The purpose of the summit was to provide a platform to discuss the issue of land reform, focusing specifically on the ethical aspects of the debate.
The objectives of the MRM Land and Soil Summit were inter alia to:
- Discuss the moral and ethical implication of the land reform process.
- Provide a broad forum to engage on the centrality of land to human existence.
- Broaden the discussion on land expropriation without compensation.
- Prepare for participation in the parliamentary consultative process.
The Moral Regeneration Movement [MRM] called for a Theologian’s Colloquium to deliberate and discuss what they thought the role of the ologians in Nation Building should be. This was born out of a concern to what some perceived to be the “muted voice” of Theologians in the face of the deep moral crisis facing the country, i.e. rampant crime, systemic corruption, conspicuous consumption, femicide, a disempowering education system, intraparty murderous factionism, dehumanising poverty, when the people were expecting theologians to make their voice heard. As Father Mkhatshwa put it, it was quite possible that many pastors, reverends and priest had done sterling work in their individual capacities in their churches. The concern however was the silence of the theologian’s collective voice. This provoked in the minds of some theologians who had been involved with the Institute for Contextual Theology the need for a discussion of what has been happening post 1994 and also to map out what the role of theologians could/should be in the context of rebuilding the nation.
