ZIMBABWE AN ISLAMIC STATE: Dokora Gets $20mil to Build 83 Muslim Schools


Makandiwa says: "Everyone who is poor is cursed by God"

By David Moyo| Primary and Secondary Education Minister Lazarus Dokora who says Islam was the nation’s number one religion at independence in 1980, has secured a large $20 million loan from Islamic organisations to build Muslim schools in Zimbabwe.

As part of a controversial grand plan to make Islam dominant in Zimbabwe’s education system, described as an ‘Islamic Jihad’, Dokora last year announced government has secured a loan of $20 million from the Organisation Of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) to facilitate this move. Dokora says Islam was Zimbabwe’s designated indigenous religion which was number 1 in 1980 and Christianity at number 4 (CLICK HERE TO READ).

The development, critics say, could place Zimbabwe already a pariah state in an uneasy situation with the rest of the world in the fight against radical Islam and the continued threat to global peace and stability by groups that include the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria – ISIS. Nigeria and Kenya are some of the African countries that have suffered the most incredible and devastating terrorist attacks in recent history.

The most popular Islamic international organisations funded by OPEC include Muslim Brotherhood, Muslim Students Association, Taliban and Organisation of Islamic Cooperation.

Dokora announced that government has since identified sites for the first 17 of the thousands of schools to be funded under the Islamic states arrangement with government.

Dokora angered Christians in Zimbabwe by shooting down traditional Christian activities in the country’s education system, that soon saw the banning of scripture unions in the schools.

Said Dokora, “we have managed to get a loan of $20 million from OPEC to build the first seventeen of those schools while the rest is being finalised with other similar international private partners.”

Dokora also said government will build 83 schools throughout the country through joint ventures with unnamed international private players while the first 17 of these will be funded by a $20 million loan facility from OPEC.

“The Ministry had identified sites for the roll out of 83 schools to be built in the country and in the next few weeks we should begin to do the financial closures for the projects,” he said.

OPEC is a permanent intergovernmental organization of 13 oil-exporting developing nations that coordinates and unifies the petroleum policies of its Member Countries

Led by Saudi Arabia in its international funding activities, OPEC has been very consistent in emphasising the promotion of Islamic fundamentalism as a prerequisite for the release of its funds.

In another revelation through the state media, Dokora was quoted as having agreed to have Islamic states build up to 2000 schools in the country with the states demanding for the removal of Christianity as the dominant religion in schools and promotion of Muslim.

Addressing the delegates, Dokora assured that government has found partners who will be able to build the 2056 schools needed in the country within the shortest possible period.

Dokora called on Zimbabweans not to resist the opportunity provided by the OPEC countries to build schools in the country.

“This is a key area where everybody has to participate. It would be sad if we miss this opportunity to develop the infrastructure for the schools we need. We need to make rapid progress,” said Dokora amidst confusion in his audience.


Islamic state

Meanwhile Dokora this year has said that Islam was Zimbabwe’s first religion at independence.

Speaking at a February function, Dokora listed the Islamic religion as number one for Zimbabwe while pushing Christianity down to number 4.

While addressing panelists Dokora responded saying:
“And then of course there were the questions raised that: ‘is my my child going to be taught Islam?, is my my child going to be taught indigenous religion?’ said Dokora.

He continued saying, “in 1980 the curriculum that we fashioned for the republic, includes Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Christianity, Bhudiism,” he voiced while using his fingers to elaborate the importance by order.

He emphasised saying, “I was a teacher, I was just a teacher in the classroom, and those were introduced at Grade 2.”

He reiterated his comment saying that the curriculum has always had the religions in the order laid out according to his list.

“Do you think we should take these themes and teach them to ECB?  Can I follow your thread, because you think its a new thing, and I am trying to get you to appreciate that it has always been there in the formula (order) that I have described to you..” WATCH THE FULL VIDEO BELOW:

    Mukuru Anonyepa Kwazvo Uyo. If islam was number one, why are you in a hurry to upgrade its prominence by building so many schools now? Most schools were predominently Christian. Any level headed person knows that.

  • mtoto1

    Somebody needs to put an end to this nonsense before Zimbabwe becomes like Nigeria. We don’t need this parasite religion in our country. If we don’t have money to build schools let out children be taught outside under trees. We don’t want our children brainwashed into becoming suicide bombers, killing innocent people who refuse to embrace this SICK religion. Dokora needs to go ASAP! We don’t want Zimbabwean schools to be built by blood money. Parents should not allow their children to attend class when Islam is being taught period! I believe it’s their right. They can argue it goes against their beliefs or religion.

  • Peter

    There’s is also some Omar something contesting in a by-election somewhere. And the chances that he’s going to win are pretty high. Zimbabwe is turning Muslim.

  • james munashe hungwe

    Surely we are not short of decent religions in Zim. There is no point in trying to import an archaic, voilent and intolerant religion of beheaders human heart eaters and suicide bombers. No thank u. Our God does not admit murderers in his holy heaven.

    Please we do not need a violent religion in Zimbabwe. You are going to teach our children to be suicide bombers. What’s wrong with the current Christian order. There is no peace in Tanzania, there are news of religion war. Remember Qouran teaches that one goes to heaven if they kill Jews or People of the book ( Christians). Zimbabwe reject conditional donations. Inga wani that’s what Mugabe says, what’s wrong.

  • Jesus is Lord

    Zimbabweans must pray that this will not come to pass

  • Jesus is Lord

    Amen. This is becoming rediculous. Dokora mus be removed befoe Zimbabwe is totally destroyed. Were did the Government get this person from. He has to to wth immediate effect!! Most countries in Africa with huge problems are Islamic. Look at Somalia, they have never known peace. Look what is happening in the world because of this religion.

  • Oscar

    This article is BS, full of lies and distortions. Whoever penned this garbage is an idiot. To begin with OPEC is not 100% Muslim it has non Muslim countries too, Angola, Venezuela etc. Secondly OPEC is not in the business of religion it is an oil cartel. Saudi Arabia exports its “terrorism” where ever the USA directs its venture into Muslim countries like Syria. Instead of insulting Islam, you Zimbabwean pussies should direct your attention to Zanu PF and Mugabe they are the ones who destroyed Zimbabwe

  • Oscar

    Prophet Jesus Never said he was Lord this is BS and is from your misleading teachings of the perverted version of the bible you read, moron

  • Oscar

    You are displaying total ignorance of a religion that is growing faster than Christianity and talking of violence ask Mugabe what he did to the Matabeles. Also ask Mugabe a Catholic how he kills anyone who dares oppose him. Yes there are all sorts of violent people in the world which includes Muslims but Islam does not give them the license to kill you dam moron

  • Oscar

    And Zimbabweans like you love going to Dubai you hypocrites

  • Oscar

    Your god is Mugabe you are shit scared of him. You are not scared of the real God.

  • mtoto1


  • kuku

    We dont want your religion keep it there..

  • Oscar

    Its not what pleases you that you shall get you moron. The fact is Islam is on the march a bit slow in Zimbabwe because you guys are preoccupied in materialism instead of seeking the truth. No wonder Mugabe can screw you guys and you will not protest because your faith in God is weak

  • Ruth

    Ask Hazem Farraj and all other islam converts to christianity. The only way islam is growing is many children that they have! You will not succeed in the house of stone Zion!! Ende hakuna anoti pwee. 2 billion people fasting 30 days a year and still your wars are raging like wildfire!! Hunger is better wen you have peace!! Google Hazem Farraj! Google Sina Ali too.

    It’s sad that this has become the case. I remember after independence we were encouraged to learn more about our past indigenous history and the chimurenga war so as not to forget our past. It was before independence that we learnt about Mohammed and Kadhija than after. Please let’s not distort our history and it’s sad to do so when people are there to speak for themselves. Can our ex combatants help us here, where did you advocate for this religion during the chimurenga war? I remember macomrades promoting chi vanhu , vadzimu and kurova makuva evakafira muhondo. It is poverty that is forcing our state to become so vulnerable and desperate to this extent. Please don’t set the cat among the pegions this will have everlasting consequences.
