DURBAN – PRAYERS from the KwaZulu-Natal province will cure our social ailments, according to the provincial health mecb, according to Sibongiseni Dhlomo.
Dignitaries, including Dhlomo, along with Zodwa Mchunu, the wife of KZN Premier Willies Mchunu, and Zulu Princess Thembi Ndlovu were among believers of various religions who participated on Thursday in a mass prayer in Madadeni in Newcastle.
The prayer session took place in the Enyonini mission, in Madadeni Section 2, in Newcastle.
For Dhlomo, the prayer session was also a celebration of the sincere ANC Albertina Sisulu.
"Here we gathered together with women from all over the province, from different churches and religious houses, to say that women must rise and lead, we say they must be leaders of society, against the abuse of women, the rape of our children, against the killing of people living with albinism, against hijacking and against political murders, we have had these prayers and hope that people listened to God's message, "said Dhlomo.
He added: "We are here to say, let us give ourselves a chance to listen to God who speaks to us, we must not point our fingers, but rather say:" We have been given the opportunity to do things where things have not gone well. & # 39; "
Mchunu, who is usually called the First Lady of the province, called upon women to return to prayer.
She said, "We as women must return to our rightful place as intercessors and women of prayer." In the past, women knew how to pray, but today we have departed from them. "In the past, women's prayer was so powerful that it could be wars and that sinners such as drug dealers could abandon their ways and surrender themselves to the police, and we have to come back to that.
