    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.
