North West Premier Professor Tebogo Job Mokgoro is expected to deliver an address at a district prayer session in Mmabatho on Thursday.
The Premier will address the first of four district prayer services across the province’s four districts.
“This in an effort to galvanise a coordinated community campaign aimed at uniting all sectors and stabilising the province, following the recent spate of violent protest action that engulfed the province,” said the Office of the Premier on Tuesday.
The first district prayer service will be held at the Mmabatho Convention Centre.
The prayer services are a result of a partnership between the provincial government and the Moral Regeneration Movement and different churches across the province.
During these prayer services, churches will pray for peace and unity, for the leadership at all levels of society especially those in authority, for political parties and peaceful and democratic general elections in 2019.
“Moreover, the stakeholders will through these prayer services mobilise for anti-xenophobic practices against foreign nationals, seek spiritual intervention and discourage all forms of murder, political intolerance, damage to property, vandalism, women and children abuse and build a moral and sound community grounded on good Ubuntu values.”
The service is scheduled to get underway at 9am.
Meanwhile, the Premier is also expected to visit the Bophelong Special School where he will engage the management of the school and spend time with orphans and vulnerable children at Mosianeview – Majemantsho.
He is also scheduled to visit the Life Line to engage the management of the centre and get first-hand testimonials from victims about the assistance of the centre after which he will make a stop at the Mahikeng Long Distance Taxi Rank to meet and greet members of the taxi associations. – SAnews.gov.za
