Woman dies, rises again in church



Kanye woman, Hilda Modikwe could not stop crying last Sunday before the church when she narrated how her prophet resurrected her from the dead. According to the mother of three, Prophet Keletso Moenda of Be Free Christian Church in Gaborone was sent by God to deliver her and her family from the spirit of death that was tormenting them. She testified that when she came to church on August 13, the prophet picked her and told her that there are unending cases of death in her family, which she confirmed to be true. He also told her that she had a heart condition, which she also said was true.

She states that the man of God said she was going to have a mild stroke. “He said I was next on the line to die in my family, and said however, that it is well and that the Lord will not allow it to happen,” she says. During the three weeks, she said she was unsettled and had sleepless nights as she was worried about her children. “I was already thinking about dividing my properties among them and other things,” she said. When she went to see the doctor, she says, the doctor told her the other side of her heart was not functioning well, which she states confirmed what the prophet had told her.

As she pointed at her left eye that was swelling, she said it was a sign that she was going to have a mild stroke as she could feel the other signs. “My heart was pumping fast and it felt like it was going to stop functioning altogether,” she says. She adds that she had been using the anointed Water of Promise from church. Death and resurrection in church Speaking to The Midweek Sun, Prophet Moenda says when Modikwe came to church, he could see the spirit of death and he told her about it.

“She confirmed it and said other men of God have told her about it before,” he says, adding that the woman had suffered mild stroke. He would then pray for her. Now when she came to church the following Sunday, the prophet says he saw her dying in front of him and the church. “Right in my eyes, she died. In front of believers and non-believers. I know satan wanted to disgrace me to test whether I’m a true man of God,” he states, recalling that he was preaching on Prophets are God-directed, covered and forgiven, as his message.

“As I was preaching, I saw her collapse. She was motionless and I saw her brother and daughter crying uncontrollably. None of her body parts was functioning and her tongue had come out,” he says. The prophet says the spirit of the Lord led him to her and he saw that the woman was dead. But how did he know that she was dead? “I don’t need to be a doctor to know that. I was directed by the spirit of the Lord as his prophet,” he explains, citing John 14:12, Philippians 4:13 and John 11 to show the power that Christians have. He says that as he sprinkled her with the Water of Promise, water started coming out of her mouth. He says it was the first time his faith in God got to be tested like that.

“I started to raise my hands to the heavens and prayed resurrection scriptures,” he says, adding that it took him close to 30 minutes. Meanwhile, Modikwe’s brother wanted to take her to the hospital as he had lost hope. The whole church was crying. Prophet says Modikwe then rose up, rolled up on the floor and the whole church started glorifying God and giving him thanks. According to Moenda, it was God who rose Modikwe from death. “I’m just a vessel, the glory belongs to God. Victory belongs to him,” he says.A church member says the incident strengthened their faith in God.

“With God, all things are possible,” he says. The church media team has recorded video of the incident. From a traffic officer to prophet Narrating how God called him, 34 year-old Moenda from Ramotswa says he worked as a traffic officer for eight years and he was based in Borakanelo Police Station. Though his mother says there were miraculous circumstances surrounding his birth like other prophets, he says he understood his calling from 2013 and registered the church. “From primary school levels, I used to see myself fighting spiritual animals and defeating them,” he says.

He explains that he grew up as an isolated and quiet child. In 2013, he attended Prophet Shepherd Bushiri’s crusade in Gaborone and he prophesied about his calling as a prophet. The following year he visited Prophet T.B. Joshua’s church in Nigeria. Prior to starting a church, he was a member of a local Zion Christian Church. He is married with two children.

VACANCY: President of the UDC



Botswana Movement for Democracy (BMD) President, Advocate Sidney Pilane says Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) does not have a President.

He revealed this week that UDC leader, Advocate Duma Boko was given the leadership of the coalition on a temporary arrangement. Advocate Pilane who was addressing the media this week, following the expulsion of his party from the UDC stated that in the buildup to 2014 general elections it was agreed that Advocate Boko should be presidential candidate for UDC, an arrangement that ended at the time when the UDC lost the 2014 general elections.

“It was decided that Botswana National Front (BNF) should be given the presidency so that Advocate Boko could be our presidential candidate. The late Gomolemo Motswaledi of BMD was to be his running mate. We made this arrangement in preparation to taking over state power.

So, all that has passed, we contested and lost so it is all in the past,” said the BMD leader. He stated that constitutionally, the UDC has no president because the president has to be elected during the UDC elective congress. Advocate Pilane pointed out that UDC according to the Constitution should hold its congress every three (3) years.

He stated that even all the members of UDC National Executive Committee have to be elected at the congress and as it stands, “there is no president or Vice Presidents because they were not voted into those positions.”

Advocate Pilane said instead of building the UDC brand their colleagues at Botswana Congress Party (BCP) and Botswana National Front have resorted to petty issues. He told the media that the leadership of the two parties have taught their members to insult BMD leadership and its members on social media and any other forum.

He had no kind words for the BCP, calling the party a divisive party that thrives on insults and divisive tendencies. He said the BCP leadership had encouraged its foot soldiers to use social media to insult him and members of the BMD.

According to Advocate Pilane, these are some of the things that have made the two parties remain in opposition for far too long without even coming close to toppling the ruling party. He described them as dishonest people who will plunge the country into chaos and that is why Batswana do not want to give them power.

VIDEO: A Gaborone hotel Prophet caught in the act

Yvonne Mooka



In a matter that closely resembles that of a South African Cabinet Minister, Melusi Gigaba’s masturbating video clip, a visiting Zimbabwean Prophet, Ronald El Melchizedek of Altar of Grace this week denied that he has been sending nudes to church sisters and demanding same from them.

In fact, the ‘man of God’ has earned himself the name, ‘Botswana’s Omotoso’ by girls that allege he has sexually exploited them. Pastor Timothy Omotoso is a Nigerian clergyman accused of sexually exploiting over 30 young girls from his church in South Africa.

“He is an Omotoso and even though they hide it at his church, some of us have received messages from him asking for our nudes. Actually, he has asked for my nudes several times,” says one church sister.

The Midweek Sun has gotten hold of a 34 seconds video clip of the youthful prophet playing with his manhood. Looking like he is in a hotel room, the man stands fully naked in a muted video that, depicts him speaking and teasing the recipient. In a standing position, he starts off by caressing his manhood, giving it a close up and ends up lying on the bed, facing up.

At least three young women say they received the video from the prophet and that he usually asks for nudes from them. One of them actually says he has been pestering her, demanding to have sex with her. “He likes to send me messages of how horny he is for me. But again, he likes asking for nudes from women.

Even married women at his church have fallen victims of his sexual harassment. I left the church because he disgusted me by doing such things yet calling himself a man of God,” she says.

The woman however says that Melchizedek, a Zimbabwean who holds services at Gaborone Hotel when he is in the country, is a man of accurate prophecies. “He moves mightily in the prophetic but he likes harassing church sisters. It is known in his church. He is married but controlled by the spirit of lust,” she says.

The Prophet responds
Melchidezek told The Midweek Sun that he was aware of the video of him doing the rounds through WhatsApp, but was quick to label the whole thing a scam.“Yes we are aware. Those are scammers from Benin who hacked into my wife’s Facebook account and phone and stole our videos and pictures. So they wanted to blackmail us and we refused, that is why they are doing that.

It is just an effort to harm the work of God but God is in control,” he told The Midweek Sun. He would not be drawn into responding to, or even discussing the allegations levelled against him by church sisters, but instead gave this reporter a mobile number of a person he said was his wife.

The said woman confirmed that the video was posted by scammers. “That was done by scammers. We have reported them to Benin police,” she said. She however would not give the name of the police station nor go into further details.

This incident follows on last week’s revelations reported by this publication, where several girls spoke anonymously about pastors, prophets and ‘men of God’who were using them sexually in church. Many were uncomfortable to reveal their names, forcing this paper to also conceal the identies of the accused churches and pastors involved in the dirty acts in the name of God.
