THEY DIED NOT IN VAIN
On Friday, September 12, 2014 at about 13:50pm a building collapsed in the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) killing one hundred and fifteen (115) believers. Eighty four(84) of the dead were citizens of South Africa. Many more were injured.
On 17th of February, 2013 a new struggle was born in South Africa. It was the founding of ‘United Nigerian Wives in South Africa (UNWISA)’ – a union of South African women who are legitimately married to Nigerian citizens living in South Africa. A growing boil – painful and dangerous – on the body-politics of South Africa seems to have called for the conception and delivery of this union.
But, the key vision of UNWISA is to further the strides of freedom and justice so that all who live in South Africa shall enjoy equal treatment before the law irrespective of their sex, or creed, or origin, or race, or tongue, or colour. And UNWISA is sworn to go to the ends of the earth in order to make this vision the reality of everyday life in South Africa.
