In an interview Kunonga said he would not have taken the stance he took were it not because the MDC was threatening to “hand over land back to the whites.”
“Prior to [the emergence of] MDC you would never have heard of me being in politics. In all my 42 years as a priest, I never heard of what the MDC is saying,” said Kunonga.
Kunonga also accuses the MDC of being a foreign-sponsored party.
The controversial preacher (who is also on the international sanctions list) now claims that he is a prophet who cannot stand aside when things are being “messed around.”
