South African prophetess Vuyokazi Matu sent President Cyril Ramaphosa an email on Monday last week announcing that “the Lord orders the government of the ANC in South Africa within 10 days to hand over leadership of the country to the government of God led by Mogoeng Thomas Reetsang Mogoeng”.
Matu, who has carried an intense prayer burden regarding the state of affairs in South Africa and Africa for some years, also released a weighty word on “the rebirth of South Africa” on March 11 during an online meeting that she called with Christian leaders to share what God had placed on her heart.
In that word she said God had said that in answer to prayer He was rescuing SA, turning the nation towards Israel again, and releasing and appointing His government with Mogoeng chosen to lead SA “out of Babylon”.
In an interview today Matu said she has never been so tested about releasing a word as she was about the radical message she sent to the president and senior government and political leaders on Monday.
But she says God confirmed the word to her and gave her a peace about releasing it and led her to send the president and the leaders both her March 11 word and Monday’s word, together with a covering letter in which she provided some context to her messages.
In her email to President Ramaphosa she thanked him for his contribution to the nation and explained that the attached words which she had received from the Lord were a heavy burden which she was submitting “to find peace” and “in obedience and fear of the Lord”.
While we were talking on the phone she received an email from the Private Office of the President, acknowledging “with appreciation” receipt of her correspondence.
In her covering letter Matu outlines her spiritual journey since 2017 when she was led to spend extensive daily time in prayer and Scripture concerning SA and Africa.
Discussing her role as one of a number of strategic intercessors and prophetic voices God has been raising in this time, Matu, who is the founder of Voice of Africa Global Media, says it is not a calling that she chose for herself as her passion is “mainly business”.
She writes that God’s hand is now on the healing and restoration of Africa and the change of government in South Africa that she prophesied on March 11 is the manifestation of Africa’s redemptive story.
She says there is no malicious agenda of any man behind her prophetic words.
“God, by his Spirit is responding to the cries of the people in this way. Defending the Land. Ushering in the Leadership of the Holy Spirit, The Government of God. His redemptive plan for mankind. His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven,” she writes.
In her word released last Monday Matu called on local congregations, individuals and prayer networks to participate in 10 days of repentance from March 22 to March 31, with Sunday March 28 designated as a national day of prayer to be led by Intercessors South Africa.
