Amidst mourning of sensational musician Grace Chinga who has passed away, controversial Pastor Hastings Salanje has blamed fellow clergy for her death ‘for doing nothing as men of God’.
Grance Chinga died after she suddenly complained of a headache when she was rushed to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Wednesday but later pronounced dead.
According to the pastor who posted on his Facebook timeline, Chinga’s death is a clear indication that as men of God they are doing nothing.
“This is an attack from the devil and it could be prevented if someone was to pray for her and command her soul to come back.
“If someone can suffer headache in the evening and die in that same evening and be taken to mortuary without thinking of taking a person to a certain man of God for a solution, is a clear indication that there are no trusted men of God in the land, “he wrote.
He further blasted the clergy saying they are busy collecting tithe when they cannot provide solutions to small problems healing the sick.
” What are we collecting the tithes for, if we can’t provide solutions to people? Let’s stop collecting tithes until we put our
house in order if we are to be serious.
“I am saying this because I know that it is possible, I remember how many people were reversed ( come back to life at the point of death) some of them gave up their ghost, but I had to refuse and bring back the person to life again. This could be the same case.”
He added: “The whole Grace Chinga going to the grave because of headache like that, without anyone to rescue her soul? I feel so ashamed to be called a man of God and yet we allow the devil to take people to the grave like that while we are watching. Any way Rest in peace Grace, we have failed you us as men of God.”
Meanwhile, Salanje’s comments have attracted several comments from Malawians asking him to come and pray for Chinga and bring her soul back if he is a real man of God since Chinga has not yet been burried.
The late Chinga died upon arrival at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Blantyre after a short illness.
Family members and close family friends said she only complained of headache.
Her body will be led to rest at HHI cemetry in Blantyre on Saturday 19th March 2015 after a funeral ceremony in the morning at the Robbins Park.-Additional reporting by Elijah Phimbi, Nyasa TimesFollow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
