United Family International Church (UFIC) founder Emmanuel Makandiwa and his wife Ruth will appear before High Court Judge Justice David Mangota tomorrow (Monday) at 3pm for allegedly making fake prophecies concerning businessman and former UFIC member, Mr Upenyu Mashangwa.
In August 2017, Mashangwa and his wife, Blessing, filed a US$6,5 million lawsuit against Makandiwa over “fake prophecies”, fraud and defamation. However, Makandiwa sought exception, arguing that matters of faith could not be handled by a secular court. Makandiwa’s court appearance tomorrow involves discussions between him and Mashangwa and Justice Mangota’s determination on his exception application. The matter will go to trial if exception is denied.
