President Mnangagwa has engaged with various indigenous and Pentecostal church leaders who extended their congratulations to him for his victory and that of the ruling Zanu-PF party in the recent August 23 harmonized elections.

The church leaders, representing various denominations including the Roman Catholic Church, Apostolic Faith Mission in Zimbabwe, Vapostori, Zion4ED, Lutheran, African Apostolic Church Mwazha, were led by Reverend Andrew Wutawunashe, the chairman of the Zimbabwe Indigenous Inter-Denominational Council of Churches (ZIIC).

Prominent church figures like Zion Christian Church (ZCC) Bishop Nehemiah Mutendi and Vapostori and Zion4ED national executive chairperson Madzibaba Moses Gwasira were among those present at the meeting.
