 PASTORS DETAINED BY POLICE IN NYANGA AFTER ATTENDING A PRAYER MEETING ORGANISED BY TRANSFORM ZIMBABWE

Bishop Nerwande of Holy Cross church in Mangongondoza township together with his associate pastors Mr and Mrs Makawamadze were detained by police in Nyanga yesterday, after attending a prayer meeting organised by Transform Zimbabwe. The men of cloth were detained for more than 4 hours during which they were subjected to unwarranted interrogation. Their alleged involvement and any involvement of their church members in Transform Zimbabwe affairs and structures were thoroughly quizzed. The necessary condition for the establishment of a democracy involves securing an equal distribution of political power and voice among all citizens. Transform Zimbabwe seeks to awaken the hitherto inconspicuous but game changing voice of the church in Zimbabwean politics through enlightening the church of its role in the political discourse, as the party was founded from a prayer organisation.

Police and CIOs also nicodemously abducted a member of Transform Zimbabwe, Mrs Pauline Mutasa, form her house on the 20th of June at 2200hrs in Nyanga. The member had been active in spearheading a well-attended meeting which was held in Nyanga on the 19th of June 2014. Her whereabouts were only confirmed this morning. The abduction had left her 9yr old child alone, traumatised, confused and vulnerable in the cold of the winter night as she is the sole guardian. Sgt Rushwaya, head of peace department at Nyanga Police station could not immediately reveal the reasons for detaining Mrs Mutasa. Mrs Mutasa, a teacher at a local school, expressed shock and dismay at the abduction and denies any wrong-doing. Transform Zimbabwe members in Nyanga are currently living in fear of further reprisals after the successful hosting of TZ meetings in the area.

It has been a hectic past couple of weeks for Transform Zimbabwe characterised by successful grassroots efforts ironically rewarded by abductions, harassment and interrogation in areas like Binga, Nyanyadzi, Chimanimani and most recently in Nyanga.

 It has been a hectic past couple of weeks for Transform Zimbabwe characterised by successful grassroots efforts ironically rewarded by abductions, harassment and interrogation in areas like Binga, Nyanyadzi, Chimanimani and most recently in Nyanga. Transform Zimbabwe has been   blazing the campaign trail in the eastern districts of Zimbabwe covering from small towns to the remotest and neglected regions of the country with meetings held in Rusitu, Checheche, Nhedziwa, Chibuwe, Buhera, Nyanyadzi, Bocha, Mutasa, Nyanga, Mutare urban and Rusape amongst the many other areas covered.

Transform Zimbabwe unequivocally condemns the persistent harassment by state security agents on those working peacefully towards national renewal and recovery based on tolerance, human rights, democracy, and the rule of law. Transform Zimbabwe is once again challenging the police to conduct themselves in a non-partisan and professional manner, and live up to their Constitutional duty to protect all citizens irrespective of their gender, ethnic origin, or political affiliation.

    Carry on ZPF because now nearly everything you doing is going to bring God’s wrath down on your heads. You have been warned for a long time now and you stubbornly persist in your evil ways. God is watching. Judgment is coming. Repent!

    You see if we start regulating churches we might as well regulate how much liquor we imbibe or pour on the ground to appease our ancestors…………..I think a columnist in The Standard of last week said that….think about it.

    Transform Zimbabwe,go ahead. We believe that only leaders whose inner spiritual transformation is evident in both their family and public life should be entrusted with holding public office . To put the world in order,we must first put the nation in order; to put nation in order,we must put the family in order;to put family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; And to cultivate our personal life ,we must first set our hearts straight…….. POLICE MURIPABASA BUT ITAI MUCHIZIVA KUTI MURIKUTAMBA NAMWARI.

    I have had a chance to see TZ in action and I am beyond conviction that they will be the only viable force remaining to takes to a new Zimbabwe and to bring back the Zimbabwean dream. The other parties have issues and are fast loosing people’s confidence.
    Im going with TZ. This continued persecution is a clear indication that TZ has got Zodiac attention and they are scared to death….keep going Jacob Ngarivhume

      Hi Petal, I am not a Catholic, but dont judge the catholics by the dealings of the brute…he is a satanist by all means and hides behind this religeous banner. Mugabe is a member of the cult of the freemasons, as was Nelson Mandella who was a 33rd degree freemason, and most leaders of countries have masonic dealings which are in line with the illuminati and one world government.The Freemasons and the Shriners believe they are in controll BUT have not counted on the return of Christ! SOON!

        yep Reverend. The truth has a way of coming out; doesn’t it. It is indeed un ugly picture. Now we know who really rules Zimbabwe. The true church must intercede. The devil-the head of Free Masonry is a defeated foe. We must KNOW this! “And they came and took possession of it-the land- but they have not obeyed Your voice or walked in Your law. They have done nothing at all that You have commanded them to do. Therefor You have caused all this calamity to come upon them. Jeremiah 32:23 The church in Zimbabwe must rise up, repent and intercede. This evil over this nation MUST be broken in prayer. repentance is the key. When we repent the devil loses all legal ground in our lives. Repent!

    If we all think Zimbabwe will change think again. This ma hypocrite of a man named Bob went to Rome to ask the devil himself to bless him so he could commit more evil crimes.
