UNITED Family International Church leader Emmanuel Makandiwa believes Zimbabweans do not appreciate and speak positively about all the infrastructure development being undertaken by President Mnangagwa’s government.
He was addressing congregants on Sunday at the Chitungwiza church where Zanu PF national political commissar, Mike Bimha and his wife had visited.
Makandiwa told congregants that citizens must market their country globally by sharing and appreciating the good developments being undertaken by the Government.
“You highlighted something which is very crucial, Dr Bimha that we have managed to stretch as a nation in terms of development,” he said.
“However, not much is being said concerning the developments taking place and we are behind in terms of marketing ourselves globally. There is a lot that has to be known about us.” Prophet Makandiwa
Makandiwa urged people to stop investing their energies in complaining but to open their eyes and see the good things being done by the Government.
He said while a country could be birthed in one day, it could not develop in a day.
Makandiwa said: “There are other things that still need to be addressed, but the Government has made a lot of notable developments from dam and road construction and airport expansion.”
He called upon the church to pray for Zimbabweans so they can begin to appreciate what the Government is doing.
“As men of God, we need to deal with the cloud that hovers around this country because if it is not removed, the citizens will remain under that cloud. There is need for prayer to be raised so that people can begin to appreciate good things,” said Makandiwa.
Further, it was the duty of the church to pray and support national leadership, especially since they have been acting upon some of the national prophecies he gave in the past.
In his remarks, Bimha said the Government was emphasizing economic development and that there was a lot that the nation could take pride in.
He implored Makandiwa and his ministry as well as other churches to continue praying for peace and unity in the country as it draws closer to the harmonized elections expected next year.
“Unity is what we seek from Prophet Makandiwa and your church, and we ask you to pray for us. It is through your prayers that we are still living in peace. Other countries have wars every time.
“Peace does not just come, it’s through your prayers. You might pray silently without making any noise about it, but we know that you pray for this country Prophet Makandiwa,” said the Zanu PF political commissar.
Bimha urged congregants to participate in the developmental programs being undertaken by the Government in different sectors of the economy.
“Despite battling with sanctions imposed upon us, we are still forging ahead. What we have as a nation are our resources, so let us unlock those resources. As individuals, take this opportunity to be in agriculture, mining, and other areas as it not only benefits your family, but the nation at large.
“President Mnangagwa pledges to support you in the business that you do as a ministry. He is looking at inclusive development leaving no place behind and on one behind regardless of political affiliation. Therefore, let’s walk together and develop our nation because we are all Zimbabweans.” Zanu-PF political commissar Mike Bimha
Bimha’s presence at the church followed an instruction by President Mnangagwa during his visit to the church during the Easter Holiday that he was supposed to frequently visit UFIC.
