The local media fraternity in collaboration with local artists will lead a petition to save fellow citizens who are victims of religious beliefs that deter members from accessing health care assistance.

The petition match will start from the Three Dikgosi Monument tomorrow at 1 mid day and then proceed to the Ministry of Health and Wellness where the petition will be handed over the petition to the ministry. The campaign will be held under the theme, Access to Health Is A Right; Say No To Religious Deaths.

“The country continues to lose its citizens due to some religious beliefs that deter members from accessing health assistance. Please support the local campaign by sending your members to join in as signatories to this petition. Together, we will deliver the petition to the ministry for their commitment to review some religious doctrines of some local churches,” said Botswana Media and Allied Workers Union (BOMAU) President, Phillimon Mmeso.
