Intelligence operatives of the Zambian Government have accused Uebert Angel of pouring millions into the opposition political party.

Multimillionaire prophet and leader of the Good News Church, Uebert Angel was sucked into a political scuffle as the Zambian government accused him of funding the opposition party lead by Hakainde Hichilema.

Mr Hichilema, an economist and wealthy businessman, was detained last month after he was jointly charged and arrested with five others with treason. This was after an incident involving the motorcade as it passed through Mongu, 500km west of the capital Lusaka.

Sources close to Prophet Angel say he was issued with a visa, however, the government operatives who met him at the airport listed a number of unreasonable conditions for him to follow should he opt to go into the country. But Uebert Angel refused to comply and he chose not to go into Zambia.

Sources who spoke to Onward Christian Radio on conditions of anonminy said " Angel is being accused of pouring millions into the opposition leader's campaign and that information didn't sit well with the president."

However, source in the prophet's camp vehemently say it's fiction

"Angel doesn't know anything about the opposing leader in fact he has never met or seen Hichilema." Said our source.

Speaking to Onward Christian Radio, Rikki Doolan the spokesperson for TGNC said, Prophet Uebert Angel is an apolitical leader, he is a Christian leader not aligned to any political party but God.

What I can assure you is that the conferences that were penciled in for Friday the 5th and Saturday 6th will still go ahead as planned and prophet Uebert Angel will be live, he will lead the conferences as planned no one can stop the work of God not even a government." Said Rikki Doolan.
