According to the church’s history, their leader, Shembe, had a vision at Intabazwe mountain now called Platberg. The place is considered holy hence it attracts a lot of attention from the pilgrims.⁦

Traffic is flowing freely on the N3 at this stage, but if you are travelling on the N3 tomorrow (September 8), please bear in mind that there might be congestion due to home-bound travellers after the prayer meeting.

SA Trucker will keep you updated on this situation.
