Leadership battles are often scandalous, debilitating, and even fatal.
And churches are no exception. One person has been killed in Mobapane, north of Pretoria this week. This after a tussle over who should succeed the late Reverend Glayton Modise at the International Pentecostal Holiness Church. And tension also boiled over at the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewa-hedo Church in Johannesburg during a service last Sunday. The SABC has obtained video footage of the church brawl involving dozens of congregants.
