Chamisa prays for violence victims

HARARE - MDC leader Nelson Chamisa on Friday visited hospitals to see victims of the violence that took place during the recent three-day stay-away, which claimed the lives of at least 12 people, according to civil society organisations.

Scores of people were injured during the disturbances that took place on January 14,15 and 16, 2019. 

Chamisa visited Belvedere Medical Centre and laid hands on them, wishing them a quick recovery. 

He bemoaned the situation in the country in a Twitter post.

“Our country is going through one of its worst moments. My thoughts are with the victims of violence. Despite the vitriol, we maintain a dignified position befitting our role as led by the people. We remain committed to peace in solving the challenges that triggered the turmoil,” he said.

The party’s MP for Kuwadzana East constituency Chalton Hwende also spoke about Chamisa’s visit to hospitals.

“The president has just finished another round of visit to the injured and prayed for every patient he visited,” he said.

Meanwhile, Chamisa also visited families that lost their beloved ones in Chitungwiza yesterday to pay his condolences.

If I were him as a pastor, I would visit the innocent victims of the looters before I visit the looters who were unfortunate to face the wrath of the law.

@John Sigauke -agree with your statement fully. Chamisa thinks the victims of looters can only be ZANU and all those who stayed home during the stayaway are MDCA! Those who brutalized innocent people are the ones he is rushing to thank for a job well done!! WHAT A LEADER!! or " WHAT A PASTOR"! Can only be the DEVIL HIMSELF!!

More of grandstanding rather than anything else. If Chamisa would respectfully engage President Mnangagwa to address the anarchy and economic meltdown of Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe desperately needs real leaders not thespians
