Church leaders within the Western Cape got here collectively on Tuesday to launch a peaceable protest towards corruption linked to covid-19.
This protest motion is part of the nationwide marketing campaign organised by the South African Council of Church buildings.
Church leaders throughout numerous denominations gathered outdoors St Georges Cathedral in entrance of the Western Cape legislature.
They have been seen holding placards which learn: ‘we are saying no to corruption’ and ‘COVID-19 corruption destroys life’.
Based on Western Cape SACC chairperson, Lionel Louw, the voice of the church deserves to be heard as a result of the church’s heritage is of integrity and never of corruption.
“No, we’ve had corruption with us for quite a lot of years and through this covid interval, specifically, we’re seeing the heightening of that corruption at a time when individuals have been in poor health and a few individuals have been dying.”
Reverend Martin Abrahams from the Moravian Church desires authorities to know the church has had sufficient.
“It’s the truth that the poor have gotten poorer, it’s the truth that a lot of our people who find themselves within the church buildings have little or no hope for the longer term and that’s our concern.”
