SENOKOANE, BB (Tumi). The problematic nature of divorcing life from life. Studia Hist. Ecc. [online]. 2013, vol.39, n.2, pp.319-332. ISSN 2412-4265.
This article argues that the problem of divorcing religion and society is not African by nature. The argument is based on an African understanding that both religion and politics are part of our lives. Moreover, the article argues that secularism is not a problem for a traditional African as the non-mentioning of religion does not necessarily declare a non-religious state. In essence, the article argues that the non-mentioning of religion points to the core of religion as being assumed since those members of political parties and legislatures are influenced by their worldviews.
