Jehovah’s Witnesses will resume large in-person assemblies next month around the globe after suspending them for the past two years due to COVID-19.
A total of 110 assemblies will be held here in Zimbabwe in 2023.
“Everyone is invited!” said Kudakwashe Chikuvadze, spokesperson of Jehovah’s Witnesses of Zimbabwe.
“For the benefit of all, information will be presented in local languages, including Venda, Tonga, Ndebele, Shona, Zimbabwe Sign Language, and English. “We have also set up local venues convenient for the attendees across the country, from Victoria Falls all the way to Beitbridge,” he said. In Zimbabwe, there were 153 716 attendees in 2019, with more expected this year.
“To avoid unnecessarily putting others at risk, we have taken the necessary precautions to protect attendees from COVID-19. We encourage all in attendance to respect COVID-19 protocols in line with the recommendations from health officials,” Chikuvadze said.
A streaming programme will be set up for those who have flu-like symptoms or those who have recently been exposed to someone with COVID-19.
