Addressing journalists in Harare yesterday, the Zimbabwe Amalgamated Churches Council (Zacc) said that the election result challenge by MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa has created a stalemate which is hurting the country. The organisation urged Chamisa to “put the country first” by dropping the challenge and moving on.
Said Zacc patron Jimayi Muduvuri:
As the Church in Zimbabwe, representing apostolic sects in the land, we prayed for peace and we observed that the elections were held in a free and fair environment…
However, we are now surprised that Chamisa, who claims to be a pastor wants to foment chaos and suffering among Zimbabweans. It is trite that Zimbabweans are peace loving and God fearing people and do not want to be abused by political leaders who are more concerned with attaining their selfish goals.
We strongly condemn the MDC Alliance stance to ignore the people’s will and pray that sense prevails among their supporters who just recently went on a rampage, looting shops and disturbing our peace.
Leaders of the church would like to tell all politicians that the country’s president was ordained by God. He was chosen by God and the will of God should be respected.
