Following the events of last week, the South African Council of Churches (SACC) has requested an urgent meeting with Jacob Zuma, Cyril Ramaphosa, Gwede Mantashe, Baleka Mbete, Zweli Mkhize and Jessie Duarte (ANC Top Six).
Recently, some church leaders have expressed the opinion that President Zuma should be recalled by the ANC and requested the SACC to make this call. However the SACC has not acted on these numerous requests – preferring to engage with the ANC on long-term solutions to this and other national crises.
None-the-less, the SACC is not prepared to accept the apology offered by President Zuma to the people of South Africa, for the Nkandla security upgrades, and this is will be tabled before the Top Six.
The ANC has acknowledged the meeting request, and agreed to meet the SACC during this week.
