ZCC warns Mugabe of God’s wrath

ZIMBABWE Council of Churches (ZCC) general secretary, Kenneth Mtata has warned President Robert Mugabe of gleefully accepting idolatrous titles from his followers, saying he risks God’s wrath of being “struck to death” like the Biblical King Herod.

Mugabe has been “blasphemously” idolised by his followers, including Cabinet ministers with some of them labelling him “Black Jesus”, “the anointed Moses”, “God ordained” while other ministers have even oddly claimed the geriatric leader will defy nature and not die.

Zanu PF youth leader, Kudzanayi Chipanga recently went overboard when he declared that “when we go to heaven don’t be surprised to see Robert Gabriel Mugabe standing beside God vetting people into heaven. Gushungo, you are an angel”.

Mtata, without mentioning names, said such “kind of blasphemous idolatry” is not only dangerous to the nation, but “kills the receiver” in much the same way Herod in the Bible was killed by God for accepting religious titles.

“We hear so many people whether they are artists or whether they are people who are in political parties who address, certain political figures with religious titles, sometimes even giving them titles of God or some vicars or assistants to God.

“This is very scary, this level of blasphemy is very scary but it seems like it is something becoming normal. It is one such example of idolatry in our country where religious titles are given to political figures so that through this kind of praise they can share the benefits of patronage to these people who are praising them,” Mtata said in a video posted on the social networking sit Facebook on Friday.

“By the way, this is not very new, we saw it in the Book of Luke, for example, when we read of some people who came and praised Herod and they gave him some religious titles and we read in Luke that the angel of God struck Herod when he was sitting there and he died and he started rotting where he was sitting.

“Idolatry does not only kill the possibility of individuals focusing on the right God but it also kills those that are receiving and enjoying these titles of worship,” he added.

Zanu PF officials, no matter the rank, are not shy to brown-nose Mugabe who is no stranger to being genuflected, especially at public events such as rallies. Early this year, Chipanga said Mugabe’s birthday should be celebrated as if it is Christmas Day, because to them, the 93-year-old leader is “The Messiah”.

  1. God cannot share His glory with (mortal) men. It a shame that wordly material desire that can subject people to such disastrous levels.

  2. Amen.

  3. Kuzvikudza kunotangira kuparadzwa. imbwa chete ndodzinotadza kuziva simba raMwari uye kana munhu afukidzwa nerima rezvivi anodadira Mwari nekutaura tsvina iya seyakataurwa naChipanga. Politics is not religion, better kuba nekuuraya vanhu kwamunoita kuya but kana moda kuparadzwa nekunyadziswa tambai muchishandura zvaMwari kuti muzvishandise pamabasa enyu akaipa. I always write this, Nebchaddnezzar adziirwa nehupfumi akazvikudza asi Mwari akamubvisa pahushe akamuisa kudondo akafura sora, Mwana wake Beltishazzar akatora zvitsvene zvetembere yaJehova akamwiramo doro, ruoko roukaonekwa ruchinyora pamadziro MENE MENE TEKEL URFSAN, that night he was killed and his kingdom was given to the Medes and Persians. Saka taurai henyu asi dont forget that someone is very much intrested in this praising frenzy of yours and one day he will come and visit you Zanu pf.

  4. Wezhira wezhara

    I believe 100% that God the Almighty, Our Creator lives and is there. However it is some of the tales in the Bible that I begin to question because if indeed God punishes for sin, it should have come long back because Mugabe has killed since 1980s, 1990s when white people were murdered on farms, 2000-2013 when more people were killed for supporting the MDC. He seems to be rewarded with more years for killing people . Mhinduro yaMwari paminamato yevanhu yakatononoka and what is required now is an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. Period.

    1. Remember the physical death is not much of an issue with God we all die in the end, I think the Almighty is giving him a chance to repent just like he gives all of us, yes he has killed pple and run down the country and looted we are angry and bitter but revenge belongs to God and hell is a place where no one can wish anyone, I pray for the salvation of the murderer who has killed us and made us destitute in our own country while he remained exalted in his palace,yes God will punish all African leaders that make His pple suffer, those who do not seek pardon and repentance for the atrocities they have committed
      to God and His children

  5. no wezhira. GOD is so patient and can sometimes allow evil to continue to try and save sinner. GOD’S grace for Mugabe has been a lot.. There are times when GOD will say enough is enough. zanu followers might not get enough grace like mugabe had. they must be careful. God’s enemy is the devil. God loves mugabe and is avoiding hitting mugabe because his love for him. Yet mugabe is being used as a shield by the devil. GOD wishes that mugabe can separate himself from the devil but he is not. When Mugabe gets to heaven if he does not repent of what he has done he will weep for eternity when he sees what GOD wanted him to do for the country not the plans the devil gave him to do. (so to judge)

  6. chipanga kana pane arikukutuma haana problem. problem ndiwe urikutitokonya makristu. we are not politicians ,but wava kutishungurudza kuti tiremerwe nekunamatira maleaders enyika because of yo utterances. who are u son and where do you come from.are u a giver of life. do u know that there is A GOD?

  7. Its called bootlicking and mostly the thieves and loafers in either govt and ruling party are the ones who give those titles so that, the nonagenarian would keep them in their respective positions or promote them.
    These bootlickers, deep down in their hearts, they dont mean what they say, its that, due to economic hardships, they would want to remain employed and thats why they call Mugabe, Cremora(fake milk), God, jesus, Angel, etc
    Zvimwe zvinotonyadzisa. THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD. OUR GOD IS IMMORTAL.

  9. Chipanga haana vabereki here? Ko sei vasingatsiure mwana wavo. Kana ivo vachatongwawo.

  10. Haiwawo kwana iwe Mtata…washaya vekunamatira here? Ko matsotsi ayo anofamba achizviti maporofita aMwari wacho unodii kumaudza izvozvo? Kana musi umwe wandakakunzwa uchinyomba matsoprofita iwaya. Usada kungwarira paduri sehuku. Pasi tsvee kuchengetedza madzimai nevasikana varikubatwa chibharo kumaporofita uko uchingodongodza nezvepolitics.Saka iwe ndiwe watumwa namwari kutiudza izvozvo here…ita mushe. Mwari anoita zvaanoda nguva yaanoda saka rega kuda kuita muturikiri wenhema.

  11. I would have expected an outcry by now from the “major” prophets, against these utterances… What do you say Papa Makandiwa, Magaya, Shana? After judging us here on earth we shall find the President judging us again in heaven? Or to you Chipanga is correct?
