<vote /> Zion Christian Church (ZCC), one of the earliest African independent denominations, turns 40 years this week under the stewardship of Nehemiah Mutendi. The church which was founded in 1913 will commemorate the milestone from August 4 to 7 at Defe Dopota in Gokwe South.
Mutendi took the leadership mantle in 1976 following the death of ZCC founder Samuel Mutendi. In 2011, the University of Zimbabwe awarded him with a Doctor of Literature honorary degree in recognition of his work as an educationist.
Notable feats in this regard include the inception and administration of Mutendi Primary and High school (both opened in 1984), Dopota Primary School and Hebron High School (1986) and the Dzidzai Adult Literacy Programme. You can read Nehemiah Mutendi's full profile here.
