Zuma to attend Catholic pilgrimage

2012-08-18 12:07

Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma will attend the Roman Catholic Church's annual pilgrimage to Kevelaer, in Donnybrook, KwaZulu-Natal on Saturday, the presidency said.

"Hosted by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Mariannhill, the annual pilgrimage seeks to highlight and strengthen the role played by the church in the society and also to pray for the needs of the communities," it said in a statement.

Zuma was expected to address the service.

He left a Southern African Development Community summit in Mozambique on Friday to visit the Lonmin Marikana mine in the North West where 34 mineworkers were killed during a shoot-out with police.

      Remember that Zuma is the Chameleon. He perpetually changes his hat. It's just another political expediency excercise.

      zaatheist: I don't judge you. We have a constitution that protects your right to not believe in God and to express that. Kudus to you for exercising that right. The thing about atheists is that they don't exist without God, if there were no God they wouldn't have reason to be atheist. Lol! Otherwise what you going on about?

      Squelch the bathroom mop pusher Wow you are such a clever fellow calling everyone who contradicts your creepy infantile world view a troll. Come on, you are always posting troll accusations, deleting them when challenged and running away. A coward of note.

      Thanduxolo, I think therefore I am therefore I don't need a God to exist, I the same way that the planets, stars and galaxies exist without knowing that there is a God. When it comes down to it everything, including humans, are made from the same thing, energy (i.e. light) and in varying forms and

      densities or complexities of this energy.

    Hedging his bets? If the ANC card won't get him into heaven then he expects that supporting a Catholic pilgrimage may do the trick. If Zuma does attend then that will shut up the critics of the Public Protector who attended a DA sponsored meeting. Tit for tat?

    This guy will do anything to be accepted. What about the Scientologists next? Perhaps the Mormons also, I believe that some of their sects also practice Polygamy?

    Manipulator and manipulatee - Zuma should be banned if the Catholic Church has any integrity, which, of course in alignment with other churches, it does not. It is time religion was banned in politics as its history is one of bloody hands

    Someone should tell JZ that the Catholic Church, unlike the Full Gospel Church, doesn't permit married priests. Nope not even if you only have 1 wife. The "go forth and multiply" part and refusing to wear a condom they'd probably endorse. But sorry for you, being divorced, means you don't stand a snowball's.

    Megalomaniac spearshower will unzip a R52Bill cathedral at Nkandla next. What a pundzi con he is, through & through. AT least the taint of zuma on the Catholic church will absolve the entire church AND it's following from all wrong doings for perpetuity worldwide
