Vukile Mehana Sexist Comments

Vukile Mehana audio recording making the rounds on social media reveals a conversation between Mehana and Raymond Sibanga expressing sexists comments about women in the ministry. It is not clear when the conversation took place; however, they started making round in early January 2019. The African National Congress (ANC) says it will look into the controversy surrounding Mehena who serves as the Chaplain-General Reverend.

The party pulled Mehana out of its celebrations planned for Durban on 8th January 2019. He was set to officiate the celebrations.

In the audio recording, The men are heard blasting women priests, suggesting that their gender identity makes them incapable of performing the role.

Mehana has since come under fire with the views being condemned by the Methodist Church and the South African Council of Churches.

ANC acting spokesperson Zizi Kodwa released a statement which read: “We are concerned, that’s why we’re saying in the statement that we’ve noted with disappointment. The ANC leadership will soon discuss the matter and if there is a possible candidate for replacement. We don’t want to deal with the matter as well as the coming events of the ANC. The church has accepted our notion that he should not officiate the upcoming events of the ANC.”
