"We went through a lot for the past 2 years. And a crossover in the church is a healing power on its own. #NoCurfewOnNewYearsEve."
"@CyrilRamaphosa stop referring to gatherings, directing it to the church whereas other entities still don't observe curfew but no law is enforced against their actions. We want to start 2022 in the presence of God."
" This year we don't want to hear that churches will be closed, while taverns, clubs will be operating. We want to enter 2022 in the presence of the Lord."
"You know very well that curfew works for Churches the rest of the country will be partying until the morning non will sleep after 00:00. It is only church people who are restricted and oppressed. #NoCurfewOnNewYearsEve."
