“Emmanuel Nyirongo punished for being a fake prophet” – Readers

Prophet Emmanuel Nyirongo

Following the death of prominent Kitwe man of God, prophet Emmanuel Nyirongo yesterday, some people have described his death as a punishment for being a fake prophet.

Among his prominent miracles, prophet Nyirongo  turned water into paraffin and transferred K50 worth of air time to one of his church members during a church service.

This send airwaves on various social media platform with some people dismissing him as fake whilst others labeled him a magician.


Cephas Machasa said, “These are the results of being a fake prophet mwalapwa ukumfwa bamambala lesa nimalyotola tewakutumpaika oyo!!! Original prophets were able to see their fate. Talk of Jesus, Abraham, Samuel and go on asa @ izi mbwalala mwalapwa bafikambapp”.

Ben Mpala Chanda  also said,”If he could  turn water as paraffin why couldn’t he too see an accident. Earlier prophets never even used man made machines let alone to die unpredictably. That man was a witch doctor who changed into a prophet for the love of material no wonder all his miracles were material linked—God is never mocked for we shall reap what we are sowing.

“This should be a lesson and a wake up call to all magicians claiming to be prophets……..He’s sorting you out one by one….wapya baisa!!!! wrote Calvin C Kapombe

Mockingly, Steve DoroHefie Stevens said prophet Nyirongo should have turned the car into a jet.

In his last Facebook post before his death, Prophet Nyirongo, “It’s tomorrow or never. Prophecy will rain like water in the service tomorrow, our eyes will see wonders.Are you ready? I feel in my spirit to prophesy to 200 people. Who is online?


  1. Paraffin issue???? Energywitchcraft&wizardly
    +magic.God help us. The turning of water into wine was for the purpose. 1st miracle for Jesus. Open your eyes widely.

  2. Atleast respect the man…he is dead.unless you hold your life in ur hands. Our lives are in God’s hands He alone gives and takes. If it were that punishment for sins comes here to us on earth,you guys talking would have long died because we all do sin. What wrong did this man do if i may ask?did he hurt anyone with his miracles?did it affect you in anyway?atleast he preached Christ,magician or not. Leave him alone to rest

    • Ala bantu aba mwandi . They don’t even knw wat they will b remembered for wen they ar gone. @ least he fulfilled his mission of spreading the word of the Lord.

  3. if Jesus died wat of him pliz pipo stp blamin him only God knwz if he wz true o not u,continue judging him,if uv nevr sinnd contiue coz u thnk u ar God,nd u will receive a cursed that wil never b uprooted in lyf,,,rip bro

  4. Zambia is best known for such kind of reporting ‘PHD’ kind of. We keep on getting so much concerns about what others are fairing either neg/pos when ourselves have only succeded in failing and talking about other people’s achievements.

  5. No judging yes and mhsrip but my question is why turn water into paraffin or what ever, people please don’t just criticize read and study the bible. If water was turned into juice to feed the hungry or thirsty yes understandable but that am sorry will never agree…may God watch over him

  6. ama talktime na paraffin z that prophecy he ws a magician.lesson leant kwashala abanankwe

  7. okay people shouldn’t judge…we all don’t know if he was lying or not besides we are all human*sinners*..prophets are human just like you and me..God is equl he loves us equally so everyone should just pray on their own and reduce going to prophets…if God can listen to the prophet why can’t he listen to you…

  8. If jesus himself died,a person who claimed to be God…who are we 2 judge a fellow being like that?christianity is just a religion and not a god…if u criticize his dids because of his religious position,then u must be dumb enough to realize that he was only human…#R_I_P_bro…

    • Jesus never claimed to be God or equal to God. He is God’s son and his death was foretold before he came to earth and his death served a purpose and that is to redeem our lives. #John 3:16.

    • yaya…i get it,coz that’s from a christian perspective right?but I am not a christian,i am a skeptic…I don’t believe in myths dear..

    • Edgar Jesus never claimed to be God. He’s God himself that’s y as christians we say Jesus is Lord.

    • like i said…am not into this jesus fairy tale…the only God I know is the first wonder of the world,such that no man has ever seen him before…#be_realistic… I hate it when people claim to know a lot about God…please question your religion and find out why it has got so many denominations contradicting each other,ain’t that misleading enough?..#wake_up_people

  9. the advise is that you shouldn’t put everything into man’s life if that person dies then you are doomed….trust in God..especially women

  10. Papa Israel, am jst learning to leave this to GOD coz some comments here are scaring hey

  11. Some comments don’t make sense… how can a normal person put up such surely??? Are you God I really fear for your life….

  12. Problem yenu mwamba ne fitumbi(gossiping dead pipo zambian u av got nothin to do shame!)

  13. Some comments how would you feel if its your relative or someone close to you and people pass irrelevant comments honestly? No man has power over death prophet, pastor, bishop etc they are all human none of them is God they are not Christ they are just his ambassadors on earth..please let’s have respect for the dead and their families.. May grace of God be upon us that we maybe part of his kingdom.. Jesus was doubted and crucified why is it so had to believe that with God all things are possible? Are you sure the devil has more power than God? Trust in God he is the author of life!

  14. whether ur opinion O nt. u ar nt god u ar nt allowed to judge. any luk at ur lives den say somthing abt a friends life

  15. Yes!!!!! turning water into paraffin 4 what?????? Stop playin shit man go to……………….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. such utterances are not good about the man of God . who says this is God ‘s punishment because he does not punish us as our sins deserve. we should learn more about the purpose for miracles and what are miracles. even christ did make bread twice , there always a reason as to why we must appreciate any miracles. beware lest you sin against the holy spirit check your headline s

  17. Admin better watch your tongue, these are not politics, there are people, family members & church members mourning cause they have lost a dear brother,one who comforted & showed them the way. so whether fake or real prophet, leave things of God alone from your business.

  18. Who gave u the right to judge,check your life if it is pure,you judge today u will be judged tomorrow.

  19. its so sad that we calling ourselves christians are happy of the death of another. even if u say he was a true prophet or not, he was a human being.

  20. But ur pipo why ar u like this is it yo problem u better maid yo on issues only our father in heaven knows u ar jx westing yo time dont have others things to do than talking on sameone whos gone may God hav mercy on u pipo

  21. Hey, Prophet EN was just human.There was no way he was going to live for ever.John the baptist was beheaded,would you say God punished him for being fake? Come on pipo, lets not judge!

  22. you people y are you behaving like the chilld or how can fill if it was you?Dont judge you have no right to say bad words about him the more you say the more you are cursing yourselves,busy talking usless words chack your life and were are you standing,may God see you through you Dont know what you are doing!my his SRP

  23. Somethings we can see and conclude for ourselves,we dont need divine eyes to see if one is spirit driven or not,,,

  24. I wonder y we take time 2 judge others instead of judging ourselves….thats da duty of God 2 judge nt u and i, its high tym we need 2 reflect on our lives and check if we live right b4 our God. Being a false or true prophet does nt concern any of us…he has done his part, its him nw wit God…may his work follow him and my condolences 2 da family….

  25. the only one worthy to judge is God himself..judge not and you shall not be judged. mind you this is defamation….careful

  26. pipo dnt judge him kn we say stephen was fake 4 hm he was stoned 2 death.let God he oredy has a lawry azamu kabela milandu.so dnt judge

  27. u foolish zambians, who bewitched u? everything u see is negative, may God deliver u. Rest in peace man of God

  28. He Turned water into parafin,, why dint he Turn an Accident into a party,,nd celebrate,

  29. From my time i started walkin with prophets they dont die by accident so didnt he see that hes going to die

  30. Remember he died minutes after the accident. What if he got right with God. Check yourself and if you died today instantly where would you be after? Don’t judge

  31. You guys why r u blaming the admin..they’ve just reported what people were saying..

    • I wish all pipo reasoned like you. y the blame on admn instead of appreciating them for the information sure. I feel bad mweeee….. should they keep quiet?

  32. who told u he was a fake prophet,do u know tht u can be sued for this,,muleisala ifikanwa,if u dnt hv news beta u stay at yo stupid homes thta publishing ill stories,atase!

  33. even when Jesus died they said… u saved others…save yourself… God alone knowz who nyirongo was and y he has died.

  34. Do u have evidence that his death is punishment? I also questioned his prophecies and miracles, but who am I to judge him? Leave everything to the Creator. Who knows maybe he was taken by the Creator himself.

  35. Imwe ba mwankole let de dead be dead ok f he ws a magician was he usin magic ya nyoko

  36. Dis z how u show yo primitivity ignorance.prophet nyilongo lest in peace.the tabloid dat publishs dis story its a devil

    • Remember he died minutes after the accident. What if he got right with God. Check yourself and if you died today instantly where would you be after? Don’t judge

  37. Indeed he was a fake prophet,we have so much magician in the name of prophet these are last days.

    • Remember he died minutes after the accident. What if he got right with God. Check yourself and if you died today instantly where would you be after? Don’t judge

    • you also have your day of saying bye to this world what testimony are you going to leave behind

  38. Whether he was fake or real, its not your duty to pas judgement. The only one who knew him from within and without is God The bible clearly states that judge not. & please curb those confusion & let him be mourned with dignity.

  39. Anyway whether he was fake he was a father to someone,an uncle to someone,a caretaker to someone in short he had people that depended on his hands I don’t think it’s helping blasting him when he is dead, we had time to correct him when he was alive for now let’s leave our brother man alone it’s now between him and his creator.

  40. People of God let’s not judge let only God be the one to judge, may God help us thru this trying time have a blessed day people..

  41. Awe let’s not speak ill things to the dead only will judge him according to his works,

  42. Come on, everyone dies. Nyirongo was still going to die whether he was a fake prophet or not. Are all people dying in road accidents & other accidents paying for their sins? no. God can let a sinner live even longer than the righteous. Leave jugement to God

  43. Come on, everyone dies. Nyirongo was still going to die whether he was a fake prophet or not. Are all people dying in road accidents & other accidents paying for their sins? no. God can let a sinner live even longer than the righteous. Leave jugement to God
