Zuma deserves prayers because he served SA well, says bishop
The National Interfaith Council of South Africa is hosting a welcome home prayer for former president Jacob Zuma in his home town of Nkandla on Thursday.
JOHANNESBURG – The National Interfaith Council of South Africa is hosting a welcome home prayer for former president Jacob Zuma in his home town of Nkandla on Thursday.
The pastors have told Eyewitness News that they want to thank the former president for the role he played in championing radical socio-economic transformation in the country.
The pastors taking in part in today's welcome home prayer for Zuma previously organised an all-night prayer in KwaZulu-Natal last month ahead of the former president’s court appearance.
Bishop Vusi Dube says that Zuma deserves to be welcomed home with prayers because he served the country well.
"He championed the way for the poor, he introduced the ARVs for everybody and he also made sure that the issue of free education is something that is put into action."
Dube explains what they'll be praying for today.
"His welfare and also because he is facing some challenges with the cases that are coming."
The pastors say that all the challenges that Zuma faced over the years were a spiritual attack on him.
