“…So I made a decision to go for the head on collision, I felt in my spirit that the Lord wanted me to do that, and that is what I did.”
By A Correspondent | The Harare preacher Talent Chiwenga has spoken for the first time concerning the accident that happened in Norton in which he collided with the MDC Alliance Spokesman (2018) Jacob Mafume’s two family members who were traveling to the latter’s house to sleep for the night in the 13th July 2020, for a relative’s funeral.
Writing in his letter, Chiwenga said the accident which happened 3km before the Norton tollgate (while driving from Harare), was an assassination plot against him. He said this is the reason why he continued to drive straight into the oncoming vehicle.
His full unedited letter comes at a time when the Mafume family has continued to complain that their two departed loved ones were victims of a road marking error which has seen numerous other accidents happening at the scene, as traffic coming from the Bulawayo side is made to take into the wrong lane after the tollgate (no markings or directions).
The preacher says the driver he collided with had no reason to enter his lane.
In proving this, Chiwenga uses a sketchdiagram of the tollgate that suggests that the island separating the lanes begins from inside the tollgate structure. But hovering footage shows there are no markings and the Bulawayo traffic is clearly diverted into the Harare lane.
Talent Chiwenga wrote addressing the Church members calling them his “children.”
THE FULL UNEDITED EXCERPT IS BELOW:
I write to you my children, to communicate with you because I love you and I miss you. It has been long since you heard from me or saw my face.
Well you all know how we got involved in a head-on collision with a white mercedes benz sedan car that was wrongly driving on a one way traffic road at a very high speed towards us without switching on the headlights well, it only switched its headlights on when it was less than ten metres away from our car, after 1900 hours Central African Time.
This was not an ordinary or natural accident, it was an assassination plan by enemies of the gospel who hold high offices in government. We had informed you a week before this incident of this plan but they still went ahead to do it. The plan was to cause me to panic and try to avoid a head on collision and by so doing i would lose control of my vehicle and we were all going to die; just like they did in the June12, 2019 accident. They would blame me and say I do not know how to drive safely, or I was sleeping while driving, or i was overspeeding, or i was drunk. Nobody would corroborate our story that there was an oncoming car on a one way road in the highway. And we would look stupid, untruthful and falsely accusing them of foul play. So I made a decision to go for the head on collision, I felt in my spirit that the Lord wanted me to do that, and that is what i did.
We thank God that none lost their lives in our car, there were no fatalities, only two people were hurt, myself and one faithful helper in the protocol department.
I sustained serious injuries, and i have gone through numerous procedures and operations, but i am alive, and i am hopeful that the Lord will heal me and i will be able to walk again, stand again and share the good word of the Lord with you.
2 Corinthians 4:8-12
18]We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. So then death worketh in us, but life in you.”
As i write this message to you right now (0300 hours CAT), i am in much pain, the pain that i have never felt in my life, the pain that sometimes rages on even after receiving the highest dozes of the strongest painkillers available in the hospital. But this is just pain in my body, my spirit is fine, it is not sick, i find time to listen to the word and i can assure you it is well with my spirit.
Soon after the accident i saw the demages i had sustained,and i thought that through the excessive bleeding i experianced I was going to die on my way to the hospital, and i prayed what i thought was my last prayer to God; i said ‘ Lord you know how with sincerity and with a clear conscience i have served you, it was an honor to serve the King of kings and the Lord of Lords, you do not owe me anything, if my time to go has come, i am ready, i just want to thank you for the rare opportunity you gave me to be a steward of such a great gospel …’
I meant every word in this prayer, and after i said it i was so much at peace with everything. It is a great miracle that i am still alive today considering the serious injuries sustained and a loss of more than 2 and half litres of blood through
I know the Lord kept me alive for you, for your benefit, so that you can still receive a service from the prisoner of God. I know you are praying for me and that you arealso very worried, you want to hear my voice, and be able to see me and ascertain that i am truly alive. That will happen soon, we have to deal with life threatening situations first and then i will be able to see you again, remember i am yours, i belong to you and once i have recovered and the security situation has improved, you will see me.
I want to thank you all for your thoughts, your prayers and your love towards me, i love you too with all my heart, you are my true family and you know how useless i feel when i am not on the pulpit. But it is a necessary setback, i have to get better first and if the doctors declare me fit to function normally, we will all be happy together again.
Lastly i want to remind you how great the Love of our God is towards us, he tells us everything that will befall us beforehand, there are no surprises and that means he will become there to make sure we are not consumed by those afflictions laid before our paths by the devil.
As for the men of the city of Harare, the men of Zimbabwe who are seeking to kill me, because they do not like the word of God that i have spoken against them because of their abominable lives, this is God’s message to them:
“Min the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah came this word from the LORD, saying, Thus saith the LORD; Stand in the court of the LORD’S house, and speak unto all the cities of Judah, which come to worship in the LORD’S house, all the words that I command thee to speak unto them; diminish not a word: If so be they will hearken, and turn every man from his evil way, that I may repent me of the evil, which I purpose to do unto them because of the evil of their doings. And thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD; If ye will not hearken to me, to walk in my law, which I have set before you, To hearken to the words of my servants the prophets, whom I sent unto you, both rising up early, and sending them, but ye have not hearkened; Then will I make this house like Shiloh, and will make this city a curse to all the nations of the earth. So the priests and the prophets and all the people heard Jeremiah speaking these words in the house of the LORD. Now it came to pass, when Jeremiah had made an end of speaking all that the LORD had commanded him to speak unto all the people, that the priests and the prophets and all the people took him, saying, Thou shalt surely die. Why hast thou prophesied in the name of the LORD, saying, This house shall be like Shiloh, and this city shall be desolate without an inhabitant? And all the people were gathered against Jeremiah in the house of the LORD. When the princes of Judah heard these things, then they came up from the king’s house unto the house of the LORD, and sat down in the entry of the new gate of the LORD’S house. Then spake the priests and the prophets unto the princes and to all the people, saying, This man is worthy to die; for he hath prophesied against this city, as ye have heard with your ears. Then spa he Jeremiah unto all the princes and to all the people, saying, The LORD sent me to prophesy against this house and against this city all the words that ye have heard. Therefore now amend your ways and your doings, and obey the voice of the LORD your God; and the LORD will repent him of the evil that he hath pronounced against you. As for me, behold, I am in your hand: do with me as seemeth good and meet unto you. But know ye for certain, that if ye put me to death, ye shall surely bring innocent blood upon yourselves, and upon this city, and upon the inhabitants thereof: for of a truth the LORD hath sent me unto you to speak all these words in your ears. Then said the princes and all the people unto the priests and to the prophets; This man is not worthy to die: for he hath spoken to us in the name of the LORD our God.”
Are we going to find men in our country who are going to oppose the murderers’ voices, and say this man is not worthy to die, for he has spoken in the name of the Lord God? God knows better.
But the people of Zimbabwe should know that they are bringing innocent blood of the servant of God upon not only the murderers, but the whole country; and when the punishment comes upon a land it will affect everyone, including those who say we are the passive and indifferent one. It is a heinous sin to kill the prophet of God!!
My exhortation to you believers is that stand together as a family wherever you are, at the local assembly, or region, encourage one another in the faith, minister to each other’s needs, and above all dedicate a significant portion of your day’s time to hearing the word of God, we have endless video sermons on Facebook Page: Apostle TF Chiwenga Ministries, many downloadable audio sermons on Soundcloud/Apostle TF Chiwenga, and and also on YouTube/Jesus Revelation Ministries.
Let us respect the leaders we have in our assemblies, sections and regions, there needs to be order in the house of God at all times. Do not allow yourself to be used by the devil as an agent of disunity, disharmony and bickerings in the house of God.
We thank God that we do not have many cases of believers who have tested positive to the COVID 19 pandemic and most of them who have are stable and recovering well, most of them have fully recovered and are back to their normal lives, glory to Jesus for that.
I have written this letter to streangthen you, continue praying for me and i know the Lord hears all our prayers.
May the Lord Jesus Christ keep you pure, holy, undefiled until his last day. Grace be upon you all amen.
