New South African political party

22Feb09

Congress of the People (COPE), a new political party in South Africa formed by dissenting members of the African National Congress (ANC), the country’s ruling party (controls 8 of 9 provinces), has nominated a Methodist bishop, the Rev. Mvume Dandala, as COPE’s presidential candidate. The election will take place in April. Dandala is known as a peacemaker.

Nelson Mandela became South Africa’s first democratically elected president as a member of the ANC in 1994.

Speak your peace.
