African Christian Democratic Party



African Christian Democratic Party – Rev. Kenneth Meshoe, president

Why should the Jewish community vote for you?

The African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP) is the most outspoken defender of the right of Israel to exist within safe and secure borders in South Africa. More than that, the ACDP loves the Jewish people.

The South African Jewish community feels let down by the government and isolated in South Africa. What will you do to make sure that South Africa is a welcoming place for the Jewish community?

The ACDP and the broader Christian community also feel let down by an African National Congress (ANC) government that has embraced Hamas. I will continue to tell South Africans that the country needs Israel’s technology, particularly water technology, to help resolve our challenges.

What’s your stance on South Africa taking Israel to the International Court of Justice?

That was a foolish and serious blunder. South Africa should stand with Israel and not with Hamas, Iran, or any other jihadist group or country threatening to annihilate Israel.

Antisemitism has been on the rise in South Africa as demonstrated in the Judicial Services Commission, Cricket SA, and Parliament, with attacks on Jewish institutions and schools. What would you do to tackle antisemitism of this nature?

I strongly condemn hatred for Israel and antisemitism in all its forms anywhere in society and government departments. I will continue to expose the foolishness of rejecting true friends while embracing people who are killing Christians in many parts of the world, particularly in Africa and in Islamic states.

What’s your position on the relationship between Israel and South Africa? What would you want it to be like?

The relationship between Israel and South Africa isn’t healthy, and will therefore improve after the ANC has lost power. I want South Africa to have an excellent relationship with Israel so that it can reap the economic benefits from such a relationship.

Should South Africa open its embassy in Israel and return its ambassador to the country? If so, why? If not, why not?

South Africa must open its embassy in Israel to facilitate economic ties and to make it easier for the Christian community to visit the holy land more frequently.

You have forward-thinking views on women’s rights, but don’t approve of abortion. Can you explain this?

We believe that life begins at conception, and should therefore be protected while the baby is still in the mother’s womb. Abortion denies unborn babies the right to live. The ACDP believes everyone should be given the right to live regardless of their age and where they live.
