SA is in crisis, says Archbishop Thabo Makgoba

CAPE TOWN/JOHANNESBURG – Cape Town Anglican Archbishop Thabo Makgoba says South Africa is in a crisis.

Makgoba was speaking at a gathering of the Socio-Economic Future of South Africa initiative, being led by religious leaders, business and community organisations.

Last week, the archbishop announced the formation of the initiative, which aims to address various crises facing South Africa.

He says South Africa’s faced with a crisis that’s threatening to tear its social fabric apart.

He adds this will send the country into a downward spiral from which it will struggle to escape.

Makgoba says the crisis is perhaps more serious than any the country has faced since the early 90s when violence was rife.

He says it can be attributed to high rates of unemployment, nationwide student unrest, poor economic growth, service delivery protests, pressure on health services and corruption within government.

The archbishop however says this does not mean post-apartheid achievements have been insignificant, because they are evidence that the country can do better.


At the same time, Makgoba says South Africa has lost its moral compass and it’s time for dialogue among leaders to address issues of reconciliation and distrust.

The coalition of leaders from across government and civil society has convened to address – what’s seen as – an overwhelming sense of disillusionment in the country.
