Church leaders in Chitungwiza have urged members of the public to heed the call by the three principals in the Global Political Agreement for peace and tolerance during the outreach phase of the constitution-making process that has kicked off across the country.Â
As part of events to commemorate Zimbabwe Assemblies of God Africaâ€™s Golden Jubilee, women church leaders affiliated to the ZAOGA church in Chitungwiza organized a march around the surburb, which culminated in celebrations at Makoni Shopping Centre.
According to some of the organizers of the event – Overseer Angeline Chabarwa and Pastor Mary Moyana, christians from various denominations were invited as part of efforts by the church to spread the gospel of peace and tolerance.
Overseer Chabarwa said as the constitution outreach program gets underway across the country, peopleÂ should heed the call made by the three principals during the launch of the outreach program.
Head of the Zaoga church in Chitungwiza, Overseer Cosmas Chabarwa commended the government of Zimbabwe for respecting the church, adding that ZimbabweansÂ should take the opportunity presented by the drafting of a new constitution to denounce homosexuality.
The march, which was punctuatedÂ by sounds of vuvuzelas, is one of several events that have been lined up across the country and will culminate in international celebrations that will be held in August to mark ZAOGAâ€™s 50 years of existence.
