Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa's United Family International Church (UFIC) deputy spokesman Psychology Maziwisa made a surprise appearance at Juhane Masowe Echishanu shrine at the Highfield Lusaka car park on Sunday afternoon.
Maziwisa, who was accompanied by Godfrey Gomwe and another MP Shadreck Mashayamombe had time with the members of the apostolic sect and promised to help the members of the shrine. They also urged them to acquire title deeds for the place they were worshipping at.
"We are going to help the members of Johane Masowe Echishanu to acquire the land they are using. I want to assure you that we are going to do everything in our capacity to help you acquire this open space you are using and have title deeds for it," he claimed.
"Together with my team we will also help people from Highfield to acquire decent accommodation because I saw eight people sharing one room and also make sure that potholes are filled. We will also help widows," the politician said, in a similar style of promises made by his party just before the much-debated 2013 elections.
The leader of Johane Masowe Echishanu sect that worships at the car park, Madzibaba Spenlodge Madenyika, hailed the delegation for the surprise visit at their shrine.
"I want to thank you all for coming to our shrine and we are looking forward to the promises you made for us. It will be a good thing for us to call this place our own," he said.
Madzibaba Spenlodge also blasted a recent wave of xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
"Our church is against these xenophobic attacks as it is inhuman to attack another human being in your country. Gays and Lesbians are also not allowed in our church," said Madzibaba Spenlodge.
