United Family International Church leader Emmanuel Makandiwa allegedly told his congregants that the One Million Man March was a precursor to a larger gathering whose results, however, would signal Robert Mugabe’s downfall.
In a video reportedly recorded in May 2016, three days before the then Kudzi Chipanga-led Zanu-PF youth league million man march, Makandiwa said if the party knew what would be triggered by the march they would cancel it. Said Makandiwa:
I am not going to say the forthcoming one-million man march is a prophesy because it’s already out there in the public. But what I can tell you, what you don’t understand is what is going to be triggered by the march. You cannot lie to me that you know because if you knew what will be triggered you would cancel it. Yes, yes; if you look at how it is arranged and planned, it’s a very good move; they have good reasons for that, but you see, if you really want to proceed. I know people will talk, but I am saying you have to do your homework before the march. It will go as planned, but it will be an activity which has opened certain doors. You have made it possible in the minds of people that they can regroup and do something of a same nature in a different direction. They have seen that it’s possible. You are doing it in a good sense, but you have allowed children to test the honey and they will come for the same. It’s a test of the waters of what will come.
