A self-proclaimed prophet and one of Zimbabwe’s most influential diplomats, Ubert Angel, has been implicated in Al-Jazeera’s undercover investigation on laundering operations involving gold smuggling.
The founder of Spirit Embassy, London, United Kingdom with branches in almost 15 countries of the world, admitted that he could use his Diplomatic Passport to launder up to $1.2 billion.
According to the undercover investigation, the 44-year-old charismatic evangelical preacher repeatedly admitted that President Emmerson Mnangagwa of Zimbabwe was aware of his schemes.
Recall that President Mnangagwa, in 2021, appointed Angel as a special envoy and ambassador-at-large to Europe and the Americas.
Angel offered to Al-Jazeera’s undercover reporters that he could use his diplomatic cover to carry large volumes of dirty cash into Zimbabwe as part of a laundering operation involving gold smuggling.
He said, “I can call the president now, not tomorrow, now and put him on the speaker; it’s not an issue.
“We are the government.”
Angel believes he can heal the sick and predict the outcomes of football matches and elections.
The cleric was hosted in Nigeria by Apostle Johnson Suleman of the Omega Fire Ministries, Auchi, Edo State, early this year.
