The statue of the liberation icon and spirit medium Nehanda Charwe Nyakasikana, popularly known as Mbuya Nehanda continues to be marred with a lot of controversies even after it has been erected.
Eagle Life Assembly leader Prophet Dr. Blessing Samuel Chiza has prophesied about the statue following its unveiling on Africa day.
In the prophecy, the man of God said the statue was going to be removed.
“I have a message for Zimbabwe, the Lord is saying I’m not happy with the statue of Mbuya Nehanda that was erected in Harare and the Lord is saying, the same way people celebrated when that carved image of idolatry was being put is the same people shall celebrate when they shall remove it.”
That thing is not going to last long…,” said Prophet Chiza.

The statue which stands in honor of Mbuya Nehanda was erected at Julius Nyerere and Samora Machel junction in Harare Central Business District
Meanwhile, leader of the MDC Alliance Nelson Chamisa came under fire following his remarks about idolatry and religion. Some people took exception to Chamisa’s words, claiming that he was insulting the statue of Mbuya Nehanda as well as African traditional religion.
The day before the unveiling of the statue, Chamisa who is also a pastor, shared a verse from the Bible.
“But you shall destroy their altars, break their sacred pillars, and cut down their wooden images. For you shall worship no other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God. Exodus 34:13-14”
This did not go down well with some people who accused Chamisa of looking down on and insulting the country’s traditions and indigenous religion. Some quarters also accused the charismatic politician of religious fundamentalism and of trying to impose his Christian religion on everyone else.
