CHURCHES COULD SAVE MZANSI
The South African Council of Churches is correct and should play an even bigger role, just as in the past.
Every day, there’s increasing evidence that the state has been captured by a few corrupt elites, including the president.
Father Michael Lapsley recently asked: “How can the CEO of brand South Africa fire his most competent ministers and leave intact at least two incompetent ministers, regardless of the consequences for the nation?”
Churches have a role to play in the country.
Mmusi Maimane, Reverend Frank Chikane, Reverend Kenneth Meshoe and all other political leaders should come together to hold the moral compass.
Sefako Makgatho and Allan Boesak were theologians, and Boesak was a strong critic of Nationalist Party policies.
After all, politicians such as Martin Luther King Jr, Walter Rubusana and Makhenkesi Stofile were also reverends.
