HARARE- Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa on Tuesday caused drama at the up market ZIMOCO motor showroom in the capital when he sneaked out through the back door and left his body guards to threaten journalists who were trying to take pictures of him checking out the latest Mercedes Benz vehicle.
According to a report by the Radio VOP website Makandiwa arrived at the motor showroom in a Lexus 570 model with his wife and three body guards. Within minutes the youthful pastor was spotted by journalists in the showroom while admiring a Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Base GL350 BlueTEC 4dr AWD 4MATIC.
His body guards quickly rushed to block the entrance to stop the journalists from getting in and taking pictures of the ‘prophet’ admiring the top of the range Mercedes vehicle which costs at least US$70 000.
“Please we are not going to allow you take him photos because by doing so you will be invading his privacy. You should respect his privacy because he is doing private business,” said the body guards.
“No pictures in our showroom you can wait for him outside,” shouted a ZIMOCO showroom staff. Seeing the commotion, Makandiwa sneaked out of the showroom through the back door and drove off.
Pastor Makandiwa is the founder of United Family Interdenominational Church (UFIC). Two weeks ago Nehanda Radio.com reported how his wife Ruth Makandiwa was ‘honoured’ by the church with a Mercedes Benz S500 Brabus worth between $150 000 and $220 000 for Mothers Day.
