When it seems like it’ll all fall down; Pray to God.
President Zuma Lead the National Prayer Day which had being postponed in April and was to be held on May 22. The original date was probably postponed because the event was high-jacked by the ANC, as on the advertisement banner which was hanged on the Ridge’s bridge in Durban which had writings that said: ‘Prayer for local government elections and National Prayer day is hosted by the ANC…’, and not specifically a National prayer day with it embedded key elements.
The ANC’s facing many of its greatest trials, from the Nkandla scandal to the Guptas’ connections, and from corrupt officials (ANC’s MP(s) whit fake qualifications) to members’ withdrawal from the party, who went to the emerging DA and to the rebellious EFF. Above all, the ANC need prayers; there’s a dark cloud over the party.
Low numbers of registered voters may cost the ANC come this local election.
After all, South Africa’s a 99% Christian nation, and so is the ANC. Surely the prayers which were to take place in April were to sustain the party’s current members’ loyalty, and to break the curse and the dark shadow that the party’s experiencing at the moment.
President J.Gedleyihlekisa Zuma has being receiving private prayers from religious leaders and probably the party has being receiving them too, Nevertheless; hopefully God will answer prayers from the ‘prodigal’ ANC leadership and he will restores the dignity that the party had being possessing from it early inceptions days and from its Iconic pioneers. If not; then the ANC will lose its strength in numbers to the DA who have couple of members with double standards, and to the notorious EFF.
Every great leader, every great empire or institution faces unforeseen challenges from time to time; so is the ANC. On the other side, if the DA had to win many municipalities in the local elections in ANC’s territories, the country would not be at peace, it would probably turn upside down.
ANC leaders are aware of the corruptions in the party, Mr Blade Nzimande had once stated regarding corruptions in the party: “The ANC’s like a room with mosquitoes; when you open the window, you’ll begin to chase away mosquitoes one by one.” Foremost, in not trying to justify the president’s involvement in the Nkandla Scandal, with regards to the Public Protector’s report, it states that other parties were involved in the overall corruption procedures, from the architect who had advanced certain projects without the president’s approval, to contractors who escalated costs, and to Zuma’s family members who had their hands in the multimillionRandsCokieJar.
It’s crucial that the legendary ANC restores it potent legacy, it’s for the inner best interest of all South Africans and for the African continent.
