President Mnangagwa says he is a God- fearing leader and a good pastor.

He told mourners in Shurugwi at the burial of the late Sekuru Pheneas Tagwirei, father to Sakunda Holdings director, Mr Kudakwashe Tagwirei, that he always finds time to pray alone and used to do so even during the liberation struggle.

“Hallelujah, God is a Holy trinity, God the Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit. Everything is in trinity, we have in a day, the morning, afternoon and night so we must also know that in human beings there is time of birth, life and death.

President Mnangagwa implored every Zimbabwean to put God first. He said at every gathering he makes sure he finds time to preach peace and unity.

“You think I don’t pray? I always find time to pray. Even soldiers pray. That is what we used to do even during the liberation struggle. When the going was getting tough, we would kneel down and pray to the God of war. And even now when we are all in peace, we also kneel down and pray to the God of peace."
