Malema calls ACDP’s Meshoe a ‘tsotsi pastor’ for spanking his kids
The preacher and politician said the ConCourt ruling outlawing corporal punishment will lead to children 'turning to drugs, particularly nyaope'.
On Thursday, African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP) leader Reverend Kenneth Meshoe took to Twitter to criticise Wednesday’s Constitutional Court ruling banning corporal punishment, and to reveal that he and his wife “occasionally used physical discipline while raising our three children”.
“Don’t be fooled by liberals – using discipline in love is not the same as abuse,” he added.
In another tweet, he said that “banning corporal correction is not going to make SA children wiser, but they will become more unruly [and] disrespect [sic] to their parents, teachers [and] authority in general”.
Meshoe is not the only South African who wants corporal punishment allowed on religious grounds, with the Constitutional Court challenge to the 2017 high court ruling outlawing it the result of an appeal by civil society group Freedom of Religion South Africa (For SA).Read more: The Citizen News
