- Nokuthula Mavuso had enough of the inequality and the way women are treated at her family church, the Apostolic Faith Mission
- The Abomama actress shared that she had many issues at the church, which is what drove her to leave
- She also shared a recent incident in which girls were sent home over how short their skirts were
Nokuthula Mavuso, known for her roles in The River and Abomama, recently opened up on leaving her family church. She used to attend sermons at the Apostolic Faith Mission.
She shared that she had experienced many issues there, including inequality. Briefly.co.za gathered that Nokuthula also opened up about an incident.
According to her, a group of young women were sent home because their skirts were deemed too short. The men had apparently complained.
For the entertainer, this wasn't right.
"I quit the family church AFM after an elder sent a whole lot of teenage girls home for wearing short skirts. The men had complained. Anything above the knee was unacceptable. Mom tried but I wasn't having it."
Nokuthula added that women didn't have any important roles in the church. Many people experience that the church holds on to the belief that women should remain in the background.
"The only time a woman would be on the pulpit was on Mother's Day. Women were mainly supporters of the ministry. I was raised by a woman who drummed equality into my head. Does God not appreciate women preaching the Word? I had questions."
The actress didn't say where she would be going now for her religious needs.
