HARARE – Thousands of couples
drawn from all walks of life had their marriages blessed and rededicated at the
Peace and Family Festival held recently at the National Sports Stadium.
The event was organised by the Family
Federation for World Peace and Unification (FFWPU), an organisation which
operates in 191 countries around the world with several affiliates.
The event was graced by the
co-founder of FFWP Dr Hak Ja Han Moon and other leaders across the globe.
FFWPU local leader and the president
of the Apostolic Churches Council of Zimbabwe (ACCZ) Archbishop Johannes Ndanga
said Moon was in Zimbabwe on a peace mission, adding her influence could help
to get economic sanctions imposed against Zimbabwe removed.
“Mother Moon has come to Zimbabwe as
her first stop in Africa where she is encouraging national unity. For us to
have peace, we need national unity and Mother Moon is an avid campaigner for
peace, having done it in Korea and other countries,” said Ndanga.
In a speech read on his behalf by former
Minister of State for Masvingo Provincial Affairs and Zanu PF politburo member
Josaya Hungwe, President Emmerson Mnangagwa expressed interest in declaring November
21 the National Day of Peace and Family.
“My government has set up a National Peace
and Reconciliation Commission (NPRC) which, among other things, superintends
over our efforts to unite and forgive each other over the conflicts of the
past…. To further institutionalise the above, my government will also consider
the 21st of November as ‘The National Day of Peace and Family,” he
Mnangagwa also thanked Moon for the
visit and said Zimbabwe was praying for peace and to find a common vision. He
however said there were many challenges being faced at family level needing the
attention of the government.
Also present at the gathering was the
Information and Broadcasting Services deputy minister Energy Mutodi and
different church leaders.
