STEPS TO BRING ABOUT A MORAL RE­GEN­ER­A­TION

The Rep - - FRONT PAGE - ZOLILE MENZELWA

CRU­ELTY, jeal­ousy and bro­ken fam­i­lies were some of the char­ac­ter­is­tics of a coun­try which needed to be re­built on faith and trust.

This was said by Moral Re­gen­er­a­tion Move­ment (MRM) pro­vin­cial chair­man iNkosi Ngan­gomh­laba Matanz­ima at the pro­vin­cial launch in Sada re­cently.

He said ini­ti­ates died as men did not take re­spon­si­bil­ity and play their role as head priests in so­ci­ety and their fam­i­lies.

“The Almighty must live in us so we can clothe the naked, fight for the poor and feed the hun­gry. Men have stopped do­ing that.”

Matanz­ima said peo­ple would not go bank­rupt or be poor by shar­ing with the less for­tu­nate.

“There is cru­elty and jeal­ousy. Churches and po­lit­i­cal par­ties are break­ing up be­cause no one wants to lis­ten.“

There was no sense of dis­ci­pline as chil­dren had no older peo­ple to look up to while par­ents were giv­ing up on chil­dren due to poor be­hav­iour from both sides.

“That is why you have rape, then you call those peo­ple men. There is no man like that. We must stand strong and say the coun­try will not be taken away from us by the devil.”

He said OR Tambo preached unity among Africans de­spite dis­agree­ments. He asked what Chris Hani, who was killed for the unity of Africans and their free­dom, would say about the sta­tus quo.

“There are par­ents who use chil­dren to sell drugs. They kill so­ci­ety by killing the brains of the youth.”

Peo­ple con­stantly told gov­ern­ment they strug­gled, yet they had money for drugs. He said young peo­ple who were mem­bers of gangs had homes, yet their par­ents did not act to stop this scourge.

“We are here to say let us move with this move­ment and preach. Let us say the house is be­ing de­mol­ished and the cen­tre needs to hold. We are lead­ing this mo­ment with ev­ery­one who has a con­science and who says ‘not in our name’,” Matanz­ima said.
