he Church leaders of KwaZulu-Natal will lead a silent action- standing in solidarity with all those who have been affected by the xenophobic violence.
As such, church leaders in KZN, are very anxious about the attacks that have taken place in recent months targeting foreign nationals.
The Chairperson of KwaZulu Natal Christian Council (KZNCC), Bishop Nkosinathi Myaka confirms that KZNCC has received numerous reports of loss of incomes and at a large scale physical violence.
“As Christians, we believe that Our Lord is a God of neighbour-love, hospitality, and inclusivity. Therefore it is at such a time where as leaders we show our commitment to this cause of peace between South Africans and foreign nationals”, said Bishop Myaka.
In this action, Church Leaders will lead the process through three parts (1) Silent witness (a silent action bearing witness to the atrocities which have been experienced in recent months), (2) Intercession (where we will be praying for peace, justice and reconciliation), and (3) Statements of solidarity and (4) Declaration (where leaders will speak pastorally to Refugee Leaders and call on South African Leadership for action).
