Ezekiel Guti Succession
In July 2021, Dr Dorcas Jaricha, alongside her siblings Gracious Chikore and La-Verne Simukai, allegedly played influential roles in purging senior members of ZAOGA Forward in Faith Ministries International, such as Washington Rupapa. The reported reason behind these actions was to isolate the founder, Ezekiel Guti, and pave the way for succession.
According to sources, tensions were rising within the ministry, and the situation had the potential to lead to a split. Dr Dorcas Jaricha and her siblings were identified as key players in the ongoing purges. Speculations arose about the succession plans of Ezekiel Guti, with some interpreting the anointing of Joseph Guti, his son, as a potential successor. However, Joseph Guti was reportedly being gradually pushed aside.
Reports indicated that Dr Dorcas Jaricha and her siblings had allegedly held their father hostage at his Chitungwiza home under the pretext that he had been instructed to work from there. The situation was described as an involuntary house arrest, with external forces exerting influence over Ezekiel Guti’s management until his eventual passing.
These reports added fuel to the speculations surrounding power struggles within the church, with claims that the younger generation had seized control, leading to a power shift known as “Chinhu chatorwa ne G40 yemuchurch” (the church’s younger generation has grabbed power).
