Acting President Phelekezela Mphoko has joined the Christian community in Bulawayo on a national prayer for rains.
The 9th to the 17th of January was declared a week of national prayer for rains.
Christians in Bulawayo have heeded the call to pray for rains as Zimbabwe faces a crippling drought that has already affected many parts of the country.
Cde Phelekezela Mpoko attended a service at the Family of God Church in Bulawayo where he urged every Christian to pray for rains to God at this hour of need.
He said, while the current dry spell is a result of the El Nino, God has the power to change anything if people subject themselves to his power.
Mphoko has been residing at the Rainbow Towers for 403 days up to date.
