Salanje trending on social media: Malawi pastor proudly rich

People who love to stick their nose in things that don’t concern them, be warned. Don’t do it on Pastor Hastings Salanje because he will tell you point blank and before you offer unsolicited advice to him, make sure you drive better cars than his.

Trending on social media is none other than South African based Malawian Pastor Hastings Salanje who says God has just “embarrassed” [sic] him with blessings beyond appreciation.

The self-styled super rich pastor has been making rounds on Facebook, with photos of his trendy cars going viral, making him the most mentioned tag in Malawi.

Hold on, he is better placed to tell you things and not the other way round. The rich Pastor currently based in South Africa posted on his Facebook wall that it doesn’t make sense for somebody with no bicycle to be busy telling him what to do.

“Whatever I write on this page is not up for debate. You came on my page to learn not to teach me. Keep your teachings or your sermons on your page. If you want to teach me, then first show me what God has done with you, I will respect you and hear what you are saying,” posted the man of God adding:

“I have been a winner since 1993, I came to Blantyre as a poor man in 1999, but within 3 years I made it to the top in ministry and in wealth, in ministry thousand swere coming to my ministry, the sick were healed, the blind saw and cripple walked. You saw real miracles on your TV screens. If you were young then ask your mother or your father that, about Pastor Salanje,” spoke the man of God.

According to Salanje, even the time he was in Malawi, his backyard was so full of posh cars and he was never poor like a church mouse.

“On wealth, my yard was also full with cars. I was using a convoy as well there, paying all the church bills from my pocket money, including TV programs. I have never had an offering or salary as a pastor, I have never received any gift up to now, but I have given people good gifts including millions of money and over 22 beautiful cars.”

About his second rise, Salanje posted:

“I came to south Africa as a poor man too because I left everything in Malawi, few years down the line I have started making it to the top and soon newspapers and media houses will be talking about me in the whole world. “

“Now you are even failing to buy a bicycle but you think you have wisdom to come on my page and teach me right? Are you not ashamed? What have you done with God? Or what has the bible profited you? Stop that nonsense. You can’t teach me, you are too young and too little, I know the people who can teach me but am sorry that person is not you,” posted Salanje.

Salanje believes his wealth is as a result of his hard work as a servant of God. He responded Grace Mizaya Muha’s comment on his relationship with God.

“You cannot serve God faithfully and remain the same for the rest of your life. Yes we have to suffer but the suffering must not go up to 20years. Who served God and remained in needy? No one. Now the bad thing is that if God can deny you now in this life, then He can deny you in heaven. Because what can be the interest of God to deny you here on earth and receive you in heaven?” explained Salanje and adding some pieces of advices:

“People must be careful with how they think about God. If your boss refuse to see you in his office, or give you the benefits at work, what makes you think he will receive you at his house and give you the benefits if you go there? People must stop thinking like children. The first thing God will do in order to show that he is happy with you is to bless you, nothing else,” answered Salanje.

But is being rich having many cars? Salanje responds.

“Yes to be rich is to have many cars apart from other things. Cars are luxury, check in the bible kings were known by how many chariots they had not how many houses. Everybody sleep in the house, but surely it’s not everybody who is driving. Some cars are expensive than houses. The money for one car you can buy two houses in Nyambadwe or in any other good area. If you can spend more on luxuries then you are truly blessed. I will be straight forward,” Answered Salanje straightforwardly.

The bottom-line is, don’t go to Salanje’s page to teach him if you have nothing. Well, seems the blessings are flooding to his children too as observed by his son Gift Salanje going by the name Iam Salanje on Facebook.

“Sunday after church things, only noticing now that I wore same colours with my car lol. This is really my baby. God can embarrass you with blessings. If you will only be willing and obedient, you will eat the good of the land. Isaiah 1v 19,” posted the junior Salanje.

Rewinding events, back to 2012, an artcle on Nyasa Times titled “Salanje eyes USA: Don’t call me Satanist when I become rich,” the man of God explained how he was to be one of the richest pastors in South Africa and that his dream was to go as far as USA. Could the dreams be coming ? Time will tell.

    Now it is seen that not all who preach or heal are pastor. Becareful,normally it is satan who boast of material things. Jesus was also tempted. He is arrongant, did he know that even kings were advised by slaves?

  10. xenophobia says:

    DON’T BE FOOLED WITH THIS MAN. THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS THAT GOD TELLS US TO BE HUMBLE EVEN IF WE ARE BLESSED WITH RICHES BUT WHAT AM GETTING FROM THIS MAN IS POMPOUSNESS AGAINST THE BIBLE TEACHINGS. IF YOU TOO WANTS TO BE LIKE HIM JUST CALL HIM ONE ON ONE SO THAT HE REVEALS TO YOU THE EXACT SATANIC WAY OF HIS RICHES AND NOT BEING BEHIND THE BIBLE OR ELSE BOTH OF YOU WILL END UP IN HELL.

  12. Zoona says:

    Please tell this learned Pastor the story of Poor Lazarus in the same bible he claims to know so much about. Lazarus was poor and ate residues from the table of the rich man but went to heaven after he died. What nonsense is this so called pastor talking about. Which bible does he use? Shame on you!!! Was God not happy with Jesus? Was Jesus a rich man? The bible says let not your left hand see what your right hand is doing. May the pastor interpret that. If we are rich let’s not shoot our mouths out it lest we be exposed for the hypocrites that we are.

    Vuto la amalawi, problem of most malawians is they were taught that if u want real wealth you must be poor on earth, forgetting that God Jehovah is the author of riches, gold, silver, name it, now Pastor Hastings Salanje is living what the word of G-d says, if you obey me G-d, blessings shall overtake you, instead of borrowing a leaf from Salanje, some poor niggaz who cant afford a 3 meal per day is busy calling Salanje or sorts of names, mukhalira zomwezo anthu osaweluzika inu, mmalo mofufuza kuti Pastor Salanje akutani kuti afike pamene alipo, nzanu ali ndi ma company opanga za solar etc, inu muli busy kumutukana, hehede unatcherenga unaona nyatwa, mukhalira zomwezo, bola la mw gvnt lilibe chidwi in helping enterprenuers to establish companies for solar energy, we have the lower shire, along lake malawi & even along shire river where solar is available big time, why can’t mg discuss with people like Dr. Hastings Salanje to invest in Mw and help in energy sector, what you knw is pulling him down, shame on Malawi. Nkuona people mumawaseka kuno akapita kunja akumakachita boo ndikumaphaka money, njale kumugulira domestic worker, musova pyakwanga lol!!!

  30. nyavizwazwa says:

    Pastor Salanje, Do you mean heaven is only for the rich? IFor it is difficult for a richman to enter the Kingdom of God. Thus the bible and it is Jesus Himself saying this. Do you mean His teaching was fackie. no way The trueth is once riches overcome your mind you even forget God.

    Kusakhale kobisalirako kwa Yehova. He will never take that forgranted.

    Whether you do not want any advice but what is read will always be remembred

  31. rudolf phiri says:

    Tumps,
    There was no al capone in the god father, and which al capone from anywhere was a man of god ? kikiki. Anyway, Pastor Salanje if God in heaven is blessing you then good for you. But take better care of yourself healthwise, otherwise I am salanje, junior Salanje will be receiving a premature inheritance. That body weight is dangerous Pastor.

  32. gwedemula says:

    kkkk koma munthu wakuda kukonda kujambulitsa pa ma galimoto! Zimangowonetsa umbuli komanso kuti chumacho sichako koma wangogwilizira chuma cha wina amene akupanga zakumidima koma sakufuna kuwonekera poyera, muzalangidwa nazo izi chonsecho mukungogwilitsidwa ntchito ndi ma mafias

  33. Dziko says:

    Inu awa amaodetsa ziwalo za anthu awa.Mwaiwala mbiri zawo?Amapha anthu ndikumatakatitsa ziwalo zawo.The guy is also doing this only to divert,or refute those past allegations where he was found in possession or accused of selling human parts by bringing another controversy of having poshy cars. This guy will be struck by God’s anger, he will die of a miraculous death soon.It could be hypertension,sugar disease or something else.God is angry with him. There is a saying in the bible whereby Jesus was teaching, or God told Lot to distribute his wealth to the poor so that he could get a longer life span. To Salanje,that is not the case,but its time to showcase what he is accumulating illegally and with no nod from God. He is on the list of people who will die miraculously from God.Tiyeni tiwone kapena tidzingoona mmene zithere.Wealth accumulated without education is a very dangerous combination,because you try to show the world now that I was destined for poverty,but now I am free from it. But once you are educated,you definitely know that I will have some wealth in future.

  34. KK says:

    Komvuta kwambiri munthu wa chuma kulowa mu ufumu wa kumwamba koposa Ngamira kulowa pa diso la singano. If the man of God says even the kings in the Bible were using Charriots, kings were like Presidents. But people of God like Paul, Peter, JOhn and other disciples of Jesus Christ were poor or if there was somebody who was rich on earth to the extend yomanyoza anthu ena omwe ali ndi njinga za kapalasa then i need to be educated. Among the disciples of Jesus Christ who was rich, their riches is kept in heaven. I don’t think God will blame somebody that he stays on earth for 20 years without being blessed. When we say somebody is blessed according to Jesus: “Blessed are those who are poor in spirit because the Kingdom of God will be theirs”. He did not mean material like cars and houses as the Pastor is saying.

  36. kene wa kene says:

    Reading what Salanje is saying on his facebook page, one is left with many questions than answers. He has never received any donation….. he doesnt work……… he is so rich…… he doesnt receive any advice……. he drives posh cars…… the question is what is the source of his worth? …… we might not as we do not have details…… but God is the ony one who khows the source of his wealth!!!!!!!!

  40. Achimidzimidzi says:

    Mr. Pastor Salanje, you really have the money and cars but you are not telling us the means of getting all that.

    I will still advise you because God loves you,do not be conformed to standards of the world and crave for worldly things. You maybe using a wrong measure.

    Do you remember what Jesus said about the lady who paid the least offering? She paid from,..,,……….,.

  47. ujeni says:

    Salanje is a game changer slowly single handedly is changing the mindset of poverty afflicted Malawians. Soon Malawians will be demanding good life style good living standard all because Salanje has shown them the way.

    Iwe Salanje listen and listen good! I travel by the Chariot of the Lord with angelic hosts as my body guards. Can you cost that against your cheap metals on tyres if you can?!!!!!!! You can keep your blood money because as for me I draw from the Divine Heavenly Bank! My worth is exceedingly abundantly more than you can brag about or imagine! Human languages are so poor in vocabulary to describe my worth in Christ! That makes your R100, 000.00 offer less than pocket change! May God have mercy on you and open your eyes. Go to hell and please go a little more quietly!

  54. Reasonable Man says:

    salanjeeeeeeeeeeeee. wabebatu.

  55. Chipapwiche says:

    Its surprising that those that call themselves believers are also taking time commenting on whatever Pastor Salanje is posting. I won’t be one of them for I have no right to be the judge to criticize or condemn Salanje’s actions. One thing I wish to know is what those commention the posts will get afterwards. If you really know the true characteristics of the real God we serve,you will save your time from this and be doing things that Will be glory to His throne. Let God judge whether or not Salanje is right. Let people be able to differentiate us for the glory of God

  56. George phiri says:

    This is a cup of tea for those christians who work day and night only to donate their sweat to men of God. I would have been very happy if only the pastor told us the kind of business that is giving him such money because going by his claims that their is no offering in his church then may be his wealth has other dark sources.
    I have never heard a person getting rich without any source. Which God?
    Tell us the business you are doing so we can follow suit than insulting poor souls who are your followers. Christians be careful because as jesus says in the bible; master did we not prophesies in thy name? This question will only be asked by those who use evil ways to invoke the name of Jesus. If your wealth is genuine please praise God but if ???????? Then repent for the kingdom of God is near.

  57. Malawian Mom says:

    NEVER HEAD OF THIS LUNER TICK BEFORE, WHICH MALAWI CHURCH WAS HE GOING WITH LINE OF CARS. WHO IS HE TRYING TO FOOL. PEOPLE KNOW WHEN THE T.V CAME TO MALAWI. IF HE USED TO HAVE ALLOT OF CARS IN MALAWI, DID HE LIVE ALL HIS CARS,AND THE MONEY TO THE FAMILY IN MALAWI. HAVE NOT SEEN OR HEAD OF ANY SALANJE,THIS IS REALLY MY FIRST TIME. I’ VE BEEN A BORN AGAIN SINCE 1964.

    IF YOU HAD ALL THAT MONEY WHY LIVING IT BEHIND, AND STARTING ALL OVER AGAIN. IT DOES NOT MAKE SENCE TO SOME OF THE KIDS ON FACE BOOK, HE IS THE MAN OF GOD, WHY SHOW AND TELL ON LINE. REASON WHY THE KIDS ARE COMMENTING.

    WHAT IS STOPPING HIM TO MAKE IT TO THE U.S.A WITH ALL THAT MONEY HE IS TALKING ABOUT.

    KOMAZOZIONELA KU UKULU NDIZOVUTADI.

    HE BETTER START EATING HEALTHY,IF HE WANT TO MAKE IT TO THE U.S.A. IF HE GOES TO THE U.S.A.LIKE THAT,WITH THE AMERICAN FOOD. THE AMERICAN ARE NOW MAKING THEIR CARS SMALL, HE WANT BE ABLE TO FIT IN IT.

    Leave Salanje alone, he is bringing the “A” game to Malawi. Yet we envy the Obamas, the Kadarshians, when a Malawian does the same envy and jealous cloud our judgement. Salanje lives an a western lifestyle it seems we cant handle it.
