“Even top-ranking politicians in the ruling ZANU-PF, veterans of Zimbabwe’s liberation war and former Socialists, have turned to God, perhaps gaining new respect as men and women of the cloth. Vice-President Joseph Msika was recently ordained as a lay pastor in the Anglican Church; second Vice-President Joyce Mujuru was promoted to captain in the Salvation Army; two cabinet ministers have applied to train as priests.
Even Emmerson Mnangagwa, the powerful former intelligence chief backed by many to succeed President Robert Mugabe despite his repeated poor showing at the ballot box, has announced he was ‘born again’. “I think their consciences are troubling them. They have a lot of tension and stress because they have no idea which way the country should be driven,” suggested Prof Gordon Chavunduka, a sociologist and labour consultant.
It is difficult to escape Zimbabwe’s new religious revival. The two songs topping the current music chart are gospel tunes; evangelical preachers are on TV daily; political rallies, and even military parades, are now enlivened with songs of praise.” Source: http://gatewaypundit.blogspot.

Thank you for your article about Zimbabwean political leaders turning to God. I’m not aware of any Zimbabwean politician in the ruling government of Mugabe turning to God. They must stop playing with God. Why do they want to deceive people about what Christianity stand for? Christianity stands for our spiritual freedom that will lead us to freedom from dictatorship like that of President Robert Mugabe.
If these Zanu Pf leaders have truly repented they will pay restitution; righting all the wrong they have committed against people of Zimbabwe. l want to tell these oppressors to stop lying about God or receiving Christ as their personal savior. Stop oppressing the people of Zimbabwe, stop denying relief aid to starving Zimbabweans, stop destroying homes of MDC supporters, and relinquish power because you have failed your responsibility before God to protect people of Zimbabwe. Repent wicked politicians, God is going to destroy you for all the innocent blood- genocide of Ndebele people in 1983.
Zimbabwean political leaders have not truly repented. Every day there are starving innocent people, rigging elections, preventing distribution of relief aid to starving Zimbabweans. Genocide is taking place in Zimbabwe. People who have received Jesus Christ will abandon the privileges of King Pharoh or the privileges of President Robert Mugabe. Please don’t listen to these fake stories of communists, oppressor’s active enemies of God- Psalm 2
