A leader of Johanne Masowe eChishanu apostolic sect, Andby Makururu, this Friday pleaded with President Emmerson Mnangagwa to allow church leaders to meet and pray in their respective
churches for prayers.
The plea is made when the president has extended the coronavirus induced national lockdown by further 14 days.
Mnangagwa said that social gatherings including church services remained barred until further notice.
Speaking to NewsDay Weekender in an interview in Mutare, Makururu said that at least church leaders must be allowed to meet for prayers at their churches even for a limited period of time. He said:
Today, I am just pleading for a small request to President Emmerson Mnangagwa, to give us churches a role to play in the fight against the coronavirus.

We are saying he (Mnangagwa) should give us a chance as church leaders to meet at our respective shrines or churches to meet and pray for a small period of time weekly be it 30 minutes or one hour.
Makururu said that praying at home can be difficult adding that leaders can strengthen each other if they meet in person.
Some churches have already online churches to remain connected with their congregants during lockdowns.
