- The founder of the controversial Gabola Church, Pope Tsietsi Makiti dropped another bombshell
- This time he announced he would be writing his own bible, with chapters named after the kasi locations of their different branches
- The religious leader said he hopes his holy book would decolonise black people
First Tsietsi Makiti founded a church out of a tavern, then he went on to be ordained as a pope, now the religious leader plans to write his own bible.
The Daily Sun reported Pope Tsietsi Makiti announced he would be writing his own bible, using the kasis where they have branches as the chapters' names.
Although the bible had not been seen, Makiti provided the news outlet with a few samples of the verses the holy book would incorporate.
According to the report, Evaton North chapter 1 verse 1 reads: “Leave every Gabola Church member to come to the first black African pope, equal to none, for the kingdom of God is for the ones like them. Now n forevermore, Hallelujah Amstel.”
Makiti has since the establishment of his church last year upgraded his title from bishop to pope. As Briefly.co.za reported previously, in April the Gabola founder was ordained as the ‘Pope of Africa’ in Evaton North.
However, although his church grew rapidly in only a few months, exceeding 15 000 members, the South African Union Council of Independent Churches said the church was a cult and disgrace to the Christian faith.
