Solomon Izang Ashoms is the founder of Movement Against Abuse in Churches and has made it his mission to lead the fight against fake pastors and prophets.
Ashoms is an ordained pastor but doesn’t lead a congregation due to his passion for activism.
On Friday, he completed a three-day one-man protest against religious leaders who abuse their power.
He aims to raise awareness of corrupt pastors who bring churches into disrepute by taking advantage of impoverished and vulnerable South Africans.
Ashoms based his protest in Pretoria, Sandton and Soweto as he feels that most of the church victims are based in those areas.
Ashoms said, "I have been teaching about this for the past ten years. I've endured threats and insults, yet today, people now come up to me and say they realise how they have been abused."
SowetanLIVE reported the significance of the three-day protest.
The timing is significant of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus.
Ashoms revealed that Pastor Lukau was replicating this timeline with his “resurrection” of Brighton Moyo.
Briefly.co.za understands that Ashoms had no shortage of volunteers to join him in his protest but chose to do it alone to prove to people that one man is all it takes to make a difference.
