It is the State’s case that on July 11, at around 6.30pm, Hlongwane knocked off duty and secured the church by closing all the windows.

He locked the church doors, leaving the property and everything intact, before proceeding home.

The State had it that the following day, Hlongwane went to the church, on the second floor of Gollop Blank Building, where he connected a zoom meeting system — an Acer ChromeBook, a Canon Camera and a tripod.
