ANC deputy president Jacob Zuma received prayers for "his troubles" at Tyrannus Apostolic Church in Qwa-Qwa on Sunday.

Hundreds of Tyrannus congregants and members of the community packed into the grounds of the church.

Zuma knelt in front of the congregation when chief apostle, Tshitso Mokoena, and other pastors laid hands on him to pray for him.

"This is the day that Jesus rose from the dead. It is, therefore, a testimony that he indeed died for all our sins. This is a special Easter because I'm lucky to have visited many African churches like Tyrannus Apostolic Church where I have received blessings. Whenever I visit African churches I feel at home," said Zuma.

He said the ANC was blessed by God and that most of its founding members had been pastors. He said the ANC would lead South Africa for many years to come.

Zuma attacked white Christian churches for oppressing African Christian churches.

He said African churches must fight to be free like the ANC did during apartheid.
