The controversial South-African pastor, Penuel Mnguni, who feeds his congregation with live snakes just got served. Pastor Mnguni, the Founder of the End Times Ministries, was known for employing strange practices like telling his congregation to eat grass, strip naked, swallow live snakes and bray like horses while carrying him around.
Reports by Daily Sun says that Pastor Mnguni had been lying low for sometime after a mob, led by South African vigilante group, the Economic Freedom Fighters, torched his church, resurfaced in the village trying to set up another church but the angry resident of Mmakaunyane Village, in the North Western part of the country, moved enmasse to his church, burnt it down and tied him up before beating him mercilessly.
The Church burnt down
Called the Snake Pastor, Mnguni thought he was set for a comeback in the village after he was chased away from his former church located in Soshanguve in Tshwane where he made residents angry. He was also criticised by the South African Council of Churches, but with his appearance, the community held a meeting and marched to the tent in the bushes and started attacking his congregation. The residents took the tent apart, threw all the chairs and Bibles on it and set it on fire!
After he made his comeback, Pastor Mnguni started operating in a school but was chased away by worried parents and decided to relocate to the village secretly and set up tents in the bushes. On hearing noises coming from the bush, residents went to investigate only to find the Snake Pastor who claimed he could walk on air and walked on his members under the guise of exorcising demons from them.
Residents bringing down the tents
On discovering it was Pastor Penuel, they discussed a plan and on Sunday, November 15, decided to destroy the tent, as well as everything inside.
It took the arrival of the police to rescue him after he was tied up and the harassed with his church member.
