Scores of Apostolic Faith Mission followers thronged AFM Mount Carmel Church in Unit P Chitungwiza to mourn the Evangelist Phanuel Dzangare Chiweshe who died Tuesday night at Parirenyatwa Hospital in Harare.
This strong rebuking voice is no more! Evangelist Chiweshe succumbed to a kidney failure.
Famed for taking Christâ€™s gospel to another level in Zimbabwe, Evangelist Chiweshe was consistent and gave preaching a new meaning.
He was one of the pioneers of the Apostolic Faith Mission in Zimbabwe and a great mentor to many modern day pastors.
Brother and family spokesperson, Mr. Israel Dzangare said his family has been robbed of a pillar of strength and without him life will never be the same.
AFM in Zimbabwe Secretary General, Reverend Amon Madawo said Evangelist Chiwesheâ€™s death has robbed his church of a mentor and adviser. He likened the role that the late Evangelist played to a roof that shielded and protected the AFM church.
United Family International leader, Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa and Heartfelt Ministries International founder, Apostle Tavonga Vutabwashe who were mentored by the veteran Evangelist early in their missions also expressed sadness at the death of Evangelist Chiweshe.
A principled man of God who was not disrupted from his mission by the love of money, Evangelist Chiweshe died at a time he was preaching at an AFM crusade in Mabelreign.
Only last week, ZBC News interviewed him and he spoke his mind on the so-called prosperity gospel.
Famed for his sermons such as Kana Zvamubata and Baba VeBenzi among others, Evangelist Chiweshe suffered from a kidney failure two years ago and had been going through dialysis since then.
He will be buried at Warren hills cemetery on Friday.
