Mayor of the Collins Chabane Municipality in Limpopo, Shadrack Maluleke led the Inter-faith Mass Prayer Day against all social ills. The prayer session was held at the municipality Hall in Malamulele on Thursday.
The Inter-faith Mass Prayer Day is aimed at seeking divine intervention against the increasing number of car accidents, premature death, crime and all social ills currently facing the people of Collins Chabane.
Religious leaders from various faith organizations led people in prayer and gave words of encouragement and support.
According to Collins Chabane Municipality Mayor Gezane Shadrack Maluleke, the Inter-faith Mass Prayer Day was organised to pray in mass seeking divine intervention.
“In our roads, we have always had public transportation virtually denoting horror. Our private transport, in particular public transport, has painted gory pictures of minibus crashes. Bodies of our loved ones scattered on our roads. We have seen criminal activities in broad daylight and also assassinations under the cover of darkness. When we have prayers for peace such as this one here today, it is also important that we pledge ourselves to end road carnage on our roads,” said Maluleke.
He also appeals to the community leaders to apply their minds. As to how best they can contribute to road safety campaigns.
“We must as well pray for political tolerance, repentance, and love, restoration of ubuntu. Peaceful coexistence amongst citizens,” he said.
