Well known Zora musician, Leanard Zhakata, said he became a Pastor at UFIC ( Prophet Emmanuekl Makandiwa’s church) after he listened to him preaching and was totally transformed.

Zhakata says Prophet Makandiwa is a great teacher who has knowledge that surprised him and left him wondering how such a man can exist in Zimbabwe. Zhakata says being a pastor was not a choice, but a calling.

Zhakata says God asked Prophet Makandiwa to appoint him as a Pastor and all he did was accept the appointment.

Zhakata says he lost some of his followers when he became a Pastor and he was also not being booked at other venues because he is now playing mostly gospel music.

However, he says this does not bother him as this is natural.
