A pastor and former presidential candidate in Cameroon had reportedly been laying hands on the sick in hopes to cure them of the coronavirus disease. Unfortunately, the pastor contracted the virus himself and died from it.
Sources say that Frankline Ndifor died last May 16 at the age of 39 less than a week after being diagnosed with COVID-19
Ndifor is the founder of the Kingship International Ministries Church in the Central African state. One of his followers said that the pastor had been laying hands and praying over people who were suspected to be carriers, had symptoms, and even diagnosed with the coronavirus disease. He told Voice of America, “If you, the person that claims that you are curing COVID-19, you are dead, what about the fellow people that were affected by the COVID-19? Now that he is dead, I do not know how the people that he was laying hands on will be healed.”
The “miracle healer” also allegedly donated buckets and soap to the poor to protect themselves from the virus by washing their hands. His last public appearance was said to be last April 20 when he went out into the streets of his hometown, Douala, to distribute facemasks.
Cameroon’s medical staff are asking all those who came in contact with the pastor to report to hospitals for COVID-19 testing.
