Church Leaders Rally Christians To Vote In Numbers

Church leaders have called for peaceful, free and fair elections pleading with the christian community and the nation at large to go out and vote in numbers.

Addressing a press conference in Harare on Thursday, Zimbabwe Divine Destine leader, Bishop Ancelimo Magaya said there is need to differentiate the 2018 plebiscite from the previous elections by voting in peace.

“We would like to inform the nation that the forthcoming elections can only be different if we all vote freely in peace but more importantly with a Godly conscience which behooves us to select leadership on Godly principle basis.

“An election is so critical that a voter ought to exercise his/her vote to determine and usher in the political changes necessary to move the nation forward, hence the need to demand certain values of conduct and discipline from political candidates and to those who govern us,” said Magaya.

Magaya dismissed the habit of putting the blame on sanctions for the country’s economic woes but rather start to work on changing it.

Zimbabwe Divine Destiny launched the ‘Christian vote campaign’ calling for Christians who are the majority population to determine who presides over the political office of this nation.

Magaya applauded church leaders such as Pastor Patrick Mugadza of the Remnant Church and Pastor Evan Mawarire who have been arrested for speaking out in defense of justice.
