SACC: Inequality Worse than at End of Apartheid

The SACC plans to tackle the challenges and imbalances in the country through a campaign called ‘The South Africa We Pray For’

The South African Council of Churches (SACC) says it plans to tackle the challenges and imbalances in the country through a campaign called ‘The South Africa We Pray For’‚ stating that research it commissioned shows that inequality today is far greater than it was at the end of apartheid.

The organisations says that this prayer and action campaign‚ to be launched at a special Reconciliation Day service on 16 December 2015‚ will see the church taking an active role in addressing the societal imbalances currently experienced in a post-apartheid South Africa.

The general secretary of the SACC‚ Bishop Malusi Mpumlwana‚ says that, “The Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) came and went‚ yet we remain a polarised nation - spatially‚ socially‚ economically‚ and politically.”
