Magaya Birthday Dinner Sparks Controversy; Only the Rich Invited

Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries founder Walter Magaya on Saturday hosted a dinner for hundreds of paying company executives to celebrate his 39th birthday.
Smarting from the recent deaths of 11 followers when police teargas triggered a mass stampede at his crusade in Kwe Kwe, Magaya chose the highly secured, upmarket Zimbali conference centre in leafy Greendale for his birthday bash.
This immediately drew the ire of poorer church members who accused him of forgetting his ghetto roots and trying to impress ‘sinners’ in order to get to their pockets.
“Magaya should have celebrated among the believers, not mixing with gluttonous rich sinners and playing worldly music from Oliver Mtukudzi. It doesn’t set a good example,” said one church elder.
The former Chitungwiza thug transformed ‘miraculously’ after visiting TB Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations in Nigeria in 2012. He started his ministry at a creche in Unit L, Chitungwiza before moving to Waterfalls after curiously obtaining a grant from the department of theology in the president’s office.
Saturday’s event was sponsored by top companies, among them telecommunications giant Telecel, BancABC and state broadcaster Star FM. Even the bankrupt ZBC chipped in with a donation to be part of the event.
Magaya arrived separately from his wife, who turned up in a gorgeous lacy green gown. Arriving minutes later in a beige suit, Magaya had small talk with the mainly dark-suited executives before feasting got underway.
Magaya has courted controversy ever since his ministry began. He famously got mixed up with strip dancer Beverly Sibanda before being accused of committing adultery with Denford Mutashu’s wife, Memory Ruvazhe.
He recently torched a storm by claiming the Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe was “chosen by God”.

    Jesus was also accused of dinning with sinners, publicans and tax collectors. In response to that he made it very clear that it is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. “I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” (Ref. Mark 2 v 13-17).

    Charlie I don’t think you were even at the venue, everything that you have wrote shows that there is bitterness in you Mr..I’m so proud to say that the dinner birthday bash was worth it especially regarding my company.. I learnt a lot from Prophet Magaya during question and answer session.`izvo zvaana Bev nezvimwewo zvazvako wena isu we were so blessed. Wish PHD Ministries will always organise such events.

    Firstly, those who were at magaya had to pay for the dinner and even you were invited its just that you ddnt have money. Besides being a prophet magaya is a businness tycoon. Point of correction, magaya came in with his wife he was wearing a grey suit and his wife a turqoise blue costume not a are saying this nasty things because you were not even around at e event. If you were ther you would have given clear facts

    Who on this forum can claim that his/her past life was clean and straight forward through and through. Whether it is true that this prophet was a thug before izvozvo ndizvo zvinoratidza simba ra Mwari. Apostle Paul was a murderer, Rahab was a prostitute, Jacob was a cheater but they were all used mightly by God in their own way. No-one is beyond redemption. Mucharamba makabatirira zvakare when God is doing a new thing using this man. Ndati ndiani pano anoti ini handina chitadzo. The same question was asked kune vaye who were accusing the woman who was caught in adultery. Mweya wechi Pharise nechi Sadduce ngaubude muvanhu.
