Mozambican musician Arsénio Amós, kidnapped on February 5 allegedly in retaliation for one of his videos, is now free.
Arsénio is known on the Internet as “Beleza em Pessoa”, and is dedicated to discussing various issues in a humorous way in his channel, which highlights the social and political life of Mozambique. Its channel “Arte & Vida” has more than 80,000 subscribers, which makes it one of the most popular youtubers in the country.
In recent videos, Arsénio commented on how self-proclaimed Mozambican “prophets” accumulate wealth thanks to the faith of others. One is about the irregularities of the religious activity of Joe Williams, a Mozambican prophet currently suspected of being involved in the kidnapping of the youtubero.
On February 6, after the kidnapping of Arsenio, an audio attributed to Williams circulated in social networks in which he makes threats to the young youtubero.

In another video, the youtubero calls attention to the fact that some prophets did not like their position on the channel and that they had received death threats.

In the following days, photos began to circulate that reported the presence of Arsénio Amos handcuffed at a police station in the city of Maputo. In the photos you could see the prophet Joe Williams talking to a policeman.
On February 7, Notícias, the country's largest newspaper, reported that the prophet had been arrested by the police for attempted kidnapping. Police revealed that they were already following in the footsteps of the prophet and that they had been alerted by undisclosed sources that the prophet would be with the youtubero in a car used as captivity.
As of February 19, Williams was in police custody. He is the main suspect of being the intellectual author of the kidnapping, and will also be investigated for illicit enrichment and active corruption.
The phenomenon of the prophets is not exclusive to Mozambique, it has been registered in several countries of the African continent. They promise disease healing and resurrection after death and are often linked to churches whose origins are unknown.
The African Black user commented on the case of the Arsénio kidnapping:
Isto é against os direitos humans!
Or jovem that appears these images, chama-se Beleza em Pessoa, é blogueiro e tem um canal de youtube, which is dedicated to life Stye two celebrities. Or jovem foi treated in a dehuman way, pela nossa polícia sob ordens of the self-sacrificed self-prophet Joe Williams, as documented.
Secondly, Joe Williams will not be satisfied with any comments from the jovem that he said that this fake terry to Licença da Sua igreja to operate no country.
Eu thought that the height of himself was enough for Joe Williams. But this is only the case because we have TVs and radios lhe dão tempo of antenna to shoot you all. Lembremo-nos que um mês o supposto prophet teria sent um VAI A MERDA to Mozambican years from two USA.
I think that, at the National Comissão dos Direitos Humans, I must speak to the agents involved in this pouca vergonha. Or Joe Williams' behavior, once again, see that he is not a prophet. A preacher of Deus's word knows how to be and be socially.
This goes against human rights!
The young man who appears in these images, is called Beleza em Pessoa and is a blogger with a YouTube channel dedicated to the lifestyle of celebrities. The young man has been treated inhumanly by our Police under the orders of the self-proclaimed prophet Joe Williams, as the images document.
According to some information, Joe Williams was not satisfied with some comments from the young man who said he forged his church license to operate in the country.
I think it's time to end Joe Williams' raids. But all this only happens because our televisions and radios give air time to film everything and everyone. Recall that a month ago the supposed prophet would have sent a GOOD WILL to the Mozambicans of the United States.
I believe that the National Human Rights Commission should intervene and reason with the agents involved in this little shame. The behavior of Joe Williams proves once again that he is not a prophet. A preacher of the word of God knows how to be and be socially.
The photos that circulated after what happened showed the youtubero with his mouth closed with duct tape, to which Zarito Mutana reacted:
Muito sad that fizeram com or Blogueiro “Beleza em pessoa” received many photos that do not dignify [sic] us, this seems to be a rapture that stopped, I hope to be wrong, although it is a question of a vingança do Joe William against or jovem.
Something has to stop this show, somebody has to stop this TV show, somebody just needs Joe William …
Assim, what will be next Cazé ou Bruno? ..
Very sad what they did with the blogger “Beleza em pessoa”. I received many photos that do not dignify our Police. That seems to be yes, a kidnapping rather than an arrest. I hope I'm wrong, but I think it's a revenge of Joe William against the young man.
Someone should stop this monster, someone should stop calling this monster on television, someone should say “enough” to Joe William …
So who will be next: Cazé or Bruno?
The politician and television commentator Domingos Gundana referred to the case and repudiated the way the youtubero was arrested.
NÃO ALGEMEM TO LIBERDADE OF EXPRESSÃO!
Bom dia amigos meus and friends of meus amigos, I hope that Esteja tudo bem com every um de vocês, on estiverem
I am posting as abaixo desta written with deep indignation, in spite of all the details of two contours that will take such a Prophet to leave the home of Deus to be mundane.
But because as imagens já rodam or world, it becomes difficult, ficar indifferent. It was anticipated that or such a Prophet jovem, disso não é, but less hair is known to be condemned to the word of Deus, and is so for true, then it is outlined, “I BECAUSE YOU WAS OFFERED, SO THAT OR VOSSO PAI DO CEU, POSSESS TO FORGIVE AS YOU OFFENSE “ou a outra” THAT THAT NEVER PECOU, ATTRACTS FIRST PEDRA “.
Imagine either Nyusi, Guebuza, Chisaano, Dhlakama ou Ossufo, saissem for ai to process or command to turn on all those who falam each thing, as you can ja nao tinham espaços.
Imagine you are the Bposs da Universal fossem assim, and you will try to process each pessoa against you against your actions and your Igrejas.
This one of Prophet, will it go to everyone's mouth this country? But the first one that I chama you of futxeka, of poor, and face great videos.
Libertem or jovem Beleza em pessoa e deixem ele fazer or seu trabalho de inform.
Long live liberdade e abaixo ignoorância.
DO NOT RESTRICT FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION!
Good morning my friends and friends of my friends, I hope all is well with you, wherever you are.
I am publishing the images below this writing with deep indignation, although I do not have all the details of the details that led this Prophet to leave the essence of being a man of God for the mundane.
But because the images have already gone around the world, it is difficult to remain indifferent. It was already predicted that this so-called Prophet is not, but at least it is known that he knows the word of God, and if this is true, then he forgot the saying, “YOU WILL LOSE WHO HE OFFERED, SO THAT YOUR FATHER IN HEAVEN CAN FORGIVE YOUR OFFENSES ”or the other“ WHO IS FREE OF SIN THAT HAS THE FIRST STONE ”.
Imagine if Nyusi, Guebuza, Chisaano, Dhlakama or Ossufo went around demanding or causing everyone who talks to them to be arrested, the prisons would no longer have spaces.
Imagine if the bishops of universal were like that, that they demanded or made arrest every person who speaks against them and their Churches.
Will this Prophet silence everyone on this earth? But he is the first to call his futxeka brothers, the poor, and make great videos.
Free for young Beleza em pessoa and let her do her job of informing.
Long live freedom and ignorance down.
God bless you.
The same comment was made by the journalist and historian Euclides Flávio:
APEX DO ANADMISSIVEL
I think that or Prophet joel williams, he is going to exaggerate. We can see these images or Blogueiro DA BELEZA EM PESSOA, submerged in situations of torture before swallowing the Justiça authorities, presumably because or Blogueiro, was spotted to HONRA E BOM NOME do nosso Prophet.
We can't admit. That something is façade. It is necessary to understand that Da Beleza não é assassino, é um profissional “Honest”. Isto no. I repeat: no.
THE TOP OF INADMISSIBILITY
I think the prophet Joel Williams is already exaggerating. In these images we can see the blogger BELEZA in person, subjected to torture situations before arriving at the authorities of Justice, supposedly because the blogger has stained the HONOR AND GOOD NAME of our Prophet.
This we cannot admit. Something be done. We must understand that Beleza is not a murderer, he is an “honest” professional. Not that. I repeat: no.
There is much speculation about the origin of Williams' wealth, whose origin is unknown until today.
Others have hypothesized that the kidnapping was in retaliation but not because of the criticism of the youtubero, but because of the breach of an alleged contract between the Prophet and Arsenio so that the youtubero speaks well of the one in his channel. This is mere speculation. That possibility was raised by the journalist Virgílio Conjo:
Contract acessória de imagem é normal services. But, as such, it must be feito within a contract with the defined bem clauses: communication objective, Target, formats and there.
I bloggers, Rádio e televisão's presenters are going to provide a public service to public figures in soupinhas. Or that he did not know that a day or faith would turn against or feiticeiro.
Eles, during muito tempo ajudaram JW to sair das merdinhas nem! … e, não tardou, não te mais espaço for so much merda JW atacou os own bloggers …
The hiring of accessory image services is normal. But it must be done within the framework of a contract with well-defined clauses: end of communication, objective, formats and so on.
Bloggers and radio and television presenters provide a bad accessory service to public figures for the benefit of the few. What they did not know is that one day the spell turns against the magician.
For a long time they helped JW out of the shit … and, soon, having no space for so much shit, JW attacked the bloggers themselves …
