Opposition politician and leader of the MDC Alliance party Nelson Chamisa has come under fire following his remarks about idolatry and religion. Some people took exception to Chamisa’s words, claiming that he was insulting the statue of Mbuya Nehanda as well as African traditional religion.

The statue of the liberation icon and spirit medium Nehanda Charwe Nyakasikana, popularly known as just Mbuya Nehanda was unveiled on Africa Day by President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

The day before the unveiling of the statue, Chamisa who is also a pastor, shared a verse from the Bible.

But you shall destroy their altars, break their sacred pillars, and cut down their wooden images. For you shall worship no other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God. Exodus 34:13-14

This did not go down well with some people who accused Chamisa of looking down on and insulting the country’s traditions and indigenous religion. Some quarters also accused the charismatic politician of religious fundamentalism and of trying to impose his Christian religion on everyone else. However, some defended Chamisa, saying that he is free to air his views on anything. Others also agreed with his sentiments and quoted their own Bible verses in support.
