Queen Esther says Sunday is not true day of worship



Unapologetic as ever, Her Majesty Queen Esther, the Prophetess of the Most High, Elijah III has condemned the State for aiding and abetting “treason against God” by making people go to work on the Sabbath (Saturday).

The prophetess has a message for Batswana that, “Sunday is not a true day of worship. It is a day that the Catholic Church invented to oppose and annoy the Almighty.” She maintains that “God of the Bible” does not recognise Sunday as worship day. “Sunday is the first day of the week. Saturday (Sabbath) is the seventh day of the week, which according to Exodus 20 is the eighth Commandment (Remember the Sabbath to keep it holy).”  In fact the Prophetess says Sunday worship came about as a result of a Papal edict as part of the greater conspiracy against God the Creator. She says the Devil has “deviated the world” from worshipping on Sabbath because he knows that the Sabbath has “very serious blessings” for humanity.

“If only humanity had stuck to the Sabbath they would be brilliant, they would be wealthy, they wouldn’t be sick,” she says. “Now the Devil is the enemy of God and a human being. Also he is aspiring for majesty. He knows that the territory of the Almighty is heaven and earth. So if he diverts people from worshipping on Sabbath he knows that the Creator is neglected and spat on the eye.” She says the Devil doesn’t care what people worship as long as it doesn’t reflect the Creator God.

“You can worship dogs, you can worship cows, you can worship the sun, you can worship Mary, the Devil doesn’t care!” The prophetess says being aware of this, she wrote to President Ian Khama to warn him that the, “Almighty says it is high treason for you to be allowing the children to be going to school on Sabbath Saturday and allowing workers to work on Saturday. It is an insultive issue upon His throne.

The Sabbath is God’s throne, so do this, if you don’t your political inclination is going to collapse.” She says if we look at the current political affairs they show the state is in trouble. “I was shown the Botswana flag flung into the great ocean. And then I pushed it. There were people from the west and the east trying to get hold of the flag and I pushed it to the north. It means that the kingdom of whoever has now gone back. We are now starting the Kingdom of the Almighty. Political people are now doomed. I am going to rule with Kings, ka gore Modimo o batla dikgosi. As it is politicians are just thieves and they don’t know what they are doing.

Chiefs and Kings are people of the minds of the Almighty!” says the outspoken, fearless prophetess who says she is guarded by angels in chariots of fire at her temporary residence in Thamaga. “There are so many gods, and I am going to eradicate them,” she warned. “I am going to teach the world how to worship the Lord of Heaven and keep the Sabbath and to get rid of all these marriages of same sex, to get rid of wars and starvation. There is going to be peace! This is the time when the demons are going to be destroyed,” she promised.

“There is nobody preaching the right Gospel now. People don’t know about Jesus, Moslems are doing their own thing they are killing people, atrocities are coming from the Moslem world, the Catholics are killing people! I am going to get rid of this Muslim worship, this Catholic worship, worshipping Maria.
People must worship the Creator God!” The Prophetess affirms that she is the “only person alive” that can face the Pope and tell him that, “You are wrong the people are following you, just turn and worship the Lord on the seventh day Sabbath.”

The MidweekSun Admin



University of Botswana students are bracing themselves for the Student Representative Council (SRC) elections. Contenders are fighting tooth and nail to appease the electorate. Three camps are in contention to fill the 13 council positions.

Umbrella for Democratic Change’s (UDC) Moono-wa-Baithuti has the onerous task of defending all the 13 seats which they hauled at the last elections of 2018. “As Moono wa Baithuti, we have lots of achievements. We are on the verge of getting the student bar open, so we need to go back and fix what we started,” said UDC’s Tumelo Legase who is vying for the position of Vice President.

He said they have advocated for student empowerment policies and are also proposing a third arm of student representation. “We have the SRC and the Judiciary, what we need is the student Parliament so that we have a large number of leaders who can independently attend to problems across the university.” The dark horse in this race is the University of Botswana’s Alliance for Progressive (AP) which will take another leap of faith despite their loss in the previous election.

They are rejuvenated and redefined. Candidate for Vice President Karabo Bokwe said central to their mandate is making the welfare of the student community a priority. “We want to help eradicate school policies that border on oppression, and through new polices call for initiatives that come with enterprenuership benefits to students.”

AP candidate for Information and Publicity, a first year Criminal Justice student Gracious Selelo said they are more united than other parties even at national level. “We don’t have internal squabbles within our party, we are more focused and can deliver our mandate easily,” she noted.

However the ruling party’s BDP GS-26 will come with all guns blazing after an embarrassing defeat in the previous elections. Preparations have been made and the GS-26 is looking to take the elections by storm.

According to their Presidential Candidate Boniface Seane, they come with the message of hope that addresses the current status quo at the University.“The university is not functioning so we drew three policies that embrace inclusiveness. We want to lead collectively with the students, through the student body meetings which the previous SRCs have failed to do. “We will consult with the students with no discrimination.”

Healthcare system to improve



The Health ministry has developed a seven-point programme to guide the country in improving the healthcare system, says Minister of Health and Wellness, Dr Alfred Rabashemi Madigele.

“The seven priority areas will serve as a roadmap and a guardian angel towards improving the overall healthcare system and increasing access to health care while fighting the burden of disease that confronts us,” said Madigele at Masa Square Hotel on Tuesday.

The focal areas include decentralisation; Universal Health Coverage, Tertiary Care, Strategic leveraging on the Private sector; Supply Chain; Research as well as Staff welfare and accountability.
Point-one of the seven priority areas according to Dr Madigele is about empowering the District Health Management Teams (DHMTs) and transforming them into fully fledged Regional Health Authorities.

“In this case, they will be rationalised from 27 to 18 and have the authority to hire A and B Scales, promote up to C1 and manage micro procurement,” he said. Point two is about improving the quality of healthcare services. “The main causes of mortality and their risk factors in Botswana are Primary Health Care issues,” Dr Madigele said.

He added that “Our efforts for the attainment of Universal Health Coverage should thus focus on: Prevention; Comprehensive screening; Early treatment; and Surveillance at the community.”
This he said, would require revamped grassroots efforts in which adequate numbers of community health workers through partnerships with the non-governmental sector will be deployed as necessary.

According to Dr Madigele, the top five causes of death in Botswana in 2017 were HIV/AIDS, Ischemic heart disease, stroke, lower respiratory infections and Diabetes. He said compared to 2007, NCDs among these had increased in burden by an average of 34%. The top five risk factors related to these causes of mortality were unsafe sex; poor diet; high blood pressure; alcohol abuse and tobacco use.

Improving the quality of care, Madigele said will also include the safety and security of patients; attitudes of staff as experienced by patients; time taken in queues either before seeing a health worker or receiving medication and the availability of drugs.

Meanwhile, the health minister revealed that the commissioning of Sir Ketumile Masire Teaching Hospital (SKMTH) is ongoing with the facility scheduled for opening on April 24th. “This will be a phased approach commencing with some services including paediatric oncology, internal medicine, rheumatology and endocrinology, diagnostic radiology, laboratory services and pharmacy”.

A phased commissioning of SKMTH will reduce overdependence on South Africa for referrals, reduce costs and also institutionalise provision of super specialist services within Botswana.
