Controversial Malawian ‘prophet’ Austin Liabunya says he faces regular death threats after proclaiming that Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe would die in 2015.
In a statement published on his website on Tuesday, Liabunya, however, remained defiant and said he was not afraid of the threats.
“Threats will not work but rather will speed up the prophecy and make things worse before time,” Liabunya said.
On January 1, during a ‘crossover service’, Liabunya said “Mugabe’s biological clock will not tick beyond this year”, after which Zimbabwe will be “restored” to be in the top five of the richest countries in Africa.
Liabunya said Mugabe’s wife Grace Mugabe “will never win in Zimbabwe’s politics” and had jumped onto the political bandwagon to “protect her ill-gotten wealth”.
Liabunya said he had received death threats but did not disclose who exactly had issued them. The Zimbabwean state media, which is Mugabe’s mouthpiece, railed against Liabunya, describing him as a ‘prophet of doom’.
However, the Winning Life Ministries leader said he had not asked God to kill Mugabe or bring calamity on anyone but was a ‘watchman’ who showed people what God was about to do so that they would not “walk in darkness”.
“And I’m always obedient to God that I give you the prophecies complete; ‘if you do this, that will not happen but if you dont do this that will happen’, thats God speaking and giving you the opportunity of choice,” Liabunya said.
