Western Cape church leaders gathered in Cape Town on Tuesday to protest against corruption linked to COVID-19.
Leaders from various denominations stood outside the St Georges Cathedral in front of the Western Cape legislature. It is part of a nation-wide campaign organised by the South African Council of Churches. The leaders representing different churches were holding placards which read: ‘we say no to corruption’ and ‘COVID corruption destroys life’. Western Cape SACC chairperson Lionel Louw said it was important for the church to add its voice and express that our heritage is a heritage of integrity not a heritage of corruption. Reverend Martin Abrahams from the Moravian Church said they want to let government know the church has had enough.
