CONTROVERSIAL businessman Wicknell Chivayo has added a posh Rolls Royce to his top of the range fleet.
Chivayo shared on social media a video of his church elder blessing the new vehicle in London captioned: “vaive varombo vacha pfuma nekunamata“.
Meanwhile, the businessman bought his church leader madzibaba Lawrence Lavious Katsiru a 2023 Toyota Hilux GR Sport and also handed his wife a 2023 Toyota Fortuner VX gift a fortnight ago.
The combined price of the two vehicles must be about US$132 000 before duty is paid.
Chivayo is a member of the Johane Masowe eChishanu church. In videos posted by Chivayo, his followers feel the same cars are a thank you gift for prayers granted over his trying period leading to a recent court victory.
The businessman, together with his company Intratrek Zimbabwe (Pvt) Limited was recently acquitted of misappropriating US$5,6 million for the 100MW Gwanda Solar Project.
Seemingly still in a celebratory mood, Chivayo posted:
“Chinotanga itsitsi nerudo kozouya kunamata. As a small way of celebrating Easter, I decided to buy my church leader and his beautiful wife brand new cars.
“A 2023 Toyota Hilux and 2023 Toyota Fortuner VX, never be fooled or misled by anyone who tells you church is free or zvaMwari ndezvee mahara.
“In our church the Holy Spirit always speaks about loving one another and the power of giving, even in the Holy Bible scripture speaks about love, forgiveness and sharing.
“All you can see in these videos is sincere celebration, love and happiness,” reads parts of the post.
The businessman claims church leaders must be taken care of at all cost.
“Our Churches are a success because they are led and run by committed and devoted leaders.
“No harm in doing your best where you can to always look after them.
“Ukaona iwe uine munda wemotokari, mutungamiri weku church kwako kana pastor, kana priest vachifamba ne mountain bike kana ne tsoka ziva kuti iwewe hausati waziva chinonzi kunamata.
“From the bottom of my heart, I say congratulations to you Mr Lawrence Lavious Katsiru and Mrs Violet Katsiru. Mwari akuchengetei murambe muchiti tungamirira ku Johane Masowe.
Marondera branch, muzita rake baba nere mwana komana nere mweya mutsvene . . . AMEN . . . ” reads the post.
