Six years ago: Scientology leader David Miscavige visits South Africa

Six years ago the Church of Scientology of Johannesburg opened the doors of its new headquarters in Kensington, the hub of Scientology activity in South Africa. More then 1,400 well-wishers and guests — government and religious leaders, human rights champions, celebrities and professionals, church members and friends — came from all over Africa and from many countries to celebrate the landmark dedication.

The event was capped by the appearance of the senior Scientology executive Mr. David Miscavige, Chairman of Religious Technology Center, custodian of the religious scriptures of Scientology.

Mr. David Miscavige's presence to dedicate and open this new church was significant, both for him, personally, as a first-time visitor to the country, as well as for the parishioners of the 45-year-old Johannesburg Scientology church. "It is my honor to address you, to walk in a land where L. Ron Hubbard laid so many milestones, and on this, your milestone day," he stated.
