ED promises free land to churches

HARARE - President Emmerson Mnangagwa has promised to dish out free land to churches in a move likely to be seen as a tactic to sway the electorate ahead of the forthcoming general elections.

Traditionally, Zanu PF — even during deposed Robert Mugabe’s time — has appealed to churches during election season.

Mnangagwa made the promise after church leaders demanded free residential and church stands at a meeting held in Harare yesterday, with the leader of the Apostolic Christian Council of Zimbabwe Johannes Ndanga leading the call.

Likening Mnangagwa to the Biblical Joshua who led the Israelites to the land of Canaan from Egypt after taking over from Moses, Ndanga said Mnangagwa’s administration should give free land to domestic churches as the white colonial governments did to missionary churches before independence.

if my memory serves me right Ndanga was there when Grace Mugabe made her last rally spewing near vulgar in a church robe. ED beware because this guy does not the spirit of a Seer because he was supposed to see that Grace's days were numbered, I hope ED will rely on his svikiro called Jah Prayzah who seem to have clarity on the future more than this Ndanga guy.
