Conference 2013


As the nation of Zimbabwe prepares for the forthcoming General Elections, the major thrust from all sectors be it civic, political, church leaders and individual Zimbabweans is for the elections to be peaceful. At this year’s convention, the principals and other groups such as the security departments, the media, the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission and many more have been invited to advise the Bishops and the church in general the plans and strategies they have put in place for peaceful elections.

As we get closer to elections, it is the church’s desire that peace will prevail during the elections. The theme for the conference is therefore PEACE.

The Church should not be partisan and should support the Government in power. Church leaders gathered in Harare yesterday for the Lead Zimbabwe conference said the Church should desist from imposing political affiliations on congregants.

The speakers said Church leaders should allow divergent political views in the church.

Deputy Prime Minister Arthur Mutambara urged political parties to work together for a shared national vision.
