A week after the harmonised elections in Zimbabwe-churches in Bulawayo have persisted in prayer for the nation that is likely to face economic hardships.

On Sunday, just a day after the announcement of results, many people felt hard done but were urged by the senior pastor of Tarbenacle Grace Ministries Trevor Msimanga that the hope for this nation lies in God.

“All things work together for the good to them that love God,” he said to a wild Amen.

He added : “God will not forsake this land because he loves Zimbabwe,” Msimanga admonished his congregation.

Zimbabweans from all walks of life were shocked by the poll results casting doubt over the hope of economic prosperity of Zimbabwe.

Since the announcement of a two thirds majority rule by Zanu PF big companies traded in the red whilst the economy has lost millions of dollars.

Christians here have therefore taken themselves to task in prayer.

Msimanga told his church that Zimbabweans should be resilient at all times saying people should not seek asylum anywhere but stay and build this nation.

Bulawayo once again denied Zanu PF a chance to represent them in parliament but their efforts were fruitless as Zanu Pf romped to victory.
