VICTORY World International Ministries Church leader Pastor Paul Sanyangore, who has made headlines for
claiming to have walked on water, insists he performed the miracle.
Sanyangore insists he walked on water and when asked on the relevance of the miracle, he said the video and
pictures were never meant for public consumption.
Sanyangore was speaking on Star FM yesterday with Phatisani and KVG being assisted by H-Metro Deputy Editor
â€œThat incident happened about four weeks ago and it has been a secret to us. I never wanted it to be public because
I know people are not ready for such things.
â€œThey will always talk. We were at my place celebrating the churchâ€™s anniversary and my team was having fun
time, playing in the pool. Vaitondiseka kuti I canâ€™t swim and I made a few steps into the pool.
â€œOne of my guys however took the video and pictures and began circulating them and I have since fired him from
my media team. If you can remember, I never came to you with the story,â€ he said.
He says there are a lot of supernatural things that happen in his life, some of which are hard to explain.
Sanyangore said he does not buy bread and at times wakes up with a hair cut, adding that more miracles are on their way.
â€œThere are a lot of things that happen in my life. Ndofuma pamubhedha pakazara bvudzi, ndakagerwa. I also donâ€™t
remember the last time I bought bread at my house.
“At times I buy bread just as cover up to people who will be there. It will be difficult to explain,â€ he said.
â€œWe should all be thankful as a country that the people we regard as celebrities are men of God unlike in other
countries where they hero worship vanhu vanofamba vasina kupfeka. God has shown me that more things will
come, more miracles,â€ he said.
He said he felt a happiness that he has never felt before whilst walking on water. He said if God allows, he would
love to walk on the water again.
â€œEver since the day I walked on the water, I felt excited and I would love to do it again. Ndakatodedera, right now
my parents are at my place helping me to calm down. Even when Iâ€™m bathing I feel I can walk through the walls.
Ndotonodhumira pamadziro,â€ he said.
The preacher said miracles do not prove that one is a true man of God but preaching the word of Christ. He said the
miracles are done to boost faith.
â€œMiracles are not a sign that one is a man of God but preaching the word of the death and resurrection of Christ.
Elijah did the oil miracle to the woman but she said to him you are a man of God after he resurrected her son,â€ he
Following his walking on water, Sanyangore said a lot of people have flooded his place, wanting to get into the

in and are manifesting,â€ he said.
