Holy snakes! Cultural rights body to give update on the ‘abuse’ of people’s religious beliefs

Rabalago was subsequently found guilty of assault with the intent to cause grievous bodily harm and contravening the Agricultural Stock Remedies Act earlier this year.

These and other scandals caused the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of Cultural‚ Religious and Linguistic Communities (CRL) to launch an investigation into the “commercialisation of religion and the abuse of people’s belief systems”.

A presentation of their recommendations which included that every religious practitioner must be registered and fall under umbrella organisations and that every religious leader should have a location where he or she conducts religious ceremonies – was made to parliament last year.

But now‚ in the wake of Mnguni’s dog food incident‚ the CRL says it will host a meeting in Cape Town on Thursday to “update on the commercialisation of religion and abuse of the people’s belief systems report as well as the draft code of conduct for religious leaders”.
