    The Role of the Church in the #FeesMustFall Movement in South Africa: Practical Theological Reflection.Mookgo S. Kgatle - 2018 - Hts Theological Studies 74 (1):1-8.
    In 2015 and 2016, South Africa experienced one of the unique student-led protests since the dawn of democracy that touched the world, the #FeesMustFall movement. Out of the many demands that the students made in the movement, one is outstanding, fee-free higher education. A large number of publications have been written on the movement from an economical and educational point of view. Most of these publications argue that a fee-free higher education for all students is not an affordable or sustainable (...)

    The Causes and Nature of the June 2016 Protests in the City of Tshwane: A Practical Theological Reflection.Mookgo S. Kgatle - 2017 - Hts Theological Studies 73 (3):1-8.
    South Africa has recently experienced a series of public protests. The common element is that violence is becoming evident in these protests. This article uses the June 2016 protests in the city of Tshwane as an example to address the root causes of such protests. On 20 June 2016, the African National Congress announced that the city of Tshwane mayoral candidate for the 3 August 2016 municipal elections in South Africa is the former public works minister and ANC National Executive (...)

    A Practical Theological Approach to the Challenge of Poverty in Post-1994 South Africa: Apostolic Faith Mission as a Case Study.Mookgo S. Kgatle - 2017 - Hts Theological Studies 73 (3).
    This article demonstrates a practical theological approach to the challenge of poverty in post-1994 South Africa by using Apostolic Faith Mission as a case study. It argues that while the Reconstruction Development Plan, the Growth Employment and Reconstruction strategy, Accelerated Shared Growth Initiative for South Africa, New Growth Path and the National Development Plan have achieved some level of economic growth, the majority of people in South Africa still live in poverty. To establish this argument, the article starts first by (...)

    Towards a Decolonial Hermeneutic of Experience in African Pentecostal Christianity: A South African Perspective.Mookgo S. Kgatle & Thabang R. Mofokeng - 2019 - Hts Theological Studies 75 (4):1-7.
    The idea for this article was developed in ecumenical discussion regarding the worrisome developments in some neo-Pentecostal ministries where stories of snake-eating, petrol-drinking, false prophecies and so on were being alleged. A burning question during the discussion was: what is it with the hermeneutic of experience that makes it possible for such stories to arise? Furthermore, how can this situation be remedied? The researchers set to answer this question by conducting a literature study on the subject of hermeneutics of African (...)

  9. Demythologising Factors Associated with HIV and AIDS Among Pentecostals: An Effective Way of Dealing with the Epidemic in South Africa.Mookgo S. Kgatle - 2019 - Hts Theological Studies 75 (1).
    The recent statistics on the prevalence of HIV and AIDS shows that the number of people living with the virus keep on increasing amidst government’s interventions to deal with the epidemic. Pentecostal churches have a potential to deal with the problem, given their theology of experience, but are hindered by some myths about the factors associated with the epidemic highlighted in this article, such as the demonisation of sex and HIV and AIDS, judgemental views, denominationalism and condemnation of condoms. Many (...)
