Warrant of arrest for Prophet Mbewe: ‘I will hand myself to Malawi police’

Malawi police on Wednesday stormed the residence of Prophet David Mbewe in Machinga with a warrant of arrest but could not execute it as he was not available.

Prophet David Mbewe:  Set to go to police himself

Police said they are  looking to arrest Prophet Mbewe, the Founder of Living Word Evangelistic Church,  on allegations that he has been holding services at Shalom Mount Valley in Machinga by not maintaining appropriate social distancing of worshippers despite government orders to combat the spread of coronavirus.

But when Nyasa Times reached Prophet Mbewe on his mobile phone, he denied the allegations, saying he has been complying with the measurers of Covid-19.

He said if police are looking  for him then he will hand himself to police station.

“I will go to  the police  station,” he said.

Police sources say Mbewe may be charged with unlawful assembly and violation of a public health emergency order.

But spokesperson for Prophet Mbewe insisted he complied with rules that state people must maintain a six-foot distance in public and less than 100 people gathering before lockdown measurers were introduced.

The spokesperson said the church went above and beyond any other business to ensure the health and safety of the people.

Recently, the preacher introduced a programme on Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) television to ensure that the faithful maintain the sense of spiritual connection away from attending church service.

Osaletsa anthu kupemphera. That is a grave mistake you will regret. Limbanani nokha zandale. Leave the church. Learn from the Wise and Dynamic Leader Magufuri of Tanzania. Mukudana ndi Church bwanji ngati matenda wa achokera ku Church. Mukuyanjana ndiazungu amene atitumizira matendawa chifukwa akupasani ndalama. Mwatenga atendawa kuchokela ku India, UK, Rsa ndi Canada in USA kuti muzunze anthu Mulungu bwanji? Udzapulumuka bwanji ukapanda kutembenukira kwa Mulungu iwe Malawi.

Zoti aletsa kupemphera mwazimva kuti? Kuletsa anthu kukumana in a building called ‘church’ ndikuletsa kupemphera ndizosiyana. By the way, the early effective church was meeting in people’s house and thousands of new converts were being added each day (Read Book of Acts). To those who pray earnestly, they will continue to trust God and God will have His way. Za Mulungu zilibe formula. Mudalirani Mulungu and He will provide way out. Mulungu sanathe nzeru ndi Covid. So Mr Chilenje, pray at your house and you will see that God of the valley is also God of the mountain. By the… Read more »

Now days we Africans have received thousands of Prhophets in every corner of our Africa these so called prophets are getting wealthier every day and the believers are getting poorer, if you think these 21first century prophets of yours are the chosen ones of God messengers, you been stupid beyond human imagination.
Oh,oh Africa it is definitely the darkest continent.
