The Johanne Masowe YeChishanu apostolic sect has rolled out a coronavirus awareness programme for congregants and members of the community at large.
The nationwide initiative was launched in Chiredzi over the weekend and is aimed at encouraging the sect’s followers into adopting and implementing COVID-19 guidelines.
Speaking on the sidelines of the event, the Chiredzi-based apostolic sect leader, Madzibaba Tyregy Chigadzira, real name Wilfred Hunana, said:
The event marked the beginning of an initiative by our church to increase awareness on coronavirus as the pandemic has affected all of us and we are in this together, hence we need to come out and fight this together.
We have been educating our members on how to protect themselves against coronavirus, including aspects to do with social distancing, personal hygiene and wearing and proper disposal of used face masks.
