Adora responds to hair pulling and slapping saga

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.

28/08/2019 Press Release RE: Clarity on speculations of ELCRN events Good day I have taken cognizance of a social media post that is circulating targeted to pursue an already existing agenda. This is an agenda of tribalism, harassment, defamation of character, threats, and spreading of malicious rumors; has been on-going for the past 9 months. It is public knowledge that there has been tension between different factions of the church dating back to 2013. I was however put in a situation that warranted me to defend my life and that of my beloved Mother, which was under threat by both men and women from some factions of the congregation. I am however, not going to dwell on that matter as it is in the trusted hands of the Namibian 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. I would like to further air my disappointment in the church, as they have allowed this behavior to become a norm without a true intervention. Do I have to lose the lives of my parents before you put an end to this? I want to assure my fans that no harm has come to me, and although threats have been made, and that I’m being targeted I put all my faith in the Lords hands. I have notified the Namibian police of those very threats on my life; I trust that they’ll handle it with the urgency it requires. I apologize should my actions have brought harm to any person, or organization that my brand is a patron of. The #TourdeAugustus as well as other performances are to take place as scheduled. I continue to be a champion for gender based violence, cyber bullying, I further continue to be a voice against tribalism through the concept of One Namibia, One nation. Yours in the fight against tribalism Adora Kisting
