Blessing and Upenyu Mashangwa, the Harare couple suing United Family International Church (Ufic) founder, Emmanuel Makandiwa has also been sued by its own lawyer over failure to pay back $800 000. The Mushangwas are claiming that Makandiwa made a false prophecy saying that their debt would be cancelled which resulted in them losing their house after it was attached and sold for $500 000 instead of $700 000. The couple is demanding $200 000 from Makandiwa.
Lawyer Jemina Gumbo is demanding $800 000 from the Mushangwas saying she bought the same property in 2012. Gumbo says the Mushangwas cancelled the sale arguing that they did not receive payment from McDowells International Properties Investment.
The Mushangwas then allegedly agreed to refund Gumbo’s money if she helped them win the civil lawsuit against McDowell’s, which they did. Gumbo said the couple has since stopped communicating with her after they won the lawsuit.
