THE Evangelical Fellowship of Zimbabwe has urged Zimbabweans to uphold the prevailing peaceful environment during and after the forthcoming elections.

EFZ secretary-general Pastor Blessing Makwara said they were inspired by the message of peace preached by President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

“In the past many people were not bold to speak out but we are grateful to the new dispensation for giving us a voice,” he said.

“The Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission, Gender Commission, and the National Peace and Reconciliation Commission should fully play their constitutional roles while the police should not tolerate violence.

“We kindly request that timelines for critical processes be publicly shared and adhered to. The President has always made reference to God, preaching the gospel of peace and reconciliation all the time. This signifies that the church and religion is that voice of conscience.

“People should be very careful of some church organisations but we have ZCBC (Zimbabwe Catholic Bishop’s Conference), ZCC (Zimbabwe Council of Churches) and others which are credible.”
