A Born Again Christian Prophet Causes Deaths of Twenty People in Miracle Performance in Northern Tanzania[1],[2]

It has been reported that twenty people died on the spot while the other nineteen left in critical condition. this happened on the 1st of February 2020 in a northern town of Moshi in the Kilimanjaro region, Tanzania. On that day, a crowd of people scrambled to enter into the stadium, where the miracle performer famous as prophet and apostle, Boniface Mwamposa, nicknamed as the ‘bulldozer,’ and based in Dar es salaam was continuing with his prayers and miracle performance in a stadium. He was telling people to walk through the anointed oil, so that they can be cured of diseases and sufferings, be saved from poverty, get married, have employment, have success in business, be rich, and have deliverance from the bondage of satan and the power of darkness. That famous prophet is also selling water, tons and tons of bottles, to people, so that they could use them for drinking, washing, and taking birth believing that they will be blessed and protected from the devil through the “blessed” water he is selling.

Statement from the minister of home affairs of Tanzania, Honorable George Simbachawene, who is also in charge of the police force in Tanzania, said that twenty people died on the spot during the event and another nineteen people are in critical condition. The minister also said that after the event the prophet tried to escape, but the police apprehended him in Dar es Salaam where he was preparing himself to run away to an unknown place. The minister warned all born again Christian churches and Christian miracle performers prophets not to raise emotions to the people on their prayers because, sometimes, it may cause dangers like what has happened, recently.

However, views from common citizens do throw the blame on the government for not taking care of leaving these born again churches and Christian prophets/miracle performers to continue lying to people. When problems arise, it is when the government wakes up from the slumber and comes out with strong statements. Citizens have warned that proper screening is to be done before someone is allowed to conduct religious services, so as to prevent further injuries like this.

Prophet and apostle Mwamposa is leading the church called “Inuka Uangaze” – Swahili for “stand up and be the light.” The church is headquartered in Dar es salaam, Tanzania.
