“LEADERS: TAKE RESPONSIBILITY!”
“What have you done? Your neighbour’s blood cries out to me from the ground!” (Genesis 4:10)
The Jesuit Institute South Africa strongly condemns the deplorable violence, thuggery and looting which has taken place in Johannesburg, Ekurhuleni and Pretoria. Violence, robbery and lawlessness can never be condoned and are never acceptable ways of acting. The Prophet Isaiah tell us clearly: “For I, the Lord of justice, hate robbery and wrong” (Isaiah 61:8).
