Chinotimba appeals to Makandiwa

HARARE - Buhera South Zanu PF member of Parliament Joseph Chinotimba yesterday made a passionate plea for assistance from the United Family International Church (UFIC) to complete the  construction of a clinic in his constituency.

This comes after the Emmanuel Makandiwa-led church through its Agape Family Care Charity arm, last December, conducted hundreds of free eye cataract surgeries in Buhera, Chipinge and Chimanimani.

On average, the cost of cataract operation on both eyes costs between $2 000 to $3 000 in Zimbabwe, which is far out of reach for the impoverished rural folk.

Chinotimba made the appeal when he attended yesterday’s service to thank Makandiwa for helping people who had eyesight problems in his constituency.

Citing the scripture 1 Timothy 5:8, Chinotimba said, “Kana munhu asingachengeti hama dzake, uye zvikuru sei veimba yake, arasa kutenda, uye akaipa kukunda asingatendi. (But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.)

“I would want to thank the prophet for what he did to people in my constituency. I didn’t have to read the Bible that people can have their eyesight restored but I saw it for myself,”  Chinotimba said.

He added that he had pioneered the construction of a clinic in the area but work had stalled because of shortage of resources.

“You know, in Buhera we have so many problems from the issues of hyenas, famine and just a few days ago another person was bitten by a snake and died because the clinic is very far.

“So, I had initiated a project to construct a clinic but the project has come to a standstill at roofing level that is also why I have come to appeal to the prophet so that he might help us complete it.”

I was amazed at Chinotimbas' understanding of the Prophetic and worshiping in general......Very clever

Hands up to Cde Chinotimba. At least we have an honourable member who can honour the works of other great man like Prophet Makandiwa. You demonstrated that you are more educated compared to the other so-called educated fools. How you explained the fact that God always give people a man who can lead others to him was so profound and inspired. Even those other so called "man of God" cannot explicitly explain it the way you did. keep it up Chinoz

This man of God is just a cut above the rest, not seeking to compare but just to put facts in place. Criticised left right and center and yet he remains resolute in discharging his God given mandate, to shepherd the flock. What I see is a flock well fed in the fold and a sheep well fed out of the fold. Hundreds of thousands outside of his church are benefiting in various ways and this is just but one. All I can say is for critics to be sober for once and consider the works of this man and woman of God. These are your parents, relatives and friends that you were either failing to take care of or had just neglected that he has remembered. Hats off to you Prophet Makandiwa.

Thank you Prophet and Mhamha Makandiwa, may your God grant you many more year. If only we could have maybe just two genuine man and woman of God like you, Zimbabwe will never be the same.

This is what churches are for? Helping the need. Some think these prophets wants to milk money from people. Chionai the good works being done by the so called "prosperity teachers". Health is prosperity and prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa gave prosperity to the blind.

Man has gotten rich on the backs of the poor and gullible Zimbo. He gives them a few crumbs and its, "hey, what a great guy". Sucks big time. Where is our government in all this, anyway? Busy selling the country's assets to the Chinese and lining their pockets, is where.

I THANK THE PROPHET OF GOD PROPHET E. & PROPHETESS R. MAKANDIWA FOR HEALTH RESTORATION TO THE CDE CHINOS' CONSTITUENCY. I SALUTE CDE CHINOS FOR BEING HUMBLE AND THANKFUL. IT TAKES LOT OF WISDOM FOR POLITICIANS TO APPRECIATE AND GIVE THANKS TO WHAT CHURCHES ARE DOING IN THE SOCIETY. MANY SERVICES ARE BEING DELIVERED TO THE SOCIETY BY UFIC BUT THIS ONE WAS BROUGHT TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC BECAUSE OF CDE CHINOTIMBA'S HUMBLE CHARACTER.. MORE DIVINE YEARS TO THE PROPHET AND FAMILY AND UFIC AT LARGE. MAY GOD BLESS OUR CDE AND HIS POLITICAL AREA...

Thank you man of God for helping the needy and the society at large. You don't blow a trumpet when you help people. Its good Chinotimba came back himself to thank. We did not even know UFIC did such works. We know there are many things you do behind the scenes to help the needy. May God continue to bless you prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa
