NORTHMEAD Assemblies of God overseer Joshua Banda has castigated South African-based Malawian self-styled prophet Sheppard Bushiri for predicting war and bloodshed in Zambia.
Bishop Banda said it was absurd for a man calling himself prophet to only be interested in speaking doom about other countries leaving out real issues in the country of his origin.
“We reject and reverse words of doom over Zambia and I would like to advise Zambians not to be unsettled as our country is under a spiritual covering of the Lord Jesus Christ, as written in Isaiah 60:18 ” Bishop Banda said.
Prophet Bushiri recently posted on the internet his prophecy over Zambia that he was seeing a wall that represented Zambia and a big crack in that wall which eventually collapsed and killed a lot of people.
According to his interpretation, the crack in the wall represented civil war in the country that would eventually claim many lives.
Bishop Banda said it was not the first time foreign men of God were predicting doom over Zambia but because of the good stance the country and its leadership had taken in God, all the foretold doom never came to pass.
“So these words should be rejected by every Zambian as we the prophets of Zambia have not seen anything in those lines,” he said.
Meanwhile the DNA Zambia has appealed for calm and peace among political players especially during the lawful incarceration of opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema so as to prove the false prophets wrong.
DNA Zambia spokesperson Spuki Mulemwa said cautioned especially the United Party for National Development (UPND) supporters to respect the law and exercise maximum restraint to avoid any confusion.
He also rubbished prophet Bushiri’s prophecy over Zambia describing it at a cheap opportunistic move to earn self glorification.
