DURBAN - The SA Zionist Church wants to be compensated for revenue lost due to the COVID-19 lockdown.
Level 3 regulations: Ramaphosa lifts ban on religious gatherings
"It is the first time, for us, as churches to be called essential by government. All the essential services were part of the compensation.
"As a church, we've lost a lot. Buildings are closed, the church cars are also in arrears all these things now need to be paid. You can't ignore your payment."
Ngcobo has also asked that churches that can accommodate larger volumes of people while social distancing be allowed to do so.
