From NEWS 24 (South Africa):
The Anglican cathedral parish of St Albans in Pretoria has closed its doors because of death threats, confrontations, disruptions and allegations of corruption against its bishop. One priest who feared for his life had already resigned.
The church leadership under Bishop Johannes Seoka wrote to parishioners informing them of the closure and suspension of all forms of worship with immediate effect on Thursday. On Friday, members of the cathedral vowed to fight the closure and urged parishioners to come and worship outside the premises. Members were also consulting with lawyers to seek an urgent court order to force Seoka to reopen the church gates before Sunday.
Seoka said the allegations had nothing to do with the closure.
