Controversial street preacher, Talent Chiwenga over the weekend took jibes at Advocate Nelson Chamisa and his MDC Alliance party arguing that party is directionless and urged to “quit MDC-ALLIANCE”
The street preacher who for the years has courted controvesy for some of his utterances and prophesies said the MDC Alliance party leaders are in politics for financial gain.
In the sermon, Chiwenga alleged that the opposition MDC voted to impeach the late President Robert Mugabe in 2017 while forsaking their principles
“They trampled on the very principles which they say they stand for in their manifesto, and as their party ideology…Vaida zvigaro! They forgot the principles and they salivated for political positions, that’s a bad precedence.”
He further said that the opposition does not want to help the people of Zimbabwe, “…our problem is does the MDC have an interest in serving the people of Zimbabwe, or they only condemn ZANU PF because they themselves are not in power, because when something is wrong it should not be condemned by someone else, but when it is done by you it is fine, something that is wrong should be principally wrong across the board; so they and now complaining that the military and the police were involved in the factions that were in ZANU PF.”
Chiwenga who earned himself a name for attacking the ruling Zanu PF elites in his previous sermons.
“Our problem is in identifying our common goals as Zimbabweans, as for myself what I want is a peaceful environment and I think that is not an expectation that is far fetched, and far stretched, it is an institution and a constitutional expectation. We have to have a peaceful environment, as Zimbabweans it doesn’t matter who is our president, we don’t have much interest in that, we don’t care where you come from you come from Midlands or Manicaland,” he said.
Chiwenga’s weekend sermon was not the first he has ripped into Advocate Nelson Chamisa and his party .
Last year at one of his sermons , he ripped into Chamisa accusing him of dubbing into pastoralism and politics .
Chiwenga said :
“Munhu wese akuda kuita pastor naana Chamisa vese!…Whose Pastor can Chamisa be? I wish he would just leave the name of God alone and focus on politics because he lies a lot.He must stop playing with the name of God.”
