Wednesday, 15th November, 2023

HLUTI:Sethu ‘Mankonkoni' Gamedze was assaulted and killed by members of the Devine Church on Sunday for invading the church, under the influence of alcohol.

As a result, the Pastor of the church and two(2) others have been arrested and will appear in court on Thursday morning.

Police Spokesperson Superintendent Phindile Vilakati had not responded to our questionnaire at the time of compiling this report. 

But one of the accused who spoke to this Swaziland News before the arrest, confirmed the death of Gamedze, he alleged that, the deceased wanted to stab their Pastor and they raised an alarm calling other community members.

“The community responded to the alarm swiftly and the young man was subsequently disciplined without intending to kill him, but sadly, he passed away," he said.

Worth-noting, the Devine Ministry whose Pastor has been arrested, is not a branch of the church whose Bishop is Nash Shongwe.
