According to Western Cape SACC chairperson, Lionel Louw, the voice of the church deserves to be heard because the church’s heritage is of integrity and not of corruption.

“No, we’ve had corruption with us for a number of years and during this covid period, in particular, we are seeing the heightening of that corruption at a time when people were ill and some people were dying.”

Reverend Martin Abrahams from the Moravian Church wants government to know the church has had enough.

“It is the fact that the poor are becoming poorer, it is the fact that many of our people who are in the churches have very little hope for the future and that is our concern.”
