Female Pastor Faces Backlash for Asking People to Gather, Pray Amid Coronavirus Pandemic


Section of netizens in Kenya has taken a swipe at televangelist Lucy Natasha for inviting Kenyans to convene in the country’s capital, Nairobi and pray for the fast spreading coronavirus pandemic.

In a 51-seconds video clip shared on her social media platforms, Natasha said the Monday, March 16, prayer will be convened at 680 Hotel where congregants will pray for the virus thas has since its outbreak killed over 4,700.

Those who reacted to the clip said the preacher was irresponsible and was acting against the government’s directive to suspend all public gatherings.

“This is very irresponsible of you. Can people just stay at home?” Miss Patricia reacted on Twitter.

Natasha revealed that she had just arrived in the country from Ghana (one of the African countries that have reported cases of coronavirus) where she had gone to for a religious function.

While in Ghana, the preacher met the country’s former head of state John Dramani Mahama and she “had fruitful discussions and equally briefed him on her ministry engagements”.

The preacher said during the “Miracle Monday Service”, she will lead the faithful in praying for the virus that has sent over 100 countries on lockdown.

Over 150,000 people have been infected. Over 60,000, according to health agencies, have healed from the infection.

“I know we are in a time when there is soo anxiety because of coronavirus but tonight, we will be declaring Pslams 91 of our lives. We will be praying against coronavirus. We will be pleading the blood of Jesus.

I want you to know that no weapon fashioned against us will prosper. We have taken various measures to provide sanitisers to the Miracle Monday family members. See you tonight,” said Natasha.

While taking a swipe at the Natasha, a tweep identified as Kenyan Boy reminded the woman of God that in South Korea, the disease broke out in a church were worshipers had gone to pray and this sent the country under the throes of the killer virus.

“It is because of such irresponsible actions that South Korea has a full blown covid19. Patient 31 defied doctor’s’warning and went to church twice.

70% of South Korea infections are traced to the church, 8,000+ infected, 80+ dead. Tell your followers to pray from home, let them livestream services,” Kenyan Boy commented.

According authorities in South Korea, the disease was spread by a person they tagged as ‘Patient 31’ – a member of the Shincheonji church.

Local authorities in Seoul filed a formal complaint against the church an accused it of murder after 29 people lost their lives shortly after the early March 2020 incident.
