THE KwaZulu-Natal Social Development Department says it will make available officials in its offices to follow up on allegations of abuse in the embattled KwaSizabantu Mission Church.

“We will take up this matter with the relevant unit in our department to try to meet with the victims in order to deal with the situation,” department spokesperson Mhlaba Memela said this week.

The church hit headlines on Saturday when News24 published the results of a seven-month investigation into the affairs of the mission, located in the Kranskop area, and allegations of a range of abuses. The report also alleged senior members accused of rape had been shielded and that millions of rands had been laundered in the mission’s business operations.
