Diverse People Unite!

By Grant Tungay

Last week in our Bulletin piece, Fr. Anthony Egan spoke of the need to avoid monopolisation of power in politics. Without a good opposition party, there is the risk of ‘complacency, corruption and the attitude that governance is its right’. Diversity of political opinion makes for a strong democracy through accountability, checks and balances and drawing upon the richness of varied approaches to social challenges.

The reoccurrence of brutal xenophobic violence in South Africa is deeply disturbing and shamefully embarrassing for the people of South Africa and betrays the whole African continent.

The savagery demonstrated is nothing but blatant criminal activity.
