JOHANNESBURG - The mother of a three-year-old child who died at Pastor Paseka 'Mboro' Motsoeneng's church has attempted suicide.
Nontombi Gwam was hospitalised after taking poison on Tuesday night.
It is suspected that Gwam's inability to pay for her child's funeral drove her to attempt suicide.
Her three-year-old daughter died on Christmas Eve at Mboro's church.
Gwam claimed she was turned away from a clinic when she went there for help.
She said paramedics refused to help her child, who later died at the church.
Paramedics and nursing union, Denosa have rejected the claims.
