The Freedom Pastor, Once More

Listeners to “Q&A” know Evan Mawarire already. He is Zimbabwe’s “freedom pastor,” a leader of the democratic opposition. He was a guest on this podcast two years ago: here. Jay wrote a piece about him, here. At the time, Pastor Evan was leading a movement against Robert Mugabe, the longtime dictator. Now Mugabe is gone – and Pastor Evan is still leading the struggle, as the government is as cruel as ever, if not more so. Once more, the freedom pastor is in grave trouble, having continued to stick his neck out. To listen to Evan Mawarire is to be amazed and inspired.

    Horrible story. It seems getting rid of Mugabe turned out to be a non-event for those fighting for freedom. Pastor Evan is an inspiration. Thanks for sharing (and if you don’t have time for the podcast, a brief summary is up at NR. It is worthwhile)

    How inspiring.  So sorry to hear that Zimbabwe is no better off now that Mugabe is gone but, again, inspired that Pastor Evan and his companions are trying to change things.
