The church has been commended for the critical role it continues to play in ensuring that peace and unity prevails as these are important elements in attracting investment for economic growth.

This was said by Vice President Kembo Mohadi during the Gospel of God Church conference attended by the church’s congregants from across the country and beyond the borders at Hannavale Farm in Figtree, Matabeleland South province.

Gracing this year’s meeting was Vice President Mohadi who took the opportunity to unpack President Emmerson Mnagagwa’s vision to attain a middle income economy status by 2030, saying this can only be achieved if there is unity of purpose among all Zimbabweans.

“This vision is a reflection of the aspirations of the people of Zimbabwe. I can assure you that our leader is very much committed to bringing this vision to fruition but he needs our support for it to succeed. For this vision to be realised, we need to be a united people and have a peaceful environment that will attract investors and promote business growth,” he said.

The church was also informed of efforts being made by the government in transforming tertiary institutions into industrial hubs, which will in turn promote innovation.

On the unfortunate events that took place in Manicaland province, Cde Mohadi thanked the church for coming out in full force to assist victims of Cyclone Idai, saying the nation should continue praying for the affected families.

“We appreciate the support rendered by the church during this difficult time and may you please continue offering prayers for the victims and that the Lord heals our nation from this scar,” the Vice President said.

The Gospel of God Church pledged their continued support for the government and the country’s political leadership.

“We are proud as a church that we are fully behind the government and we pledge to continue praying for our country and for our leaders so that they can turn Zimbabwe into a prosperous nation,” said Reverend Zara Nededzo.

The church also revealed plans to build a state of art school that will benefit the people of Hannavale and surrounding communities.

At the gathering, Vice President Mohadi officially opened the church’s Holy Sisters home.
