Apostolic Christian Council of Zimbabwe (ACCZ) president Archbishop Johannes Ndanga has urged churches to rally behind President Mnangagwa, saying God has bestowed in him the ideas that he is implementing in turning around the country's economy. He said those who were agitating for the removal of a constitutionally elected Government should know that they are wasting their time as leaders were appointed by God.

Addressing mourners at the burial of United Apostolic Church Independent Church of God (UAFICG) leader Archbishop Chiutsi Zihowa Motsi in Mt Darwin on Sunday, Archbishop Ndanga said churches should play a leading role in preaching peace and order to maintain the tranquillity that has existed in the country since independence in 1980. Archbishop Motsi collapsed and died at his rural home in Manhondo village, Mt Darwin, last week.

He was 108 years. "Ecumenical boards should be an exemplary in rallying behind President Mnangagwa's Government," said Archbishop Ndanga.

"We all believe that leaders are appointed by God, so why should we dispute what God has ordained through the use of stayaways that degenerate into violence.

"Leadership is a calling from God, President Mnangagwa was ordained to lead the country, and everything which is required for economic renaissance has been bestowed in him."

Archbishop Ndanga expressed concern over some clerics fanning violent demonstrations under the guise of peaceful protests.

"A divinely anointed leader is the right person to deal with the challenges," he said.

"Let us support the legitimate Government and as churches we denounce demonstrations.

"President Mnangagwa is everyone's President, even the MDC Alliance members, because he is the national leader. The opposition party and its leadership should submit to the current Government."
