President Mnangagwa has urged Zimbabweans to accept God’s will following Cyclone Idai which has left more than 230 people dead and a trail of destruction.
Mnangagwa said this during a church service at the Methodist Church in Mabelreign, Harare. The service was also attended by Chief Secretary in the Office of the President and Cabinet, Dr Misheck Sibanda and Information, Media and Broadcasting Services principal director Mr Regis Chikore. Said Mnangagwa:
As people, we do not know anything. We only get to know something after it would have occurred but God knows everything, even things to come in future. Job lost all his children and wealth but he never turned away from God. We should accept this although it is difficult, even for me. Sometimes we ask God why He allows such things to happen and also if He still exists. We cannot direct God but we just accept what He has done. Let us pray and seek God when we still can as disaster can come anytime and in different forms. We are all sinners and we should all go to Jesus when we are still alive.
Mnangagwa also thanked all the countries, companies and individuals that have assisted Zimbabwe in this difficult period.
