The Natal Witness – 25th August 2008
CONGREGANTS of Pietermaritzburg’s NCF church and family of ANC president Jacob Zuma packed the church yesterday to listen to a “Willing to die for Zuma” sermon.
Zuma was due to attend the sermon, but cancelled because of other commitments.
The sermon focused on the “willingness of Jesus Christ to die for everyone”.
Pastor Grant Crawford told the congregants: “Although the church does not have any political affiliations and neither does it make political statements, we were intrigued by the interest of the ANC in the matter, as it is rare that anybody would be prepared to die for a righteous man.”
ANC Youth League president Julius Malema recently stated that the youth are prepared to die and kill for Zuma.
