How quickly people forget that the same man who stood in the Ellis Park Stadium earlier today asking for Christians’ to help in the fight against Satan is also the same man who, back in 2011 had this to say about the religion:“Those were times that the religious people refer to as dark days but we know that, during those times, there were no orphans or old-age homes. Christianity has brought along these things.”
Today, however, the president sang a very different tune that went far in wooing South Africa’s largest voter base.
“We are here to get blessings and prayers. We want you to pray for us as leaders so that when we make mistakes, you can ask God to forgive us because Satan is always around trying to derail us,” he said.
Zuma, accompanied by (lack of)water and sanitation minister Nomvula Mokonyane, marched to the tune of “Yinde le ndlela” (The Road is Still Long) while the crowd sang along.
“We need love,” he told the crowd.
“We must love God and those who have been entrusted to do his work. On this day, when we remember Jesus, we also ask those in charge to pray for us,” the pressie said in Zulu.
