One would be forgiven to think that all the church folk got caught up in the Zodwa WaBantu fiasco. The welcome service for Bishop TD Jakes in Harare hosted by Bishop Tudor Bismark was an embarrassment.
The Jabula – New Life Ministries leader Bishop Bismark, spoke to more chairs than there were people.
“This is very embarrassing it looks bad it is as if there are no people in Zimbabwe, now the American visitors will think Zimbabwe is a nation of heathens who prefer carnivals to revivals. Bishop Tudor and whoever else was behind this definitely have been left with egg on face.” Said one attendee who spoke to this paper.
Other attendees who spoke to this paper conveniently tried to make us believe that this was a private ceremony to welcome the American Bishop TD Jakes. However, other observers believed this was just a spin put out to mitigate the low turnout at this much talked about event.
The event has come at the same time with the Harare Carnival which has dominated headlines with the controversial Zodwa WaBantu as the main attraction. Never has any one person caused so much controversy and created such media hype in the recent past as Zodwa WaBantu.
It can be argued that the Bishops and the church folk have been upstaged by Zodwa WaBantu or is it the carnival?
Efforts to get word from the organisers of this event we fruitless as phones went unanswered.
