Festus Kenyamo, the Minister of State for Labour and Employment took his twitter to said that God has allowed COVID-19 to afflict the human race only to redirect our steps back to Him.
“Let’s use this period of partial lockdown to reignite old friendships and our common humanity. It’s not a period of gloom, but precaution. Call up old friends; search for your childhood playmates on social media and chat them up. Soon, we shall return to our crazy daily schedules.
“Aside the spiritual angle to this scourge, we must all work and pray; God can only help those who help themselves. Those our recalcitrant Pastors must realise this. All the directives of NCDC must be followed to the letter by all and sundry before it can quickly end in praise.
“God has allowed COVID-19 to afflict the human race only to redirect our steps back to Him. We have so distorted God’s Word to suit our own human weaknesses and satisfy our greed, even in supposed Holy Places. We should collectively ask for forgiveness & it will all end in praise.
