Christ Embassy & Campus Ministry damage Sound Equipment and are Avoiding Payment

On the 21 April 2017 we hired sound, stages, mikes ( i bought R10 000 worth of mikes just for the event) and lights for a church conference to Campus Ministry ( Campus Ministry falls under Christ Embassy and is the university ministry of at a huge discount - they only paid for one day the other 2 we gave free and did not charge transport. A Payment of R13000 was to be made on Friday but we only received R5000 Pastor Perlie signed responsibility for any damages as they were using there own sound engineers. It took until sunday to get the balance of the money after i threatened to remove the sound desk but only after I was assaulted when I was going to cut off the sound.

The sound system was burnt out damaging both speakers and amplifier. Normally in such a case we insist on replacement of items especially as this system had only been used twice before which would have been in the region of R20 000. To save them costs i had my supplier repair everything including replacing speakers at a cost of R6600. They also had to pay our sound engineers cost ( 5 trips plus he was there the whole of Sunday till 6:00) of R2500 - price also reduced because he is a Christian.

We were told damages would be sorted out and i got quotes and eventually i paid for the repair of the speakers as they were needed for an event on the 6 May. We have made numerous calls to Pastor Alfred more than 10. He has not replied to one. Pastor Perlie has made promises to sort it out and i was promised that everything was sorted out and that payment would be made on the 25 May 2017. It is now the 29 May 2017 and my phone calls to Pastor Perlie and Pastor Alfred have not been answered. They have not even had the decency to respond to my calls

It is now 53 days since the incident and we are still waiting to be reimbursed.
