A pastor , advocate and politician has took it upon himself to fight the police officers of Sebokeng to issue an apology to pastors who were arrested in Sebokeng last month before the president Ramaphosa announced the opening of churchs to 50 members.
What happened is that different pastors of Sebokeng gathered on an illegal church gathering under lockdown regulations at that time the president has stopped religious gathering as COVID-19 cases were increasing daily.
Police invaded the gathering and fired rubber bullets at the congregation who were attending the illegal church gathering and a old woman was hurt and left bleeding due to this result.
The police also arrested the pastors who were involved in organizing the gathering. Now advocate Maile is fighting for the police to issue an apology to the pastor who spent the night in jail.
Its not clear on what basic should the police apologies as they were tasked with a responsibility to help disperse the illegal church gathering which was happening at that moment.
