Prophet Uebert Angel is a flamboyant Zimbabwean prophet known for preaching the gospel of prosperity as well as prophesying. Angel rose to national prominence in 2013 with his controversial but accurate miracles, wonders and healing. Angel is also the founder of Spirit Embassy Ministries launched in 2007 in Manchester, United Kingdom. Angel is believed to have had over 50 angelic visitations, had seen the Lord 6 times, and had been caught up into paradise once.[1]

Biography

He was born Uebert Madazanire to Mr and Mrs S K Mudzanire on the 6th September 1978. He is married to Beverly Angel Mudzanire and the couple is blessed with three children. Angel changed his surname to Angel on the basis that he was visited by angels more than 50 times.[2]

The Beginnings

Angel who had relocated to the UK and spent 13 years of his life there, came back to Zimbabwe on 12 March 2011. He argued 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). He had established the Spirit Embassy Ministries in Manchester in 2007. Angel announced that he had been called by God to return back to Zimbabwe to preach as well as to perform miracles.

Miracles

Angel had done many miracles and prophesies that had come to pass. He is said to have correctly predicted the death of the first President of Autonomous Region of Bougainville, Joseph Kabui. He is even said to have predicted the death of Michael Jckson and Margaret Thatcher as well. In 2013 he made headlines when he announced that he had resurrected 29 people.[3]

  • Miracle Money

It is this miracle that propelled Angel to stardom. He first performed the miracle in Botswana where an estimated P2,4 million was miraculous raised. The miracle money ranged from loans, airtime and cash multiplication.[4] Miracle money involved congregants having their banks account filled with money. He repeated the miracle in South Africa where hundreds of people alleged received between R20 to R100 000. The miracle courted controversy in Zimbabwe with the then Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe Gideon Gono saying 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 miracle at his church. At the press conference, Angel denied creating money but said the prophets only restores money that a congregant had lost.[5] If a congregate loses US$20, the same amount would be restored. Gono was satisfied and okayed the miracle.

  • Inducing Labour

At one point Angel came under fire from Women organisations after he had performed a miracle that led to a certain woman into labour. Angel allegedly stretched out his hands and layed them on the female congregant’s belly causing the woman to fall down and begin both labouring and breaking her waters. The woman identified as Mai Masauso, was quickly taken out by midwives who confirmed she was now 2 cm into labour.[6] 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, irons alleged came to life in an instant. To add to that a car dead for two years was restored to life.[7]

Social Responsibility

Angel had been involved in charity work since the inception of his church in 20007. Through its Adopt a Family Scheme, the less privileged families get monthly groceries in addition to having their minors school fees being paid. Angel also runs a soup kitchen for the elderly at Bako reDonhodzo in Harare's Highfield suburb Harare. He and his wife Beverly gives 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.[8] In Zambia, Beverly donated thousands worth of goods.

Angel and the Liverpool Saga

In 2013 Angel alleged prophesied that Liverpool would clinch the 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.[9] The latter had repeated a State Media paper which quoted him predicting a Liverpool win. In April he went on to predict a Chelsea win at the hands of Liverpool. He is said to have correctly prophesied even the goals and it came to pass.[10]

Relocating to UK

Angel relocated to UK during the course of 2014 and different stories emerged trying to account for Angel's relocation, abandoning his church in the country which was proving to be one of his lucrative churches. It was reported that, Angel was forced to relocate to UK fearing for his dear life after he snubbed to obey orders from senior members of the Zimbabwe African National Union Patriotic Front (ZANU PF). Reports circulated stating that Angel together with Walter Magaya and Emmanuel Makandiwa were approached by senior ZANU-PF officials to publicly denounce street demonstrations planned by Morgan Tsvangirai, leader of the Movement for Democratic Change.[11] Magaya and Makandiwa complied whilst Angel decided otherwise.[11] Hence he was forced to relocate to UK.

It was also reported that, Angel was fearing to be exposed by a delegation of pastors from Ghana who were on a mission to expose fake pastors and prophets who had emerged in Africa.[12] The delegation was reported to be in Zambia when Angel went to UK. The fact that Angel flew to UK further compounded allegations levelled against him that he used black magic to perform miracles.

In addition to the above, it was also reported that, Angel had impregnated one of his followers whom he dumped in Germany.[11] Hence, he was forced to relocate to UK to conceal his acts. This was dispelled by members of his church on the basis that their 'Major Prophet' was a victim of circumstances who was endlessly vilified ever since he came to Zimbabwe.

It was also reported that, Angel went to UK seeking treatment after he was diagnosed of a cancerous brain tumour in January 2014.[12] Due to the fact that, the tumour was now getting out of hand, Angel was forced to go to UK where they are better medical facilities. Whilst in UK, Angel stepped down as the President of Spirit Embassy and his wife assumed the post.[11]

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 his Bentley worth that amount on the basis that he was to reap more than thrice of what he had given away.[13] Shava also claimed that Angel had agreed to return the vehicle back if Shava failed to get his reward within 8 months.[13] 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.[14]

Feud with Tudor Bismark

In June 2015, Angel was caught up min 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 for 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."[15]
