THE regional chairperson of the African Family Federation for World Peace and Unification, Reverend Bakary Camara has paid a courtesy call on President Emmerson Mnangagwa with the recent general elections and the role of the church in national development on the agenda.

Speaking after a closed-door meeting, Reverend Camara, said they spoke about how his organisation can work with Zimbabwe in cementing peace and relations of the family unit.

“Today was a great day as the chairman of the council of the Universal Peace Federation. We came to see His Excellency and congratulate him for the great victory for Zimbabwe and Africa. We have been discussing together for three years and now we’re back and can share what can be done together in terms of peace, relations within families, in relation to development,” he said.

Reverend Camara also emphasised the role of the church in nation-building.

“Nation building should be supported by the church, the spiritual side of human beings is a core value, so that is why we preach love, peace and caring for others. If the church can understand its core values, then naturally, peace and stability will prevail,” said Reverend Camara.

President Mnangagwa has on numerous platforms noted the importance of the church in economic development while stressing that freedom of worship is guaranteed in Zimbabwe.
