Church group to defy vaccination regulations over Easter weekend

Members of the International Federation of Christian Churches will not adhere to the required proof of vaccination regulations over the Easter weekend.

EWN reports that spokesperson Bishop Mosa Sono has expressed disappointment over government’s handling of religious gatherings regarding COVID-19. “Unfortunately, we find ourselves in this position and we just have to speak like Peter and say ‘well, we will obey God and not men’. And it’s an unfortunate place to come to because that’s never our first approach. Our approach is always to talk but that doesn’t mean we are not going to continue talking with the government,” he said.

President Cyril Ramaphosa announced last month that indoor gatherings can only host up to 1,000 people without proof of vaccination documents.
