Police nab self-styled prophet Mwenyeheli for causing chaos in Lilongwe: Prophet Favour vindicated

Malawi Police in Lilongwe has on Thursday  arrested 40-year-old  self-styled prophet Kelvin Mwenyeheli of Christ Life Assembly Church in Area 36 for allegedly inciting violence.

Prophet Favour: Vindicated

Mwenyeheli is suspected to have made a prophesy about the missing, but found dead four-year-old Happy Banda.

The prophesy triggered violence in Area 23 on Monday as communities bayed for the blood of a businesswoman Mwenyeheli alleged to have  had a hand in the missing of the boy.

Mwenyeheli is reported to have prophesied that the business lady wanted to use the boy for rituals.

Property worth millions of kwacha was destroyed in the fracas that ensued between the residents and the Malawi Defence Force (MDF) soldiers who were called in to supplement security efforts by the Malawi Police.

The National Police Spokesperson, James Kadadzera, confirmed tothe arrest of Mwenyeheli in an interview with Nyasa Times on Thursday.

Kadadzera disclosed that the self-styled prophet is likely to face charges of inciting violence.

However, the missing boy was found dead in Lingadzi river. It is believed that he drowned,” he said.

On Tuesday, Prophet Favour denied making prophesy about the deceased boy and demanded apology from Benson Hodges of Watty Investments for defaming him through posts made on Facebook and WhatsApp.

Favour said it was unfortunate that some people wanted to use the social media to damage my name and reputation.

“I have never made such a prophesy at my church,” Favour told Nyasa Times.

Favour has since engaged Lameck and Co to institute legal proceedings against Benson Hodges should he fail to apologize as demanded.

And in his reaction to the arrest of Mwenyeheli, Prophet Favour said he was happy that he has been vindicated.

“I said it that I never made such a prophesy and some people wouldn’t believe me. Now, here we are! I thank God for laying everything bare,” he said.

The Same happen in Nigeria 2days ago when the prophet,prophesie that the child wanted to use her mother for rituals, henceforth he committed sucide because of the issue,here malawi is having same issue concerning rithuals this self proclaim man of God has to be given stiff punishment for others to learn from him

Ginimbi, the illuminate, the likes of Bushiri

Whether Favour is vindicated or not, the fact remains that these are thieves in suits, just look at that attire this guy is putting on, just like a captain of a dancing troup, always seeking attention with an aim of getting deep in the pockets of the desperate, a bunch of crooks!

Help me to understand something here. How/what was the prophency? Did the prophet kill the child? What makes it wrong to prophesy? Is it wrong to share prophency b4 time? There is real men of God out there whom God is speeking and revealing things through them. God reveals only things he wants to be revealed on cetain times acording to his own will and only by his own will. Though its not easy nowadays to differenciate Tiligu from Nansongole. The selfish, self proclaimed bastads, ana achinjoka Nansongolez of today kawili kawili akulitukwanitsa dzina la Mulungu wathu ndi dzimachimo. Mulungu… Read more »

If he had useful information, why not just inform the police and let them do their job?

Nkhani njakuti mwana anasowa and the mother went to the profit to find out kuti ali kuti. The profit said mwana ali kwa a neighbour anu amusunga mnyumba for rituals. The family descended on neighbor they thought the profit was taking about. At the time the owner of the house was at church. They searched the house and they did not find the child. That is when they started throwing stones and making a fracas. When the owner came she wondered what was going on and the people told her they are after her life for killing the neighbors child… Read more »

Whilst we may have prophets in these days, their job is different from Old Testament prophets; it is no more than just a priest like anyone who received Christ. These modern ones can not act as seers as we’re the old who directly spoke for God. They must just stick to preaching and sharing and stop lying that they can foretell and forthtell for God. Don’t believe their lies. Trust God in Jesus and every believer who received the call and carries Jesus’s cross has the helper, the Holy Spirit.

Such a sad story. Many pastors have so little education but so much influence. Many are there for status and a job and nothing else… no difference from witch doctors. Unfortunately many people believe what pastors say, as well as what they read on social media, so can be herded like cattle to do terrible things. If we simply learned to love each other we could resolve such problems without stupidity. I hope the ones that destroyed property simply on heresay will receive an adequate sentence.
