East London- A day dabbed as a day for a fun walk and family day, the 19th of October 2019 saw a mass crowd wearing baby blue t-shirts take to the streets of East London in a plight to denounce child and women abuse and black on black violence in South Africa.
The walk organized by the DR S.B Radebe Foundation is an annual event that brings together Amasosha to participate in the health walk. The walk is aimed at promoting a healthy lifestyle, however this year the scope was slightly different following the national breaking news of black on black violence and the
unwarranted killings of children and women, the foundation and Amasosha saw it fit to stand up and condemn these cruel acts.
The walk which was estimated to be 13 km commenced from the Bush Buck Stadium at 06:30am and concluded at the Buffalo Park Cricket Stadium where the festivities of the day began.
Amongst those who were in attendance was Pastor Nozewu, renowned radio voice jocky on Umhlobo Wenene who was the MC for the day. Prince Mzinto Makhawula, the family of the great Prophet, Prophet Makhana Nxele, the family of Prophetess Mamtigreat, Chief Ray of the Khoi Khoi of Buffalo city, Mrs kethine
from Buffalo Municipality, Prince Mageba of Amabhaca , Chief Makinana of Mandlambe, Prince Dlamahlahla Dabula and Chief Mtwa of Maxesibe amongst other.
Ms Ntshona a Dietician from Frere Hospital gave a brief but useful talk on a healthy lifestyle “what you eat must concur with your physical exercise, meaning if you eat a lot you must exercise a lot too.” Ntshona stressed the importance of a nutritional and balanced diet.
The absence of the Leader and founder of the Foundation Dr Uzwileze Radebe almost damped the spirits of those who participated in the walk. However, the Prophet extended his heartfelt apology through a massage that was reverted by The Revelation Church of God President Bhekinhlanhla Sibisi
“I recently travelled back from America, I spent 21 hours in the air, I am truly sorry that I could not participate in this year’s walk,” The massage further read that one cannot have a healthy spirit if they continue to feed their spirit with the wrong things.
The nation of Amasosha carries a powerful message because they speak about Africanism and the restoration of Africa.
The Dr S.B Radebe Foundation awarded Amatinda Isibindi Home, a youth center that houses children who have no home and who are struggling with substance abuse with a cheque of R10.000.00.
