Presenting the certificate of acknowledgement to Mambo Dhuterere at the Council for Churches in Africa, Harare chapter launch on Saturday, its president Bishop Dr Ricky Moyo heaped praises on the burly musician for being principled.
“One thing we cant take away from Baba Dhuterere is how he has managed to keep a cool head in an industry where most celebrities have fallen because of immorality.
” As CCA we feel proud of him for being a loving husband to his wife and continuing to excel in his musical journey. This is the reason why we bestow this certificate to him as an acknowledgement of the sterling work he is doing,” said Dr Ricky Moyo.
Earlier on, the artiste born Darlington Mutseta proved why he is now a force to reckon with on the music scene.He belted some of his hits that include Mweya Ndisesekedze and Ndiringe leaving congregants clamouring for more.
Meanwhile, Bishop Dr Ricky Moyo revealed that his organisation is not relenting on fighting child-marriages and drug abuse among youths.
“CCA would like to end child-marriages which are rife among some of our churches.
” We also want to fight drug abuse which is wreaking havoc among our youths, “he added.
The organisation has also committed to work with the government in developmental projects and this was echoed by the host, Madzibaba Enock (Herbert Masenda) of the Johanne Masowe Chishanu Nyenyedzi Nhomwe.
“We are solidly behind and partnering the current government,” revealed Madzibaba Enock.
The CCA Zimbabwe chapter was launched in April but currently boasts of a membership of over 2000 churches.
Among the delegates at the launch was Federation for Indigenous Churches in Zimbabwe (FICZ) president Sydney Mabhiza of St John Apostolic Church of the Whole World , his secretary general Mathias Reverend Tsine and the entire CCA executive.
