Beyers Naude – a man of God

At the end of January, the secretary of the South African Council of Churches (S.A.C.C.) is leaving his job. His name is the Reverend Beyers Naude. Beyers Naude promised the SACC that he would be the secretary for two years and now those two years are up.

Learn and Teach wanted to talk to this man with the Afrikaans name who works for an organisation that the government hates.
