Bushiri Spokesperson Blast Apostle Chiwenga
The spokesperson for Prophet Shepherd Bushiri of the Enlightened Christian Gathering, Maynard Manyowa, has added his voice to the people rubbishing controversial Harare preacher Talent Chiwenga’s claims that foul play led to the fatal accident he was involved in last week.
This comes after Chiwenga was involved in a horror accident which claimed the lives of three people including his own wife.
Chiwenga then made a video claiming that he suspected foul play and that this was no ordinary accident.
“I can assure you this was not an ordinary accident. I am not afraid to die, they should have just come for me not the people I love. I don’t have any regret, I have preached the word of God with a clear conscience. If this is my time to go, I’m ready,” Chiwenga said, with hospital intravenous cables sticking out of his battered body.
Manyowa then added his voice to this narrative calling Chiwenga a “moron with an ego” and dismissing his claims as “BS”.
Writing on social media in two separate posts, Manyowa said,
Accident pic shows
1. No ditch
2. No tree
3. Car did not swerve away from incoming traffic but straight into it and across the road.
4. 100m ahead is a blind curve – how was car spotted?
National Patriotic Front spokesperson Jealousy Mawarire also rubbished Chiwenga’s account of an assassination attempt.
“There are a lot of inconsistencies in his narrative, maybe it is because he is in pain, but that again won’t help his case in the event of a trial,” Mawarire said.
“My advice again will be, shut up, concentrate on recovery, mourn your wife and colleagues then face your day in court. Dzungu hakusi kungwara.”
Mawarire urged the pastor to keep quiet because he was facing 3 counts of culpable homicide.
“If you are a driver and you are involved in a fatal accident, the state normally has a case with you; it doesn’t have to change because it’s Talent Chiwenga. (Former Warriors player) Kaitano Tembo has pending cases after he was involved in an accident that killed his wife, years back. That’s rule of law.
“When one was driving a vehicle which got involved in a fatal accident, the driver usually faces culpable homicide charges, in this case, 3 counts, it’s normally wise to shut up and await their day in court. Just my little advice.
“I have spoken to very competent journos from Masvingo who attended the accident scene and I refuse to pander to limping conspiracy theories in order to be seen to be politically correct, never. I also know the place where the accident occurred, I have my personal experiences there.
“Believing in conspiracy theories is the albatross of many opposition figures, no wonder Zanu-PF could create Baba Jukwa and con most of this credulous lot. A high appetite for these conspiracy theories is fertile ground for disinformation, a potent tool that the Junta uses regularly,” Mawarire said.
National police spokesperson Paul Nyathi could neither confirm nor deny that Chiwenga might be charged, but said investigations were still going on.
“We are still conducting investigations. It is only after investigations that the police will be able to provide a position,” Nyathi said.
