KwaZulu Natal Council of Churches (KZNCC) is deeply shocked at receiving news about the murder of people during the barbaric attacks at the Kennedy Road informal settlement in Durban. The attacks on Kennedy Road violate the Kennedy road people’s rights to associate, to move freely and to speak freely.  As Churches in KwaZulu Natal, we are very much concerned about the wanton violation of democratic rights for which our brothers and sisters died.
We call upon the relevant safety and security structures to take swift action in apprehending the perpetrators and bringing them to book.

We call upon religious leaders in KZN to condemn the Kennedy road attacks and visit the affected individuals and communities.

We call upon churches to send messages of support to Abahlali BaseMjondolo, a movement that has been directly affected by these acts of violence.

We call upon religious communities to donate food and clothing for the affected individuals and families who have been displaced by the violence to the following address:

The Cathedral of the Holy Nativity
144 Langalibalele Street
Pietermaritzburg
Phone – 033 – 3941567

Or

In Durban at
29 St Mary’s Avenue, Greyville
