South African based Pastor, Hastings Salanje has taken a swipe at Malawian Men of God for failing to save the life of renowned gospel musician Grace Chinga who died on Wednesday night at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital (QECH) after a short illness.
The controversial pastor who is fond of showing off his millions in public, took to the Facebook page where he openly condemned his fellow pastors of not doing enough to save the deceased.
He further added that Malawi has no trusted men of God.
“The Death of Grace Chinga is a clear indication that we are doing nothing us as Men of God. This is an attack from the devil and it could be prevented if someone was to pray for her and command her soul to come back.”
“If someone can suffer a headache in the evening and die in that same evening and be taken to the mortuary without thinking of taking a person to a certain man of God for a solution, is a clear indication that there are no trusted men of God in the land,” he said.
He then blasted his fellow men of God for focusing much on collecting tithes instead of providing solutions to small problems.
“And yet we are busy collecting tithes from people but we can’t provide solutions to small problems like this one, the whole Grace Chinga going to the Grave because of a headache like that, without no one to rescue her soul? I feel so ashamed to be called a man of God and yet we allow the devil to take people to the grave like that while we are watching.”“What are we collecting the tithes for, if we can’t provide solutions to people? Let’s stop collecting tithes until we put our house in order if we are to be serious.
“What are we collecting the tithes for, if we can’t provide solutions to people? Let’s stop collecting tithes until we put our house in order if we are to be serious.
Am saying this because I know that is possible, I remember how many people were reversed ( come back to life at the point of death) some of them gave up their ghost, but I had to refuse and bring back the person to life again.”
“This could be the same case. Anyway, Rest in peace Grace, we have failed you us as men of God,” he concluded.
The late musician was rushed to the hospital by Pastor Chris Suya only to be pronounced dead.
1 hour 30 minutes ago, I got a call that Grace Chinga is sick. Thoko and I rushed to pick her to the Hospital (QECH) and upon arrival at the Hospital Grace Chinga is pronounced dead. I feel so heavy in my spirit right now.
Musicians and other good people who live around QECH please you may rush to join me here. Am just with my wife and Grace’s mother here,” wrote Suya on his Facebook timeline.
Chinga, 37, will be buried on Saturday.
