President Emmerson Mnangagwa narrated how Zion Christian Church (ZCC) founder the late Bishop Samuel Mutendi prophesied that Mnangagwa would win in the race that he was participating.
He said this while addressing thousands of people who included members of the ZCC and its current leader, Bishop Nehemiah Mutendi at Mnangagwa Farm in Masvingo during a memorial service for his nephew Garikai Nyathi on Saturday. Mnangagwa said Mutendi foretold how Mnangagwa’s colleague the late Matthew Malowa who was part of the Crocodile Gang, would not make it. Said Mnangagwa:
We stood up, and holding his famous staff in one hand, he said referring to me and my colleague, ‘you are in a race but in a race there are some who win and others who fail to make it, yet all of you will be part of the race,’ up to now I do not know what he meant. He said to the two of us, ‘between you two, one will win but another will fail in the race that you are participating. Today he is no longer there but I wanted to ask him what he exactly meant by saying my colleague and I were in a race. I now know that as a man of God he was talking about what awaited us in way into the future and what he said was fulfilled and today I am here with you.
Samuel Mutendi was a religious figure and the Zimbabwean branch founding leader of the Zion Christian Church in Rhodesia which had spread from South Africa where he had been baptised by ZCC founder Enginase Lekganyane. Read More About Samuel Mutendi
