Archbishop Meets SA Deputy President Ramaphosa

Archbishop Thabo Makgoba met South African Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa at Bishopscourt today, where they discussed structured partnerships between Church and State.

Areas covered by such partnerships include the National Development Plan, the South African National AIDS Council (SANAC), youth employment and the promotion of values which give South Africans hope and help them observe best practices.

After the meeting, Archbishop Thabo made a call for special prayer:

"We pray for peace, stability and courage in our country," he said. "We pray for the South African Council of Churches as it meets over the coming days, and for the SACC's 'unburdening panel' which hears the concerns of public servants who want to share details of corruption.

"Abroad we pray for those killed in the weekend's attack in London. In the rest of the Province, we pray for stable government in Lesotho after their election. Please also pray for the Diocese of Cape Town as we prepare for Diocesan Synod."
