Prophet Uebert Angel has reportedly been stripped of his diplomatic status after being exposed in a gold smuggling and money laundering documentary.
The Popular British-Zimbabwean Businessman, charismatic evangelical preacher and the founder of Spirit Embassy, was stripped of his status after an explosive documentary into gold smuggling and money laundering by the Al Jazeera Undercover Unit.
In the first episode of the documentary, Uebert Angel who was appointed ambassador-at-large and a presidential envoy in March 2021 by President Emmerson Mnangagwa, unwittingly told undercover Al Jazeera journalists who disguised as Chinese criminals, that he can use his diplomatic status to carry large amount of illicit funds into Zimbabwe for them.
Former Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe Monetary Policy Committee member, Eddie Cross, has now confirmed to Al Jazeera that Angel has been stripped of his diplomatic status.
Cross added that there is a possibility Angel will also face jail time as a result of the revelations in the Al Jazeera documentary. He said;
“Well, I can tell you that the so-called Pastor. The guy who claimed to be a Christian Pastor has been stripped of his diplomatic passport. In fact, he has had his passport removed from him and the President has stripped him of all status. He might in fact face jail time.”
