Johannesburg - The SA Council of Churches in Gauteng on Monday expressed "outrage" over a school principal's calling provincial Education MEC Barbara Creecy a "Satanist".

SA Democratic Teachers' Union chairperson in Gauteng Moss Senye reportedly called Creecy a "Satanist" and urged members not to align themselves with white people as "they will satanise you".

"The SACC views these utterances very seriously as they are not in line with the vision of this country," SACC Gauteng secretary Reverend Gift Moerane said in a statement.

He said attempts were made to meet Sadtu's leadership in the province over the comments, but these were unsuccessful. The council would therefore take up the matter with churches in and around Soweto.

"We are concerned about the negative impact of conduct that undermines the gains of our hard earned democracy by leaders who use irresponsible language. Leaders should carry out their roles in a moral way, in a manner that affirms the dignity of others."

The ANC in Gauteng and Sadtu's national leadership distanced themselves from Senye's comments.

Senye appeared in court on Monday - with a large contingent of supporters - for allegedly assaulting a pupil. The case was postponed to May 11.
