DA’s message related to xenophobic attacks in South Africa

The District Apostle of the South East Africa region, Patrick Mkhwanazi deems the xenophobic attacks on foreign nationals in South Africa as very serious. He has subsequently cancelled services and all other activities in congregations in the severely affected areas which are:

  • Diepsloot
  • Johannesburg Central
  • Kromdraai
  • Olievenhoutbosch
  • Zandspruit

The District Apostle does not want to create unnecessary alarm but has advised to assess the matter with caution and continuous monitoring, so that further action can be taken if necessary. “A further decision regarding this matter will be made by Sunday, 26 April,  where an announcement will be made in the congregations affected whether there will be a service the following Wednesday or not.”

Church leaders have asked that we pray for those affected and for the xenophobic attacks to end.
