Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Than­deka Moyo Chron­i­cle Re­porter

THE Jo­hane Ma­sowe Yechis­hanu de­nom­i­na­tion in Bu­l­awayo has ap­pealed to the city coun­cil to al­lo­cate the con­gre­ga­tion land to build a church.

In a let­ter which was handed over to the Zanu-PF Bu­l­awayo pro­vin­cial chair­per­son, Cde Den­nis Ndlovu, the church said they were in­ter­ested in get­ting a stand sit­u­ated op­po­site a booster along Ce­cil Road in Sel­bourne Park. The church’s lead­ers said they had more than 6 000 mem­bers.

Cde Ndlovu said it was im­por­tant for the church to get a stand and build toi­lets for their mem­bers.

“It is im­por­tant for the peo­ple of Bu­l­awayo to en­joy their free­dom of wor­ship in proper fa­cil­i­ties where there are toi­lets. We hope the City of Bu­l­awayo which has al­ways sup­ported churches will help them get this stand as per their pol­icy,” said Cde Ndlovu.

“We look for­ward to a city with no open air churches and we hope the coun­cil will avail more stands for such churches. We also com­mend the work done by the church to help peo­ple with var­i­ous prob­lems.”

Mr Em­manuel Gwan­dida, the leader of the church, said it was time they started build­ing a church as mem­ber­ship con­tin­ued to in­crease.

“We are min­is­ter­ing to a lot of trou­bled peo­ple in this church from all walks of life. We have a wish to build a church hall, park­ing bays and a crèche for our chil­dren,” he said — @thamamoe
