The Chairperson of the Moral Regeneration Movement, Father Smangaliso Mkhatshwa, says he is encouraged by the way civil society is regaining its responsibility to hold the country’s leaders accountable.
His statement comes after Friday’s Constitutional Court judgment.
According to the judgment, the National Assembly has failed to hold President Jacob Zuma accountable following the court’s previous ruling on Nkandla. That ruling found that Zuma had failed to uphold, defend and respect the Constitution.
Father Mkhatshwa says people must speak out when they see something wrong.
He says, “Organs of civil society are speaking up, marching, which therefore means that they are making their voices heard and those in authority must listen to them. We have my good comrades who are veterans and stalwarts of the ANC movement, also saying not only are we concerned about the good of the ANC, our organisation, but the future of this great country that we all love.”
