Prophet Kumchacha, who founded and is the leader of Heaven's Gate Ministries, has cautioned young people who wish to get married not to perform weddings.
In his opinion, the majority of young men who marry end up dying young, which forces their wives to take control of their estates.
The property they would receive in the event of a divorce or the man's death, he claimed, is the reason why women today are more interested in marriage.
“I consider a wedding or court marriage foolishness. If you take ten men who have done weddings, seven of them die early. I would never do a wedding; why should I do it? Only four out of six men who do weddings are wise; the rest are fools. I am saying this because women of these days are very wise,” he said.
