Makoni blasts Prophet Makandiwa over fake miracles

CNN hero and Girl Child Founder Betty Makoni has dismissed a weight loss miracle reportedly performed by Harare prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa labelling it purely stage managed.




A miracle reportedly performed by Makandiwa showing a woman and young girl with apparently lose skirts, is just stage managed and will cause abuse of women through stigmatisation, hinted Makoni.

Said Makoni: "Weight loss is not a joke at all. In the video there is nothing one can see about weight loss," she said.

"..There is a woman in white who was coming to have her weight gone but why is it she was not picked up. My examination of the whole scene as a theatre academic is that the whole thing is stage managed. It is something staged after some good rehearsals..now this is stigmatising fat women ..from infertile women to fat women. Everything targeting women and women are the ones struck by the spirit and falling down the most. How can dress size tell weight loss Goodness this is so terrible."

Makoni was commenting on a video (insert) of Makandiwa performing the miracle sometime in 2009.

Another miracle reportedly performed on the 23rd January narrates:

Makandiwa telling believers: "I believe revival is starting today. God will begin to do what we've never seen before.

"If you're overweight and you're struggling with that, you want to lose weight, what the Holy Spirit is doing is instant. Some are going to lose 5kg, some 10kg, and some 20kg right now. Unnecessary weight on your body it is dissolving now, it's going now, it's being lifted now, I command every fat to burn, fat burn, fat burn, fat burn! I command your body to shrink, shrink, shrink! Receive a miracle now!"

Makandiwa then reportedly requested a weighing scale to be brought on stage "because we have people who lack faith" in miracles.

A woman later identified as Margaret Scubu then walked up to the stage and declared her current weight to be 110kg. With four simple words - "In Jesus' name! Touch!" - the woman falls to the ground before Makandiwa asks ushers to "pick her up".

"My skirt was tight when I came, when you prayed for me and I fell, I woke up and my skirt is loose," the woman declares to excited cheers from the congregants. She then stands on a scale which shows her weight to be 100kg.
