A self-styled prophet who caused controversy in South Africa in 2015 after being accused of making people eat snakes, rats and hair has appeared at a service hosted by popular Nigerian televangelist TB Joshua in Lagos.
Mr Joshua has tweeted about Pastor Penuel Mnguni’s attendance:
South Africa’s Citizen newspaper quoted Mr Mnguni as saying that he had a change of heart after finding himself at the centre of international headlines – and being arrested and released:
Mr Mnguni said he started watching Emmanuel TV, listening to prophet TB Joshua and came to realise that what he was doing was not scriptural.
Charges against Mr Mnguni, laid by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, were provisionally withdrawn in July 2015 because of a lack of evidence.
