The body of the late Ezekiel Guti Junior, who died on December 28 last year, is expected to arrive in the country from South Africa tomorrow (Friday).
Ezekiel Junior died in South Africa where he was battling for his life in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) after he allegedly fell into a swimming pool.
In a statement distributed to all ZAOGA (FIF) assemblies, the programme is set to start Friday evening at City Sports Centre with a number of speakers expected to address guests.
On Saturday, a five-hour body viewing ceremony is set to commence from 10am to 3pm at AMFCC Bible School and it will be open for all mourners.
The body on the late evangelist will be laid to rest at Glen Forest cemetery on Sunday where scores of people are expected to attend the burial.
Meanwhile, church leaders from different denominations in the country and abroad have passed their condolence messages to the Guti family and ZAOGA church.
Abiding Hope Global Ministries leader Bishop Vukani Dhladhla said he was saddened with the death of Ezekiel Junior.
“The news of the death of EJ came to us as a great shock, I was so disturbed, in my own personal capacity I have been praying for ZAOGA church as well as the Guti family in their time of bereavement.
“I pray that the Holy Spirit continues to comfort them and strengthen them,” he said.
Ezekiel Guti Junior died aged 34 and he was married to Caroline Katsande.
The couple was blessed with three children.
Faith in You Ministries leader, Elijah Makonyore said he is still coming to terms with the death of EJ.
“It is so hard to accept the death of someone whom you would have seen great potential in, Ezekiel Guti Junior’s life was a testimony on itself.
“Some of us who have the history of how he was born know that indeed his life was in God’s hands, now that he is gone we accept God’s will but with a heavy heart,” he said.
