Uebert Angel’s main YouTube channel has been restored six months after Google terminated it for violating terms of service.
The 15-year-old YouTube channel, which has over 2 million subscribers and a cumulative 60,448,198 video views, was terminated on May 23, 2023, after the self-proclaimed prophet, founder, and leader of Good News Church allegedly tried to remove a documentary that exposed him as a key player in gold smuggling and money laundering.
Team Pachedu reported that he was filing “multiple DMCA copyright claims on YouTube accounts which reported on the Gold Mafia, but Google has been insisting on the fair usage policy.”
Since the ban, Uebert has been using a backup YouTube account.
However, in a Wednesday Instagram post, Uebert Angel and his wife announced that the ban on the YouTube channel had been lifted.
“Our main YouTube channel is back, and we are excited for you to revisit the rich content designed to help you grow and be blessed,” Uebert Angel’s wife, Beverly Angel, wrote on her Instagram page.
“Share the news AND if you hadn’t already, subscribe, hit notifications so you don’t miss anything,” she added.
Sharing photos of the YouTube account, Uebert Angel simply wrote on his Instagram page: “WE ARE BACK!!!!
Link in bio… just press and subscribe NOW.”
According to a March 23 report of a documentary into gold smuggling and money laundering by Al Jazeera, Investigative Unit, the Zimbabwean influential diplomat “offered to use his status to launder millions of dollars through a gold-smuggling scheme.”
Uebert Angel said, according to Al Jazeera, that he “would facilitate a scheme through which unaccounted cash could be exchanged for Zimbabwe’s gold. Recipients of the gold could then sell the precious metal for legitimate money, effectively turning their cash clean.”
At the time, Zimbabwean President Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa, who appointed Angel as a special envoy and ambassador-at-large to Europe and the Americas in 2021, was implicated in the documentary.
