- A video has revealed the emergence of a new charismatic pastor who is seemingly of Chinese descent
- In the video, he can be seen mesmerising his congregation while he calls for hefty donations
- South Africans expressed their concern and disdain as the pastor urged his followers to donate in excess of R800
Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and Alph Lukau have come under fire for their controversial actions at their places of worship.
Although both men enjoy a huge following in Mzansi, many South Africans have called for them to be ousted due to the strong allegations levelled against them.
As the controversy linked to them has seemingly died down, a new kid on the block may have emerged.
Video footage revealed that a new pastor of Chinese descent has reportedly emerged and is wooing his followers into giving hefty donations at church.
In the video, the Chinese pastor displays a charismatic leadership style and sings along with his choir.
He then urges congregants to come forward to donate amounts of 50 euros, which equates to approximately R820.
There seems to be a reluctance for anyone to come forward and the man then mercifully reduces the asking rate to 20 euros.
Eventually some congregants step forward with the cash and he proceeds to 'bless' them.
Briefly.co.za previously reported on the Johannesburg Metro Police Department clampdown on the religious sector as it closed down 16 illegal churches.
It's little wonder that South Africans expressed concerns after the video was shared via Twitter by @AdvBarryRoux on Thursday.
KATLEGO M⚪ (@Matt___007) touched on a possible motive as he said:
"There is big money in that industry. Pakistanis will follow."
IamMissT (@thembitbaloyi) feared the worst with her response:
"Hebannn we are finished."
Bujospondo (@Bujospondo) commented:
"I bet his church is made in China. I can't, I won't, I refuse, I don't, etc."
