JOHANNESBURG – Anglican Archbishop Thabo Makgoba has urged all ANC delegates around the country to put their factional battles aside when they elect a new leader in the upcoming congress.
The congress, slated from the 16th to the 20th on December, will see ANC delegates from all the nine provinces of the country gathered in Gauteng as they elect the best candidate to represent the party in the next presidential elections.
Makgoba has encouraged all delegates to choose a moral and ethical leader and also someone who will dedicate his time in improving sustainable socio-economic development of the country, for the benefit of all South Africans.
The charismatic archbishop claims he has been praying for a moral and ethical leader for nearly a decade now and hopes his prayers will be answered in the upcoming congress.
Makgoba said it’s time for ANC delegates to put aside factional battles and choose the right person to shape the destiny of the country.
Political analysts also share same sentiments that for the country to progress in its socio-economic endeavours, ANC delegates should put South Africans first and prioritise the country’s needs.
Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa heads to the ANC’s 54th national congress on the front line followed by Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma amongst other presidential hopefuls.
