Premier Helen Zille's Message for Ramadan
On behalf of the Western Cape Government, I would like to wish all Muslim residents of the province and their families a blessed Ramadan.
This is a time to strengthen the bonds of community and family, and to nurture faith to walk the path of peace, moral strength and enlightenment. Fasting during the month of Ramadan fosters empathy for those in need and promotes spiritual growth through sacrifice and discipline. This is an example from which South Africans of all faiths and cultures can draw inspiration as part of our shared national heritage.
May your faith be reaffirmed during this time, and may the Almighty grant wisdom and hope to you, your families and the ummah as a whole.
I wish you all Ramadan Mubarak.
Premier Helen Zille.
