MDC-T president Nelson Chamisa has blasted politicians who hijack church gatherings into political rallies to try and solicit votes from congregants. He reminded his followers that such platforms were solely for Christianity and not politics.
This follows after President Emmerson Mnangagwa addressed thousands of Zion Christian Church congregants in Bikita recently, where he reminded congregants that the new political dispensation that he is heading is all part of God’s plan.
In another Easter service attendance Zanu PF politburo member and secretary for war veterans Victor Matemadanda urged members of the Jekenisheni church to vote for Zanu PF in the coming polls.
In his Easter tweet yesterday, Chamisa attacked his political rivals for diverting the purpose of church gatherings and turning them into platforms for scoring political points.
“[I] had a wonderful and prayerful Easter weekend. The blood of Jesus shall never lose its power. Jesus Christ is Lord and Saviour. For me, worship gatherings must never be reduced to being rallies for politics and point-scoring, ”he said.
