Wednesday 9 October: Thabo Makoba - Archbishop of Cape Town
When Thabo Makgoba was made Archbishop of Cape Town in 2006, he was filling some big shoes as the successor to Archibishop Desmond Tutu. Audrey Brown meets Archbishop Makgoba to hear about his rise from poverty in the Alexandra Township, and the challenges he has faced. The Archbishop outlines his concerns for South Africa as it’s forced to face up to a future without Nelson Mandela, and for the General Elections in 2014 as the country is still grappling with its post-apartheid identity. And he discusses the role of the Church in this political climate, and in the religious life of South Africa’s Christians.
