The leader of Africa’s biggest church has told South Africans not to be lured by political rhetoric and empty promises as politicians canvass for votes ahead of next year’s general elections.
Bishop Barnabas Lekganyane of the Zion Christian Church joined religious leaders for the National day of Prayer meeting at FNB Stadium.
Bishop Lekganyane made it clear, that his church will not prescribe to its members which political party they should vote for, but, he said voters should apply their mind properly.
He said they mustn’t allow politicians to blackmail them into voting for them, instead he said people must vote for honest politicians who honour their promises.
South Africans will go to the polls next year to elect new leaders.
