The expensive dinner is a prelude to Uebert Angel's forthcoming "Botswana Miracle Night," scheduled for Friday at the University of Botswana Stadium from 5pm.The dinner hosted by Uebert of Spirit Embassy comes hardly a month after his brother and Botswana overseer, Lee Angel, was recently deported along with his wife for allegedly robbing his own church of offerings, tithes, and demanding that the Botswana church raise money to buy his pretty wife a Range Rover, church followers have told The Monitor.
Concerned members of Eubert's fast growing church reported his brother's extravagant habits to security forces, who, after interviewing a sizeable number of former and current members of the church, advised that Lee was a security threat.
The Spirit Embassy Church,
which is also a hit on free-to-air television across Africa all thanks to free-to-air Chinese decoders, Philibao, has been attracting more of a crowd than a Splash concert at its premises at Limkwokwing University since it opened its doors.
Church members who alerted the security forces to Lee's bizarre materialistic inclinations say the pastor kept all the church's money at his plush Phakalane house, where he used the money at his discretion. The Monitor also can reveal that some church members there smelt a rat when the pastor ordered them to contribute P80,000 ($10,000) for the construction of chalets at the church's headquarters in Zimbabwe. According to the churchgoers this $10,000 is demanded from all Spirit Embassy churches.
