- A community in KwaZulu-Natal is up in arms following the antics of a local pastor
- The pastor, Mthobisi Khuzwayo, has been accused of giving school students beer in an attempt to 'heal' them
- Khuzwayo has also claimed to have the ability to turn beer into the blood of Jesus
Residents of KwaDukuza in KwaZulu-Natal are up in arms following the highly questionable actions of a local pastor.
The pastor, Mthobisi Khuzwayo, has engaged in some dubious activity, including giving alcohol to school pupils.
A video has emerged which shows how Khuzwayo offers alcohol as he claims it would ‘heal’ them.
The 25-year-old is also known as Apostle Anasinyego and is seen speaking in tongues in the controversial video.
Furthermore, Khuzwayo also claims to have the ability to transform beer into the blood of Jesus.
Sunday World reported on the story and that it’s believed Khuzwayo’s church and residence are based next door to a tavern.
Some locals have also stated that he claims to be the brother of Jesus.
Briefly.co.za tried to share the video footage but it seems the footage has been removed from social media.
Muzi Mahlabi, spokesperson for the KZN Education Department, has stated that the community should unite and take legal action against Khuzwayo.
Siboniso Michael, who is Khuzwayo’s best friend, came to his friend’s defence.
He said, "His high level in spiritually is making him do things that are meant to be in the future."
Edward Mafadza, Director-General of the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities (CRL commission), has slammed the pastor and his church.
"We condemn situations where learners are victims of such an act... it drags the whole religion into disrepute. We'll further investigate the matter.”
