Penuel Mnguni, 24, the leader of the End Times Disciples Ministries church in Soshanguve, north of Pretoria, made some of the church members to open their mouths to eat raw a snake.
According to NewsacrossAfrica.com, the man of God told his congregation that he had “the authority to change everything into anything and it will obey because of our authority”.
Earlier this year, he ordered his members to take off their clothes after which he sat on them, praying.
He then jumped on a female congregant he was praying for while the rest of the congregation sang and danced in celebration.
Mnguni at one point, made his congregants eat a weave off a female church member’s head because, as he said, the weave had turned into nutritious food that would do no harm to their health.
He is following the footsteps of Rabboni Ministries’ leader Prophet Lesego Daniel, who made headlines a few years ago for making his congregation eat grass.
Pastor Daniel, last year, made churchgoers drink petrol because, as he persuaded them, this would turn into Fanta Pineapple flavoured drink.
“At the moment everyone is curious about how I do all the work I do; all I can say is that they would have to see it for themselves if they come here on Sundays,” Mnguni told the Pretoria News.
“I’m not afraid of what people do or say about me because that is all expected. All I am doing is what God has called on me to do. I know God will protect me if need be.”
Meanwhile, believers are seen in his ramshackle church lying on the floor, stripping naked and the pastor stepping on them as he “prays for their poor souls to go to heaven”.
