"Mtakua Zombies" Bishop Who Mocked Kenya Over COVID-19 Discourages Tanzanians From Vaccine-VIDEO

Tanzanian preacher, Bishop Josephat Gwajima who is also a Member of Parliament of the current parliament, has today given his stand on the COVID-19 vaccine, a few hours after Tanzania received the donation of the vaccine.

Tanzania on Friday received its first consignment of the COVID-19 vaccine from the United States of America.

The Swahili speaking nation received a total of 1 million doses.

Bishop Gwajima has since used the opportunity to air out his stand on the vaccine while preaching in his church.

He has said it is good that President Samia Suluhu Hassan is not forcing anyone to take the vaccine.

The preacher believes the President was put under pressure, which left her with no option but to allow the importation of the vaccine.

He noted that President Samia did not want to go through what her predecessor, John Pombe Magufuli, went through when he refused to do what other nations were doing when COVID-19 hit the world.

He said other nations branded Magufuli as a fool for his stand on COVID-19

According to Bishop Gwajima, Tanzanians who are wise are not going to take the COVID-19 jab, adding that those who want to be vaccinated should prepare for anything, including allegedly turning into being zombies.

"Imeiweka pale iwe self-service, anaye taka aendee mwenye, ajidunge mwenyewe, baadae uwe zombie mwenyewe (She has imported the vaccine and it there for free for those willing to take it, those willing should self-vaccinate themselves, and later turn into zombies by themselves).

Bishop Gwajima made headlines in 2020 when he mocked Kenya over COVID-19. By then, Kenya had suspended gatherings in worship centres while Magufuli had allowed Tanzanians to worship freely.
