Indigenous churches say they support the new government led by President Emmerson Mnangagwa whom they believe in to revive the economy.

President Mnangagwa was sworn in last week after winning the July 30 elections and local churches are right behind him.

In an interview with the ZBC News on the sidelines of their victory celebrations for President Mnangagwa’s inauguration in Harare today, leader of Johane Masowe Nyenyedzinomwe Apostolic Church, Madzibaba Enock Senda said Zimbabwe is going to realize economic growth and recovery in the hands of President Mnangagwa.

“President Mnangagwa has been chosen by God to lead this country and we support him,” he said.

At a similar event in Epworth, Arch Bishop Afraid Nechikwira of the Zion Sabata Apostolic Church said they appreciate what the government is doing in allowing indigenous   churches freedom of worship, while the overseer of the Apostolic Christian Council of Zimbabwe, Leonard Kavhu said they are looking forward to seeing all the plights of churches being addressed by the new government.

Churches have been regarded as a tool in nation building through praying for peace and leaders.
