Oh, what a tangled web

Well, the controversy doesn’t let up for Rhema after its decision to allow Jacob Zuma to address the congregation from the pulpit a few Sunday mornings back. Predictably, other parties have requested the opportunity to do the same and they have been turned down.


As reported by iafrica news and other sources, a request by Bantu Holomisa of the United Democratic Movement to address the congregation was turned down, as was a request by Kenneth Meshoe of the African Christian Democratic Party. The areligious ANC can speak but an avowedly Christian party cannot? This in spite of an apparent undertaking from Ray Macauley on Radio 702 that all parties would be afforded an equal opportunity.

One hopes that it is merely a case of Rhema realising that it made a mistake the first time round and not wanting to make matters worse by continuing down the path, but they should at least then have the courage to admit having done the wrong thing initially. To do otherwise simply plays into the hands of those contending that it is just cosying up to the ruling party and its likely leader – and that’s a disturbing inference indeed.

    Absolutely right. What a victory if there is a repentant explanation
