About Lutchmanna George Papiah

Lutchmanna George Papiah (1954 – 2024)

Brief overview:

Lutchmanna (70), known as George, the caretaker at the Covenant Kingdom Ministries, was found dead inside the church in Trenance Manor, on the morning of Saturday 9th March 2024. He was found by a cleaner, gagged with cloth stuffed into his mouth and laying on his stomach with his hands tied to his legs behind his back.

“We believe that the robbery occurred on Friday night, when the suspects gained entry into the church by forcing open the door. George was tied up and gagged. The suspects ransacked the church and made off with equipment valued at over R500,000,” said Pastor Jerome Naidoo. He described Papiah’s death as sadistic and brutal.
