Zanu PF says it is willing to work with indigenous churches that support the principles of territorial integrity and self determination as demonstrated by apostolic sects before, during and after independence.
Addressing members of the Johanne Masowe Wechishanu Apostolic sect in Harare, Zanu PF Political Commissar, Cde Webster Shamu said the party cherishes the virtues of honesty, integrity and other principles that promote the total liberation of the majority preached by indigenous churches such as the apostolic sects.
“The conduct by members of the sect that promote moral uprightness and allegiance to the government of the day should be taught to all, so that the country is not returned back to the former colonisers,” said Cde Shamu.
A member of the sect, Madzibaba David Chikobvu said the church supports fully the revolutionary principles of Zanu PF and the leadership of the Head of State and Government and Commander-in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence forces, whose mandate to rule Zimbabwe came from God.
The apostolic sect is one of the major religious institutions in the country which promote self determination and self reliance, the same principles espoused by Zanu PF under the leadership of Cde Mugabe.
The leadership of the sect also took the opportunity to brief the Zanu PF leadership on the various challenges faced especially in acquiring stands in the capital.
Politburo Member, Cde Charles Tawngewa and Harare Provincial Chairman, Ambassador Amos Midzi were among the party leadership that attended the church service.
