The Southern African Christian Initiative (Sachi) will host a two-day
Social Tolerance Conference at Fuerstenhof Hotel in Windhoek from
The aim of the conference is to identify key factors towards a climate
of tolerance in Southern Africa.
Sachi’s Founding Director, Miguel Antonio Gomez said prominent
experts from within Namibia meet guests from other SADC-countries
to debate the social, moral and legal aspects of tolerance.
“Pastors will meet political office bearers to discuss the similarities
in their mandates towards any group of persons with a difference.
Ideological backgrounds, moral fundamentalisms and populistic
profiteering of intolerance may come to the fore. By analysing
core mechanisms of social opinion-building in southern Africa the
religious leaders aim to reflect on the driving force towards a society
respectful to people with a difference,” said Gomez
Gomez also said the Minister of Gender Equality and Child Welfare,
to 12 of June.
