Church leaders want community to know ANC is ‘accessible’

The Brethren Mission Church says it invited Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma to the opening to show the community that ANC leaders don’t rule from behind closed doors.

JOHANNESBURG – The Brethren Mission Church says it has invited Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma to its launch on Saturday to show the community that African National Congress (ANC) leaders are accessible.

The former African Union Commission chairperson is in Thokoza for the ceremony, accompanied by the ANC Women's League President Bathabile Dlamini.

The church's Khwezi Masondo says it wants to show the local community that ANC leaders don’t rule from behind closed doors.

“We want to show them that they are part and parcel of us and they know our problems. We want people to know that, maybe they will understand why it is important to follow politics in the country.”

Dlamini-Zuma and church leaders have officially opened the doors to the church, through the symbolic cutting of a ribbon.

The Brethren Mission Church founder Robert Nkosi is expected to share a brief history of the church before Dlamini-Zuma takes to the stage to give the keynote address.
