Leaders urged to lead with integrity

(AFP)

Johannesburg - The National Chaplaincy Council of SA on Sunday called for leaders elected in the general elections to respect voters by leading with integrity.

"We wish the majority party (ANC) to lead with humbleness, willingness to borrow everyone an ear as usual and even more," chairman Bantu Xozwa said in a statement. Bantu said voters had trusted political parties with their votes.

"The council further appreciate the work done by the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) during the robust campaigns by the South African Political parties, up to the moment when South Africans cast their last vote," Xozwa said.

He sent condolences to the family of the ANC supporter who was killed on Wednesday at a voting station in KwaDukuza.

African National Congress spokesman Jackson Mthembu said the person was allegedly killed by a member of an opposition party.

"We wish to thank the religious and spiritual community of South Africa for the prayers, and praise to the almighty for peaceful elections," Xozwa said.
