Biti urges churches to pray for Zimbabwe

HARARE – People’s Democratic Party (PDP) leader Tendai Biti has urged churches to pray for Zimbabwe, saying the country is on a “knife-edge” following weeks of unprecedented protests.

In the past weeks, citizens have taken to the streets in protest against President Robert Mugabe and his government, accusing them of grossly mismanaging the country.

Writing on his Twitter account, Biti said “the church must lead our country in prayer. We are on a precipice . . . a real knife edge”.

His remarks come as the church — largely viewed as of great influence in the country’s political sphere — has become vocal on the deepening Zimbabwe crisis.

A fortnight ago, various church groups plotted a demonstration, which was violently quashed by the police.

Zimbabwe is currently experiencing serious crises that include cash shortages, high unemployment and grinding poverty.

Amid the crises, citizens have been embarking on protests that in most cases have turned violent, demanding Mugabe and his government to resign.

Since the demonstrations started, several groups have emerged and opposition political parties have joined the protests, in a move that has left Mugabe and his government shaken to the core.

Only last week, several shops were looted, while the Copa Cabana vending market was set alight by angry protesters.

According to a report released by civil society organisations recently, at least 354 people were injured while one person died from injuries sustained at the hands of the police, following widespread protests that rocked Zimbabwe since January this year.

A group of international elders that include Graca Machel, Kofi Annan and Desmond Tutu has since called for Sadc to intervene in the Zimbabwe crisis and ensure a smooth transition of power in the country. -Daily News
