The government has pledged its support in facilitating the church to access land for infrastructure development.

This was said by Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa at a Methodist Church ceremony to welcome the new superintendent for Kuwadzana circuit.

Song and dance was the best gift the church could give to Vice President Mnangagwa, showing him their appreciation for visiting their church, whose Kuwadzana chapel is still under construction.

Cde Mnangagwa said the government prioritises churches in allocating land as they are a key partner in ensuring peace, security and development in the country.

This was after complaints by the church that it has become difficult to be allocated land by local authorities to build churches.

The ceremony was also attended by the Minister of State for Harare Metropolitan Province, Cde Miriam Chikukwa who underscored the need for churches to pray for the prosperity of the nation and its leaders.

The incoming Methodist Kuwadzana Circuit Superintendent, Reverend Victor Chidzambwa said the presence of the Vice President at the event is an honour to them.
