Prophet Uebert Angel, founder and leader of the Spirit Embassy, the Good News Church was recently seen dining with EFF’s President, Julius Sello Malema, in a picture that sparked mixed emotions from followers of both men.
The highly esteemed Prophet, fondly called Emeritus, took time off his busy schedule to meet up with CIC Malema in South Africa before attending a meeting with “top (ECG) partners”
Uebert Angel was on his Good News global tour when he stopped by, in South Africa from Ivory Coast.
One might be forgiven to think that, perhaps, the politician whom some would love to hate because of not mincing his words when addressing his opponents, was taking notes from the highly esteemed Prophet whose teachings need one to be equipped not just with a Bible but a dictionary as well.
It is not an unusual occurrence to see the flamboyant Prophet mingling and supporting world leaders from across the globe. Recently, he was seen in Uganda with the Ugandan President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni where he is currently in the process of investing.
“Met Uebert Angel, a televangelist and businessman, who is founder of Spirit Embassy in the UK and Bro Ronnie Makabai of ETM International Church here in Kampala. They were accompanied by my sons Hon Thomas Tayeebwa and Balaam Barugahara. They indicated their interest to invest in tourism and pharmaceutical sectors. Government will support them,” remarked President Museveni on his Facebook page soon after the meeting.
John Anarch, a Professor at the University of Kent, speaking to M&T said, “Religion can be used as an instrument in politics. This has been a phenomenon all over, and in different political contexts. Politicians utilise religion in order to score political points. But with giants in the prophetic like Prophet Uebert Angel and Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, politicians who seek God through these men of GOD clearly have a brighter future ahead of them, as they are not carnally minded but seek divine wisdom from God.”
Uebert Angel is currently in Ilford, London for his 3 day conference dubbed, The Good News Fest.
