- Church attendance has seen a sharp decline even though the government recently allowed churches to open with restrictions
Kabelo Mabalane recently shed the spotlight on how churches are doing during level three of lockdown. The kwaito star-turned-pastor spoke up after a fan questioned the relevance of churches once the coronavirus pandemic is over.
The tweep had asked, “Since lockdown, Are we doing fine without church? Will church still be relevant once life goes back to normal? Can society function without it. Are we good without church?"
Kabelo responded, “Hola! Church doors and physical building is closed, but make no mistake and assume that the church’s function has gone on holiday. It’s business as usual, full steam ahead. Needs are being met, the Gospel is (being) preached and people are being ministered to.“
Kabelo also pointed out that churches do not need fancy high-tech equipment to operate.
Kabelo said, "You don’t need hi tech equipment to be the church.”
Earlier this week, Briefly.co.za reported that Kabelo and his wife, Gail, had both contracted and then recovered from Covid-19. The couple expressed that they had to use their mental health and spirituality in order to beat the coronavirus.
Kabelo and Gail emphasised the realness of the virus and said they are grateful that the worst is over.
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa took to social media with an emotional post that had her and DJ Black Coffee trending on social media. It appears that Enhle is not coping well with her separation from Black Coffee.
Going through a divorce is never easy, especially when there are children involved. Enhle has been going through the most and she took to social media to let it all out.
The star explained how the past three years have broken her and that she has still not managed to recover fully.
