Prophet Bushiri's Enlightened Christian Gathering church was forced to cut short their Friday service on the 15th after a power failure at the premises.
The South African Police Service confirmed that the church had experienced problems that had the church close its doors at around 9pm.
Captain Augustinah Selepe told the media that the church's solar panels and generators were dysfunctional.
Yesterday, [Friday] the ECG church experienced [a] power failure at one of the halls that they were using [in the City of Tshwane Events Center]. The generators and solar panels were also dysfunctional. SAPS and the Tshwane metro police advised the church that it was not safe to proceed with the church service under the current circumstances of power failure.
Briefly.co.za gathered from a report by IOL News that the church voluntarily chose to end the service while the police stuck around to make sure that everything is in order.
The congregation started dispersing at around 9 pm. The police left the Tshwane Events Center at around midnight.
Fortunately, the church was able to avoid any drama and chaos like what happened on 28 December 2018
