President Cyril Ramaphosa has called on all South Africans to pray on Thursday evening between 6 PM and 6:30 PM in response to the coronavirus pandemic. This will be six hours before the 21-day nationwide lockdown declared to help curb the spread of the virus. Currently the country has recorded 709 COVID-19 infections and there are fears this could increase. Ramaphosa says this is the moment when South Africans need to act together as one patriotic nation in solidarity with all those affected or impacted by COVID-19, not just in South Africa but around the world. “These are challenging times. We are traversing a path we have never travelled before. There are many amongst us who are fearful, uncertain and vulnerable. I call on our people to offer a prayer and a thought for the protection and healing of our land and its people from this disease,” Ramaphosa says. “Over the past two weeks, South Africans from all walks of life have demonstrated their resilience by complying with the restrictions that have been placed on their lives. Because we are in a state of national lockdown our prayers must be offered from our hearts and in our homes,” he says.

Wealthy South Africans must stand up and be counted in this hour of needOppenheimer and Rupert families set an example with their R2bn donation to pandemic relief Every one must. Ordinary people will run out of money to buy food since they can't go out looking for earnings. We all must help, even by giving your neighbour's in need. I am sure we will see people around us in need, give what you have especially food. Where is Patrice? Has he gone into hiding? I read the first paragraph of this article and and I just saw two names that are topping charts right now. Afrikans with Conglomerates, BEE brothers with multimillion tenders, where are you?

Abramjee Yeah he is right we will pray xijingping to provide us with an antidote or else dipope sal dans

I don’t think he should dictate times to pray. The least he could have done was to just say, let’s pray for corona virus to be eliminated in our country. As for time it’s our choice. BigKid850312 Makasale athandaza yena... Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess😊
