News:Kasukuwere Threatens Church Not To Infere In Politics. Criticises Wearing Of Flag
<vote /> Local Government, Public Works and National Housing Minister Saviour Kasukuwere warned the church concerning politics during the Salvation Army’s 125 years of existence flag celebrations in Mount Darwin.
Speaking at the event Kasukuwere warned the church not to interfere in politics and said,
The moment churches go into the political terrain, you will find us ready for that. The Bible does not speak about inciting violence, murder or blood. A holy place should remain a holy place, and if there are challenges which our people are facing, let us sit down and resolve them. Individuals should not hide behind churches when they want to burn the country. We have churches mushrooming everywhere, yet they are doing nothing for the country. They are looking for donors’ money, yet that money is not benefiting the community. Churches must never be in conflict with the people, but must unite the nation.
He also criticised the wearing of the flag by protestors,
Woona twusikana twechirungu twopfeka flag yeZimbabwe! Kuita madress flag yedu manje! Kwaakutamba muzeerere nenyika uku! Kwakuda kutidheerera. (You see some protesting white women donning our national flag as dresses. They are undermining our authority, and we will not tolerate that.”)
Kasukuwere applauded the Salvation Army for assisting Government in developing the country by building schools, seven vocational training centres and 51 pre-schools, which he said signified its support for the Zanu-PF party.
