DISASTER STRIKES SDA CHURCH AGAIN: BETHESAIDA CHURCH BUILDING COLLAPSES, 2 COMFIRMED DEAD
By Jerome Mwambazi
The SDA church is in mourning again after Bethsaida church building collapsed this afternoon injuring several congregants and 2 are already comfirmed dead.
The church is located in Kasama West mission district near Chiba west.
The disaster occured after a heavy downpour coupled with a storm in the area, damaging the foundation of the church resulting in the walls falling inside.
An eye l witness comfirmed to this reporter that several congregants were severely injured.
Recently, the church in Lusaka lost 6 youths who drowned on Lake Kariba in a bizzare swimming competition on the man-made lake.
Again the poor people. Everything is sticking the poor masses. This is sad.
Who approved this poor building for public use?
This is no accident but negligence!
All similar buildings must be inspected and demolished!
This is sad, very sad. Condolences to the families and the church.The SDA Church should start behaving like Jehovah’s witnesses when it comes to building places of worship. Building and construction professionals in the JW movement offer their expertise free of charge during construction. As a result they build good and safe places of worship because of the hands of experts. It’s not the case with the 7th DA. Poor congregations struggle alone as if they don’t belong to a global Christian organisation.
Yours is a good observation, Chikubabe. It’s high time building standards were enforced strictly by local authorities.
