Bishop Bheki Ngcobo adamant his church will not close despite COVID-19 pandemic
The number of confirmed coronavirus cases has increased to 202, Minister of Health Zweli Mkhize announced on Friday.
With the rise of confirmed cases, President Cyril Ramaphosa on Sunday announced that gatherings of more than 100 people are prohibited.
While the announcement hampers church gatherings across the country.
But the South African Zionist Church says it will go ahead with its Easter celebrations despite the government encouraging social distancing as a way of flattening the curve.
Clement Manyathela chats to Inkanyezi Church of Christ bishop Bheki Ngcobo to give more insight on the matter.
We feel that God is needed in our country right now, this is how the church should rise in this situation. Our God is a God of situations. I don't feel that we should be dictated as to how we should pray for our country.Bheki Ngcobo, Bishop - Inkanyezi Church of Christ
He says companies are using precautionary measures and he doesn't see why churches can't do the same.
Closing the church is not the solution, we need to be praying in these difficult times.Bheki Ngcobo, Bishop - Inkanyezi Church of Christ
