Kudakwashe Tagwirei divides SDA Church in Zimbabwe and Captures pastors

Kudakwashe Tagwirei divides SDA Church in Zimbabwe and Captures pastors

According to Nehanda Radio, Tagwirei is spending money to fund the SDA church in order to keep power. He is also reported to be putting his people and pastors in positions of power, using them as proxy for his goals.

Among the initiatives he is supporting is the multimillion-dollar Harare City Centre Church (HCCC) in the CBD, which is still under construction.

According to SDA HCCC branch sources, Tagwirei directly compensates a cabal of ‘his’ pastors and elders and promises them large enticing advantages like as top-of-the-line automobiles and housing loans.

“He is very untouchable. He acts like a demi-god in the church, making and declaring decisions on behalf of the whole church.

“He is basically cultivating the culture of corruption and immoral behaviour in the church.

“What worries us right now is the fact that the church leaders no longer have capacity to rebuke or censure him because they are benefiting.

“Imagine, several allegations of adultery, corruption and using the church for money laundering and illicit financing have been brought to the attention of the church leaders but they turn a deaf ear and blind eye to all of that,” the source lamented.

” I think he should just take his pastors form their own church and leave God’s church alone, added the source.

This has now divided the church into two camps: those who support Tagwirei and those who oppose his influence.

Notable church members who oppose Tagwirei’s influence include Thabani Mpofu, a well-respected SDA elder and top constitutional lawyer, Pastor and Chaplin Munyaradzi Savanhu, Gweru-based pastor Tapiwa Chinyavanhu, and top human rights lawyer Paidamoyo Saurombe, who is also a member of the SDA church.

Tagwirei’s team includes numerous Pastors, including Blessing Nyahuma, who is a member of the controversial businessman’s inner circle and an adviser.

Tagwirei’s Personal Assistant, Everton Mlalazi, Obey Chimuka, Innocent Mugwisi, Gumbotshuma, Simon Dzete, Blessing Nyahuma, and Brian Moyo, whose wife Nyarai Moyo runs Harare’s flashy Yanaya restaurant.

Another HCCC elder identified as Gumbochuma is also a close ally of Tagwirei. His wife runs a company called Platinum Catering which provides food at all Tagwirei events, including funerals, parties and weddings.

Famous Pastor and musician Aaron Rusukira is also a close ally of Tagwirei. The “Mwanangu” singer is also being paid monthly allowances by Tagwirei.

Rusukira, a medical doctor by profession, is also believed to be behind the Pastors for Economic Development (Pastors for ED) movement.
