- Mmusi Maimane was invited to speak at the Christian Revival Church in Durban and he moved the congregation with his words
- Maimane addressed racism and how wrong he feels it is to be fuelled by hatred
The Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane spoke to the hearts of South Africans when he addressed racism and hatred in South Africa.
Maimane talked at a church gathering in Chatsworth, Durban, on Sunday and he had the congregation on its feet.
Of the 1600 people gathered at the Christian Revival Church, none of them could contain their excitement at Maimane's passionate words.
Maimane said that racism should offend everyone. He added that it is wrong when people look at others and make them "sub-human".
IOL News reports that the senior minister of the Christian Revival Church, Dr Paul Lutchman, stated that the comments of Julius Malema are racist because he sees colour.
Dr Lutchman added that he was born in Africa, and he is African.
Briefly.co.za learned that the minister gave the DA leader a leather-bound King James Version Bible and prayed for him.
Dr Lutchman also said that the church must stay strong and never compromise their beliefs, even when other politicians want to use the church's platform for politics.
