Easter Message from the Premier of Limpopo, Mr. Chupu Mathabatha
The Easter season is upon us!
As the Premier of our beautiful and peaceful Province of Limpopo, I wish to take this opportunity to extend my warmest Easter greetings to all the residents of Limpopo.
I also extend warmest Easter greetings to all those who will be visiting our Province during this special long-weekend of worship, prayer and reunions. We are delighted that you have chosen our Province as your destination of choice for this year’s festivities.
For our Christian community, the Easter weekend is an important festival in the lives of our Christian community which celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ, Easter, therefore signifies hope, renewal and eternity.
During this period, our province receives millions worshippers from across the country, the region and beyond.
It is for this reason that we feel honoured that Limpopo is such a renowned destination for praise and worship.
As a Provincial Government, we call on the people of the province to use this time of spiritual upliftment to recommit themselves to the principles of love, peace, and justice.
This is the time to re-ignite the spark of the spirit of common brotherhood. We should always remember that one does not need to be rich in order to show generosity and compassion. We should indeed be guided by the judicious words of from the Book of Proverbs 3 verse 28 which say to us that we should never say to our neighbours or brothers that “Come back tomorrow and I'll give it to you-- when you already have it with you”.
Let us pray for peace, harmony, unity and prosperity in our Province. Let us pray for an end to diseases, poverty and unemployment.
To ensure safety for everyone, particularly on our roads, we reiterate our call to all road users to observe the rules of the road, these includes, observing a safe following distance, being patient, observing speed limit and not driving under the influence of alcohol.
Lastly, I wish to take this opportunity to implore on all of you to join us in praying for peaceful and incident free elections on the 08th May 2019.
Once again, we say, don’t drink and drive, buckle up and arrive alive!
I thank you!
