Chamisa was responding to a post by one of his followers on twitter who had said:
The Zimbabweans’ birds must now fly Advocate Nelson Chamisa, how can we also be part of the team here in the Australian Diaspora?
In his response, Chamisa said:
That Zimbabwean bird symbol is part of our problem. We must deal with institutional idolatry.
Following are some of the responses to Chamisa’s tweet.
Nyaradzo Alan Nyoni @nyoni_alan: Idolatry is liking everything Chamisa or Mnangagwa posts without evaluating its substance. Idolatry is thinking your goose is cooked unless X or Y is in power. Idolatry is banking on personality instead of policy, idolatry is being a conduit instead of an introspective Zimbo.
Enter his Day @Mannychucky: You are correct I agree with you.Idolatry is not good we must only worship Jehovha our God and only unto him we should render sacred services!Like Josiah we must remove all these idols and altars.
Mutumwa @mmawere: Is it not the mind that always surrenders or defers to others to take the next step and hence the idea of leadership crops into the chain as if leaders can deliver the human promise outside the power of causation and agency endowed to each of us as individuals. Idols r pretenders
Richard Mupingo @MupingoRichard: Yeeeees President. So happy that someone in authority knows the contentious symbols of idolatry that have directed our worhip away from God as a nation. I dare say too that the red color on our flag symbolic of blood is troublesome. The only blood good for us is that of Jesus.
