Mnangagwa Urges Traditional Leaders To Put God First

Mnangagwa Urges Traditional Leaders To Put God First

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has urged traditional leaders to put God first for them to gain wisdom to rule their people.

Mnangagwa made the call while addressing people gathered to celebrate and pray for newly-installed Chief Negomo, real name Paradzai Kutyauripo, in Chiweshe on Saturday.

Kutyauripo is a brother to First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa.

The prayer service was led by Bishop Nehemiah Mutendi of the Zion Christian Church (ZCC).

Mnangagwa told the gathering that during biblical times, the reign of rulers who despised God did not last long. He said:

I am thankful for your coming, especially the ZCC, for coming to pray for my in-law. The word says, ‘Even when you were in your mother’s womb, I gave you what to do on the face of the earth’.

Do not be surprised by seeing Mr Kutyauripo being appointed chief here in Negomo’s area, the area of his ancestry.

It was written long before by God that is what he would do. He has had good fortune because he fears God.

He has been fortunate that a prophet of the Rozvis is praying for him.

This is a great thing. Each and every one, wherever you are seated with the work you do, appreciates that even before your birth God had known that this is what you would be today.

We never knew this day would come, but God knew it would.

Mnangagwa exhorted Chief Negomo to rule fairly and always exercise his duties in accordance with the Word of God.

He also called on church leaders to pray for the country’s leadership and peace.

President Mnangagwa’s son, Emmerson Junior, the First Lady, and other senior Government officials attended the ceremony.

The name of God is often abused, even by con-men who are also called Prophets & pastors. To the Devil-Worshipper - Satan is god. To the Chinese - Dragons are gods. The Tonga people worship the mythical Nyami Nyami Serpent as their god. To ED, Nehanda Nyaka**** is a goddess. We saw him erecting an idol in Harare & kneeling before the effigy & worshipping it. We are not sure which god he is reffering to because there is one Supreme God/Jehovah and there are gods, some of them are idol gods. Politicians will say whatever is suitable for the occassion to deceive the gullible crowds.

some say God is the manifestation of laws of physics...

Worzell Gummidge 3 weeks ago

... The laws of physics are the manifestation of God's power & principles. Physics cannot define God but God created physics & established the principles of physics thereof. Study sub-atomic physics & you will understand why many Physicists believe in an eternal force called God the created of the Universe.

I remember this "gentleman" (and I use the word loosely for a gentleman he ain't), saying at inauguration in November 2017, "Vox populi, vox Dei " (Latin for "The voice of the people is the voice of God"). The same "gentleman" went on to shoot his "God" in August 2018 and January 2019.

I wonder which God he is talking about now?

Words of Wisdom from the President.

It is very true that with God things do not just happen — they are well planned.

God planned for Moses to lead the children of Israel out out Egypt, but the same and only God planned also to harden Pharaoh's heart so he wouldn't let the Israelites go.

It's all in God's control but woe to those that are destined for doom — the likes of Judas Iscariot.

Yes, traditional leaders should put God first, not men. Ane nzeve dzokunzwa ngaanzwe.

Men subvert the will of God. Electoral theft is not part of God's plan. The Devil inspires our leaders, who after rigging elections will silence you by pervating the word of God - saying it was God's will. I get the sense that nepotism took centre stage in the coronation of this Chief who is Auxilia's brother. Collins Mnangagwa was unprocedurally promoted to Major in the army through nepotism. But some empty headed fool will tell you it was God's plan. No it's nepotism.

Thank you for letting citizens know that our First Lady Auxilia Mnangagwa is sister to the current Chief Negomo, born Paradzai Kutyauripo. Where is Fortune Chasi ? I also heard that he is related to the First Lady.
