Prophet Magaya invades Bulawayo

BULAWAYO - Popular Prophetic Healing and Deliverance (PHD) Ministries leader Walter Magaya on Thursday descended on Bulawayo for a two-day crusade slated for Amazulu Sports Club.

The visit by Magaya will not only be his first visit to Zimbabwe’s second largest city, but will also be his first crusade outside Harare ever since he stormed into the limelight.

PHD Ministries’ spokesperson Oscar Pambuka confirmed the prophet was heading to Bulawayo.

“It’s confirmed, prophet Magaya will be in Bulawayo for a two-day crusade from tomorrow Thursday to Friday,” he said.

“The Bulawayo crusade will mark the beginning of several crusades that are going to take place in all the country’s 10 provinces.”

He said both crusades in the city will be free of charge and will commence at 5pm.

Of late, PHD Ministries has seen a surge in the number of Zimbabweans flocking to the church, seeking a breakthrough or deliverance.

The tour by the popular Harare-based prophet will come as good news to some in the city and its hinterland who had either longed to see him or had endured frequent travels to the capital either for deliverance or weekly Sunday services.

Magaya’s anointing oil, which has caused consternation, has seen many scrambling to acquire the product, with reports that it is now being sold on the black market.

Church officials say the oil is capable of unlocking all the doors of impossibilities in one’s life.

The prophet, who now commands a huge following, says Nigerian celebrity preacher TB Joshua is his spiritual father.

As part of his growing ministry, Magaya has managed to woo celebrities to his church such as sungura ace Nicholas Zakaria, dendera musician Allan Chimbetu and former Zifa chief executive officer Henrietta Rushwaya, among others.

Meanwhile lawyers representing Mr Denford Mutashu in the adultery saga involving Prophet Magaya on Wednesday said they have video recordings showing the man-of-the-cloth admitting to a relationship with their client’s wife.

Mr Norman Mugiya of Mugiya and Macharaga Law Chambers said the matter would be taken to court after Magaya failed to pay the US$500 000 damages which Mr Mutashu demanded.


Prophet Magaya is accused of dating Mr Mutashu’s wife Nomsa Ruvazhe.

In a letter of demand dated August 4, 2014 by Mr Mugiya, it is stated that Prophet Magaya was recorded admitting to the improper affair and resolving to settle the matter amicably.

Mr Mugiya said they were in possession of love text messages and a print out of mobile communication between Prophet Magaya and Ms Ruvazhe.

“Our client is in possession of video recordings where you admitted to have had an improper relationship with his wife,” wrote Mr Mugiya.

“Our client then intercepted love text messages in her (Mrs Ruvazhe’s) phone from you, Mr Walter Magaya, and our client also made a print out of the communication between yourself and our client’s wife.

“Our client also noted that the affair between yourself and his wife has been going on for sometime and we are also in possession of communication which you made with our client’s wife while in South Africa.”

The lawyers also argued that Prophet Magaya was still sending love text messages to Ms Ruvazhe despite his meeting with Mr Mutashu to resolve the matter.

“What is sad is that even after you had a meeting with our client to resolve the matter at your church premises, you are still exchanging love text messages with our client’s wife through your close associates whom you treat as counsellors at your church and also bodyguards,” read the letter.

Efforts to get a comment from Prophet Magaya were fruitless as his close associates blocked The Herald from getting his side of the story.

Mr Mugiya said Prophet Magaya failed to comply with Mr Mutashu’s demand for US$500 000, hence the matter will be taken to court.

He said trouble started when his wife went to Prophet Magaya’s church.

“We have been advised that our client’s wife one Nomsa Ruvazhe came to your church service at your church premises allegedly in an attempt to worship,” wrote Mr Mugiya to Prophet Magaya. “You ordered our client’s wife to stay at one of your lodges for three consecutive days without knowledge and consent of our client.

“Our client had to make frantic efforts to locate his wife until he located her with you where you then claimed to have been spiritually assisting her. However, from the day our client’s wife left her matrimonial home for your company, she has been aggressive and rude to her husband and she had the audacity of telling our client that she was better off with you than her lawful husband.” Daily News/The Herald
