As churches, we are not united. We don’t speak with one voice. So the first thing we are supposed to do as churches is to unite. We are so divided, we can’t speak with one voice.

So we want to initiate a dialogue among church organisations and leadership. As it stands we are so divided.
Dvene absolved MDC president Nelson Chamisa of blame in snubbing the State House dialogue, saying that the church should shun individualism. He added:
We cannot say Chamisa join the dialogue but we say no to individualism. Let’s put the interest of the people that we lead first.
