Prophet Zitha draws people to Ba-Phalaborwa
Just as Nigerian televangelist TB Joshua draws tourist to Nigeria, VC Zitha who is the Nigerian church man’s protégé is doing same to Ba-Phalaborwa.
The prophet whose church Salvation in Christ Ministries is based in the slum area of Matiko-Xikaya section of Lulekani is drawing people from all over the country who come for miraculous healing and prophecies.
During the Crossover service to 2018, the church had visitors several SADEC countries such as Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Botswana. The visitors also lined and displayed their national flags when the Prophet prayed for SADEC. The church has obviously turned the little mining town into a tourist destination. People are attracted to the church when watching Christ Media TV.
In one case recently while preaching the prophet got tormented by his anointing and stopped preaching. He asked the congregation to give and they donated a substantial sum of money. Thereafter he called one widow Granita Mndlovu whom he has not met before to him and said she is a widow and is praying and she thinks God has forsaken her. He gave her the money and said: “This is not for food, food is coming.” The woman wept because she never thought God was seeing what she was going through.
The prophet has also prayed for a family that was tormented by a tokoloshe. The tokoloshe was also bonking a 5 year old girl and her life was miserable.
But that was before the prophet prayed for her. The church is there for the widows, the homeless and the destitute. One of the pastors said: “The prophet has assisted many people and has built houses for the homeless and given food to the poor.”
The Village Voice went to see the prophet and was amazed by his humility.
He truly resembles his spiritual father TB Joshua who has financed many poor children through different universities and changed the lives of many people but remained humble.
