Western Cape church leaders have gathered outside the Western Cape legislature to protest against corruption as part of a nation-wide campaign organized by the South African Council of Churches (SACC).
Archbishop Thabo Makgoba is leading the clergy in the Western Cape in the silent protest against corruption linked to Covid-19.
As the nation celebrates heritage month, church leaders said that it is time for South Africans to accept that corruption was not part of our heritage.
Western Cape SACC chairperson Lionel Louw said the church has a part to play in highlighting the effects of corruption on people on the grassroots level.
“That is where we are directly exposed to the extent of the human need that is not being addressed because of the resources that should have gone into delivering services don’t always materialize,” he said.
