via Religious tourism hailed – DailyNews Live by Helen Kadirire 22 OCTOBER 2013
Bishop Climate Irungu, founder of World Conquerors Christian Centre, has lauded Tourism minister Walter Mzembi for gunning for the introduction of religious tourism in Zimbabwe.
The London-based bishop told a news conference called by Miriam Chikukwa, minister of State for Harare province at Munhumutapa Building yesterday that Mzembi’s idea was noble and a first of its kind. He urged authorities to take the idea seriously.
“When I was speaking to the Tourism minister, he mentioned religious tourism so that people would come to Zimbabwe and experience the beauty of the country while worshipping,” Irungu said.
“That’s a great idea.”
Irungu, who is also the spiritual father to Chikukwa, said he was very proud of his “spiritual daughter.”
Irungu said since his visit to Zimbabwe, President Robert Mugabe’s government has afforded him freedom of speech and freedom of worship.
He said if the righteous rule, the people will rejoice. He said it was time the people of Zimbabwe rejoiced in their current leadership.
