Apostolic Faith Mission in Zimbabwe church (AFM) president, Cossum Chiangwa, on Wednesday survived a road traffic mishap which he claimed was caused by his enemies.
Reverend Chiangwa was driving a Mercedes Benz on his way home along Golden Stairs Road in Mt Pleasant when one of his car’s rear wheels dislocated. Said Rev Chiangwa:
This is not my first time to experience such mishaps.
Some of the people who were after my life (did this) but God fought them in another way against their actions.
They came to testify before me unaware that I am just God’s servant. Handinei navo ini (I’ve no beef against them).
I survived because the fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me. Its grace.
I strongly believe that my enemies loosened my wheel nuts while I was waiting for my mobile phone to get fixed.
Chiangwa called his son for help who fixed the wheels before he resumed his journey.
AFM has two rival presidents since a dispute in 2018 over changes to the church’s constitution resulted in a split in one of Zimbabwe’s oldest pentecostal churches.
The other faction of reformists is led by Reverend Amon Madawo, a close ally of former president Reverend Aspher Madziyire.
