Messiah coMplex 91 JESUS OF KITWE also known as Parent Rock of the World, Mr. Faithful, Mr. Word of God Jesus of Kitwe walks around a marketplace in the town of Ndola, Zam- bia, proclaiming the ar- rival of the Messiah and the End of Days. When he’s not sermonizing, the 43-year-old man named Bupete Chibwe Chishimba wears street clothes, drives a taxi, and lives with his wife and five children in neighboring Kitwe, a copper-mining city with more than half a million inhabitants. This Jesus says he received a rev- elation from God when he was 24. Shortly after this image was taken, a crowd of churchgoing Christians accused him of blasphemy. When the crowd began to threaten violence, Jesus of Kitwe left in a hurry.
