A church building under construction in Mogoditshane had a portion of its wall collapse this past Saturday killing a man and injuring another.

The church belonged to the Mission to the World Ministries International Church, and according to the pastor, it was the second time the building collapsed, though in the first incident there were no injuries or casualties. 

Last Thursday, or two days before the deadly collapse, a freak storm proved too strong for a chunk of the wall, which collapsed. Miraculously, there was no injury. However, while the Thursday incident was still fresh in the minds of the worshippers, a more painful incident happened on Saturday afternoon as another portion of the wall collapsed, resulting in the death of a worker and injury to his colleague.
