Shana, who is a member of the Anti-Corruption Commission of Zimbabwe, castigated politicians for visiting churches and wearing garments as if they were members while campaigning for votes.
Speaking during the belated Anti-Corruption World Day commemorations in Bulawayo last week, Shana said instead, churches must give politicians guidance on how they should lead the country in a Godly manner.
“We see politicians these days visiting churches and wearing church garments, even when they do not belong to those churches. that is wrong,” said Shana.
“The church must not be used as a political vehicle.”
In the past few months, several senior Zanu PF and MDC-T officials have been seen donning church regalia as part of their efforts to get votes from the unsuspecting members.
