Earlier in 2012 a film was released in the media highlighting the ruling party, Zanu-PF, using the apostolic church's influence in the country as a tool for propaganda before the planned elections.
This follow-up film highlights further efforts of the ruling party to use the Vadzidzi VaJesu church to promote the interests of the ruling party. Furthermore, nepotism within the party and its election campaign is also identified with clear links made between the ruling party's and the church's leadership.
With the promise of national elections, and with campaigning on the rise, there is much speculation into the future of the country's political destiny. With the severe socio-economic challenges the country faces ranging from a lack of clean running water to even basic public sanitation services, there are fears of more violent escalation in the run-up to the election, especially with the identified rise in propaganda by competing parties.
