Hundreds of Zimbabweans are going back to their work places following the long Easter Holiday, marking the birth and birth of Jesus Christ.
Some of those, who spoke to Studio 7, said they had a good time with relatives and friends. Others said though times are hard, this was time for them to praise the Lord.
Temba Nzounhenda of Varume Svinurai/Vukani Madoda Mens’ Forum in Zimbabwe hoped that everybody would stay peaceful.
At the same time, some ministers of religion expressed hope for Zimbabwe, which is facing serious social, economic and political problems.
Life coach, author and pastor Vukani Dhladhla of Global Hope Ministries based in Harare said government should create more platforms where religious leaders can use their influence to bring serenity and hope to the Zimbabwean people in these trying times.
“.. Pastors, life coaches, motivational speakers, success coaches need to get a platform to speak into the nation using media platforms and the government needs to come on board to support such initiatives, because what you hear controls what you see, and what you hear controls your thinking.”
According to the Herald newspaper, nine people have died since Good Friday in separate road accidents countrywide while 43 were injured.
Statistics show that 10 people died during the same period last year while 87 were injured. National police spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba confirmed the deaths.
