A local pastor has urged MDC leader Nelson Chamisa to accept the 2018 presidential result even if it could be proven that the poll was rigged.
Bishop Roderick Makusha of Deeper Life Ministries insinuated that God may have approved the rigging so Chamisa should let bygones be bygones. Said Makusha:
Sometimes even if you lose after being rigged you have to accept the result, you have to accept because God would have given his stamp of approval. You have to accept so that the nation goes forward.
You should let bygones be bygones, you never know maybe one day if you are still alive you will rule Zimbabwe.
Makusha made the remarks while giving a solidarity message during a national prayer held by indigenous churches at the National Sports Stadium in Harare on Saturday.
Mnangagwa managed to avoid a runoff in the 2018 presidential election by less than one per cent of the 50+ per cent threshold required. Chamisa refused to accept the outcome, claiming that the whole process was rigged by electoral officials.
