Controversial cleric, Prophet Passion Java has stirred a hornets’ nest following a hunger jest he pulled in a circulating video in which he made fun of people in poverty.
Passion who recently acquired a helicopter captured himself saying “Vaswera nenzara, vamwe tatenga helicopter (They spent the whole day without food while we bought a helicopter).”
The video provoked Zimbabweans online into an offensive mode raising already existing queries around the flamboyant preacher’s lifestyle prior to his spiritual role.
“Ndiprophet prophet kana kuti izita reZimdancehall? I’m confused hanzi maswera nenzara ??♂️ zvakaoma hazvo(Is he a true prophet or the title “prophet” is his Zimdancehall stage name),” commented a bitter Instagram user.
“Pakuzoti vamwe vaswera nenzara uumm doesn’t the Bible that he preaches rebukes mocking the less privileged, does it not rebuke the rich that value their positions…. I’m not against him neither am I judging but what I know in everything we do God has a final say(how does a man of God make fun of the poor, doesn’t the Bible rebuke the rich who value their possessions),” commented another user.
Another section did not see any problem with the cleric’s actions.
“MaZimba ane godo vakomana kuita kuputirwa negodo,iwe kana uchiti Prophet Passion vakatenga helicopter memari yetithe,try it iwewe tione uakaitenga…maZimba tinotambura because we do not celebrate the success of other people. Ukunyora ipapa uchiti arikudya mari dzevanyu asi its clear kuti haana kudya yako,_so what’s your problem?” commented someone in the cleric’s defense.
Passion is not strange to controversial statements, last year he left tongues wagging after he was again captured in a video using street lingo vulgar word, Stonyeni, used to describe sex.
