Archbishop to celebrate in Bay

FORMER political prisoner Archbishop Njongonkulu Ndungane will celebrate his consecration anniversary in Port Elizabeth this week.

The African Monitor founder, who has been in the ministry for almost 40 years, was consecrated as a bishop on September 8 1991 and has chosen to mark his anniversary this year at the St Stephens Anglican Church in New Brighton on Sunday.

The 72-year-old Ndungane received a call to serve God in the ministry while incarcerated on Robben Island between 1963 and 1966.

The archbishop said he had decided to celebrate the day at the New Brighton church as he would be in Port Elizabeth on Saturday to attend Professor Barney Pityana's 30-year celebration as an ordained minister at the same church.
