Archbishop Guti declared National Hero

Story by Peter Chivhima

THe late founder of Zimbabwe Assemblies of God Forward in Faith Church (ZAOGA) Archbishop Ezekiel Handinawangu Guti has been declared a National Hero.

For his contribution to the nationhood of Zimbabwe through prayer and ministering, the late ZAOGA founder, who died early this month, has been honoured with a national hero status.

The message was conveyed to the Guti family at the family home in Glen Lorne, Harare Tuesday evening.

The Guti family welcomed the development, saying the church leader had left an indelible mark in the lives of many people from across the globe.

The body of Archbishop Guti arrived in the country from South Africa to a hero’s welcome on Saturday.

Born on the 5th of May 1923 in the Ngaone area of Chipinge, Archbishop Guti started ministering in 1938 at the age of 15.

He then founded ZAOGA Forward in Faith and it grew to become one of the biggest Pentecostal churches in Africa.

He died at the age of hundred in South Africa early this month and will be buried at a date to be announced.
