Zimbabwe once again was made to look for ear buds to clean their ears after being infected by the blubber and fake prophet Talent Chiwenga. The era of fake prophets who hide behind the name of God to attack the national leadership and extort money from the public is being ushered as Zimbabwe has seen the advent of these small devils holding the bible. The chief Satan and a man who lives on rituals where he kills at least three people a year. This devil has visited Zimbabwe in the person of Talent Chiwenga a self proclaimed prophet. He said people should now unite and work towards a Zimbabwe desired by all citizens.

Apostle Talent Chiwenga is a controversial street preacher who has a strong belief that he is the only one correct and everyone else is wrong. He believes that he is the mouth piece of God and that his word comes from God at least that is what his followers believe. He is known to have a passion for insulting anyone and everyone. He lacks diplomacy and is known for rebuking church members in church while he is beaming their photo on the screen. He is a novice who has mental health issues which he displays during his sermons. Surprisingly his followers are gripped in the net of insanity and always urge him on as he attacks the government every day.

Those who have listened to his preaching do accept that he has some knowledge of the bible but he misses a lot of interpretation. Apostle Chiwenga has unexplainable obsession with Vice President Chiwenga who is his cousin brother. He does not mince his words and he will insult the vice president at any time he gets to do so. He has no respect for his brother who is the Vice President of the country. Talent Chiwenga has no respect for anyone and in his stubbornness he has become a liability. He again has become a renowned enemy of another Preacher Prophet Makandiwa. Talent Chiwenga's beef with prophet Makandiwa is not known. Chiwenga hates Makandiwa with a passion.

'Apostle' Thomas Chiwenga is a Harare street preacher and the founder of Apostle T.F Chiwenga Ministries.

In the streets of Harare we have seen Talent Chiwenga using religion as a political prop and he is exercising his prophetic voice to insult the leaders.

Talent Chiwenga infamously congest first street so he could use the bible as a launch pad for his noise and insults he directs towards the government and as a photo backdrop and turning it into a political prop at the expense of the good people who congregate around him.

The crassness of this political acting is so transparent to all but the fake Apostle Chiwenga, who is used to fire obscenities and giving blessings to obsequious clerics who he has personally appointed. If this were done in America it would be denounced by the U.S. State Department as a violation of human rights and religious freedom.

Meanwhile, many of the congregates who had been pushing around in first street were responding to the prophetic call of their imposter and fake religious leader Talent Chiwenga. Chiwenga denounced the government as a sinful outfit and police control of violence, condemned as an assault on the life and human dignity of God's children.

Religion and politics have been locked in relationship since the dawn of humanity. Sometimes that relationship is healthy and sometimes it's exploitative. Working together in a positive way, the two forces have created community and fostered the common good. With the blessing of God political leaders could rule without brute force. With the help of political leaders, great temples and works of art were created that enriched the religious and cultural life of the community.

Conflict between the religious and political leaders could also be healthy. Before there were elections, independent courts and the rule of law, religion often provided the only check on political power. There was a higher law than the law of the king, and the prophet could challenge the despot with the voice of God. But Talent Chiwenga is bringing in a new religion of playing politics hiding behind the bible.

It has become clear that Talent Chiwenga is systemically setting himself up to contest as a president of Zimbabwe. He is simply using the bible as vehicle to lift him to the position he is aiming for. While many would want to dismiss him as a time waster Talent Chiwenga is using his partial insanity to his advantage.

His congregation praises him as he insults the leaders and other clerics. He insults even his own members and every body and everyone. Talent Chiwenga is not of God. The bible is very clear in Mathew 5:22 "But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!' will be liable to the hell of fire."

So which spirit is Talent Chiwenga using when he insults his leaders and his own brother. God did not teach people to solve their issues by insulting one another in public. In James 4;11-12 the bible clearly contradicts Talent Chiwenga. It says "Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?" But Chiwenga does not know that those he insults on the pulpit are the children of the same God. They have read Proverbs 12:16 Which says "The vexation of a fool is known at once, but the prudent ignores an insult."

So people ignore his insults being persuaded by the above verse which Talent Chiwenga in his foul language missed. There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.

Talent Chiwenga must read the book of Ephesians 4:31-32 which says "Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you."

One must remind Talent Chiwenga that Proverbs 11:11 Says. "Whoever belittles his neighbor lacks sense, but a man of understanding remains silent." While Chiwenga plays the devil and dares the government to kill him he must read Proverbs 20:22. Which the leaders in the government have read "Do not say, "I will repay evil"; wait for the Lord, and he will deliver you."

For the lunatic Chiwenga Romans 14:10-12 will help him. It clearly say. "Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God; for it is written, "As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God." So then each of us will give an account of himself to God."

In a twist of things the Zimbabwe government is being persecuted by Talent Chiwenga. Mathew 5:43 reads "You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust." We urge the Zimbabweans to ignore this false prophet from hell who believes that he knows everything. The bible is clear and in Proverbs 10:12 it tells Chiwenga that "Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses."

Talent Chiwenga who believes that he is the only holy person the know it all and the one who always challenge people to a debate. Talent Chiwenga who believes that he is holy and has no seen let him read ROMANS 3:23 "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God," On the other hand, God uses rulers sometimes to be the only ones powerful enough to reform religious institutions that had become corrupt. The group founded by Talent Chiwenga is an embarrassment to the Christian community. Christians are not judges of their brothers. Over the course of history, prophets and reformers have only succeeded when the people supported them. Talent Chiwenga is trying to burst into the political scene using God's word and abusing the bible.

Talent Chiwenga is a cut out from the Devils underpants. He is the obscene face of the Devil holding the bible. Instead of preaching about heaven he dedicates God's time to insult government leaders church leaders. He insults the nation at large and brings his village fights into the national domain. Chiwenga has a hatrade against his brother Constantine Chiwenga.

But when religion and politics were in an incestuous relationship, religion turned rulers into gods and political leaders corrupted religious leaders with wealth and gave them power to impose religious beliefs on unbelievers. The system was that the politicians turn to church but not in Talent Chiwenga's world. He is turning the church into a political fight. Chiwenga is using his faithfuls he has his eyes set on a high political position. He is encouraged by pastor Chakwera who has become the president of Malawi. He is encouraged by Bishop Muzorewa who became a Prime-minister of Zimbabwe Rhodesia. Chiwenga is encouraged by Desmond Tutu the Bishop from South Africa. The difference is that all those he is drawing his motivation were of sound mind. Talent Chiwenga is of unstable mind and he is felling in his dreams. Temples and churches are no longer houses of God but monuments to clerical power and privilege.

The history of Zimbabwe has seen these themes play out. Political and religious leaders supported regime change agenda in an incestuous relationship where religious institutions even provided funding to political opposition leaders. On Zimbabwe's soil, religion too often became part of the establishment and turned against new dispensation whether Catholic or Protestant. Too often religion stood on the side of the regime change agenda and Talent Chiwenga is fighting for recognition in this ploy. Talent Chiwenga who has killed over six people in ritual accidents including his wife wishes to It frequently use his new found political influence to protect criminal clergy and hush up scandals. Talent Chiwenga is trying to impose his views about human behavior long after he had lost the support of the public.

Religion can be a political prop or a prophetic voice. History should teach religious leaders not to get in bed with political leaders. Religious and political leaders can work together for the common good, but they should be enriching the community, not each other. A prophet can speak courageously about issues, but when he starts endorsing political parties and candidates, he is no longer speaking for God.

When a preacher talks of his self righteousness then pride has taken over and he has taken a dip in the pool of confusion.

Talent Chiwenga is not a true prophet. He is a politician who is trying to gain traction by abusing the word of God. By believing that he is the only one right and everybody is wrong Talent Chiwenga has exposed his lunacy. He is a Lunatic and indeed needs help.
