One of the former bishops of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Southern Africa (ELCSA) – Dr Manas Buthelezi – passed on this morning. I don’t know much about when and how, but via my wife I got a message from the Church Wide Office of ELCSA.
Dr Buthelezi was – in his capacity as a well-known proponent of Black Theology – deeply involved in the fight against apartheid.
During a period he was the President of the South African Council of Churches.
There is so much to write about him. At this point I just want to pay my tribute to this Son of the soil.
A short article about him, you will find if you press here.
