KwaSizabantu is a non-denominational Christian mission station based in Zululand, South Africa.
It began as a small group in 1966, led by Erlo Stegen, and has grown to become one of the largest mission stations in Africa, including its own radio station, school, farming, and more. South Africa’s largest bottled water brand, aQuellé, comes from KwaSizabantu.
Zululand is historically significant as the home of the Zulu people and the seat of their kingdom in the 19th century. The Zulu Kingdom was a highly organised and militaristic society, most famously led by King Shaka Zulu. Under his rule, the Zulu Kingdom expanded its territory and influence, becoming one of the most formidable empires in southern Africa.
I have visited KwaSizabantu a few times and intend to visit many more times because it is a great place with a great overarching message encompassing:
Believing in God offers a sense of purpose and direction in life. It provides a moral compass, helping people make ethical choices. Most people at KwaSizabantu, with whom I’ve spoken, are Christian and exude a strong sense of happiness.
Over the past few years, there has been a well-orchestrated attack, by South Africa’s mainstream media, against the mission. Most of the attacks are either fabricated or outright nonsense and, to know why, two good places to start are a recent documentary series by Noseweek and a book called A Journey To The Truth.
Roman Cabanac is a friend of mine and hosts the Morning Shot channel on YouTube. He travelled with me, a few days ago, to KwaSizabantu.
