Mathias Songolo of Mzimba has no kind words for Mzuzu-based self-styled Pastor Zebron who he says took from him K27 000 as “payment for anointing water” to cure his “cancer illness” but which only managed to get him “worse.”
Pastor Zebron who runs God’s Will Church of All Nations in the increasingly becoming “religious” city of Mzuzu has reportedly been “charging” for “anointing water” which he claims have healing powers.
But Songolo told Nyasa Times that it was all a “lie.”
He said: “I was utterly robbed of K27 000 to buy healing from Pastor Zebron but I was never healed.
“I had been in and out of the city for about five months in my home (Mzimba) and had recently been referred to Mzuzu Central Hospital. Doctors could not trace my illness until my sister recommended Pastor Zebron to me. I was failing to eat and couldn’t do anything so really I had no option.”
He said together with his wife they visited Zebron for prayers but they were told to buy anointing water at two thousand kwacha and anointing oil at twenty five thousand kwacha.
“We said we didn’t have such an amount of money because we had at the time was only K22 000.
“We were told to go back and fetch the remainder because they said once I drank the water and got anointed with the oil I could be healed instantly.”
But according to Songolo’s wife, Eliza Mvula, there “was no healing” even after they had paid the money in question the following morning.
“The situation only got worse. My husband kept sicker that we went back to the hospital. Now we are stranded and we don’t even know how to get back,” said Mvula.
Sources told Nyasa Times that the water that is being sold is a “dilution” of “holy water” from TB Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN).
‘Pastorprenuership’ is increasingly becoming an easy “money getter” for most of Malawi’s self-styled “Men of God.”
Recently, media has been awash with South Africa based Malawian Pastor Hastings Salanje, of Wells of Revival Ministries, posing with posh cars.
Some quarters, both in Malawi and South Africa, claim the source of his wealth is also “controversial.”Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
