FIRST Lady Grace Mugabe has organised a massive campaign rally, possibly early next month, with members of various apostolic sects at Zimbabwe Grounds in Highfield, Harare, as she extends her tentacles ahead of the Zanu PF extraordinary congress set for December this year.

The rally, which is being organised by former Zanu PF central committee member and patron of the newly-formed Zimbabwe Amalgamated Churches Council, Jimayi Muduvuri, is expected to be attended by over 200 000 apostolic sect followers.

Although NewsDay understands that Grace has not yet confirmed the date for the rally, the sect members were reportedly pushing for the meeting to be held next week.

NewsDay heard that Muduvuri officially invited Grace last Friday with her handlers at State House reportedly still consulting on the proposed date, amid reports that November 1 had been set as the provisional date for the rally.

Muduvuri was not reachable for comment yesterday, but the sect’s national co-ordinator Emmanuel Muzhangiri confirmed the development, saying they were hoping to be addressed by both the First Lady and President Robert Mugabe.

“The date has not yet been confirmed, but we are meeting the First Family at Zimbabwe Grounds possibly early November,” Muzhangiri said.

“We are a big organisation and we hope to bring about 200 000 members to meet the First Family. We basically want to thank the President for the peace in the country, his support for agriculture through the Presidential Inputs Scheme and for allowing us the freedom of worship we are enjoying in the country.”

He added: “We will also take the opportunity to express our concerns that include requesting the President that all church members also benefit from the Presidential Inputs Scheme that, together with last year’s good rains, has made the country food-secure.”

Well-placed sources told NewsDay that Muduvuri had over the past few weeks been traversing the length and breadth of the country meeting church leaders from Marange, Zion Christian Church (ZCC) and other apostolic and Pentecostal sects to ensure maximum turnout at the planned rally.

ZCC leader Nehemiah Mutendi, a staunch Zanu PF supporter, has reportedly been roped in as the master of ceremonies at the rally that Mugabe would use to lure the more than three million voters believed to be locked in churches as the ruling party targets over half a million voters in every province.

Zanu PF has intensified its efforts to reach churches since last month with Harare provincial commissar Shadreck Mashayamombe invading a Johane Masowe Church gathering in Kuwadzana under the guise of voter registration.

After the gathering, Mashayamombe said the church had requested to be addressed by Grace. He said Harare alone had pledged to assemble a gathering of over 70 000 members.

“The meeting was successful and the church requested to be addressed by First Lady Grace Mugabe,” Mashayamombe said then.

“They promised to gather about 70 000 delegates for the address. We had gone there to request them to register to vote and thank them for their continued support for President Mugabe.”

In the run-up to past elections, Zanu PF has always used the Church as its favourite hunting ground with Mugabe and his top officials leading the campaign.

  1. These greedy church leaders Muduviri and Muzhangiri are only doing this for their own selfish benefit.The zanu pf government has been on record telling church leaders to stay away from politics and when it is convinient to them they go to church gatherings especially among the apostolic sect to campaign for political offices.It really pains me to see such church vultures and con artist disguising as church leaders taking advantage of their congregants and putting them at the mercy of the zanu pf leaders who take turns to bombardthe hapless congregants with their slogans and hate speech.These guys do not represent the living God,for the living God is a just God who do not want to see His people being fed with hate speech and political propaganda and at the same time living like slaves in their own country.No! But the Living God is so faithfull and all those that take advantage of His people will definitely get the wrath from Him.Zanu pf leaders usually want to address these church gatherings when they are facing an election and promise them all kinds of benefits when they vote them into office,but the real beneficiaries are the so called church leaders who are paid handsomely for convincing their congregants to vote for the mafia party.The worst part of all this hullaboo is that after they vote for the zanu pf mafia party,these people will become more poorer than they were before save for their leaders who are nichodemously rewarded with farms,house,money,cars etc. and of course the leaders of zanu pf who seize the opportunity to continue plundering and looting state resources with reckless abandon.May be someone within the church should tell these people that the God that they believe in will not forsake them,but zanu pf will always be tossing them into the gabbage bin as soon as it gets their vote.I challenge genuine church leaders to tell their congregants that it is their right to vote for what they believe will make their life better,just like the choice they make in doing what is right or good.It is their basic right to put in office someone whom they belive will run the country fairly without fear of favour and besides it is one of the reasons why people went to war with the Smith regime so that we exercise our right to vote.The zanu pf regime is not denying people to vote like what Smith used to do but it has mastered the art of oppression by letting them go to register to vote but it forces people to vote for them or else they face serious consequences including death.Why is it that they find it easy to go gatherings of these mapositoris than believers like Roman catholics,Methodists,Aglican even these sprouting pentecostal churches?The reason is very simple,Mapositori churches are infested mostly with poor people who in many cases did not finish their education or didn’t went to school in the first place.The few rich ones are those that may go to such churches seeking spiritual deliverance and seeking solutions to their business decline.Such people are very easy to lie to,very easy to intimidate and above all very easy ku “believisa” if i may borrow the latest saying in street lingo.

  2. With 90% unemployment and daily maximum cash withdrawals of a few bond dollars in coins among a thousand other insane failures, I don’t understand how anyone even under the greatest force of coercion can attend any rally to do with Mugabe or zanupf in this day & age. A good & proper Mugabe or Grace rally these days should be attracting no more than 10 people at most

    • Why are Zimbabwean people so blind folded by this so called evil Mugabe Family?what is really its specialist in zimbabwean lives when the entire masses are suffering?Stupid people without vision and knowledge will always remain very foolish.Left and right,people are being toy toyed by evil demons who are pretending as god messiah.Godly people do not fear the dead among the living and this Mugabe family and company has destroyed many many family ties.Down with this evil family together with their demonic supporters.
