Gauteng police have reportedly confirmed the second death of a church member of the International Pentecostal Holiness Church, better known as IPHC, who died in hospital after sustaining shot wounds following a brazen armed robbery that has left church elders ‘scratching their heads’.
More than R1.3-million worth of tithes were stolen during the robbery in which 12 armed men ambushed the church members travelling in two cars to a bank located in the east of Johannesburg earlier this month.
Sunday World reported at the weekend that Phillimon Moshima died from his wounds last week.
The passing of Moshima comes after the shooting left church member Mashudu Mulaudzi dead on the scene. He was buried in Venda, Limpopo, last week.
