Namibian songbird Adora Kisting has rejected accusations that she was involved in a mob fight involving ELCRN church members over the weekend.
Lilanie Kisting also known as Adora has however apologised should her actions have brought harm to any person, or organization that she is affiliated to. This followed a string of social media posts and voice clips which implicates Kisting in the mob fight and tribal attacks on some members of the church.
In a statement shared on social media Adora said she was put in a situation at a church leadership meeting that made it necessary for her to defend her life and that of her beloved mother, which was under threat by both men and women from some factions of the congregation. She also said that the matter has been reported to the police.
“I also have taken note of a voice note being circulated, by an individual (female) narrating fabricated events that supposedly transpired of the day in question. I’d advise that person or any other person to refrain from circulating those voice notes because they are untruthful, malicious, tribal and defamatory. Necessary steps have been taken in terms of the Namibian law,” she said.
Mensia Ngunovandu the victim, however, said Adora and her entire family assaulted her, pulled her hair and slapped her through the face multiple times.
“Adora pulled my hair twice and slapped me on my face. She even ripped my prescribed glasses from my face and broke it right there. I have my medical paper and a case number from the police (sic),” she said.
The /Namtere singer who is also scheduled to perform at the NAMAs next weekend further wrote that she is disappointed in the ELCRN church for allowing this behaviour to become the norm without proper intervention. Adora has recommitted herself to the fight against gender-based violence, tribalism and cyber bullying after she landed in the public eye during a mob fight at the Evangelical Lutheran Church in the Republic of Namibia (ELCRN) church.
