JMPD shuts down 16 illegal churches


    The Johannesburg Metro Police Department has closed down 16 churches since the beginning of the year because they’re not complying with the city’s bylaws.

    JMPD has now formed a partnership with church leaders to raise more awareness about the city’s laws.

    The department says no one is above the law, even faith-based organisations.

    “The Johannesburg metro police will never allow such churches to operate in the city, I think you said rogue churches, they will never be allowed,” said JMPD head David Tembe.
