The search is on for a dissapeared South African pastor who authorities accuse of "abusing" the faith of his congregants by having them eat live snakes and rats as a way of showing their trust in the Lord.
According to ECNA, self-styled prophet Penuel Mnguni of the End Times Disciples Ministries in Soshanguve is now wanted by South Africa's Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities after photos emerged online showing him feeding members of his congregation live snakes as a test of their faith.
The commission is probing abusive and exploitive religious practices and has been searching for Mnguni. The CLR, however, has had no luck in its search for him since the pastor does not have a home address and the tent that his ministry used to hold its services was burned down in August by a group that was angered by his unconventional worship style. more >>
