Anglican Church urges people to vote

2014-04-20 16:00
Johannesburg - The Anglican Archbishop called on his congregation to use their right to vote, amid a campaign to spoil ballot papers.

"Too many people have suffered and died for us to stay away from the polls out of apathy," said an excerpt from Archbishop Thabo Makgoba's Easter sermon at St George's Cathedral in Cape Town on Sunday.

"... I want to make a call to all Anglicans in our country to exercise their hard-earned privilege and right to vote. After prayerfully reflecting on the party you want to vote for, please go to the polls and vote.

"And vote we must: too many people have suffered and died for us to stay away from the polls out of apathy."

He said there would be "dozens" of parties to choose from and urged people to examine their policies and their behaviour.

"Above all, let us engage with our consciences and be guided by these rather than by fear and blind loyalty when we make our mark on the ballot paper."

Ronnie Kasrils, an ANC anti-apartheid activist and former government minister stirred debate this week when he suggested spoiling ballot papers after voicing concerns over the performance of the ANC.
