PRAYER FOR THE ZULU TRADITIONAL COUNCIL 2016

Youth Empowerment Movement in Christ is a diverse peace movement. It is an organisation of religious young people from uMtunzini – Zulu Traditional Authority Ogagwini under Ward 20. The prayer was held at Obanjeni, Emabhawozini sports ground, Qokololo.

The prayer was introduced in response to criminal activities that faced the Ogagwini rural area, leading to a divided society. Prayer for the Zulu Traditional Council was therefore introduced as an intervention to restore peace and unity, as well as to console families who had lost their loved ones in the killings. To quote Albert Einstein, “peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.” This is the motive behind the initiative.

Prayer for the Zulu traditional authority Ogagwini 2016 was focused on praying for Ogagwini’s Grade 11 and 12 school learners, the upcoming local government elections and also to commemorate the June 16 uprising in 1976. This follows a poor performance trend of Ogagwini Matriculants in previous years. “The matriculation rate is continuously dropping. There has been a year in which only 11 pupils passed, and another year in which there were no matric passes,” commented Xolani Ngema, who spoke on the topic “purpose of the day”.

Qhakaza Innovation – an organisation that assists high school learners with registration processes and selection of careers was present to address schools that were in attendance. His Worship the Mayor of the uMlalazi Municipality also afforded his presence to address the residents of the Zulu Traditional Authority Ogagwini. Mpendulo Thulare (special programmes) touched on the struggle as young people before 1994 and our struggle after 1994. “The youth of today is faced with a different struggle than that of 1976 – so should be the approach,” he explained. Local pastors were present to support the programme and to share their prayers.

The event was organised by Xolani Ngema, Brian Phungula, Siyabonga Ntuli and Dumisani Dludla. They had approached uMlalazi Municipality for assistance in making this a day a success.
