Ebola reading material.
Windhoek — The Minister of Health and Social Services Dr Richard Kamwi has appealed to Namibians seeking prayers and spiritual healing from Nigerian preacher TB Joshua to hold over their plans until the deadly Ebola virus is brought under control in West Africa.
Kamwi’s appeal comes after a 49-year-old woman who arrived at Hosea Kutako International Airport on 5 August after allegedly visiting TB Joshua in Nigeria, was cleared of Ebola after being kept under observation for 21 days at the Windhoek State Hospital.
Last week New Era reported about a group of 20 Namibians who arrived in the country from Nigeria and were all taken in for medical check-ups as government tried to detect any Ebola cases.
It is understood that the group had travelled to Nigeria to seek spiritual healing from TB Joshua, Africa’s most popular televangelist and supposed spiritual healer.
