ANC councillor Mandla Msibi to appear in court for allegedly inciting and instigating violence against foreigners

We greet you in wonderful name of our Lord Jesus Christ
The month of May is celebrated in the entire African continent as Africa month. This is a result of the formation of the organisation of African Unity on the 25th May 1963. This organisation was tasked with the responsibility of ensuring that all African countries finally achieve total liberation from colonizers.
At this stage we cannot afford to fold our arms and relax in our laurels when terrorists’ organizations are on a mission to reverse all the gains we have achieved. We cannot allow them to turn our schools into places of violence

We believe that, in obedience to Jesus Christ, its only Head, the Church is called to love the stranger, for we all had been strangers in the land (Deuteronomy 10:18-19) Jesus is Lord.

against all those who selfishly seek their own interests and harm others on ground of their nationality. We have an imperative to serve as the voice of the voiceless. We should speak out, judge righteously, and defend the rights of those whose rights are being inflicted upon (Proverbs 31:8-9).

all to pursue community with one another; to fight against all which may threaten or hinder this common humanity. We should earnestly pursue and sought a common citizenry. To give shelter to the stranger in our midst is ultimately a question of preserving our own human dignity. The dignity of human beings is thus not bound to ethnic, cultural, religious or national identity (Leviticus 23, 22, Deuteronomy 24, 19; 14, 28f; 26, 12; 24, 17f; 10, 18; 24, 14f; Exodus 12, 49;). God cares for everyone and regards each individual human being as infinitely valuable. All human beings are created in the image of a righteous and loving God. We therefore reject xenophobia and afrophobia. We believe that God is in a special way the God of the stranger in our midst and that He calls his Church to follow Him in this; that He protects the stranger and that the Church must therefore stand by the stranger in our midst in any form of suffering (Colossians 3, 11; Ephesians 2, 14; Romans 15, 7; 12, 13). God’s love and compassion includes all humankind. Christ has already conquered separation, enmity and hatred between people and groups (Galatians 3, 27-29). Without embracing the “other” there can be no dignity of all.

In a time like this when foreigners are treated unjustly we believe that the Confession of Belhar article 4 urges us to believe that God has revealed himself as the One who wishes to bring about justice and true peace among men; that in a world full of injustice and enmity He is in a special way the God of the destitute, the poor and the wronged and that He calls his Church to follow Him in this; that He brings justice to the oppressed and gives bread to the hungry; that He frees the prisoner and restores sight to the blind; that He supports the downtrodden, protects the stranger, helps orphans and widows and blocks the path of the ungodly; that for Him pure and undefiled religion is to visit the orphans and the widows in their suffering; that He wishes to teach His people to do what is good and to seek the right; that the Church must therefore stand by people in any form of suffering and need, which implies, among other things, that the Church must witness against and strive against any form of injustice, so that justice may roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream; that the Church as the possession of God must stand where He stands, namely against injustice and with the wronged; that in following Christ the Church must witness against all the powerful and privileged who selfishly seek their own interests and thus control and harm others.
