Southern Africa country, Zimbabwe, has celebrated the life of Archbishop Professor Ezekiel Handinawangu Guti who turned 100 years old.

According to the President of the Republic of Zimbabwe, Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa, Prof. Ezekiel has done so much to help spread the gospel in Zimbabwe and across the world.

He wrote in his twitter handle “Today is a truly significant day”.

“We celebrated the amazing life of Archbishop Professor Ezekiel Handinawangu Guti, who turned 100 years old. He is the founder of ZAOGA and has done so much to help spread the gospel in Zimbabwe and across the world”.

“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good – Psalm 107:1” he Twitted.

Ezekiel Handinawangu Guti, born 5 May 1923 is popularly referred to as the founder of Zimbabwe Assemblies of God Africa (ZAOGA), however Guti has always maintained that “This church is not mine – it belongs to God.”

ZAOGA was founded in 1960.

There is also a common misconception that ZAOGA ‘broke away’ from AFM. That has never been the case. Guti had joined an AFM branch but left after being used mightily of God at the time, and was pushed out by senior pastors who feared that Guti will one day take the assembly and its congregants. Hence Guti, under a call from God, established ZAOGA in Bindura, Zimbabwe, under a gum tree, in 1960.

ZAOGA is also known internationally as Forward in Faith Ministries International and is headquartered in Waterfalls, Harare, Zimbabwe. In the United Kingdom, ZAOGA is now known as Forward In faith Church International Incorporated (FIFCII)

A gifted evangelist, Prof E.H. Guti has distinguished himself as a leading personality in the Pentecostal world. He oversees over 5000 pastors and evangelists worldwide, who regard him as a unique prophet, apostle and a loving father.
