Sphokazi Mbali Nyandeni, the woman who was asked to stop dancing with members of the Nazareth Baptist Church (Shembe) in Durban on Tuesday has broken her silence on the matter.
Members of the Ebuhleni faction flooded into the Durban CBD on Tuesday and handed a memorandum to officials in which they demanded that Mduduzi be declared the church’s rightful leader.
In the video making rounds on social media, Nyadeni is see dancing with the men in white robes before one of the members ask her to move out of the way.
“I was so hurt, but I moved out of the way and watched them as they continued to dance. I was not being disrespectful, I just enjoy the way they dance, especially the men. I just saw people dancing and decided to join them.”
