“The CLR Rights Commission says it will issue subpoenas for two Pretoria pastors as it begins its investigation into church leaders taking advantage of communities.
Hearings are expected to be held for Soshanguve based Pastor Penuel Mnguni and Pastor Lesego Daniel from Garankuwa who will have to explain their controversial church antics.
The two are accused of making congregants drink petrol with others being fed snakes, grass and objects during services.
The commission says it will also address incidents of religious malpractice in other parts of the country.
Officials say they will interrogate the religious merit of the church leaders’ actions as well as whether their churches are properly registered.
Commission chairperson Thoko Mkhwanazi-Xaluva said, “We are trying to get hold of the two pastors in question so that our hearings can start. We’ve set up a committee.”
