- A church leader believed to be from Mancoba Seven Angels Ministries Church has denounced the Constitution and education as tools of the devil
- The cleric says he is not a pastor, but an angel sent from heaven to search for Lucifer
- The church leader is believed to be Banele Mancoba
A church leader believed to be Banele Mancoba from the Seven Angels Ministries Church has denounced the South African Constitution and education system as tools of the devil.
Mancoba went one step further when he told the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of Cultural‚ Religious‚ and Linguistic Rights (CRL) that he was an angel sent from heaven.
"As we're here... the seven of us, we're angels from heaven... I'm not a pastor, I am an angel from heaven sitting at the right-hand side of the father,” he said.
Briefly.co.za discovered that Mancoba said he and the other six angels had been sent by God to find another angel who had fled heaven, he said that angel’s name is Lucifer.
Mancoba claims that the Constitution and education system has been influenced by Lucifer and that is why his church denounces them. "We're saying children shouldn't go to school because Satan has infiltrated our schools. We're also saying people mustn't follow the Constitution because it's driven by Satan. I take it as the devil's spirit.
He shockingly claimed that Lucifer was able to achieve this by receiving permission from Nelson Mandela.
The Mancoba Church has come under the spotlight after allegations surfaced that the church was used as a hideout for suspects involved in the Ngcobo police station massacre.
