ATTENTION SEEKING preacher, Evan Mawarire has scorned his critics who have often branded him a coward for skipping the country at the height of a State backlash on organisers of a wave of citizen protests that unsettled the government a year ago.

According to, Pastor Mawarire went on to fire a salvo at his church colleagues who continued to turn a blind eye to the excesses of the current Zanu-PF regime.

He was speaking during a panel discussion at Dr Ibbo Mandaza's SAPES Trust on Thursday, just under three days before he was picked up at his Harare church by police on Sunday under different circumstances.

"If you look at the history of the struggle, there is no one who never gotten to a point of running away," Mawarire said.

The #ThisFlag founder said even his tormentor; President Robert Mugabe, at one time skipped the country during the liberation struggle.

This he said was also common with former Vice President Joshua Nkomo and MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai have also fled for safer foreign territories before and under the Zanu PF government.

Mawarire had no kind words either for the local church he said has continued to draw back from anything that could invite State fury.

He accused the Church of being divided and corrupt and 'must clean itself up.'
