Things have intensified at the Port Elizabeth High Court where pastor Timothy Omotoso and his co-accused, Zukiswa Sitho and Lusanda Sulani, are on trial for charges related to sexual abuse and human trafficking.
However, outside the courtroom and across our shores, it has been discovered that the pastor’s Jesus Dominion International Church — to which he is one of the four directors — does not have a legitimate address for its headquarters in the United Kingdom (U.K).
OMOTOSO CHURCH HEADQUARTERS LISTED AS A POSTAL ADDRESS
Natalie Powell, an eNCA correspondent from the U.K delved deeper into the operations of the Jesus Dominion International Church and discovered that the church is registered to a postal address in Sutton, West Sussex.
The building, called Chartered House, is actually the address of the church’s accountants, Powell reported. She also revealed that, interestingly, the church has been registered eight times before, all at different addresses, dating back to 1999.
CHURCH RECEIVES CLOSE TO R1-MILLION IN DONATIONS IN 2018
It was also revealed that the church, up to this point, has received a total of R970 000 in donations this year. On Omotoso’s website, which is filled with religious propaganda, also has a ‘Donate’ button that redirects users to a separate window.
On the ‘Donate’ page, users are encouraged to “sow a seed into the ministry” by sending money into the ‘Tim Omotoso Global Outreach’.
People can either send money to a South African bank account, a Nigerian one as well as one in the U.K. There has been no indication, at this point what purpose these donations serve.
Omotoso’s flashy lifestyle has been laid bare in what has been a very intense trial. More witnesses are expected to testify against the pastor later on in the trial.
