Pastor Sunday Adelaja, of GOD Embassy Church, in Ukraine, has asked Bill Gates and Melinda Foundation for forgiveness, because Africans across the world have criticized Melinda Gates for her statement of ‘dead bodies in the streets Africa’, which according to the Pastor was taken out of context.
Pastor Sunday Adelaja, 52, founder of one of the largest pentecostal churches in Ukraine, reacted to the report that Nigerian politician, Femi Fani-Kayode, sent a message to Melinda Gates with negative connotation over her comments that they will be dead bodies in Africa amidst COVID-19.
“My heart is in Africa. I’m worried. The only reason why the reported cases of the coronavirus disease in Africa is low now is most likely because there have not been wide testing of people. The disease is going to bite hard on the continent. I see dead bodies in the streets of Africa,” Mrs. Gates said.
Melinda Gates in a recent CNN interview warned about the crisis facing the African continent, “COVID-19 will be horrible in the developing world”, she said, citing there will be dead bodies in the streets of Africa like in Ecuador.
Pastor Sunday Adelaja urges Africans to tender an apology to the billionaire woman, her husband and the foundation for spreading fake news about them while they have spent over 25 years working for Africa.
Melinda Gates has expressed worry over the possible effects on Africa of the coronavirus pandemic, her quote that dead bodies will lither the streets of Africa was featured in most African tabloids and newspapers overnight.
In 2015 Bill Gates gave a TED Talk where he expressed his concerns that the world is not ready for the upcoming outbreak here, he was already working a new vaccine but didn’t know that it will be coronavirus at the time.
Africans around the world didn’t buy the idea that Bill Gates and his foundation are coming up with a vaccine following the controversial statement that Melinda Gates gave during her CNN interview.
Pastor Sunday said in the video that he once sat with Bill Gates, Richard Branson and Warren Buffet in a meeting discussing projects for Africa and at the event, the billionaires pledged money that same day.
The clergymen further said that Africans owe the Gates an apology for rejecting their plans to bring a solution to help stop the spread of the virus in Africa because these are unfounded and lies spread against them.
“On behalf of our African, bother and sisters, I want to use this opportunity to ask for forgiveness from Bill Gates, Melinda Gates and their family, and the foundation to evil has been spoken against you without foundation, without reason, I am very very sorry, please don’t hold this against us,” Pastor Sunday said at the end of the broadcast.
