AFM members cause mayhem

afm

ZIMBABWE – DISGRUNTLED members of the Apostolic Faith Mission on Sunday staged what they described as ‘holy war’ in Dzivaresekwa against their overseer following his decision to transfer their resident pastor.

AFM Overseer Cosum Chiangwa was only rescued by police officers who then quelled the disturbances. Some of the defiant church members were picked up by the police and questioned at Dzivaresekwa police station.

The church service was also disrupted as members demonstrated against Chiangwa whom they accused of frustrating Pastor Mukundi.

When H-Metro visited the assembly, Chiangwa was holed up in his car as parishioners sang protest songs denouncing their overseer.

One of the members told H-Metro that Chiangwa was fulfiling what had been prophesied by a demon at the church declaring that Mukundi would go.

“Overseer is dancing to the tune of the demon which declared to us last time that our pastor would leave the assembly come what may,” said the church member.

“We demanded to see the overseer after he sent his officials. As we speak, our pastor has been asked not to report here because they are reassigning him to the rural areas. We will not be blessed to work with a pastor we are not agreeing to be under considering all the effort done by Mukundi for the past two years.

“What surprises us is that another pastor Mai Maraure of Dzivaresekwa 3 has been there for eight years but she has been spared because she is the one who reads the Bible for Chiangwa at conferences.

“Overseer is failing to understand that he is being used by the devil to fulfill his expectations because many people were being delivered by this pastor.

“There are so many developments at the church both spiritually and physically. “Chiangwa is doing all this to retain his post as overseer and that’s why he is appointing pastors loyal to him for votes.

“That does not benefit us for he is causing more divisions than resolving the issue and today he is also failing to address us.

“We won’t listen to his emissaries because we are proud of our church,” said one of the church members.
When H-Metro sought a comment from Chiangwa who was locked in the car, he asked to be excused and promised to respond later.

“It is better for you to come at the office or I will call you for my comment,” said Chiangwa from the confines of his car.

However, Chiangwa was not reacheable at the time of going to print. Chiangwa is being accused of recruiting pastors aligned to him at lucrative assemblies, an allegation he vehemently refuted last week.

    mmmmm, vanhu woyeeeee!!!!!, why are people so conerned about Pastors than God himself, If this pastor is delivering people then whats wrong for the overseer to sent the pastor to other areas so that people in that area can be delivered,Surely goodness and mercy should follow us how can congegates believe in demonic prophecies and believe they are true prophecies,demons sure here ,ko vaprofita vaendepiko mukereke iyi. Regai Pastor aende uyo, Be carefull of some pastors who draws people's attention from God to their so called doings be it miracles ,deliverance or what ,Ngatinamatei Mwari mupenyu ,pastor ingori vesel chete or should i say a leader kuti zviendeke , bvisai chi Pastor wedu ,pastor wedu muchurch. Naivowo vakuru vekereke chinjai constitution yenyu samamwe machurch,pastor ngaaite time yekuve pasangano ochinja within the stipulated years, otherwise mapastors aya achakunyangadzirai kereke

    The so called H-Metro and its editorials has long lost its relevance in being informative to Zimbabweans and the world at large. The credibility of more than 50% of their publications are nothing but false and subjective stories. People are no longer living in falsehoods and oppressive era that dominated our recent past. Just be warned that your imminent downfall is already on its way. Your old story book publications may attract a few pints of dollars to sustain your day to day operations and even to boost dividends for your shareholders, but this has also implications on lawsuits and many untold implications. We are watching from a distance: there will come that moment when we will be drawn nearer. My complaint is not based on this AFM issue, but this is part of the evidence of the hypocrisy and devilish money making devices of this media house in the name of H-Metro. Rather call it H-Manyepo.
