Reverend Siyabulela Gidi

The Reverend Gidi was Director of the South African Council of Churches. He was known for his campaign to prevent the eviction of shanty town dwellers but wished to be known only as an environmental and human rights activist. Calling for a transformation of society, Reverend Gidi proposed a theology of humility and admission of our failure to protect the earth and its creatures. He said we must now ensure justice for all and promote the wellbeing of the earth and all creatures.
