On Tuesday (October 11), Freedom of Religion South Africa (FOR SA) joined 50+ religious and traditional leaders invited to a meeting at the CRL Rights Commission, to discuss the Commission’s findings and recommendations following its recent controversial investigation into the “commercialisation” of religion and abuse of people’s belief systems in South Africa.

According to the CRL, the investigation has produced evidence of commercialisation of religion and “non-compliance with the law”, including no bank accounts, annual financial reports, proper governance structures, or visas (for foreign religious leaders).

As a result, the CRL will recommend to parliament (amongst other things) that legislation be adopted, providing for “peer review mechanisms, registration of religious and traditional healers institutions, clearance and registration of religious practitioners and workers”.
