A section of political leaders championing the fight against the corona virus in slum areas now want the government to consider the re-opening of churches and mosques saying the spiritual nourishment in fighting COVID-19 is also vital.
Speaking when distributing food stuffs to Soweto Kayole residents ,Evans Oluoch says the churches play a vital role in the society and it’s not logical to sideline them in the re-opening process.
‘‘Am calling upon the government to re-open the churches and mosques we need prayers and spiritual strength to fight COVID-19, we can’t ignore them and re-open hotels.’’ He said.
On Wednesday, Oluoch gave out 700 masks, hand sanitizers, water and foods stuffs to 600 households in Soweto Lower Savannah.
‘‘We want to ask other well-wishers to join hands with us and give out the little they can afford. People are suffering in slums,’’ He added.
