She met her looking depressed in her shop like someone whose husband left her. She asked for a loaf of bread and three eggs but she looked so distracted that she had to repeat her request. Then she sighed and said ‘Hei!!! So this is how fickle a human life is?’ She asked what happened and was told that Mama Ekene their neighbour died in childbirth.
She opened her mouth wide and shouted theatrically ‘Gini?’ When? How?’ And that was she got the full story…… Mama Ekene was pregnant with her third child. Towards the 9th month she was informed of a complication and was advised to go for a caesaraen section. She didn’t believe that a strong christian prayer warrior like her could not deliver vaginally like the Hebrew women as promised by God in the Bible. So she went to her pastor who promised her divine delivery and they commenced special prayers for divine favour. Labour started and she went to the church where she started bleeding but they were promised a miracle so the prayers continued; she finally delivered a live baby but was bleeding profusely and the placenta was stuck plus she was getting so weak.
Then the pastor asked that she be taken to a hospital. She died in traffic en route to a hospital.
“Chineke nna!!” She shouted. “But I thought Mama Ekene was a bit literate, how could she do such a foolish thing? Who risks their life on a Pastor’s prophesy?”
She looked at her sadly, shook her head , sighed deeply and answered “Many do. Have u forgotten the case of Papa Ngozi who lost consciousness and the pastor and his prayer warriors prayed for almost 4 hours before the man was taken to the hospital dead?”
She sighed in a defeat and said “We need to start arresting these men of God. This is murder. Why is no one talking? And they are the first in the hospital when their own family have even simple headache. Hmmmm!! O di egwu. Let me go and prepare breakfast for the kids first.”
