Bishop Merwyn Warns on Breede River Valley Uprising

Bishop Merwyn has called for mediation and political support for oppressed people in rural communities.

In a letter to Western Cape Premier Helen Zille on November 16, he said that “unless the underlying causes [of recent uprisings in the Breede Valley] are comprehensively dealt with, the anger and resentment may result in more bitterness and the loss of more lives.”
