Following a prophesy by Emmanuel Makandiwa, the leader of the United Family International Church (UFIC) at the weekend that President Robert Mugabe would be succeeded by a Zimbabwean based abroad, sources in the church saying Makandiwa was referring to the millionaire telecoms mogul, Strive Masiyiwa.

“This person is running in the opposite direction to people, who are running towards him, I see a spider and this spider is following this person, who is the chosen one to lead the people,” he said. “He was referring to Strive (Masiyiwa)… he told those around him,” the source said. Makandiwa told congregants at the same service that Mugabe was in trouble from his treacherous advisers who were deliberately misleading
