Premier Mathabatha revealed in his remarks that the South African Council of Churches prayed for the Limpopo province, and through those prayers, Limpopo has become a disclaimer of opinion-free province with good governance.

Therefore, with prayer, we will become a successful and just country post 29 May 2024. “Nothing beats prayer,” expressed Mathabatha. 

“In the same spirit of celebrating 30 years of Freedom and Democracy, citizens hope to live in a country that is safe, free from acts of violence, crime, and injustice.

“South Africa deserves to have a more reformed political culture that will cater to the needs of ordinary people of this nation. So, with these prayers, the masses have the assurance of things hoped for, that the country will change for the better post elections,” he said.
