Africa Melane talks to SA born cleric, philosopher, writer and broadcaster Reverend Lawrence Ndlovu.
Reverend Ndlovu wrote an article earlier this week in the Daily Maverick entitled 'Why Conscience Matters" where he writes "Who would have thought that there would come a time when the conscience would be pitted against the interests of a political party? This is what we have come to."
Minister Nomvula Mokonyane came out guns blazes criticising him.
When one thinks of the attributes of a politician, a strong conscience is not generally at the top of the list. One only has to mention the names Jacob Zuma or Bathabile Dlamini to make that point.
It is this lack of conscience or moral fortitude that Rev Lawrence Ndlovu sees as a threat to all we hold dear in SA.
Take a listen to Reverend Lawrence Ndlovu:
