Religious Leaders Threaten To ‘Shut SA’ If MK Party Doesn’t Win Elections

Failure to do so, according to Maluleke, would result in the closure of South Africa. However, he did not disclose the identities of the leaders he was representing.

Religious leaders in KwaZulu-Natal have sent a strong message to the Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC), expressing their intention to reject the electoral outcomes if their demands are not met.

The leaders, who claim to represent a coalition of religious and traditional groups, have threatened to “shut the country for good” if the MK party does not receive a two-thirds majority in the 2024 elections.

Speaking at a recent MK rally, a pastor named Vader Maluleke, purportedly representing the religious and traditional leaders, warned the IEC that they must ensure a two-thirds majority for the MK party and its leader, Nxamalala.

Failure to do so, according to Maluleke, would result in the closure of South Africa. However, he did not disclose the identities of the leaders he was representing.

The gathering took place in KwaXimba near Cato Ridge outside Durban, where former president Jacob Zuma addressed the crowd.

Zuma, who has been actively campaigning for the MK party, urged the people to vote for the party if they desired positive change. He also called upon pastors to pray for the party’s success in achieving a two-thirds majority, which he believes is necessary to address the issue of land ownership.

It is worth noting that Zuma, despite his support for the MK party, remains a member of the African National Congress (ANC). However, on Monday, the ANC national executive committee suspended his membership.

The threat from the religious leaders highlights the growing tensions and demands surrounding the upcoming elections in KwaZulu-Natal.

While it is essential to respect the rights of religious and traditional leaders to voice their concerns, it is equally important to ensure that the electoral process remains fair, transparent, and free from any undue influence.
