Pastor Omotoso's Church Shut Down - ANC Women's League

Over 100 people came together outside the entrance of the Jesus Dominion International church in Port Elizabeth on Sunday to demand that the church close shop and that the building is shut down. The church's pastor Timothy Omotoso is on trial for rape and human trafficking. ANC Women's League leader Nomafa Sinetile said that it had been confirmed that the building was zoned for business use and not a church. "The municipality has confirmed that the building is zoned for business use, it is now shut down officially and the service has been suspended," she said.
