Harare- MDC president Nelson Chamisa has called for the nation to join him for a prayer week in what he calls a prayer to undertake decisive steps.
In a statement the youthful leader said Zimbabwe needs lasting solutions
“We are faced with a terrible situation in our country and we must find a lasting solution. I know that you are suffering with no fuel, no power, no money, no passports, no jobs and no food. The cost of living has become unbearable. A lot of us cannot access medical facilities or medication. Children are dropping out of schools. Companies are shutting down” said Chamisa
He bemoaned the current state of civil service and that of war veterans and pensioners.
“Our civil servants, our teachers, nurses, patriotic men and women in uniform are struggling and have inadequate salaries. Our pensioners including our war veterans can hardly survive. Corruption has become a national anthem.
“In the rural areas just like the urban areas, life has become unbearable. Food is being abused as a partisan political weapon” he said
In his call to have a lasting solution Chamisa has called for Zimbabweans to join him for a seven day prayer.
“For that reason, I am urging all Zimbabweans from all walks of life and various denominations, in and outside the country to embark on a seven day prayer, fasting and intercession for our beloved country, Zimbabwe before undertaking crucial and decisive next steps.
“In particular, during the seven days of prayer, starting from Monday the 29th of July to Sunday the 4th of August, I kindly ask you to take an hour between 1pm and 2pm every day to lift your hands and submit your hearts to the Lord beseeching him to grant us the power, wisdom, strength and providence to see us through” called Chamis
Zimbabwe is currently facing one of the most difficult periods since Independence.
