This chapter explores the religion of Mathole Motshekga, the African National Congress' (ANC) chief in Parliament in 2009. As founder and director of the Kara Heritage Institute, Motshekga endorsed the return to indigenous African religion called the Hermetic mysteries of ancient Egypt. He also founded the secret brotherhood Bonabakulu Abasekhemu, also known as the Ancient Ones of Khem, to preserve the original Egyptian wisdom traditions throughout Africa. While expounding on this African theosophy through media, public events, and the Parliament, Motshekga defended the divine right of indigenous African royalty, calling for the restoration of the theocracy of traditional leadership in a democratic South Africa.
