STEPS TO BRING ABOUT A MORAL REGENERATION
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.
