South African-based Zimbabwean televangelist Jay Israel has said President Emmerson Mnangagwa will win the upcoming elections by a huge margin.
The 30-year-old Bulawayo-born preacher also said there will be “serious friction” within the opposition Citizens’ Coalition for Change led by Nelson Chamisa.
The Sunday News quoted Israel as saying that if President Mnangagwa does not win the presidential elections, he was ready to have his head cut off. He said:
I have a message for the nation of Zimbabwe. I have received a prophecy about the upcoming election.
The message is clear, President Emmerson Mnangagwa is going to win the next elections resoundingly.
And let me hasten to say any prophet who is going to prophesy today that the opposition will win the elections, that person should be dismissed as a liar.
God has already blessed President Mnangagwa with another term in office.
I have also been shown that as we head towards elections there will be serious friction within the opposition led by Nelson Chamisa.
Disagreements over a number of issues will arise which will lead to a near split.
Due to the internal friction, some opposition members will join the ruling party before and after the elections.
… if President Mnangagwa does not win the presidential elections, it means I am a liar and they must come and cut off my head.
Israel reportedly dropped out of school because of financial challenges when he was in Form Two at Pumula High School in Bulawayo.
At the age of 18, he reportedly moved to Harare where he later formed his own church, Palace of Glory.
In 2014, Isreal migrated to South Africa where he has been leading the Spirit Life Church.
