Unveiling the Reasons Behind ED’s Bocha Rally Cancellation

Emmerson Mnangagwa Declared Winner Of Zimbabwe's 2023 Presidential Election

President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s anticipated thank you rally at St Noah College in Bocha, Manicaland province, has been abruptly cancelled, marking a significant turn of events in the political landscape.

Scheduled to coincide with the Passover feast, the rally and accompanying church visit were expected to be emblematic of Mnangagwa’s outreach efforts.

However, the cancellation comes amidst reports of controversy surrounding a church member and Zanu PF Member of Parliament for Mutare West, Nyasha Marange. Allegations surfaced suggesting Marange leveraged his position within the church to coerce wealthy members into making contributions towards the President’s visit.

Sources close to the matter revealed that Marange’s actions have cast a shadow over the church’s reputation, prompting Mnangagwa to reconsider the rally. The high priest of the church, St Nimrod, purportedly had no knowledge of Marange’s alleged activities, further complicating the situation.

In response to the allegations, Marange vehemently denied any wrongdoing, asserting the church’s financial stability and independence from external solicitations. He emphasized the church’s numerous successful projects, including maize and dairy farming, as evidence of its self-sufficiency.

Marange’s involvement in controversy is not novel, as evidenced by recent disputes over the control of funds allocated to the Chiadzwa Community Share Ownership Trust. Accusations of Marange monopolizing control over the disbursed funds, sidelining fellow Members of Parliament, and fostering internal discord have surfaced, tarnishing his public image.

The reported infighting over the management of funds underscores the complexity of the situation, with traditional leaders expressing concern over Marange’s purported dominance in financial matters.

As the cancellation of the Bocha rally reverberates through political circles, it serves as a stark reminder of the intricacies and challenges inherent in Zimbabwe’s political landscape. The episode sheds light on the delicate balance between political engagement and ethical conduct, prompting reflection on the accountability and transparency expected from public figures.
