Kenneth Meshoe is the leader of South Africa’s largest Christian party, the ACDP (African Christian Democratic Party).
He has been its head since 1993 and became a member of parliament in 1994, making him one of longest standing members of Parliament in post-apartheid South Africa.
The media has criticised him for his outspoken views on a number of issues, including homosexuality, abortion, and same-sex marriage.
Which means he’s on the right side of history.
The ACDP’s main focus is, in its own words, social justice, human rights, and morality.
Western society – of which South Africa is a part, to some degree – is imploding due to, among other things, degeneracy.
Values don’t matter.
Don’t stand for anything.
Meanwhile, the ACDP is opposed to abortion, same-sex marriage, and euthanasia. It also supports the death penalty for certain heinous crimes.
The ACDP has been a vocal critic of the ANC and has (correctly) accused the ruling party of corruption, mismanagement, and human rights abuses.
The ACDP has also been vocal critical of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) and has accused the EFF of being a racist and xenophobic party (which it is).
The ACDP has never won a national election in South Africa.
Not that it matters, though, if you’re interested in principles.
However, it has won seats in the National Assembly and the provincial legislatures. The ACDP is a small party, but it has a healthy following among Christians in South Africa.
Kenneth chatted to me about his history, lessons he’s learnt, and why he opposes Covid™ vaccines.
