Sataar Parker, spokesperson for the Gatesville Mosque located in Cape Town has stepped into the future during the lockdown period, they have adapted the way they deliver their prayers by live broadcast for the holy month of Ramadan.
President Ramaphosa has made it clear during the lockdown that religious leaders must comply with the regulations set, this prevents religious members congregating at places of worship and preventing further spread of the virus.
Many of the religions situated in South Africa have evolved around the regulations in place and made alternative methods of prayer accessible.
President Ramaphosa previously visited the Zion City in Moria and educated religious leaders on how to curb the spread of the virus and to send a reminder to prevent mass gatherings.
“We are at the mosque here, making it very clear to everyone that there are absolutely no congregation prayers, but the facilities we have at the mosque we are broadcasting every Friday.” said Sataar Parker
