Ghanaian rapper, Kwaw Kese, has criticised the Akufo-Addo led government for organizing a nationwide fasting and prayer as an approach to fighting the novel coronavirus.
According to him, instead of government mobilizing researchers from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology and other herbal practitioners to find a cure for the disease, it rather found solace in prayers which won’t solve our current predicament.
He, therefore, urged government to step up its game by being innovative than being spiritual.
President Akufo-Addo declared Wednesday, March 25 as a national day of fasting and prayer which was observed by many.
But Kwaw Kese taking to his Instagram account said “Ama Ghana has suffered and it’s pitiful. When the disease broke out in China, they didn’t call pastors to pray. They used medicine to fight it. Ghana! Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology what are we doing with it? There are many herbalists in Ghana but you called none of them. You rather chose to call pastors to pray against the virus. The same pastors who sleep with people’s wives and Legon female students? God is even angry with you for not using your brain,” he stated.
Ghana’s coronavirus cases have now increased to 137, with 3 deaths and one recovery.
