What l dont understand though is why would a true man of God associate himself with fraudsters like Kasukuwere to the extend of by-passing Council jurisdiction when he wants land .
In certain countries it’s called “State Capture ” , when one uses Cabinet Ministers to embezzle State Properties and resources. We all know the procedures when one wants land in Zimbabwe ; it starts by being included on a waiting list (because there are already thousands of Zimbabweans who also want residential stands ) and then when Council allocate land , your name will be considered .
This thing of visiting Ministers in their houses and ask for what we want in blatant disregard of The Constitution and Urban Council by – laws is what makes some of us remain with our ancestors instead of going to these so called churches .
This use of Executive authority by Prophets and Pastors and Bishops to get what they want even if it means going against the law did not start with Magaya . This thing started with Zaoga when Mugabe , using Presidential decree (the World’s oldest authotarian order ) , ordered that Council give Bindura land to Zaoga against a High Court order . When we complained here that the President was setting a very dangerous precedent where every Pastor and Prophet would try try to get whatever they want from the Executive even if it’s unlawful , we were called “satanists ” , ” people who need God ” . We were told that God does wonders abd sometimes he uses those corrupt people for the benefit of his church.
I raised red flag then and will raise it again now but it’s too late for Zimbabwe . Mugabe can’t overturn Kasukuwere decision to sell land to Magaya when when he himself authorised the transfer of land to Zaoga against a Court Ruling . And again no Zaoga member has any right or power to question Magaya actions because their Church leader did exactly the same by asking Mugabe to intervene against against a Court order .
How did we even get here ? How did we even reach this point where the abnormal is now regarded as normal ?? The people we expected to pray for our leaders to be faithful and trustworthy are at the forefront of demanding favours from the very same leaders .
They don’t follow protocols , they just walk into Cabinet Minister’s Office with a lost of land properties they want . They get what they want in return for not questioning the decisions of the Government .
One day we will work up to a privatised Harare . We will work up to to a Harare were every piece piece of land now belongs belongs to land Barons and at the top of that list of land Barons will will be Pastors Pastors and Prophets .
They buy land worthy over USD $5 million by simply paying $100k to the Minister (and not to Harare City Council ) yet over 1 million Zimbabweans in Harare are homeless .
Is it normal that a Christian , a true Christian walk into a Minister’s Office to pay for land ? Tell me which Country do Ministers sell land ?? Is it not similar to Guptas state Capture ???
