The institution of the church has promised to take a leading role in ensuring that there is peace among Zimbabweans in the lead up-to-the harmonised elections set for this year.

The church plays a critical role in the social, political and economic transformation of any country and has vowed to make sure that Zimbabweans observe peace in the lead up to the harmonised elections set later for this year.

The church organisation has also advised Zimbabweans to desist from violence despite their differing political views and affiliations.

The meeting held today in Dzivarasekwa was aimed at discussing ways in which the church and community can work closely with the political leadership in Dzivarasekwa to develop communities in which they serve.
