Violent protests have shaken the nation of South Africa for almost three weeks now. The unrest is said to have been caused by the jailing of former president Jacob Zuma for 15 months on contempt of the court. Supporters in his home province of KwaZulu-Natal set up roadblocks on major highways and burned about 20 trucks.
The unrest spread within KwaZulu-Natal, where shopping malls and centers were ransacked by mobs that took food, electronics, clothes and liquor. Attacks on retail centers also spread inland to Gauteng province, to Johannesburg, the country’s largest city, and to Pretoria, the capital. In Durban and Pietermaritzburg, crowds attacked warehouses for major retailers and factories, which were set alight. Several burned until their roofs collapsed. The unrest lasted for a week until 25,000 army troops were deployed.
It is in times like these tat we need to re-examine what may be happening on the spiritual level to understanding what is ahead. Though it may sound presumptuous to many, nothing happens in the real -world without prior set up in the spiritual world. Hence, we can relate more to the words Bishop Innocent Rugagi mentioned 3 months where he foretold events that were bound to shake the world. We can cite the assassination of Haiti’s president as a similar event that has suck an entire nation in turmoil.
This is a time where Christians, all over the world, take on the mantle of intercessors to intercede for the world, the nations and in the present case, the whole of South Africa. It is not only as a Christian prerogative to do so but also as a measure to build up security for the millions of Christians who live in South Africa.
