Right-thinking and morally just South Africans must be vigilant against ominous threats to the Constitution, former Archbishop of Cape Town Njongonkulu Ndungane said on Thursday.

He said the country's constitutional democracy was being threatened by “ominous signs”, including proposed legislation.

“These threats include legislation such as the so-called 'secrecy bill', the SAPS Amendment Bill, the Legal Practice Bill and the Traditional Courts Bill, all of which contain elements that do not sit comfortably with our Constitution.”

Ndungane was speaking at the University of the Witwatersrand, where he was awarded an honorary doctorate of literature. – Sapa
