A prophet in South Africa who attempted to charge at a Lion to prove the Lord’s power over animals found out the animals don’t really care about that – after he had his buttocks mauled.
Alec Ndiwane, a Zion Christian Church prophet, reportedly charged at a pride of lions feeding in South Africa’s Kruger National Park whilst they were feeding.
His purpose – to show the ‘Lord’s power over animals’.
Ndiwane, in the company of some church members, was speaking in tongues and seemingly in a trance before charging at the animals.
Unluckily for him, one Lion started boring down on him, at which point he panicked and started running. He was easily caught by the Lion, who chomped down on his a$$.
Luckily for him, a game ranger fired a warning shot, which startled the Lion, who left him and fled.
He was rushed to hospital where he received treatment for his wounds, MailOnline reports.
“I do not know what came over me. I thought the Lord wanted to use me to show his power over animals.” Ndiwane reportedly said after his discharge.
“Is it not we were given dominion over all creatures of the earth?” he wondered.
However, when contacted, a spokesperson for the Kruger National Park told the British tabloid that they are unaware of any such incident happening.
