A church in Mahikeng, North West has held a special prayer session for the May 8 poll. The event however was only attended by three political parties and Electoral Commission of South Africa ( IEC) representatives. They gathered in prayer for peaceful elections, a significant day in any democratic country.
“I hope all of us know what normally happens in Africa around elections, before elections, during elections and after elections. So by this, we are involving and engaging the highest power to intervene and assist us in our quest to find a government suitable to take this nation forward,” says Bethesda Kingdom Ministries Pastor, Piet Tlhabanyane.
The prayer was shared by all.
“It is paramount for us as COPE to attend this service to ask for tolerance, to ask for peace and to ask for a government that will listen to people and deliver good service,”says North West COPE Secretary, Rammupudu Mooketsi.
With just more than four weeks to go, the message is clear. South Africans want change and they want service delivery.
