The National Council of Churches, NCC, call for a national day of contrition through prayer and fasting is denied by Government.
The NCC wanted a public holiday declared today on Friday, for the country to ask forgiveness for any wrong doing that has brought suffering from the measles epidemic.
The Government decision to reject the request was announced by the NCC Chairman and Rev. Catechist Kasiano Leaupepe and General Secretary Rev. Ma’auga Motu to Newsline Samoa.
