The AFM in Zimbabwe leader is the new vice president.

“It is an honour to be elected into the AFM international office as one of its bearers,” Madziyire told the Daily News.

“This is not an individual thing but an affirmation of the work that all at AFM in Zimbabwe are doing as servants of the Lord which this election has served to confirm.”

Madziyire’s election will further cement his stewardship of the Zimbabwean church which celebrated its centennial last year.

AFM in Zimbabwe are expecting 150 000 people at the AFM international conference which began in Harare on Monday but moved to their centre —  Rufaro Conference Centre — in Chartsworth, yesterday.
