- Pastor Mboro claims God told him it will rain like never before in Cape Town from April
- Angus Buchan claims God is angry with Capetonians and says the city needs to pray for forgiveness
- Day-Zero is currently projected to happen on 4 June 2018
The ongoing drought in the Western Cape and in particular Cape Town has been thrust into the national and even international news headlines.
People from across the country (and in some cases the rest of the world) have joined Capetonians in praying for divine intervention. The faithful have been praying for God to send early and sufficient winter rain to the city.
Local pastors and prophets have jointed the conversation and have predictably made some pretty controversial claims.
Briefly.co.za discovered that two of South Africa’s best-known pastors/men of God/prophets have seemingly received mixed messages from God.
Incredible Happenings Minister, Pastor Mboro said he had prayed for rain and God told him that Cape Town would receive rain like never before. Pastor Mboro said the spirit of God compelled him to visit the city.
While in Cape Town Pastor Mboro met with God (in spirit, not person) and God told him that the drought would be at an end by 8 April 2018.
Meanwhile, evangelist leader Angus Buchan said God was angry with the people of Cape Town for their various social ills. These ills include woman and child abuse, gangs and general lawlessness.
Buchan said if Capetonians wanted to save their city they had to repent and pray for forgiveness. He said the rain would come once people prayed for forgiveness. Buchan has organised a mass-prayer service in Mitchells Plain on 24 March.
He said all the people of the Western Cape and Cape Town should attend the event.
Capetonians are currently only allowed to use 50 litres of municipal water per person per day, the draconian measures have thus far helped to push back Day-Zero from April to June.
