African Transformation Movement (ATM) president Vuyolwethu Zungula says the party will work towards uniting Parliament and eradicating conflicts that occur within it. He was speaking at the Twelve Apostle Church in Christ in Botshabelo, near Bloemfontein.
The church was holding a special prayer on their apostle day, to pray for the government to overcome the challenges it faces.
The church is one of the churches that formed the ATM political party. The party has two seats in Parliament.
Zungula says they will make sure that political parties serve the people of South Africa in earnest.
“We are not there for own parties because that is not an ATM. Parliament is not an ANC Parliament, it’s the Parliament of the people of South Africa. Therefore, all of us as political parties we need to put our differences aside and work towards serving the people of South Africa. It is us as the people that need to take a stand and transform the politics of the country because everything starts in the politics; you can’t transform education, the economy without transforming the kind of politics we have in the country. We need a new kind of politics and politics that is focused on serving the people other than politics of being obsessed with power.”
Chief Apostle of the Twelve Apostle Church in Christ, Caesar Nongqunga, says the church is willing to support the African National Congress (ANC) government.
“This is a Pentecostal week, but since our President of the Republic of South Africa was also inaugurated; we had to pray for South Africa. We have engaged in prayers for the current government to do well in this current year’s office of government. Supporting this government is not supporting individuals, but it is to support the creation of God in Africa so that we stay and dwell well, enjoy happiness.”
