Makandiwa accuser Tinashe Mutamiri says he was never served with proper papers to go and defend himself against the fake prophet.
Mutarimi said poor Makandiwa finally approached the courts with his tail between the legs seeking redemption as he fails to handle the heat and pressure of the Enlightenment Series.
This comes after a South African court ordered Mutarimi to retract defamatory statements he published online against United Family International Church (UFIC) leader Emmanuel Makandiwa’s pastor.
Makandiwa’s pastor, Donald Mhandu, who is the applicant, approached the Gauteng High Court on November 9, seeking an interdict to bar Tinashe Exevier Mutamiri, a Zimbabwean based in South Africa, from repeating the defamatory statements he published against him on social media.
Through his lawyer Henk Horn, Mhandu sought an order to compel Mutamiri to delete the defamatory posts on Facebook and other social media platforms.
Posting on facebook, Mutarimi said If Makandiwa’s pastor is a true man of God he wouldn’t rush to court to file a court application against allegations based on doctrine and his brutality. When people accused Jesus of many things he did not go to report to the authorities that people are accusing him of falsehood.
“If they are real prophets and true servants of God they must leave doctrinal matters solved spiritually. It pauses a lot of questions in regard to the prophetic powers they claim to have. Makandiwa should have used this as an opportunity to show the world his powers and spiritual strength and well-being. To run to block a social media post or video shows how desperate Makandiwa has become.
Judge Justice Neukircher granted Mhandu’s application and ordered Mutamiri to remove all the videos he posted against the pastor and also to delete all the comments made in response to his posts by November 18, 2021.
Mutamiri was also ordered to retract his statements and apologise to Mhandu in a video, which he should post on the same social media platform he used while defaming him.
“The respondent is ordered to forthwith remove and delete any and all posts whatsoever that have been published by the respondent on the Internet and to remove and delete all and any posts and comments made in response thereto in so far as it is within their power to do so by 18 November 2021,” the judge said in her statement.
