A Baptist Church in South Africa seems to have placed the virginity of ladies as a necessity as they carried out a test on their female members to prove their virginity.
The church in South Africa identified as Nazareth Baptist Church carried out a virginity test on unmarried female members and gave those who passed, a certificate of virginity.
The test is said to be an effort to encourage chastity among the ladies in society.
The Church is, however, located at Ebuhleni, the northern part of Durban in South Africa.
Topnaija understands that the church carried out a free virginity test on ladies who attend their church and are 18 years and above.
It is an annual event carried out by the church, and at the end of the exercise, a Certificate of Virginity is awarded to the successful ones.
Also, a white mark of purity is placed on the forehead of the virgins.
Photos shared online show those who passed the test smiling and showing off their certificates.
The test is usually conducted in the middle of every year and the certificate issued becomes invalid by the middle of the following year when the next virginity test is conducted by the church.
The test for the 2022/2023 session was conducted this week and certificates were issued to the successful ladies.
The certificate was signed by the Leader of Nazareth Baptist Church and the specialist who carried out the test.
