‘Prosperity, miracle prophets’ banned in Zimbabwe



Zimbabwe’s state broadcaster has banned programmes by “prosperity prophets”.

Albert Chekayi, Head of radio at Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) said the temporary suspension was as a result listeners’ complaints. 

He said such broadcasts will be investigated.

Prosperity prophets preach about the “prosperity gospel”, which links wealth to Christianity.

They say the stronger one’s faith and the more one gives to the church, the more wealth one will ultimately receive from God. Such clerics have been criticized for making money out of poor people.
