A Pretoria church could be facing sexual abuse claims.
A steward from the Central Methodist Church in Pretoria has been accused by a group of young women of sexual harassment.
The aggrieved group took to the church’s altar to stage a silent protest, disrupting last Sunday’s church service.
The group of women could be seen in a video doing the rounds on social media, staging a silent protest followed by an altercation with some of the church leaders.
The church said on Tuesday is was greatly perturbed by what happened.
“We are disturbed and saddened by what gave rise to such action,” said the church’s presiding bishop, Ziphozihle Siwa.
Siwa said the church was more disappointed by how the matter had been handled by the church leaders.
