Khayelihle Music and FuneralServices in partnership with KwaZulu-Natal Christian Council (KZNCC) has initiated a Prayer session for a safer Peter Brown off ramp on Pietermaritzburg’s N3.
Clergy from various denominations (promoting ecumenism), representatives from the KZN Department of Transport, Mi7 National group and SANRAL have converged at The All Saints United Church-PMB today to pray that the high number of road accidents on this deadly road may subside.
Mr Muzi Mkhize, the organiser and founder of Khayelihle Funeral Services said seeking divine intervention to stop accidents from happening on the roads was important. “There are things that we as human beings cannot accomplish without the Lord’s intervention. We need assistance from God to achieve our set road safety goals.” He thanked everyone who took part in this initiative.
KZNCC Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Dr Douglas Dziva expressed his heartfelt appreciation to the pastors and congregants from the respective churches, other partners, community members and the All Saints United church for hosting the prayer. He added that “prayer for safety on the road should be accompanied by roadworthy cars, sober drivers, avoiding road rage, avoiding fatigue and vigilant traffic police.”
Dziva urged every road user to be more cautious when using the roads especially in the forthcoming peak festive season.
