In honouring the life of Benedict Daswa yesterday, South Africans were encouraged to stop violence even if it they did not agree with each other. Daswa was beatified by the Roman Catholic Church, and was named South Africa's first martyr.
In the next step towards sainthood, Benedict Daswa will be beatified by the Roman Catholic Church in Limpopo in September. A shrine will be built in the village near where he lived, open to pilgrimages. Daswa was murdered in 1990 for taking a stand against witchcraft.
