Christians, public hold prayer for Cabinet
MANZINI — Christians and civil society members yesterday prayed for Cabinet to change its mind over the impasse with teachers.
The prayer which was convened by the Council of Swaziland Churches (CSC) was held at St Paul’s Methodist Church in Manzini.
It was attended by almost 100 people.
This follows government’s decision to sack teachers who engaged in the indefinite strike action over the 4.5 per cent salary adjustment.
President of the proscribed Peoples United Democratic Movement (PUDEMO), Mario Masuku, led those present in prayer for the country’s leadership and the entire Swazi nation.
"Our Cabinet is inconsiderate and stubborn. We pray that God gives us a leadership that will have the interest of the masses at heart," he prayed.
Masuku prayed that God should make Swaziland his priority and save the nation. "You saved Joseph when he was sold by his brothers. Transform our leaders’ hearts such that they may know they are not leading themselves, but the masses," he prayed fervently.
He prayed that the expulsion of teachers be reversed.
