In March 2021, a statement of support on behalf of thousands of South Africans was handed over to the office of the Chief Justice, Mogoeng Mogoeng. The statement includes the hundreds of supportive messages and prayers that emerged from a petition to the President of South Africa, presently signed by 122 thousand people.
ICEJ Director, Vivienne Myburgh, handing over messages of support and updates on the petition to Allister Slingers of the Office of the Chief Justice, seen with Pastor Tom Mofokeng of Bridges for Peace and Bafana Modise of SAFI at the Constitutional Court.
Now, a year later, International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ) South Africa national director Vivienne Myburgh handed over a collection of personal messages of support from SA Christians to former chief justice Mogoeng Mogoeng at his home in Mafikeng.
Vivienne shared with JOY News, “We (ICEJ, SAFI and Bridges for Peace representatives) handed over a petition with over 150 000 signatures to the President’s office at the Parliamentary buildings in Cape Town at the time of the deliberations around the appeal he launched against the judgement made against him by the Judicial Conduct Committee earlier. A judgement that requested that he apologises for supporting Israel and praying for peace between Israel and the Palestinians!”
Earlier this year a campaign for messages of support for Mogoeng was launched and received a great response, with around 200 personal messages of support being received.
“We were blessed to be able to visit with the former Chief justice Mogoeng Mogoeng and his wife, Annah at their home in Mafikeng on Sunday April 10th and hand over the file of messages to him in person.
“He has been in a period of rest and expressed his great appreciation for all the prayers and messages received during the past months.”
