Barely a fortnight after he was told to repent during the Swakopmund town hall meeting, President Hage Geingob found himself confessing his sins this morning at State House.
During a visit from Ghanaian healing evangelist Dag Heward-Mills, he prayed for the president and Namibia this morning and spontaneously asked the president, his staff and his guests to pray along and repent their sins and wickedness.
During his prayer Heward Mills rebuked the “demonic powers that rule over the Namibian nation” and asked God that the “Namibian children” not be given over to drugs, alcohol, prostitution, sickness, gangers and armed robbery.
“We are happy to find out you are a God-fearing man. Even this morning you went to church and you are seeing us directly after church. Many people who come into power, they do not go to church. Most presidents, they do not go to church, we see them at churches during elections,” said Heward Mills.
The state visit follows a range of church services by Heward-Mills and his Healing Jesus Campaign team which included an alleged resurrection which took place in Oshakati and can now be watched on YouTube.
The evangelist, who is listed as one of the 10 richest pastors in Ghana, and his team, visited Rundu, Oshakati and Katima Mulilo last week.
He also commended Geingob for his administration’s openness to foreign visitors which allowed him and his team to visit Namibia.
