Man of God Talent Chiwenga has responded to Minister of Home Affairs Kazembe Kazembe who issued a statement dismissing rumours of an imminent military coup in Zimbabwe and warning warned that those engaging in treasonous acts will be punished.
Kazembe said, “The Government of the Republic of Zimbabwe has noted, with grave concern, a recent upsurge in rumours suggesting an imminent military coup d`etat in the country,” said Minister Kazembe.
“The Government wanted through the agency of the Working Committee of the National Security Council, convened in terms of Section 209 of the constitution “to unequivocally debunk and dismiss these rumours with the contempt they deserve.”
Minister Kazembe said the committee had identified those behind the falsehoods and these included former senior Zanu-PF member Saviour Kasukuwere and MDC-Alliance deputy chairman Job Sikhala.
“Government would like to sternly warn purveyors of this medley of falsehoods, who include characters such as Saviour Kasukuwere, Job Sikhala and a coterie of their accomplices who we are aware of, not to cry foul when the long arm of Zimbabwean law catches up with them in due course,” said Minister Kazembe.
Some preachers provoking unrest through religious sermons were said to be part of the destabilisation agenda. They were part of a group of civil society players, diplomats, opposition politicians and online media platforms believed to have been recruited to push for an ill-fated National Transitional Authority.
“This narrative, which also sets an agenda for and promotes negative political activism, including coordinated fake abductions and media campaigns, has of late roped in several self-proclaimed local and international prophets. These include one US-based Nathan Humbryd of the so-called Miracle Ministries, Talent Chiwenga a self-styled rabid anti-Government Harare First Street preacher, Simon Chiloh of the so-called Deeds of Christ Ministries and a few others,” said Minister Kazembe.
Chiwenga told Kazembe that the long arm of the law must catch up with those who abused human rights in Zimbabwe during 2018 elections and January 2019 mass actions.
