Mtata told Zim Morning Post last week that Zimbabwe has become a non-peaceful country. He said:
The level of violence that has started to emerge in the last few weeks, particularly from the mining community, the Mashurugwis, is heartrending.
The gulf that is growing between the State and its institutions, including the escalation of prices which do not match the incomes of citizens, is worrisome.
The clergyman added that it is regrettable that institutions like Doves and Nyaradzo Funeral Services had increased shifts in order to process deaths.
This sad development is due to the absence of doctors in hospitals, a situation that could have been avoided, he said.
