BULAWAYO Provincial Affairs minister Eunice Sandi Moyo has joined the ranks of many Zanu PF officials in deifying President Robert Mugabe, claiming he was God ordained and opposition parties will continue to bark, but will never rule this country.
Speaking at the ordination ceremony of 43 bishops from different denominations under the Apostolic Christian Council of Zimbabwe (ACCZ) at the Large City Hall yesterday, Moyo said God was the one who chose leaders.
“Mugabe was chosen to lead this country, whether you want or don’t want,” she said.
“Opposition parties will oppose until they become old, as they are opposing the will of God.
“If you are in opposition, you will always be barking. Who are you to oppose those who have been chosen by God?”
Moyo said Zanu PF was the chosen one and not opposition parties.
“Zanu PF is the one which has been chosen by God and will never stop and will continue ruling,” she said.
“We have come a long way with people trying to destroy Zimbabwe, but God is in control.
“God put a river that the opposition will never cross.”
Moyo said opposition parties wanted democracy, but could not fulfil it themselves.
“The opposition parties have been divided because there is no democracy which they always say our party does not have,” she continued.
“Their leader does not want to step down from leadership.”
Moyo accused Morgan Tsvangirai of being a traitor because of money he was being given by whites and Western nations.
“Yesterday we were talking together, but as Judas Iscariot, just because of money he now wants the whites to rule this country,” she said.
“We fought for liberation and said the whites should not lead us. But God is saying no, nothing will ever happen. In 2013 we won the elections and this showed that God is with us.”
Moyo said they will include churches in this year’s independence celebrations.
“We realised that churches should be included in State celebrations as they are the ones who support us,” she said.
Speaking at the same occasion, ACCZ president archbishop Johannes Ndanga said people should stop abusing the First Family.
“We do not want the First Family to be abused and people should not speak about the First Lady,” he said.
First Lady Grace Mugabe has reportedly been taken ill and is in Dubai.
A number of Zanu PF officials have recently compared Mugabe to God, with party political commissar Saviour Kasukuwere describing the long-time leader as “our god”.
The late former Harare mayor, Tony Grara once infamously said Mugabe was God’s other son.
