Controversial Harare preacher Apostle Talent Chiwenga who was involved in a horrific accident yesterday which claimed the lives of three people including his wife, last week wrote to President Emmerson Mnangagwa begging for a meeting. In the letter, Chiwenga insisted that he was no threat to the government and claimed that he was being stalked by operatives from the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) and Military Intelligence Directorate (MID).
Sir, I am being followed by unregistered vehicles believed to be from the Central Intelligence Organisation or from the Military Intelligence Department of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, I am receiving death threats almost on a daily basis and this is because I preach the true gospel of Christ that condemns sin and calls all men to repentance, for God is not a respecter of persons.
It is my honest and humble opinion, Sir, that the people who are giving orders to military personnel or State security agents to kill me are your employees or your subordinates. I don’t see myself as a security or political threat to anyone in this country, because I am a preacher of the gospel whose tools are the Bible and the microphone.
I am therefore asking to see you so that I may among other things surrender myself to you and your administration so that if I do not get an opportunity to answer to issues I am being stalked and threatened for, at least I will save the government’s tax payers’ money which is being used to stalk me and harass me, if I have to die for the gospel I preach (which I am ready to die for), at least I will avail myself.
Controversial preacher Apostle Talent Chiwenga was involved in a horrific road accident which killed his wife and two other people on Wednesday afternoon – just days after saying state security agents were following him.
Chiwenga, popular for his politically-charged sermons in which he rails at Zimbabwe’s rulers and corruption, was battling for life at the Makurira Memorial Clinic in Masvingo, where staff said he was in a critical condition.
The accident occurred about 50km north of Masvingo, near the Chartsworth turn-off on the road to Harare. Unconfirmed reports say the four passengers were returning from a church conference in South Africa when tragedy struck.
It is not known who was driving but police believe the driver lost control and the vehicle, a Mitsubishi Pajero, rolled several times.
Two female passengers died on the spot and a man died upon arrival in hospital.
Chiwenga was admitted at Makurira Memorial Clinic.
Last week, during a sermon, the street preacher said he was being tailed by people he believed were state security agents.
He threatened he would go to President Emmerson Mnangagwa this week and tell the Zanu PF leader to shoot him, before declaring: “To my wife, please take care of the kids.”
Chiwenga’s politically-charged sermons have drawn him a huge following, but also earned him powerful enemies.
When he prophesied the dead of two prominent political figures, the ailing Vice President Constantino Chiwenga – a former army general – accused the preacher of making “false prophesies” before warning ominously: “Let it stop today. Let him be warned.”
In last week’s sermon on a Harare street, Apostle Chiwenga said strange cars were following him, “hounding and terrorising me.”
The haunting words by Apostle Chiwenga:
“I want to go to Mnangagwa’s office and say ‘if you are looking for me to kill me, I have come, kill me. Why should you send people to follow me? I can’t live my life looking behind to see if there are no cars following me. For what? If you have issues, I have come. Let’s talk about them. If you want to kill me, I have come, kill me. Call Chiwenga, your junior, and tell him that boy has come.’
“The coming week won’t end before I go to Mnangagwa’s office. CIO can’t be going to work to follow a pastor when Itai Dzamara hasn’t been found. I don’t have problems with people, I don’t travel with weapons because I don’t have enemies, they are the ones who say I’m their enemy. I don’t hate anyone, I only speak what God instructs me to speak and I will do so without fear or any reservations.
“I will go to his office, if they say he’s not there I will sit there until he comes. I will tell him there are people who are hounding me, who are terrorising me. I shouldn’t live in fear of politicians. To those who have been sent by Mnangagwa to kill me, if you don’t kill me today, next week I will be at your boss’s office. I will tell him ‘maybe you’re failing to find me, I said let me come on my own.’
“I will tell my wife I’m going, look after the children well. I will tell him (Mnangagwa) ‘since you like blood, here’s some more blood, spill some more. Since you like killing, I have come so that you can kill me, but I’m not going to apologise for what I said because it was the truth. God is not happy with you, you must change your ways. If you don’t do that, nothing will change. This is not the way to run a country’.”
