President Emmerson Mnangagwa has announced a virtual church service that will be attended by leaders of different denominations at State House in Harare from 10 am to noon.

The service will be held on Monday 15 June 2020 which was declared the Presidential National Day of Prayer and Fasting.

I urge you all on this day, to join us giving up one, two or all meals in fasting. It will be best to arrange to participate in this service as families, small groups, or church services not exceeding fifty people, and observing the precautions we have been taking to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Meanwhile, some Zimbabweans from all walks of life have scoffed at the call for fasting, arguing that they were already “fasting” as they cannot afford decent meals because of the economic hardships.

The government has been implored to deal with corruption, respect human rights and observe the rule of law in order to set the country on the path to prosperity based on Isaiah 58:6-7:

Is this not the fast that I have chosen:
To loose the bonds of wickedness,
To undo the [c]heavy burdens,
To let the oppressed go free,
And that you break every yoke?

Is it not to share your bread with the hungry,
And that you bring to your house the poor who are [d]cast out;
When you see the naked, that you cover him,
And not hide yourself from your own flesh?
