Opinion: Chipanga says Mugabe liberated Zimbabwean like Jesus, I beg to differ!
Within the recent year, the biblical scent has been made around the Zimbabwean President Roberet Mugabe, by all his loyal cronies has praised him sky-high. Today isn’t anything new, but to show you how many who has made him holy, these is them: Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko, Preacher Nehemiah Mutendi, Zanu-PF Youth Leader Kudzai Chipanga and his First Lady wife Grace Mugabe. They have all placed him at the Pearly Gates, he has been as strong as Moses, been as the holy-men in scriptures. In the recent times he has been even said to be reigning in votes after his demise, clearly the loyalists and Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) are misusing the scripture and the christian faith to praise their President for life Mugabe.
Again, they have another dry-spell and has to misuse the bible to improve the legacy of the 93 year old, again it is the Zanu-PF Youth Leader Chipanga gone on his praising mission:
“Yes, President Mugabe’s middle name is Gabriel. He was given that name by the prophets after realising he has some resemblance” (…) “He is our Messiah, just like Jesus Christ when he liberated the world. Jesus, when he came, liberated the world and when President Mugabe came, he liberated us in this age . . . we honour God, then Jesus Christ and President Mugabe” (…) “And to you, senior leaders, don’t mistake the respect we have for you. Yes, we respect you, but when it comes to support, we support only one person in the party and that person is President Mugabe, not any other individual” (Jena, 2017).
Clearly, Zanu-PF Youth Leader Kudazai Chipanga should join a church, even learn some theology, even study the nature of the Christian faith. Before again utter words where he tries to put Jesus, the savior of all man-kind and the one that died for all sin. To be similar and the same liberation that Mugabe has given the Zimbabwean people. If he had really liberated them and given them a deserved liberty, than a giant section of people made the Citizen’s Manifesto, which clearly states the malfunctions and maladministration of the government under President Mugabe. Therefore, not so Jesus-y of Mugabe. Since cannot even give them proper liberty and a salvation from oppression. Peace.
