Saturday marked a year since the tragic Nigeria building collapse which claimed the lives of 116 people, of whom 85 were South African.

Survivors and families of those who died gathered in Midrand on Saturday, for the first commemoration of the tragedy.

Although the leader of the Synagogue Church pastor TB Joshua did not attend the event, he posted a message dedicated to the bereaved families on his Facebook page.

This is what the controversial church leader had to say:

“It is now one year since our beloved brothers and sisters slept in the Lord. For those of us who find it difficult to let go, we must realise that their death is an unavoidable call – a call to our Heavenly home that no one can disobey.

Of course we all know that this has nothing to do with age, status, rich or poor or even the nature of death itself – as this happened to our predecessors, including the Apostles who paid the supreme price to bring the Gospel to all of us. Some were even beheaded at their prime age. Others were stoned to death in the course of the Gospel. Some others were even crucified upside down, not to talk of the ones that were dropped inside boiling oil.

For those who of us who cannot trace or touch the body of those who are resting in the bosom of the Lord, we must realise that such examples abound among God’s Generals in the Bible.”
