Government has a mammoth task ahead in its attempt to convince members of the public about accepting the COVID-19 vaccine as a lifesaving drug. There is so much talk about it literally being the mark of the beast if not the devil incarnate itself. There has been talk about it being a Bill Gates project aimed at eliminating all Africans at once with the vaccine and then taking it over for the white race of the northern hemisphere. The surge in numbers of deaths from coronavirus and those testing positive has split public opinion in the middle. Most people would rather take the vaccine, live a few days then die than to simply ignore it and die, the very same day they are to make the choice. Pro vaccine advocates rally behind the simple argument that those in denial that the vaccine is indispensable at this time of the pandemic because those resisting the introduction of the vaccine are in fact conspiracy theorists. On the other hand Brian Ellis posted on Facebook recently: “Conspiracy realist or coincidence theorist? Here’s an interesting one…Conspiracy realist or coincidence theorist. What’s the difference? I’ll show you-this is a coincidence theory – the Chinese biological laboratory in Wuhan is owned by Glaxosmithkline who (by coincidence) owns Pfizer! (the one who produces the vaccine of the virus that by coincidence) started in the biological laboratory in Wuhan, which (by coincidence) was funded by Dr. Fauc who is (by coincidence) promoting the vaccine. Glaxosmithkline (by coincidence) is managed by Black Rock finances who (by coincidence) manage the finances of the Open Foundation Company (Soros Foundation) which (by coincidence) serves the French AXA. By coincidence Soros owns the German company Winterthur which (by coincidence) built the Chinese laboratory in Wuhan and was bought by the German Allianz which (by coincidence) has Vanguard as a shareholder, which (by coincidence) is a shareholder of Black Rock, which (by coincidence) controls the central banks and manages about one third of the global investment capital. Black Rock (by coincidence) is also a major shareholder of Microsoft, the property of Bill Gates, who (by coincidence) is a shareholder of Pfizer (which – you remember? Is selling the miracle vaccine and (by coincidence) is currently the first sponsor of WHO So now you understand how a dead bat sold in a wet market in China infected the entire planet!! Nomagugu Simelane-Zulu, South Africa’s Kwazulu Natal MEC says last week Thursday aggrieved community members in Umlazi, KwaMashu, and Ntuzuma set fire to recently installed 5G masts which resulted in multi-million damages to the telecommunication infrastructure. She says these acts were driven by conspiracy theorists claiming that 5G network towers were responsible for the spread of the virus through radio waves. Now Namagugu and her government must return to the community with what she calls the correct information and in the process engage traditional leaders, church leaders “to counter the spread of false information.” Infected At least for our purposes in Eswatini people are more concerned about not getting infected by COVID-19 and will take in anything from any quarter including unqualified authority such as Apostle Justice Dlamini of the Worship Centre who is completely innocent in everything medicine, let alone the basic understanding of the human anatomy. He has already prophesied a vaccine, kufutsa (steaming). He is so certain that nothing other than kufutsa can beat the virus. He goes further to say coronavirus medicinal cocktails should be taken alongside prayers. You pray on the one hand, take your meds and then steam on the other, then you are safe from coronavirus. Medicines Now the question is why then bother to import medicines from Wuhan laboratories when Apostle Mjusti has everything laid out for all. Many Apostle Justice followers take everything he says to be the gospel truth and will do whatever he tells them to do in the same manner some followers were made to inhale Doom while others drank Dettol because they were convinced by the simple word by someone calling themselves God’s intercessor. Eucalyptus from the Apostle Justice plantations or laboratories has become a hit by the roadside with idle school going children invading the commercial forest to harvest the leaves just to generate easy cash while not really caring about the consequences of making people steam with blue gum tree leaves. Apostle Justice’s knowledge of kufutsa could be informed by a past whereby the practice was common in every home before white medicine literally influenced our way of life. In the past it was common to visit the witchdoctor, or is it traditional healer, for treatment which often involved kufutsa. In this era of coronavirus when the whole world is searching for a cure Apostle Justice is offering us his own findings, kufutsa, that it is as good as a vaccine because, just like all other vaccines, it somewhat halts the effects of the killer disease. Come to think of it, truckloads of eucalyptus branches will be heading for Mavuso Trade Centre, Moneni TB Hospital or the Lubombo Referral Hospital where patients are waiting impatiently for a cure, just in case one kufutsa session will get rid of the symptoms. Considering the sizes of Montigny Forest in Bhunya, Mhlambanyatsi, the Shiselweni Forestry and the Swaziland Plantations in Pigg’s Peak one would rest assured that here is enough for everyone, including for export to Wuhan. While Apostle Justice is riding the tide as COVID-19 messiah with his kufutsa concoction, it must not be forgotten that he in fact ‘stole’ the thunder from his colleague in the gospel industry, Apostle Chaliyumba of Destiny International Christian Centre who was first to declare kufutsa as the resuscitator of those about to succumb to COVID-19. Apostle Justice took his discovery to another level by taking space all over social media with a very long rendition about what he called feleba, the killer disease, much to the amusement of his followers who were also quick to cover their heads with blankets while steaming away the virus. Any way a trend has been set, the buzzword is now kufutsa while the rest of the world continues to bicker about whether or not to accept the vaccines that have now become a subject of debate whether they are associated with the beast or are actually lifesaving. There is so much information out there, so much that at the end of the day there is no information that we can put to good use, instead there is misinformation, disinformation so that we are uninformed and ill-informed.
