Prophet Uebert Angel (born Hubert Mudzanire) is a British Zimbabwean religious leader and a business person well known for being the founder and leader of Spirit Embassy, The Good News Church.

In February 2023, the TV news network Al Jazeera released the trailer of a documentary that supposedly linked Hubert to corruption in Zimbabwe. The documentary, which the network said was in 4 parts, did not have a release date at the time the trailer was released.


Born: 6 September 1978. [1]

His father Samson Mudzanire passed away in May 2016. A memorial service was held at Doves Funeral Parlour in Harare where Emmanuel Makandiwa gave a sermon.[2] Angel's mother Rose died a few days before Christmas in 2021 aged 81.[3]


Tertiary: two university degrees in finance, one post-graduate degree in education from the University of Bolton and a Masters in Entrepreneurship from the University of Edinburgh. [4]


The Formation Of Spirit Embassy

Angel established Spirit Embassy Ministries in Manchester in 2007. He then launched a TV Station, Miracle TV in 2011. [5]

Angel had relocated to the UK and spent 13 years there, coming back to Zimbabwe in March 2011. He reportedly mentioned that he was mandated by God to come back to Zimbabwe as a way of fulfilling God's command (the Great Commission of spreading the gospel to all nations) to preach and to perform miracles.

Appointment As Presidential Envoy and Ambassador at Large for Europe and the Americas

On 17 March 2021, Uebert Angel was appointed Presidential Envoy and Ambassador at Large for Europe the Americas by Emmerson Mnangagwa. Angel was appointed to seek trade and investment opportunities. [4]

Reports indicated that Angel declined a salary for this particular appointment. He reportedly declined an estimated US$15 000 a month salary package and additional accompanying benefits. The calculations were made by Nehanda Radio based on the salaries and benefits received by ambassadors during the 2009-2013 Government of National Unity. [6]

He was given a fully kitted office at the State House. In an interview with Lance Guma in December 2021, Angel said Mnangagwa had not appointed him Ambassador at Large and Presidential Envoy with the intention to mobilise votes ahead of the 2023 elections. [7]

Business Interests

Spirit Embassy Ltd is a registered company in the United Kingdom which is owned by Angel and together with his wife Beverly are involved in the company with the wife as a director in the venture.[1] He was reported to own other companies registered in the United Kingdom. These include such as SPIRIT EMBASSY MINISTRIES LIMITED, MIRACLE TIMES TV LIMITED, LEVI HOUSE LTD, COFFEE ISLAND (PVT) LIMITED, BLACK STALLION LIMITED.[8].

Angel has an interest in a bank called Brits Money.


Beethoven Hotel & Harare Hippodrome

Beethoven Hotel is situated next to Harare Hippodrome. According to reports, the hotel when complete will have 40 executive rooms. [9]

Uebert Angel was building the 6 400-seater Harare Hippodrome. On completion, the multi-purpose conference centre would be the biggest indoor facility of that nature in Zimbabwe. President Emmerson Mnangagwa and Vice President Constantino Chiwenga officiated at the groundbreaking ceremony a few weeks after Mnangagwa appointed Prophet Angel Presidential Envoy and Ambassador to the Americas and Europe.[10]



It was reported that Angel correctly predicted the death of the first President of Autonomous Region of Bougainville, Joseph Kabui. He is reported to have predicted the death of Michael Jackson and Margaret Thatcher as well. In 2013, an online article stated that Angel announced that he had resurrected 29 people, [11] his publicist, however, denied such a claim was made.

Miracle Money

Angel became popular when he reportedly performed the miracle money. He first performed the miracle in Botswana where an estimated P2,4 million was miraculously raised and given to congregants. The miracle money ranged from loans, banknotes, airtime and cash multiplication. [12] Miracle money involved congregants having their bank accounts filled with money. He repeated the said miracle in South Africa where hundreds of people were said to have received between R20 to R100 000. The miracle money was not received well in Zimbabwe. The then Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe Governor Gideon Gono reportedly said the miracle was against financial laws. As a result, Gono called for a press conference with Angel and Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa who was also performing the same miracle at his church. At the press conference, Angel denied creating money but said the prophets were only restoring money that a congregant had lost. [13]

Inducing Labour

At one point (±2013) Angel came under fire from women organisations after he reportedly performed a miracle that led a woman into labour. Angel allegedly stretched out his hands and placed them on the female congregant’s belly causing the woman to fall down, break her water and go into labour. The woman identified as 'Mai Masauso' was quickly taken out and confirmed to have dilated by as much as 2  cm. [14] Mai Masauso was then taken to hospital where she delivered a boy and named him Uebert.

Dysfunctional Electrical Gadgets

In one of his sermons in South Africa in 2013, Angel allegedly performed a miracle that saw all the dysfunctional electrical gadgets working again. Thousands of TVs, cell phones, laptops, refrigerators, stoves, and irons allegedly came to life in an instant. A car dead for two years was reportedly restored to function. [15]

Private Island

In January 2022, it was reported that Angel was selling his private island on Lake Victoria in East Africa. The island which was valued at US$4,7 million at the time is almost 200 acres in space and only 30 minutes from the mainland. [16]


Liverpool Prophesy

In 2013 Angel was alleged to have prophesied that Liverpool would get the English Premiership league, an allegation which he seriously denied. The following year he went on to file a US$1 500 000 defamation lawsuit against South African broadcasting station, SuperSport. [17] Angel reported that a State Media paper misquoted him predicting a Liverpool win. In April 2014 he went on to predict a Chelsea win at the hands of Liverpool. He was said to have correctly prophesied the goals and it came to pass.[18]

Predicting 2018 Zimbabwe Elections

Angel reportedly accurately predicted the Zimbabwe 2018 elections outcome. He apparently made the prediction on 22 July 2018 that Emmerson Mnangagwa would win the elections. The elections were held on 30 July 2018 and Mnangagwa was declared the winner on Friday, 3 August 2018. [19]

Car Lawsuit

In December 2014, Ndabazinengi Shava accused Angel of defrauding him. He claimed that Angel swindled him of US$300 000 after he lured him to seed a vehicle, a Bentley, worth that amount on the basis that he was to reap more than thrice of what he had seeded. [20] Shava also claimed that Angel had agreed to return the vehicle if Shava failed to get his reward within 8 months. [20] Responding to these allegations, Angel stated that Shava was tarnishing his image on the grounds that he was never the owner of the car. Angel argued that the vehicle belonged to Anderson Tagara and not Shava and that his brother Benjamin Mudzanire had purchased the vehicle from Tagara. [21]

It was later on reported that Shava, the man who sued Uebert Angel over a Bentley, allegedly was having a bad luck.

Relationship with Tudor Bismark

In June 2015, Angel was caught up in controversy after Tudor Bismark of Jabula International Ministries made allegations that the former was making allegations that he was affiliated to Jabula Ministries. Bismark accused Angel, and his spiritual son Passion Java, of misrepresenting facts. In his quest to clarify the matter, Bismark wrote on his website that;

"We - Chichi and I, and the ministries under our covering - do not endorse Passion Java and Uebert Angel, nor do we fellowship with them in any way. We have not sent them nor do they represent us in any capacity."[22]

Refusal of Entry into Zambia

In May 2017, Uebert Angel and his wife Beverly were denied entry into Zambia because of allegations that Angel was supporting Zambia’s opposition. He was accused of giving a lot of money to opposition leader Mr Hakainde Hichilema’s presidential bid in 2016. The prophet and his wife Beverly were reportedly sent back to the UK on arrival in Zambia after they had refused to comply with stringent conditions that had been set by the government of Zambia. [23]

Social Responsibility

Angel was reportedly involved in charity work since the inception of his church in 2007. Through its Adopt a Family Scheme, the less privileged families get monthly groceries in addition to having their children's school fees paid. Angel also runs a soup kitchen for the elderly at Bako reDonhodzo in Harare's Highfield suburb Harare. He and his wife Beverly give full course meals. Angel's reach is not only confined in Zimbabwe. He adopted a 74-year-old Motswana widow Jessie Molahlehqi and her four grandchildren who were living in poverty. [24] In Zambia, Beverly has donated thousands of dollars worth of goods.

Adultery Allegations

In April 2018, Angel was alleged to have extra-marital affairs. In reports, a fellow congregant named Melody Dzingai reportedly 'set him up' with other women. These allegations were made by Leeroy Elliot who exposed the WhatsApp messages. Elliot reportedly said

I was trying to handle this issue in a professional manner but these people, including Kelvin Silungwe (Prophet Bushiri’s publicist), hacked my account and posted a statement on the Facebook page that I had apologised retracting my statement that Melody Dzingai was organising girls for Uebert Angel and she is dating Shepherd Bushiri.

Whatever I was saying is the truth. I stand as Elliot Leeroy, Leeroy Elliot, I am not reversing this. They are trying to offer me money and they are tracking me. I am on the run, help me. I have been exposing the rot in the church; I have more sensitive videos and will post it if you try anything to harm me. I will never apologise, even in 100 years.

When Dzingai was asked for a comment she reportedly referred all questions to Maynard Manyowa who reportedly said,

The chats are not genuine. In fact, my sister lost her two iPhone and a Samsung S8 phones. We have made a police report and Elliot must return the phones. Elliot demanded R50 000 but we refused to be blackmailed and he threatened that he was going to expose what he calls dirty messages, but it’s all fake. He is bitter because he was fired as Melody’s personal driver. [25]

Al Jazeera

In March 2023, the Insurance and Pensions Commission (IPEC) wrote to insurance companies asking for information on Ewan MacMillan and Uebert Angel. This was after the duo appeared in snippets of an Al Jazeera documentary on corruption and looting in Zimbabwe, which had not yet been released.

<bockquote> The Insurance and Pensions Commission (the Commission) is required in terms of the Money Laundering and Proceeds of Crime Act [Chapler 9:24] to coordinate with Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) in the assessment of the money laundering and terrorist financing risks to which the country is exposed.


In March 2023, an Al Jazeera documentary called Gold Mafia (the first of four) alleged that Uebert Angel, an influential Zimbabwean diplomat (appointed March 2021 by President Emmerson Mnangagwa), offered to use his status to launder millions of dollars through a gold-smuggling scheme. The documentary alleges that gangs have turned Western sanctions into an opportunity to smuggle large quantities of gold and launder hundreds of millions of dollars through a complex web of companies and bribes. Al Jazeera reporters posed as Chinese nationals who were looking to launder large sums of money. The 44-year-old Angel, who claims to be a prophet and heads a congregation — the Good News Church — with branches in 15 countries, his business partner Rikki Doolan, said they could facilitate this.

Central to Angel’s alleged gold-for-dirty money operations was Henrietta Rushwaya, president of the Zimbabwe Miners Association. Rushwaya, is also the niece of Emmerson Mnangagwa, and told Angel and the reporters on a phone call that smuggling 100kg of gold each week would be no problem. “They can buy the gold directly in cash, because we are the only sector in the country that is paying in foreign exchange on a cash basis,” Rushwaya said during the call. Doolan offered to set up a face-to-face meeting with Mnangagwa on the sidelines of the COP26 climate change conference in Glasgow in 2021. The gang also offered to help launder money by building properties near the tourist town of Victoria Falls. [27]

Reported Asset Freeze

In April 2023, people named in the Gold Mafia documentary had their assets frozen by the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe, according to “inside sources at the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe”. They include Uebert Angel, Ewan McMillan, Kamlesh Pattni, and Simon Rudland. They are to be frozen until the Financial Intelligence Unit has finished its investigations.

Earlier, according to a memo seen, the FIU directed that the assets of Cleopas Chidodo, David Chirozvi, Mehlululi Dube, and Fredrick Kunaka be frozen. [28]

“A leading think tank” (Veritas) says the RBZ needs to deal with allegations of gold smuggling and money laundering, and the RBZ needs to be audited. The government has said it would investigate all individuals implicated in the documentary, and Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) froze assets of Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe security official Cleopas Chidodo, Aurex Holdings official David Chirozvi and former Fidelity Printers and Refiners senior executives Mehlululi Dube and Fredrick Kunaka. Chidodo, Chirozvi, Dube and Kunaka were secretly recorded by the undercover journalists speaking about their alleged roles in facilitating money laundering and smuggling activities. Aurex and Fidelity are both RBZ subsidiaries. The RBZ also froze the accounts of some of the people named in the documentary such as Ewan McMillan, Kamlesh Pattni, Uebert Angel and Simon Rudland. [29]
