PASTOR Aubrey Des-Bordes Mends launched his first book - How to Deal with Anger - at Harding Oxford International School on Saturday. The launch was attended by a number of dignitaries including Oxford International’s CEO Ernest Agyemang- Duah, Harding mayor Dicksy Nciki and international Apostle Victor Glen Smith. The speakers touched on concurring issues in the area including the current service delivery protests, xenophobia and the recent killing of police officers, linking all these to the importance of anger management discussed in the book. Nciki said she was puzzled about what Harding people are angry about. “I see a lot of people are angry in this town, but seemingly they won’t say exactly what it is they are angry about. I was also asking at the deceased colonel’s funeral earlier today - where are these monsters now, are they happy?” She said Harding was proud of Mends literary contribution as well as Agyemang-Duah’s contribution to the town’s economy. Providing spiritual upliftment to guests was Apostle Victor Smith who spoke about how adversity was a sign of Godly favour and apologised to the Church of Africa for South Africa’s recent xenophobia incidents. “On behalf of the pastors of South Africa I would like to apologise to the Church of Africa today saying to the church ‘we are Africa and we are one people’.” An auction was held to sell the first copies of the book and the first one was sold to Agyemang- Duah for R2 500. Mends said he was thankful about the success of the launch. The book he said, explores religious, philosophical and psychological perspectives in understanding anger and dealing with it. He said that although it would not be available at bookstores immediately, he was available for bookings and seminars on it where it will be sold
