Masowe Church member gunned down
In a tragic event, a man of God from South Africa was murdered after being shot by thugs over the church’s holy water rumored to have mystical powers.
According to the Daily Sun, the thugs heard that the church’s holy water was powerful and could aid them in committing crimes.
It is reported that the thugs raided the Masowe Church, which worships in an open space in Ivory Park near Tembisa, Ekurhuleni on Thursday and demanded the holy water.
A shot was fired and one of the church members was struck and died at the scene.
According to Church members who witnessed the incident, after the thugs fired the shot, they moved on to rob them of their valuables.
Captain Ralidzivha of Rabasotho Police Station confirmed the incident and warned the worshippers to be extra careful. He also went on saying that murder and armed robbery cases were opened and that cops are looking for the suspects.
“We are not saying they must not hold services but they must be careful,” he said.
Church members said that this was not the first time such an incident had happened and they had stopped conducting open space prayer vigils but some members were stubborn.
“We decided to stop worshipping at night but there are those who still do it,” said a member of the church.
Residents said that they heard gunshots on Thursday.
“Later we saw cops and heard that one of the church members had been killed. We wish these people would change their places of worship. It is dangerous to hold church services in open spaces.”
