- President Cyril Ramaphosa enjoyed Good Friday celebrations while respecting the lockdown rules
- Ramaphosa attended a church service from the comfort of his own home
- The president tuned into a service led by Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town Thabo Makgoba
President Cyril Ramaphosa recently extended the 21-day lockdown by a further two weeks.
Briefly.co.za reported on the special announcement on Wednesday as well as the reaction from the public.
Although South Africans are struggling to adapt to the demands of the lockdown, many will take comfort in the knowledge that Ramaphosa is practising what he preaches.
The first example is when he took decisive action against Minister of Communications and Digital Technologies Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams when she breached lockdown rules to attend a luncheon.
Now, the president has set the tone by attending a church service on Good Friday from his home in Johannesburg.
Ramaphosa tuned into a special service led by Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town Thabo Makgoba.
The Presidency shared the news via Twitter and many South Africans approved.
Sbongasonke (@sbongafuze) said,
"CR17 has proven to the whole world that South African people can rely on him now..well done honourable the President."
Mahlangomuhle (@mahlangomuhle) added,
"We thank the Lord for a President that knows God. Could the President consider a National Prayer Day, for God to heal our land, and to pray for peace, economy, stability and to pray for Essential Services Workers and all those who have been infected and affected."
