GREYTOWN’S Angus Buchan was presented with the prestigious Men of the Year Legend award by the Gauteng Provincial Government at a ceremony held at Carnival City in Johannesburg last week.

The award is presented to men who have contributed to their communities, and coincides with international Men’s Day and the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children campaign

Internationally famous, Angus attended the black tie affair in his trademark black cowboy hat and jeans.

He believes he was honoured with this award because of his Mighty Men ministry.

“We lack fathers in this nation - any man can make a child, but that doesn’t make them a father.

“To be a father takes commitment 24/7.

“We need to teach our men to be breadwinners, and both the protectors and directors of their families.

“They need to take a responsible role in the home.”

He said a generation of fatherless men could pose the biggest challenge to the future of South Africa.

This is the second award received recently by the founder of the Mighty Men ministry which impacted on thousands and thousands of men throughout the country and further afield.

On October 21 he received a certificate of appreciation from the Growing up without a father Foundation which works to restore hope and dignity to fatherless children.

These awards follow an
invitation from Parliament
to Angus to take part in a
three-hour prayer meeting, attended by Christian leaders and MPs at Parliament in Cape Town. “I was given 20 minutes to bring a message of hope.

“It was like being in a church service.

“People were laughing,
crying and leaving the place rejoicing.

“It was amazing,” said Angus.
