'Pray without ceasing for peace and prosperity' argues Mnangagwa - no substitute for rule of law and competence

'Pray without ceasing for peace and prosperity' argues Mnangagwa - no substitute for rule of law and competence
Published: 10 February 2019 (458 Views)
"It is my singular honour and privilege to be with you at this timely breakfast prayer for our nation, even as the Bible exhorts us in Thessalonians 5 verse 17 to pray without ceasing. Constant interactions and prayer of this nature are positive and will help foster continued dialogue between Government, the church and all stakeholders. Such platforms under this anointing also help in uniting us as one people towards a common vision and shared national destiny," said Mnangagwa at the recent church and political leaders' prayer meeting.

"Let us therefore, continue to collectively work together towards uniting Zimbabwe for peace, love, harmony and prosperity to prevail in our nation. This platform further affords us the opportunity to brief each other on pertinent national developmental issues and nurture a common understanding of where we ought to go as a country and the steps we must take to get there."

This is utterly hopeless! He is a man who can quote chapter and verse of some of the less significant doctrines in the Bible but completely ignores one of the pillars - rule of law - repeated over and again in all the books of the Old and New Testament.
 
The Lord God instructed Moses that when the children of Israel walked out of their slavery, freeman and a free nation, they were to go to Mount Sinai where the Lord God were to give them laws, the Ten Commandments, by which they were to live.

When Jesus was asked which was the greatest Commandment. He replied "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbour as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments." Matthew 22: 37 - 40.

Where is the loving of thou neighbour when those in positions of power and authority abuse their power and turn lose their security forces on innocent and defenceless people like wolves in penned sheep. Zanu PF has systematically denied the people justice, their basic freedoms and rights including the right to a meaningful vote and even the right to life itself.

No one who fears God would take the Bible in their right hand and swear last July's elections were free, fair and credible. The authorities failed to release something as basic as a verified voters' roll although this is a requirement stipulated in our own constitution.
 
The barbaric violence by the security forces of 1st August 2018 and the two starting 14 January 2019 were meant to cow the people into subservient silence. Zanu PF is silencing people protesting the rigged elections, the worsening economic situation due to decades of gross mismanagement and rampant corruption by the regime.

"Today, the church must remain the voice that inculcates peace, building a better society, uniting families, tribes and races. The church must forever be 'the salt of the earth and the light of the world'. Yes, as the word of God says in Matthew 5 verse 13 to 16; "You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again?" continued Mnangagwa.

"It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot."

If the truth be said, after 38 years of corrupt and tyrannical Zanu PF rule; the party has lost its saltiness and should have been thrown out decades again if the regime had not usurped the people's free vote.

Zanu PF rigged last July's elections to stay in power and the party is now using brutal force to subdue a people desperate for meaningful change and a competent government. After 38 years of criminal waste of human and material resources through gross mismanagement and rampant corruption, there can be no doubt that Zanu PF is corrupt and incompetent.

What Zimbabwe needs and has been dying for, for decades, is rule of law; more specifically, free, fair and credible elections so the people can finally boot out the incompetent and corrupt Zanu PF regime and replace it with an accountable one. We need rule of law not endless dialogue and much less praying without ceasing.

God helps those who help themselves; God has already gifted Zimbabwe with the land and climate to grow crops and farm animals and with a great abundance of flora and fauna and mineral wealth. What exactly will we be praying ceaseless for? Zimbabwe's curse is one of bad governance and all we need to cure that is the enforcement of the rule of law and that no one is above the law.

Zanu PF rigged last July's elections, the party has no mandate to rule and therefore must step down. Why we need to talk about it much less pray ceaseless smacks of a nation that would do anything under than just to avoid dealing with the elephant in the room. After 38 years of Zanu PF corrupt and tyrannical rule and with the nation now standing on the very edge of the abyss Zimbabwe cannot afford to waste one more day of this misrule. Zanu PF must step down now!
