Polokwane City defender Denis Chembezi has urged fellow footballers and all people to, while following preventive measures for Covid-19 pandemic, also reflect on their faith in God.
The Malawian international was responding to FARPost‘s question on his religious perspective to the pandemic and how he is coping with it.
“I am a Muslim and from a religious perspective, Quran already made it clear that there would be pestilences in the last days; hence, the coronavirus pandemic might be one of the indicators of the last days.
“Now in this time of the pandemic, we need to follow all preventive measures for the pandemic but also return to God. We need to renew our friendship with God,” Chembezi said.
He signed for ‘Rise and Shine’ a few months ago from Malawi giants Be Forward Wanderers on a three-year deal.
Chembezi said playing for the national team back home has helped him cope with demands of playing for the Premier Soccer League.
