Pretoria based man of God, Prophet Alec Ndiwane is in critical condition after challenging a pride of lions to a duel in the Kruger National Park.
The pastor was with members of of his church in the park where they had gone sightseeing when he went into a trance and started to speak in tongues. Following the example of the Biblical Samson, he then opened the car door and charged a pride of lions who were busy eating their impala.
As the lions raced towards him, Ndiwane immediately came to his senses and began running toward the vehicle. Unfortunately, one lion snapped its paws on him causing serious damage to his buttocks before he could safely reach the confines of the car.
He was saved by a game ranger who fired shots into the air with his gun to scare the lions away. The injuries the prophet sustained was so severe that he had to be rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery.
Pastor “I don’t know what came over me,” Prophet Ndiwane confessed,”I thought the Lord wanted to use me to show His power over animals. Is it not we were given dominion over all creatures of the earth?” he asked.
