A journalist has been found in contempt of court for commenting on a pastor's Facebook post in which he thanked congregants for a Rolls Royce Wraith and a Sandton penthouse he received for his 42nd birthday.
According to reports, Solomon Ashoms Izang was previously ordered by the Johannesburg High Court to stop publishing defamatory comments about Alleluia Ministries International's pastor Alph Lukau or his church.
He has now been found in contempt of court for his latest comment, asking “Should Christians give to rich pastors?”.
