South African Zion Christian Church ‘prophet’ Alec Ndiwane is recovering from what the Southern Daily genteelly describes as ‘a severely injured toilet sitting tool’ – his arse.
Pretoria-based Ndiwane was recently visiting the Kruger National Park with a bunch of church members when he reportedly charged at a pride of lions to prove the “power of the holy spirit”.
It is believed the prophet went into a trance and started to speak in tongues. Ahead of the church party was a lion pride eating an impala. The preacher opened his car door and went charging towards the animals.
When he saw the lions returning his charge, he panicked and ran back towards his car. But before he could reach it one of the lions lashed out with a paw and clawed his buttocks. The lion was then scared off by a game ranger who fired a gun.
Reported Southern Daily:
So severe was the lion paw injury that Alec had to be rushed to hospital for emergency surgery. The man was fearing he would lose his bum but the doctor’s assured him he would still have his left bum intact.
Later Ndiwane said:
I do not know what came over me. I thought the Lord wanted to use me to show his power over animals. Were we not were given dominion over all creatures of the earth?
