A former church leader, who is unvaccinated, is under the spotlight after he led a church service on Sunday for a group of people in Saweni, Lautoka, through Zoom.

The former Christian Mission Fellowship International (CMFI) Pastor, Josaia Tokea, had conducted a Sunday church service after forming the church group ‘New Way Ministry’ about two weeks ago.

Claims are that the new church group is being operated online.

When the Fiji Sun contacted Pastor Tokea yesterday, Mrs Tokea spoke on his behalf: “We are not in church, we are not giving any comments.”

A member of the CMFI church, who wished to remain anonymous, said he came across a live-streamed video on the Facebook showing Pastor Tokea leading the service.

Claims are that the zoom featured Pastor Tokea at his home while the other members, who were part of the choir group, were at the residence of a CMFI church member joined by more than 300 viewers.

It is believed that some of the members in attendance were not vaccinated.

“I was chatting with a friend yesterday (Monday) as we were browsing through Facebook and we saw the story uploaded of the church service being conducted in Lautoka. He led a gathering on the video, those people follow him and we believe half of them are not vaccinated,” he said.

The wife of a CMFI church member, who also attended the Sunday church service, claimed her husband was not vaccinated.

She, however, is vaccinated.
