Pastor Urges Prayer to Help Ensure Peaceful Poll

The Bible

In less than two weeks Zimbabweans go to the polls to elect leaders at all levels, likely bringing to an end the four-year old unity government that critics say was largely ineffective as politicians from the three political parties in the coalition rarely agreed on policies.

Now with President Robert Mugabe’s side the of the government announcing the disbanding of the Joint Operation and Monitoring Implementation Committee (JOMIC), some fear this could be a precursor for violence, especially in the rural communities.

VOA’s Sandra Nyaira speaks with Reverend Eva Mudambanuki of the United Methodist Church on the Women’s Forum about what Zimbabwean women can do as they yearn for a peaceful election in their country. Rev. Mudambanuki urged Zimbabweans to adhere to Biblical teachings and be “carriers of peace” as they approach elections.
