Mnangagwa Sets 15th Of June As The Day For The Nation To Defeat Coronavirus Through Prayer And Fasting
Following in the footsteps of his Tanzanian counterpart Magufuli, President Emmerson Mnangagwa of Zimbabwe has proclaimed the 15th of June 2020 as the National Day of Prayer and Fasting to defeat Coronavirus in the country.
Tanzanian Magufuli declared last Friday his country was now Covid-19 free after he had urged his nation to pray the virus away.“The corona disease has been eliminated thanks to God,” Magufuli said, speaking with worshipers at a church in Dodoma.
While presenting the 19th Cabinet Meeting Decision Matrix last night, Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa announced the president would soon choose a day the nation would be expected to pray and fast over the increased number of Covid-19 patients in the country.
“We wish to advise that His Excellency the President is set to officially announce a day of fasting and national prayer,” she said. Likewise, the Zimbabwean president has announced the 15th of June 2020 as the set date. The church service will be broadcasted live on the country’s sole television station, ZBC from 10 am to 12 pm with church leaders and the whole nation invited.
Zimbabwe’s hope to improve the economy and rewrite its dark past on human rights abuses has faded under Mnangagwa’s regime. Strained too by the deadly coronavirus effects as cases spike daily, the government has seen prayer and fasting as the last resolve.
Mnangagwa’s government has had a series of national prayer and fasting days over what the government deem are stumbling blocks to their success in governing the country.
Recent among these was the one held last week after Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe’s governor, Mangudya lamented over the demonic attacks on the Zimbabwean economy which has plunged at the sharpest rate in history. A national day of prayer and fasting was also done sometime last year over the sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe by the U.S.
ZANU PF government is in the hope that a national day of prayer and fasting would bring about reforms people of Zimbabwe and the world at large so much await.
