On Monday the 13th October, the inquest into the building collapse begins. It is reported that TB Joshua will take to the stand, but we’ll believe that when we see it. SCOAN have been doggedly continuing their propaganda, flipflopping between a mad hypothesis involving a UFO and claiming it was a controlled explosion. Hopefully this inquest will put to rest these ridiculous claims and the appropriate people will be held to account for their irresponsibility. Please pray that the inquest will be honest, thorough and get to the truth.
Suffering of the victims
Some of the bereaved families have started to receive a paltry amount of compensation from SCOAN. We’ve heard figures from between R2000 – R7000 ($180 – $630) per victim. For reference, it is likely the deceased family member paid at least R5000 on flights to Lagos alone.
Some families have not even received anything. One lady who lost her husband has told us “He was the only breadwinner in our house and he went to see TB Joshua in the hope that he will receive prayer for the cancer he has been fighting for almost a year. We saved up for the trip as this was our last hope. I am now at home and do not even have money to pay the rent or the kids school fees as there has been no income. My husband was not suppose to be gone for so long and now he is gone for good.”
One man Thanduxolo Doro lost his sister in the building collapse. He is mobilising a group of bereaved families to sue TB Joshua. You can visit his site here: http://tbjoshuamustaccountfordeaths.co.za/ we will have an interview with him posted in the next couple of days.
Please pray for the grieving relatives of the deceased. Pray they will be supported and that justice will be served.
