Pope Tsietsi Makiti, who has become popular in Mzansi for preaching at taverns, has supported a fellow religious leader.
Makiti showed support for Prophet Sonny Rakgorwana - who was photographed giving his congregation Savannah to drink during a sermon.
Briefly.co.za reported last week that photos of Rakgorwana "forcing" his church members to drink booze surfaced on social media.
Now, Makiti has publicly showed his support to the Savannah pastor. According to the self-proclaimed prophet, there was nothing wrong with using booze to get a congregation ready to accept God.
According to the Daily Sun, Makiti said Rakgorwana had his "blessing."
Makiti said: "Let us all drink and praise the Lord.”
The self-proclaimed pope has made headlines several times for using alcohol to teach tavern-goers the gospel.
