Controversial pastor Talent Chiwenga who was involved in an accident which claimed the lives of his wife, son and sister-in-law near Chatsworth turn-off at the 80-kilometre peg along the Harare-Masvingo highway on Wednesday morning is reported to be in a stable condition in a local hospital, Zim Morning Post has learnt.
His physical state was stable and he was actually in a position to afford local journalists a recorded video bedside interview .
Normally a patient in intensive care unit is allowed to be visited and entertain only closest members of the family.
In the bedside interview with a local online publication, Chiwenga made sensational claims that the vehicle he was driving (Toyota Fortuner) was been trailed by unknown people.
“My son in law advised me not mention my name since the assailants were still around.
“I only got assistance to the hospital from well –wishers whom I do not even know,” he told journalists in a recorded video.
Chiwenga has in the past claimed that he was a target from security agents and just a fortnight ago he made startling claims that his family was in danger.
In his latest recorded video that went viral on social media on Thursday, he said ‘he does not fear death’ and he will maintain his stance and political alignment.
In the past, the church was said to be apolitical but this has since changed as different denominations have openly took sides.
Meanwhile, outspoken political activist Jealous Mawarire who has previously acted as former president Robert Mugabe’s ‘de facto’ spokesperson dismissed Chiwenga’s claims of an ‘assassination plot’.
