Apostolic churches resist Parirenyatwa's call to register with the Traditional Medical Practitioners Council6 years ago
Apostolic Christian Council of Zimbabwe (ACCZ), an umbrella body of apostolic and zionist churches, has urged its members not to register with the Traditional Medical Practitioners Council (TMPC) despite threats by the Health Ministry to ban prophets, pastors, traditionalists and faith healers from working without a practising certificate from the council.
ACCZ president Archbishop Johannes Ndanga told The Herald that his members would not register with the council, as they are not traditional healers. Said Ndanga:
There is a great difference between faith healers and traditional healers and those who are ignorant of this fact should not coerce churches to register. The Traditional Medical Practitioners Act Chapter 27.14 does not speak to the church, but to traditional medicine. It does not speak to issues of faith, but traditional medicine. Therefore, apostolic and Zionist faith healers cannot register with the TMPC because they are not traditional healers, but they are faith healers.Feedback
