The programme will feature a political session, although details are being finalised. 

“The programme is still being worked on and the line up for speakers is still work in progress,” Manyi said. 

The foundation could not confirm whether president Zuma would attend the day of prayer, describing his situation as "fluid". 

“Look as to whether President Zuma is going to be there on that day. Let’s just pray that he is there, but the situation is still fluid because President Zuma is still on medical parole. His condition is a fluid condition. We hope that on that day the doctors will allow him to be there. So we are hoping for the best,” Manyi said.
