See Why Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini says Covid19 is punishment from God and how we can defeat it

The Zulu king made his first address to his subjects on Saturday since the lockdown was enacted. His address was done through a facebook broadcast.

King Goodwill Zwelithini in his address said the current pandemic was a punishment from God.“We must admit that we angered Jehovah, that is why he is punishing us, he is humbling us. This tells me God wants us as a nation, he wants his time with us as a nation. It's a time where God wanted us to prepare, in connecting with him, not just to meet at churches, he wanted a one-on-one with us,” the king said.

The Monarch believes Africans have strayed from God, and we were feeling his wrath. He added ,"ifAfrica went back to God, he will protect us."

The Zulu king made a call for a joint effort between those who believe in indegenous medicine and the scientists to find a cure. The King lamented the current situation in which while medical researchers are working day and night to find a cure, others were using their own ways of dealing with the flue which they believe in but have not undergone the necessary tests.

He called for those with indegenous knowledge to share with the doctors. This he feels might be of great help in fighting the pandemic.

He also expressed particular concern for the people now that winter was upon us. He advised people to listen to Government directives as they attempt to save lives.

“Our generation is facing the task of eradicating this virus, many people have died. Let us not take this lightly, I am asking you to prioritise your health and listen to your government. That will prevent us from perishing from this disease.

“It is now winter, and flu will be rampant. Don't say it will not get you. It is also dangerous because its symptoms don't come early, so we must be careful now. Listen to the government, the health department because they have access to world information on this disease,” he explained.

King Goodwill Zwelithini also offered condolences to those that have lost loved ones due to the coronavirus.
