More than six riot police officers, journalists and members of the Apostolic Christian Council of Zimbabwe (ACCZ) were seriously injured after rowdy Johanne Masowe Echishanu apostolic sect congregants attacked them with sticks and stones today in Budiriro 2. The war broke out soon after ACCZ executive president Archbishop Johannes Ndanga announced that the church led by Madzibaba Ishemael Mufani had been banned from operating in Zimbabwe because it was violating the country's laws and that of Christianity.
The congregants were singing a song called "Hondo Yepfumo Neropa" and smashed a ZBC truck shouting that the only recognise President Mugabe not Ndanga.
The injured were rushed to Harare Hospital and others were taken to Garden City Clinic in Highfield.
Bishop Ndanga escaped death by a whisker after he rushed into his Range Rover and sped off in a movie style.
Bishop Ndanga accused the church of denying over 400 children of school going age access to education, severe abuse of church congregants and their families or relatives.
