Former President Jacob Zuma was known as the president who had a voice with his famous ‘Umshini wam’ song. Well, it seems as if the current President Cyril Ramaphosa has now gotten in on the action of being a president that can sing. The South African president has shown his singing talents on Sunday at the Grace Bible Church.
The president guided the church attendants with a song. “If you believe and I believe, and we together pray, the Holy Spirit must come down, and Africa will be saved,” sang President Cyril Ramaphosa. The church’s choir then came on stage to assist the South African president. The president conducted the church alongside the church’s choir conductor. The attendants were happy to have the president being amongst them.
The president came to the church with some of the members of parliament. The church released a statement regarding President Cyril Ramaphosa’s attendance at the church. “In his address to the congregation, President Cyril Ramaphosa expressed his gratitude to the initiative taken by the church in the aftermath of the attacks on foreign owned businesses and on gender-based violence,” reads the Grace Bible Church statement. According to the statement, he was motivated that the church was showing leadership by going to places that were impacted and giving resources along with prayers.
“He lamented the fact that it had elements of tribalism and encouraged the church to continue leading the way. The President urged South Africans to love one another as all people are mad in the image of God. He further stated that lawlessness needs to tackled decisively and emphasised that the country was not xenophobic. The president broke into song at the end of his address and conducted the music group much to the delight of the congregants,” reads the church’s statement.
