Wealthy United Family International Church founder Emmanuel Makandiwa has topped an authoritative list of the 50 most influential young Zimbabweans for 2014.
The Zimbabwe Research Institute survey listed the philanthropist and public speaker ahead of Nandos-style Chicken Slice fast food chain founder Tawanda Mutyebere.
Makandiwa, a former AFM pastor in Chitungwiza, is considered one of the so-called ‘flamboyant prophets’, a rich gang of prosperity preachers with close ties to the government of Robert Mugabe.
Makandiwa’s friend and close colleague, Uebert Angel Mudzanire is facing allegations that he defrauded a Harare man of a $300 000 Bentley, promising him supernatural financial blessings soon after donating the car to Angel, who lives in Manchester, UK. The riches never came and the man wants the ‘man of God’ to return his lot.
