A controversial religious leader has called upon Zimbabweans to throw their weight behind President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s “Vision 2030”.
Leader and founder of the Family of God church, Reverend Andrew Wutaunashe, was addressing congregants in Bulawayo on Africa Day this Sunday. He said:
President Mnangagwa’s Vision 2030 is our greatest asset as a nation. The vision will not die.
It will speak and it will live because this vision is based on God. Whatever has its foundations on God will live.
The sound of scolding voices will fade as the vision of ED will live. The vision is bigger than us.
It will bring glory and productivity and will restore our nation to its glory and beyond.
Let us have hope in the nation. Let us all fight hard knowing what our efforts will yield.
Our greatest hope is in the Lord. There comes hope in the knowledge that we have a vision because with no vision a nation is destroyed.
Wutawunashe encouraged the longsuffering Zimbabweans to remain stoical and not to despair or lose hope. He added:
These pains that the country is experiencing are the pains of a woman giving birth. In times of hardships, it is easy to despair and blame, become faithless and lose hope.
As we celebrate Africa Day, let us remember the contributions of those that came before us, lay our hope and trust in the Lord and have faith in the vision of our leaders.
Let us build ourselves as Africans as this is time for Africa’s revival. Let us remember that the Lord gave our liberation war fighters power to overcome forces and stronger military forces. Our fighters are our own Moses who led us from turmoil.
