Opinion: Bishop Lekganyane is right

Zion Christian Church‚ Bishop Barnabas Lekganyane delivered his annual Easter sermon at Moria near Limpopo on Sunday.

Speaking on the current political climate and factions within the ruling party, Lekganyane said: “Leaders of political movements are highly divided. They are so unpredictable One day they agree‚ the next day they are sworn enemies. You never get to know where exactly to place them….they are like robots. Sometimes they are green‚ sometimes they are red.”

Radio 702's Stephen Grootes (standing in for Xolani Gwala) agrees with the bishop.

The Bishop is absolutely right if you think about it, look at what we have at the moment.

Stephen Grootes, 702 anchor

We have President Jacob Zuma claiming he supports radical economic change. Mr President you have been president since 2009, the first time I heard you talking about that was earlier this year.

Stephen Grootes, 702 anchor

Then we have Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma… she has been a minister in three different departments, she was a cabinet minister for nearly 15 years, now suddenly she is talking about land and radical economic change….ma’am in the early 2000’s where were you?

Stephen Grootes, 702 anchor

Then we have the EFF and the DA saying ANC MPs must vote with their conscious in the national interest, well that’s not in their rules.

We deserve better.
