Speaking to congregants, United Family International Church founder Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa said Zimbabwe must not borrow money but machinery.
He said borrowing money will not bring solutions to current economic challenges. Said Makandiwa:
Don’t borrow money, borrow vessels (machinery). On your next trip, don’t borrow money, but vessels. You think if you bring in $10 billion it will bring solutions? Even if you get $100 billion you will never be free. We have been allowed by God to borrow, but it is not money. Also can’t you see that in the area of money there are so many restrictions? Even before you leave the country they know you want to borrow money.
Makandiwa was referring to a story in 2 Kings 4 where Prophet Elisha asked a widow who could not pay her debts and was about to lose her two sons, to borrow vessels from her neighbours which were then filled with oil. Said Makandiwa:
We can then mix the machinery with our oil. I am not an economist, but I hear from God and I see. Zimbabwe does not need money. There is a place in our economy and Jesus is touching that. Stop crying, and stop complaining. Don’t be afraid, Jesus is working out something for us. This is a passing storm.
