Catholic Bishop Criticises Govt's "Terrible Proposition To Turn Civilian Doctors Into Soldiers"

Catholic Bishop Criticises Govt's

Catholic Diocese of Chinhoyi cleric, Bishop Raymond Mpandasekwa, has criticised the government over several issues including its “terrible proposition to turn our civilian doctors into soldiers” saying the state will be left without doctors.

The clergyman has in previous years clashed with the government over his hard stance against alleged misrule which he said was characterised by violence, injustice, corruption, and bloodshed.

In an audio recording of his recent Sunday sermon posted on Facebook, Mpandasekwa laments the wanton killing of members of the opposition and attempts to militarise the medical profession. Mpandasekwa said:

They bring bloodshed, they kill, instead of freedom they bring imprisonment to those who oppose them, those who think differently, to those who disagree with their policies.

The only thing they know is violence. These people bring bloodshed, that lacking in integrity, they are dishonest.

All they bring is nothing but distress … what greater distress was brought upon us when the plight of our doctors was, a few days ago, responded to by a terrible proposition to turn our civilian doctors into soldiers, who will from then on go by instruction.”

Indeed, the freedom party refuses to give freedom of choice by refusing to listen to the cries of the distressed doctors.

Instead, they propose more distress. We are now heading to become a State with no doctors as this unconstitutional proposition is a destruction of the medical practice as we know it.

Through our policies, our situation will not only get worse, the poor are always the victims.

When bishops question the capacity and emotional stability of the government, we are accused of insulting the Office of the President.

The governed are being insulted everyday by the same people, through their careless utterances and disregard for the Constitution.

Living for justice is dangerous, for we live in a country that refuses to deliver justice. Our children are not going to school, except a few lucky ones.

He added that the sick were not being treated in hospitals due to the government’s bad policies. 

Mpandasekwa added that the ruling ZANU PF instils fear in the public through state institutions such as the police, the army and the judiciary.

The Roman Catholic Church has a good track record of standing up for justice. Through the CCJP (Catholic Commission for Justice & Peace) they documented & condemned the Gukurahundi atrocities in Matabeleland in the early 1980s.

Catholic organisations such as the Catholic Relief Services (CRS), CARITAS & many others feed hungry Zimbabweans and people starved by evil politicians all over the world. Organizations like AFCAST (African Forum for Catholic Social Teachings) advocate for observance of human rights and the Rule of law as Godly principles that promote social justice & heavenly peace on earth.

Kwete church dzema Conmen anofamba nemhondi dzeZANU PF. They collect duffle bags of money from their gullible followers & buy themselves houses in SA, build personal palaces, buy themselves AMGs, Aston Martins, Bentleys & Maybachs. Such Hustler preachers & counterfeit prophets register the church & it's assets as in their own names as their personal property.

One such conman was given mining concessions & a farm for his father. Now he sells his father's tomato's in church at exhorbitant prices. Calling them anointed tomatoes. You will hear them heaping praises on idol worshiping politicians who dabble in all sorts of ungodly practices such as murder, abduction, corruption, necromancy, divination, adultery & electoral theft.

Whereas the Catholic Church calls a spade a spade.

@pastor vara rekuti Bishop ririmo mu Bible check the following verses. Ini church ndakarega ndaona kuti ma pastor Bible hamuverenge and hamurinzwisise. Ndini wenyu Muhedheni.
Acts 1:20 For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take.
Philippians 1:1 Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons
1 Timothy 3:1 This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.
1 Timothy 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach
Titus 1:7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre
1 Peter 2:25 For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

It is now almost mandatory for all graduating medical doctors to be "indirectly in the army" before they can get any government employment. Commander in Health Chiwenga and Health Commodore Chimedza came up with one not long ago. So it is no longer a choice as such.

Let the Catholic Diocese of Chinhoyi, Bishop Raymond Mpandasekwa spew it all.

What is so good about soldiering ? Is it because [ VANHINGI VAIMBENGE VARI MUSOJA, VACHIZODII MBERI ? ].

There was a misposting at the Healthcare Ministry which drove most doctors out of the country. Now the powers that be want to turn every doctor into a soldier. Does that make any sense ? I know that there are doctors in the army who joined by their volition and not by force.

[ KANA IMI VANHINGI MAIMBENGE MURI MUSOJA, GARAI MAKADARO NEHUSOJA HWENYU IHWOHWO ].

[ ISU TOGARAWO TICHITENGESA MADOMASI, MABANANA NEMA VEGETABLES ].

[ LET ALL CITIZENS VOTE FOR CCC POLITICAL PARTY FOR REAL CHANGE].

Yours faithfully
