The first lady of Zimbabwe, Grace Mugabe has advised citizens of the country to stay in the country and seek spiritual help saying there are also anointed men of God in the Southern African country.
She maintained that she sees no reason why Zimbabweans should go outside the country and spending exorbitant amount of money or what was readily available to them within the country.
She said this on Saturday at the Today’s Women Conference at Glamis Stadium in Harare, the Zimbabwean capital.
According to her, “I really don’t understand why scores of people are putting their faith on foreign preachers. They are having to raise a lot of money to visit them when in Zimbabwe we are blessed with anointed people of God who are able to do even greater things.”
Grace Mugabe’s comments come at a time when scores of Zimbabweans, including cabinet ministers, are flocking to countries such as Ghana and Nigeria seeking divine intervention.
“It doesn’t matter which denomination you belong to, we are all seeking one God. Believe in our prophets and stop wasting money visiting faraway countries. In Zimbabwe we have people who, through prayer, can heal you from your sickness and restore your broken marriage.
“People have this misconception that Zimbabweans do not know how to pray. Little do they know that we have a lot of anointed people who are able to help us because they know the environment that we are operating under. A closer look at the countries which are being thronged by our people reveals that they are torn by war and hunger,” she said.
Grace Mugabe told the thousands of people who attended the last day of the conference, organised by Prophetess Eunor Guti of the Zimbabwe Assemblies of God, that she also seeks the help of local spiritual leaders.
“I might be Grace Mugabe of Zimbabwe, but I cannot do it all on my own,” she said to wild applause.
She reportedly said, “I go to Amai Guti seeking guidance and she prays for me. The prayers enable me to keep my family and life together. I see God’s power in her and I have come to realise that God gives you people in your life to do certain tasks that you cannot do on your own because they are anointed in that area.
“There is no point in trying to compete or badmouth the anointed because theirs is a gift from God.
“To know what to do require wisdom that comes from God,” she said.
The conference ran from November 8-10 and attracted delegates from more than 182 countries.
It is rather worrisome to hear anyone from Zimbabwe describe other countries as war torn and hunger-stricken.
