Controversial and flamboyant preacher Prophet Uebert Angel from Zimbabwe claims to have foretold the Kenya shopping mall terrorist attack in Kenya which claimed the lives of over 72 people. A video released by Angel’s Spirit Embassy church claims he predicted the massacre over a year ago.
The church claims Angel repeated the prophecy on two more occasions.
“This is an open space… like you can go there and do your market there, and this is a bomb coming up there,” the charismatic preacher says in the video. Angel warned that the attack was inevitable, and “we can’t stop it”.
Prophet Angel returned to the prophecy on June 30 this year, during another Sunday service televised around the continent on his Miracle TV.
“We need to really pray for Kenya,” he said. “There’s a lot of progress happening in Kenya, but this is a small group that decided the Christian community is going up too much, let’s kill some people. I saw even police, an authority where even guards are there, and they’re bombing.”
On July 21, in his final prophecy, Angel said: “Remember the Kenya prophecy? These are days closing, they’re coming close, and coming close.
“It is very open, it’s like in the open like that. It’s not even something that is far away from the people, it’s just there. To say how did they get in there, no-one knows. Some of them even using home-made material, not nice ones. You know a situation where people make these small things and they have got spikes, but it’s explosive.”
Angel then told his church “we’re starting to pray Wednesday going forward, then we end on the 21st…”
On September 21, Somali Islamist militant group Al Shabaab gunmen lobbing grenades and firing assault rifles inside Nairobi’s Westgate Mall launched their assault. Its leader threatened Kenya with “long-lasting war, blood, destruction” over its peacekeeping role in neighbouring Somalia.
Ahmed Godane, who is also known as Mukhtar Abu al-Zubayr, confirmed that his al Shabaab network was behind Saturday’s armed rampage and hostage siege at the Westgate complex in Nairobi. His threat, posted online late Wednesday, came as more burial services were held for victims of the attack.
Meanwhile it’s not the first time Prophet Angel has claimed to have foretold massacres or deaths.
Last year in December Prophet Angel claimed to have foretold the Connecticut shooting in the United States after twenty children and six adults died when gunman Adam Lanza rampaged through a primary school in Newtown, Connecticut, firing a semi-automatic rifle before killing himself.
Prophet Angel also claimed to have predicted the death of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, Manchester United beating Stoke City in the English Premiership and that the Red Devils would also win the league title.
