Mutumwa Paul Mwazha turns 102 years today. It’s a good day for the African Apostolic Church as they celebrate Mutumwa Paul Mwazha’s birthday. The leader has just turned 102 years. As we celebrate his birthday we thought we should share with you some of the information you need to know about this great man when it comes to religious circles.
Paul Mwazha is the leader of the African Apostolic Church and that he was born on 25 October 1918. He was born at Holy Cross Mission, Chirumanzu District, near the small town of Mvuma, in the Midlands Province of Zimbabwe.
It is stated that Mwazha was initially named Mamvura upon his birth by his mother Saramina but was later on named Paul in relation to the catholic tradition of naming newly baptised children by giving them a saint’s name.
It is believed that he was baptised by Father Schmidt, a German Roman Catholic missionary. Soon after baptism, Pindula notes that Paul became seriously ill with a highly contagious disease, influenza and he is believed to have subsequently died.
This prompted his mother to rush him for baptism as well as for the last rites at the altar in the church before burial proceedings were conducted. Immediately after his baptism and to the amazement of everyone in the room, it is stated by the Sunday-Mail that Paul is believed to have sprung back to life immediately.
It is said that Father Schmidt and the gathered congregation were all filled with the Holy Spirit and they all uttered in Shona language saying, ‘Mwana amutsirwe basa, mwana amutsirwe basa, mwana amutsirwe basa’, loosely translated to English as, ‘The child has been raised for a mission’. His followers, who are mainly members of The African Apostolic Church adore him to such an extent that they prominently mentions his name during their prayers. Paul is believed to have learnt and started the Roman Catholic Catechism classes at the age of 11.
Happy birthday sir.
