Emmanuel Moyana preys on young women?

Emmanuel Moyana, who is founder of the Emmanuel Global Ministries International and Multi-People’s Democratic Party (MPDP), is at the centre of controversy amid revelations that he allegedly preys on young successful women.

Moyana, who is also leader of the Emmanuel Embassy Ministries International in Botswana, is accused of flirting with temptation by not walking his talk as a man of God.

Bishop Emmanuel Moyana courted controversy when he reportedly left his family to co-habit with a Harare woman (name withheld for ethical reasons) who made headlines in 2004 after being allegedly paid to enter into a marriage of convenience with a Nigerian who wanted to secure a residence permit.

The woman in question who is also a hairdresser openly confirmed to B-Metro that she dated Bishop Moyana for more than two years before their love boat hit its turbulent waters.

“I know him as my ex-boyfriend. We started dating in 2017 and separated in February this year. During that time I was also aware that he was dating another woman in Victoria Falls and they had a child together but that didn’t affect me much since the two of us didn’t have a child together.”

She said the last straw was when she discovered that the two, Moyana and the Victoria Falls-based woman, were planning to marry.

In a complaint document, sent to B-Metro by some aggrieved parties suspected to be members of his church, Moyana is also alleged to have used Holy Scriptures to prey on a Victoria Falls-based woman who is also a pastor and employed by one of the safari companies in the resort town.

It is reported that the two met in 2016 and Emmanuel Moyana promised the woman a big wedding before she moved from her base in Victoria Falls to temporarily stay with him in Harare.

The woman later returned to her base in the resort town after she discovered that she had been tricked by the man of God.

However, in his response, Moyana, although he admitted to affectionately dating the two women in question, vehemently denied accusations that he preyed on them allegedly for sex.

“There is no truth in those allegations that is why I called you to clarify everything. I was married before and I divorced in 2010. I had two children from that marriage. I don’t have a private life and I have nothing to fear since my family knows everything. As with (Harare woman) she is my ex-fiancé and we don’t have a child together as alleged,” said Emmanuel Moyana.

Coming to his alleged “pseudo” relationship with a Victoria Falls-based woman, Moyana said: “We are going to be married very soon. I once went to her parents with the intention of paying lobola and I was told that according to their ways there were some things they need to do before I proceed with the marriage.

“I was told mbuya vacho vanobereka baba havapo so kana mbuya vasipo hazvigoni (her paternal grandmother was not there and since she was not there, the marriage ceremony could not proceed in her absence) and that discouraged me, but we are still together.”

Meanwhile, although the woman confirmed to B-Metro that she dated Bishop Moyana she said the man of God hurt her so much that she could not easily get past it.

“I am an ordained pastor in my church and when I met him I was already a pastor. I guess the fact that I am a pastor and by him saying he was a man of God I trusted things were going to work out well. I surely had a son for him and it’s funny how stuff about him reaches me. At some point someone sent me a picture of him with some lady,” she said.

When asked to corroborate Moyana’s claims that they were still together and planning to marry anytime soon, the seemingly heartbroken pastor said: “It’s complicated. I am one person who got hurt so much and I had put this Emmanuel matter behind me because he lied to me.”B-Metro

Zimbabwe agrees to pay $3.5 billion compensation to white farmers

Zimbabwe White Farmers

Zimbabwe agreed on Wednesday to pay $3.5 billion in compensation to Zimbabwe white farmers whose land was expropriated by the government to resettle black families, moving a step closer to resolving one the most divisive policies of the Robert Mugabe era.

But the southern African nation does not have the money and will issue long term bonds and jointly approach international donors with the farmers to raise funding, according to the compensation agreement.

Two decades ago Mugabe’s government carried out at times violent evictions of 4,500 Zimbabwe white farmers and redistributed the land to around 300,000 Black families, arguing it was redressing colonial land imbalances.

The agreement signed at President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s State House offices in Harare showed white farmers would be compensated for infrastructure on the farms and not the land itself, as per the national constitution.

Details of how much money each farmer, or their descendants, given the time elapsed since the farms were seized, was likely to get were not yet clear, but the government has said it would prioritise the elderly when making the settlements.

Farmers would receive 50% of the compensation after a year and the balance within five years. Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube and acting Agriculture Minister Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri signed on behalf of the government, while farmers unions and a foreign consortium that undertook valuations also penned the agreement.

“As Zimbabweans, we have chosen to resolve this long-outstanding issue,” said Andrew Pascoe, head of the Commercial Farmers Union representing  Zimbabwe white farmers.

The land seizures were one of Mugabe’s signature policies that soured ties with the West. Mugabe, who was ousted in a coup in 2017 and died last year, accused the West of imposing sanctions on his government as punishment.

The programme still divides public opinion in Zimbabwe as opponents see it as a partisan process that left the country struggling to feed itself. But its supporters say it has empowered landless Black people. Mnangagwa said the land reform could not be reversed but paying of compensation was key to mending ties with the West. Reuters

Chinamasa calls U.S. ambassador ‘thug’ as anti-government protests loom

Chinamasa

Zimbabwe’s ruling ZANU-PF party on Monday called the United States ambassador a “thug” and accused him of funding the opposition ahead of this week’s planned anti-government protests that authorities say are meant to overthrow the government.

Without providing evidence, ZANU-PF spokesman Patrick Chinamasa told reporters that U.S. ambassador to Harare, Brian Nichols, was involved in subversive activities to topple President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government.

Chinamasa’s comments echo the Robert Mugabe era, where the ZANU-PF government regularly accused the United States and Britain of seeking to dislodge it from power.

“He (Nichols) continues to engage in acts of undermining this republic and if he does so, if he continues engaging in acts of mobilising and funding disturbances, coordinating violence and training insurgents, our leadership will not hesitate to give him marching orders,” Chinamasa said.
“Diplomats should not behave like thugs, and Brian Nichols is a thug.”

The U.S. embassy in Harare did not immediately respond to Chinamasa’s comments. Political tensions are rising fast in the southern African nation after activists called for demonstrations on July 31 against government corruption, which they blame for deepening the worst economic crisis in more than a decade.

Last month, the government summoned Nichols after a senior White House official said Zimbabwe was among “foreign adversaries” using the civil unrest in the United States following the death of George Floyd to interfere in U.S. affairs.

The U.S., Britain, E.U. embassies and the United Nations have all criticised Zimbabwe for the arrest of journalists and political challengers.
Relations between Zimbabwe and the West were promising when Mnangagwa replaced Mugabe after a coup in 2017, but have soured over the government’s human rights record.

Patrick Chinamasa urged party supporters to defend themselves from protesters and avoid a repeat of the deadly violence that followed post-election demonstrations in August 2018 and the January 2019 protests over a steep fuel price hike.“No, this time no. Use any means at your disposal to defend yourselves,” Chinamasa said. Organisers say this week’s protests will be peaceful. Reuters

Perence Shiri, Zimbabwe Agriculture Minister Dies

Perrence-Shiri-Dead

Zimbabwe’s agriculture minister Perence Shiri, a retired general who helped plot the ouster of Robert Mugabe in a 2017 coup, has died, President Emmerson Mnangagwa said on Wednesday.

Perence Shiri, who commanded the air force for 25 years until he joined the government in 2017, was admitted to hospital on Tuesday, two government sources said. He died in the early hours of Wednesday.

“Shiri was a true patriot, who devoted his life to the liberation, independence and service of his country,” Mnangagwa said in a statement. He did not say how Shiri died.

But domestic media said Shiri, 65, succumbed to complications from the respiratory disease caused by the coronavirus, which has infected 2,817 and killed 40 in Zimbabwe.

A liberation war veteran,Perrence Shiri had a chequered past. He commanded the army’s Fifth Brigade unit that carried out the 1980s massacres of thousands of civilians in western Zimbabwe as the government sought to quell an insurgency.

The army massacres, known as ‘Gukurahundi’, a Shona term meaning the ‘early rain that washes away the chaff’, remain a sore point for the people of the Matabeleland region, many of whom demand justice and reparations.

The main opposition Movement for Democratic Change accused Perence Shiri of being among the security chiefs who organised violence against its members after Mugabe lost the first round of the presidential vote in 2008.Reuters
