A Zimbabwean nurse who is a pastor has passed away in Nottingham.
The mother of two, Anna Chibwana, was also a pastor’s wife. Her husband, Edwin, is a close colleague of Christ Embassy church founder, Chris Oyakhilome.
They’ve been together running a church in the east Midlands, called The New Creation church.
A family member, a niece described Anna as ‘a loving mother who was always hardworking.’
She passed away following a combined struggle with COVID and colon cancer.
She had colon cancer before and was later diagnosed COVID positive after hospitalisation, a church elder told ZimEye.
A former church media employee described Pastor Anna as a dedicated mother, a hard worker who was working hard to look after her family in the UK and in Zimbabwe.
