“Friday sermons are very important and must focus on happenings within the week and advise the youth. From now to the end of March we must focus on preaching against homosexuality. It is against our religion. It can bring about curses to our land. Let us train our children and put the fear of God in them whether Muslims and Christians. We should not allow the peers of our children of our children to lead them astray. We would account for our stewardship someday”, he charged
