The 10 ANC supporters who tragically died in a bus accident last week have made it to heaven, several sources close to Pastor Mboro have confirmed.
“We can confirm that the 10 martyrs are in good spirits after making the long journey,” one source who refusedÂ to be named, said, adding that Mboro was ready to provide pictures, should the media require them.
Another source said the 10Â martyrs were first taken by Tata (Madiba) to the homes of Andries (Tatane) and the miners (of Marikana) as well asÂ many of those foreigners killed in South Africa, before they entered through the pearly gates.
Speaking at the funeral, President Jacob Zuma saidÂ theÂ tragic passing of the 10 ANC members should serve as reminderÂ that “the ANC is an idea that must live beyond all of us”.
According to EWNÂ Zuma thanked the families of the deceased for borrowing the party what he calls â€œpeople who gave their lives to the movementâ€.
“The lives of these comrades are of equal worth to those who we now regard as ancestors of the ANC,” the president said.
Another source close to heavenly arrangements however said the newly arrived ANC members were enjoying the fruits of heavenly democracy, and did not seek to be called upon to inspire jaded South Africans to fill stadiums, be it in yellow, or blue.
“A better life for all is indeed possible – as we have seen here in heaven,” theÂ source said. “All of us here just want what’s good for the country but if we are called to the front lines of the campaign we cannot refuse.”
“It’s what happens during local elections,” the source said.
