Congregants from the End Times Global Ministers Network in Gugulethu held a special prayer against the country’s social ills. The prayer was at Ikhwezi Community Centre on Monday. Apostle Mzwandile Dube described the service as a prayer of repentance. He said a lot of things that happened under apartheid happened in a democratic South Africa. He said they wanted to change that. “History is repeating itself,” he said. “We want to close that chapter and start a new life where people can stay together in peace and harmony.” Dube urged people and the nation to accept their sins and for God to have mercy on them. “This is a cleansing service because our communities are dominated by the criminals and are becoming war zones. People are necklaced, raped and robbed. Pupils are unruly at school and our economy is collapsing. So we need God’s intervention,” Dube said.Congregant Chidi Nwachukwu Samuel described the African continent as chaotic and called for unity.“We need unity, cooperation and love for one another. Our nations seem to fall by the wayside because they are infested with drugs, crime and corruption,” he said.
