The Zion Christian Church (ZCC) has postponed its annual easter pilgrimage at Moria amid the Coronavirus outbreak in South Africa.

The decision comes after President Cyril Ramaphosa announced that gatherings of more than 100 people are prohibited as a measure to curb the spread of the virus.

The increasing number of people testing positive for Covid-19 has compelled Ramaphosa to declare it a national disaster.

“We are informing you the people and the groups who come to Moria on the weekends via buses, we are asking you to put on hold coming to Moria until further notice,” the Zion Christian Church (ZCC) said the statement issued on Tuesday.

“While the decision was taken on 13 March, the church decided not to go public about it until all its structures were officially informed so that they did not hear about postponement for the first time in the media.

“The structures were subsequently informed at a meeting held at Moria on Saturday. A follow-up meeting is scheduled for this weekend to give members further information about the virus,” says Motolla.

He further adds that the decision was taken in the best interest of the church members. He also says a new date will be communicated with members at the appropriate time.

“Obviously a new date for the Easter pilgrimage will be announced once normality prevails in this country. This is something unknown, something highly dangerous. We don’t want to risk the lives of our people.”

South Africa has so far recorded 62 cases of Covid-19. On Monday, the ANC announced that its leadership will be embarking on a door-to-door campaign to spread the message about Coronavirus.
