United Family International Church founder Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa has filed an application at the High Court claiming that business couple Upenyu and Blessing Mashangwa never paid $1.1 million in tithing and offerings. The Mashangwas are suing Makandiwa and his wife Ruth for $6,5 million claiming that they lost a fortune after being misled by Makandiwa’s false prophecies. Asking for the case to be dismissed, Makandiwa says:
Equally groundless and inconsistent with common sense is the respondents’ allegation that they made contributions to the tune of US$1,1 million into the third applicant (UFIC) as led by the first and second applicants (the Makandiwas).

…In the circumstances, it cannot be gainsaid that the allegation by the respondents to the effect that they paid US$1,1 million is a blue lie. The foregoing facts evince (indicate) that the respondents and their company were afflicted with penury (poverty) during the time they allege to have contributed or gave as tithes and offerings to the sum of US$1,1 million. The case is an annoyance and abuse of the court… The allegation made therein falls outside the region of probability and therefore ought to be dismissed.
