirit says:

    Those criticising Gulewamkhulu should not post their comments using their real names becoz, the Gulewamkhulu bosses will visit you during the night.

  12. ochewa says:

    We need to understand that culture z our tru identity… Azungu amene anabweletsa baibulowa kwawo akuloleza ma gay and yet they condemn our culture. Gulewankulu z ok ???? howeva sm abuse it. The ngonis in south Africa love their culture thatz y ngonis are famous.. Lets learn tu embrace our culture

  13. Tikondane says:

    Tifune olo tisafune, wanena munthu wamulunguzi ndiye zoona zake zenizeni. Nyau ndiufiti. Nyau ndimatsenga. Nyau ndichipembezo pachokha. Nyau ndiubale ndianthu akufa nkuwona amati zimadzuka kumanda. Ine ndikulemba panone ndiwaku central region; kuchimake kwa gule wamkulu. I’m not speculating as most of the comments above do. You cannot be a Christian (I mean a real Christian ; not a church-goer or a mere professor of christianity) and belong to gule wamkulu cult. Impossible. A cult is a cult. Something that is devilish belongs to satan. Anything that belongs to the devil is evil and sin. There is no compromise on that. If we were once initiated in nyau cult olo titati tinasiya olo kutuluka, tidakali ake asatana mpaka deliverance ichitike basi. The real nyau is not what we physically see but the spirit being behind it. Abusa ngati amenewa ndiomwe Mulungu amafuna; oti adzichinena chinthucho momwe chilili. Achewa anzanga, mukakamira gule wamkuluyu mukathera kujahena.

  14. mchewa wa paphata says:

    please, Gulewamkulu is a dance among chewa and is not religion, attacking it means you are attacking the chewas…the same as Ingoma and Vimbuza they are cultural practices. Siwonse a nyau omwe samapita ku church…musanyoze chikhalidwe cha anzanu…ndani amanyoza nyau za ku ndagala kapena likwata la a yao..Lalikirani za nzeru osati kunyoza mtundu..

  15. gama says:

    Please understand that the word of God is superior than any other cultural belief . If the cultural belief is not consistent with the word of God then it has to be abandoned .Don’t hate the prophet he is speaking the mind of the creator who is his boss and it is up to people to accept or refuse and face consequences

  16. Omex70 says:

    Guys, don’t be stupid by attacking the Bible. If you are not a bible believer you better watch and Guard your stupid mouth. The Bible is the Word of God. If you don’t know the power of God you better remain quite to avoid provoking the wrath of God on you. It is God who gives you life. It is not your culture that gives you life. Each one of us has culture but any culture that does not glorify God must be abandoned.

  17. Evangelist says:

    Nyau dance is not all that bad. but their practices; magic, assaults- beatings are evil and they will wind up in hell. You don’t have 40 years ahead of you, and you will regret being in hell. Repent and turn your sins to Jesus Christ. Believe in Him and have personal relationship with Him, then you will be saved. Acts 2v40.

  18. Nkula says:

    Ameneyu anawonjezadi. Nyau is one of very few respected dances in the world. UNESCO even protects it under World Heritage. Ndiye ka Prophet kena kaziti mfwee!! mfwee!!. This is a dance that was originated by masters of art and tradition, the Chewa, and ameneyutu ndiwofuna kulakwitsa anthu. Ask Dr Justin Malewezi, Prof Kanyama Phiri how they respect zilombo. Do you Christianity while respecting the owners of the land

  19. mphwache wa bingu says:

    Nyau is not only sin but it’s also dirty and it srinks

  20. Mapwevupwevu says:

    The article should read” he says God appeared to him”

  21. 2016 welcome says:

    That’s the inferiority complex typical of black people. They are so xenocentric. Look! Westerners came with Christianity and Arabs came with Islam. We all got proselytized to the extent that we dropped our names. No where in the world apart from sub-Saharan Africa where you will see people happy being called in foreign names that have no meaning whatsoever. For example names like Tarcizio, Viligilio, Amidu, Amina, Patuma. These are foreign culture that were imported in concurrent fashion with religion
    But because people have found employment opportunities in religion, they will do everything to defend such nonsense.

  22. Mozambiquian says:

    In MTR (Malawi TraditionalReligion) gule wamkulu is ONE of our respected mode of worship. So the prophet should not vanquish our culture. Let him go. Achewa chitani naye kanthu ameneyu.

  23. mwana wa leza says:

    We believe in Leza and Nyau. Ka Bible nka chaninso. To hell with all foreign religions.

  24. pido says:

    Prophet ongofuna kuba ndalama za anthu osauka. Gule its part of culture. Can you expalin its sin. You hide your sins you preachers pretending to be holy yet you are big sinners.

  25. Phwisa says:

    Ya because Malawi welcomes anyone from any country to stay here without being bothered of identity issues. I dont anyone can do the same in any country. How did he come to Malawi. Is he legally staying in Malawi. There are so many sing’angas from Mozambique in Malawi kumangobera anthu koma given red carpet treatment by Malawians. Depot him

  26. Mwana wa Mchewa says:

    Gulewankulu is part our of culture. Don’t be Westernised. Don’t forget our culture.

  27. Phusshi says:

    Prophet Mboro is back from heaven
