Zimbabweans warned T.B Joshua visits Ebola risky

Government has urged Zimbabweans seeking prayers and healing sessions from Nigerian prophets to reconsider visiting that country as it moves to curb a possible Ebola outbreak.

In an interview at Mpilo Central Hospital in Bulawayo yesterday, Health and Child Care Minister, Dr David Parirenyatwa, said Zimbabweans visiting Nigeria for prayer sessions were putting their lives at great risk since several cases of Ebola had been recorded in that country.

Zimbabweans flock to the West African country mainly to attend services by Prophet TB Joshua of the Synagogue Church of all Nations.

Ebola, the deadliest virus known to man, has killed at least 1 145 people in Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia since it broke out in March.

Dr Parirenyatwa assured the nation that no Ebola cases had been detected in Zimbabwe or the Sadc region.

“We are discouraging our people from going to Ebola hit countries. Last week we received a group of 50 Zimbabweans from Nigeria.

“They were coming from a prayer session with one of the prophets there,” he said.

“As we are saying, please postpone those prayer trips to Nigeria. For now pray from here. You can do it from here. Fifty people is a large number that can put the country at risk.”

Dr Parirenyatwa said the country would monitor people suspected to have Ebola, especially those from the affected countries, for 21days.
