The aborted and much awaited Itai Dzamara national prayers will soon resume after the Zimbabwe Republic Police have allowed the organizers of the meetings to go ahead.

The prayer meetings were initiated by the Devine destiny church after the disappearance of the journalist-cum social rights activist in March last year.

Dzamara was abducted by state security agents for staging series of peaceful demonstrations against President Robert Mugabe’s “misrule”.

A number of Dzamara prayer meetings were held in Harare last year and it was in Zvishavene in October after the organisers had invited MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai to be one of the guest speakers that the police disrupted the congregation.

One of the Dzamara prayer meetings organisers Reverend Rogers Tekwa told reporters in Harare recently that the Zimbabwe Republic Police Commissioner General Augustine Chihuri had given them the green light to hold the national prayer meetings.

“We can confirm to you that we are going to resume the Dzamara national prayers very soon and they are going to start in earnest,” said Reverend Tekwa.

“We met with the Police Commissioner General Augustine Chihuri in the past over church events and he made an assurance that we should notify him at any given time should there be individuals disrupting any church related event”.

Early this year the chairperson of the Itai Dzamara Trust bishop Ancelimo Magaya said they were engaging government through Vice President Emerson Mnangagwa with the aim of pushing the state to search and bring the missing activist.
