Chamisa in veiled Mnangagwa Easter attack

MDC Alliance presidential candidate, Nelson Chamisa has savaged politicians who use church gatherings as campaigning platforms to lure votes from congregants, reminding them that such platforms were a preserve of Christianity and not politics.

BY TINOTENDA MUNYUKWI

This comes after President Emmerson Mnangagwa addressed thousands of Zion Christian Church congregants in Bikita recently, where he reminded congregants that the new political dispensation that he is heading is all in God’s plan.

Zanu PF politburo member and secretary for war veterans Victor Matemadanda in another parallel Easter church attendance took to the podium and urged members of the Jekenisheni church to vote for Zanu PF in the coming polls.

In his Easter message, posted on his Twitter account yesterday, Chamisa attacked his political rivals for diverting the purpose of church gatherings and turning them into platforms for scoring political points.

“[I] had a wonderful and prayerful Easter weekend. The blood of Jesus shall never lose its power. Jesus Christ is Lord and Saviour. For me, worship gatherings must never be reduced to being rallies for politics and point-scoring, ”he said.

Matemadanda was unreachable for comment.

The ruling Zanu PF party has consistently come under attack for maintaining its political presence within the religious sects, with members of the apostolic sect having recurrently found themselves on the receiving end of Zanu PF politicians visiting their churches to canvass for support.

  5. Only Pastors/church leaders should not speak politics on the pulpit BUT politicians must allowed to talk politics anywhere anytime because that is who they are and thats their life. They have come out in the open and declared what they stand for. You invite or give them the podium/pulpit at your own risk, otherwise dont give them the pulpit if you dont want to hear their campaign for their political parties or opinions.

  7. Respect your colleague and former leader in the aftermath of his death first; and refrain from violent politicking at his funeral and burial. Then all will be well with you.

  8. Comment…Neither is Chamisas Gospel preaching well within the electorate’s political or spiritual needs without being needlessly presumptious of majority personal inclinations. This does not sound material political delivery. Its thus not necessarily a disadvantage when opposition politician is denied ample press coverage for his intented negative political scores. Opposition politicians would be wiser to focus more on thoroughly processed quality political utterances, rather than semi-processed voluminous ‘political’ delivery.

  13. What is it about these vapostori? Just recently they claimed Mugabe was our own angel Gabriel ordained by God rule Zimbabwe for life. But events clearly exposed the error of their beliefs. But did they learn anything? Apparently not because they are doing the same for ED. Andagain they will be proved wrong. Are these vapostori really that dumb or are they playing a game in the hope of gaining favours? The question is Who is fooling Who? The Vapostori or the politicians?

  14. These vapositori are not trully worshiping god,they are human worshipers.

  15. He is too smart to notice that he is just doing the same also

  16. PA 75 ndoisa x futi ??? zvasiyanei naMugabe ………PanaChamisa ipapo X

  17. Stop misrepresenting facts Chamisa. Politics and religion are siamese twins. Although we should not turn pulpits into theatres of politics, religious leaders must criticize politicians and the entire govt once things get out of hand. Alternately, politicians represent the face of politics in all social gatherings, the house of worship not an exception. Let us rise above trivial personal interests.

  18. Whether you call us men of God or not,we will vote for that Mnangagwa muchida musingade because tinoteerera zvinenge zvataura vakuru vedu vechechi not imi.Nekuwanda kwedu tichamuvhotera asvotwa ngaarutse.A friend of mine in UK sent me a text achiti kuno kuUK we are beginning to like this ED kkkkkkkkkkk
