Covenant Adoption ... in Africa

The Covenant may not be lost yet. Southern Africa has adopted (yes, not a typo, adopted) it. Having previously adopted it, seen all sorts of prevarication and non-adoption of it since, nevertheless our Anglican sisters and brothers in the land of the terrifying Bismarck Du Plessis has reconfirmed that is has adopted the Anglican Covenant.

Presumably, Peter, that covenant relationship that South Africa has now affirmed will not include the GAFCON Provinces. In this situation, I can see why you're pleased. If S.A. wants to covenant with the C.of E., I see that as a very positive move for them both. I guess it gives the Anglican Church in South Africa a 'de facto' relationship with ACANZP - as we are in Communion with Canterbury!
