"I forgot how long the Good Friday service at church is. Over 5 hrs‚" wrote Zoleka.

She said she and her gran had left the service hungry.

"My Day One and I left the service so hungry‚ we had to stop and buy roasted corn on the side of the road to eat en route to the house ... 😂 Time for our family lunch aka CHEAT DAY MEAL‚" she wrote.
