In what has become a common occurrence in African news media, a pastor of the Lethebo MZGA Church has made the news for unorthodox practices in his church.
It is understood that the pastor makes use of every and any physical objects to assault demons out of his congregation, curing them of their various ailments.
When questioned on the reasoning of the pastors ‘healing process’, many congregants leaped to their pastors defense, pointing out that ‘God’ works in mysterious ways.
“God has given pastor a gift of healing and deliverance, and it is not our place to ask why it is done the way it is done. It’s up to us to accept the ways of the Lord, however unusual they seem,” said one Ms Linette Sibindi.
This practice came to the attention of the Daily Times when a congregant of the said church, posted images of the ‘healing’ process on social media site, Facebook, Wednesday morning.
In the image, the pastor is seen sitting on top of a very large sub-hoofer speaker that has been placed atop of a woman said to be experiencing mid-term pregnancy complications.
Contacted for comment on the criminal nature of his process, Pastor [Prophet] Lethebo referred this news reporter to his P.A who intern stated that they had no comment at this time.
These increasing occurrences of religious rituals is a concern to the SAPS and have approached the NPA with the hope of finding legal standing to stop the practices that have taken South African society by storm.
