Prophet deported from Botswana over 'odd' prophesies

A flamboyant  prophet Francis Sakufiwa has been deported from Botswana because of his politically inclined prophesies. President Ian Khama's government became increasingly nervous about Sakufiwa's prophesies which were getting media attention. The prophet was seen as stirring political trouble for the government. He was sent packing to Zambia last Thursday to Zambia after residing in Botswana for over 15 years.

The fate of Sakufiwa's church New Seasons Ministries which he founded was not immediately known. No reasons were given for the prophet's deportation but sources said the government wanted to send a strong message to all prophets predicting doom and chaos in the country that they will be dealt with. It saw the prophet as posing a security risk.

Assistant pastor Bunyongo yesterday told The Monitor that they learnt on Thursday that the pastor has been deported and no explanation was given. "Ask the Office of the President. We are in the dark on the matter just like you. We are also looking for answers".




Bunyongo says he has since broken the news to his church and everyone is feeling down. He denied that some church members might have reported dubious activities by the prophet to the authorities. In 2008 another flamboyant pastor, Andy Chijena of Christ Embassy was also deported to Zimbabwe after his congregation reported suspicious activities that included money laundering. Sakufiwa's church in the last two years has grown tremendously attracting the attention of media houses that gave the church's activities a wide coverage.

Once a prophet with Deeper Life Ministries, Sakufiwa later founded his own successful church after a lengthy suspension by his church in the late 90's. Sakufiwa was once married to Lorato Sakufiwa, the current director of Women's Shelter and author of the book, The Boy Child.
