The fifth bishop of the Bantu Church of Christ, New Brighton, Bishop John Bolana, has begged God to retain the African Ruling Party (ANC) in power.
Speaking during a blessing cum campaign service organized for Nelson Mandela Bay mayoral candidate; Danny Jordaan, Bolana reiterated his uncompromising loyalty to the ANC.
Reading from the book of Judges; on the rise of Judah; the bishop compared Jordaan to biblical Judah; begging God to have mercy and not let the Metro fall into “unworthy hands”.
Jordaan was also told at the service that God has handpicked him to rise up in the fight for the city; and that should the Metro fall into the hands of the enemy, it will be disastrous.
“The hardships experienced by the Israelites in Egypt; would be experienced by people in Nelson Mandela Bay if opposition groups win; If they win, they will step on us, on our necks.
Today, God is telling me to tell you, people of PE, that if you take and follow my words today, then he will be with you.
God is answering us and telling us that Comrade Danny Jordaan will rise up and fight against the enemy, because he has given Nelson Mandela Metro into his hands,” Bishop John Bolana said.

The clergyman urged the people of Nelson Mandela Bay not to cast their vote for opposition parties, thieves and deceivers.
“How could it be, that God could let the metro go to the enemy, while I live among them?”
We see how well Jordaan is doing in Nelson Mandela Bay, and you can even see the difference. Let’s give them a chance,” he added.
In a similar church service, held at Christian Revival Church, Pretoria; ANC MP, Thoko Didiza, reminded congregants that politicians ought to acknowledge God first in everything.

“We are given the responsibility to lead our nation and we should always put God in front of us.
We are here to come and worship and get renewed and we are also here to hear the Lord speak to us,” Didiza said.
Sessions of prayers were held while the out-of-favour MP was strongly prayed for.
