Government to punish any pastor who will lay hands on members for deliverance.
In an interview with Accra FM monitored by Hypeghnewsroom.com, the information minister, Hon Kwadwo Nkrumah, made it clear that various religious bodies should adhere to social distance in their churches and mosques.
Pastors will, he claims, desist from laying hands on children. It is for stopping covid19 from spreading. The government will punish every pastor who goes against it, he added.
The first Phase includes opening up religious places of worships from June 5, albeit with certain conditions.
“Religious institutions that are desirous of opening their premises to their members, such as churches, mosques and others, must disinfect, fumigate and put in place the requisite logistics needed to guarantee safe opening and operation.
“They must work with the designated, regulatory bodies and undertake test runs of the protocols I have outlined,” the President said.
According to him, the Religious Affairs Minister, will outline in detail, the specific guidelines for the safe reopening of our churches and mosques today.
