MEC slams ‘petrol pastor’ Lesego Daniel

Johannesburg – Gauteng Infrastructure Development MEC Nandi Mayathula-Khoza on Sunday criticised a local pastor and Nigerian pastor TB Joshua, while warning of “harmful religious practices”.

Mayathula-Khoza, speaking at the Father Masango St John Apostolic Faith Mission Church in Soshanguve, west of Pretoria, prayed for the South Africans who died in a building collapse in Nigeria on September 12.

“We ask the creator to assist us to deal with the loss. We send our heartfelt condolences to their loved ones,” she said.

“But I don’t understand why the likes of TB Joshua should claim the sole ability to heal and prophesise ability to perform miracles.”

Some 115 people, among them 84 South Africans, were killed and dozens trapped when a multi-storey guesthouse attached to the Synagogue Church of All Nations, run by Joshua, collapsed in Lagos.

Some 350 South Africans were thought to be visiting the church when the accident happened.

Last week, French news agency Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported that rescue workers said the building collapse was likely due to the addition of extra floors to the three-storey building without reinforcing its foundations.

But Joshua, a charismatic pastor known to his followers as “The Prophet” or “The Man of God” and who claims to work miracles, suggested it was a deliberate sabotage against his ministry.

Building collapses are frequent in Nigeria because of lax regulations and substandard construction materials, AFP reported.

Mayathula-Khoza, speaking on behalf of the Gauteng Premier David Makhura, criticised a Pretoria-based pastor who reportedly made his congregation eat grass and drink petrol.

“If you go about feeding people grass and petrol, you must know that you are not a good shepherd. You are misleading the folk,” she said.

“Some amongst us seem to think that we can’t tell the healing power of faith and the medicinal value of faith from harmful religious practices.”

On September 24, it was reported that Rabboni Centre Ministries pastor Lesego Daniel told his Ga-Rankuwa congregation to drink petrol and said it tasted “sweet”.

In a video posted to YouTube, members of his congregation are seen drinking the petrol as Daniel preached.

Mayathula-Khoza said humans cannot digest grass because it required special enzymes, such as in herbivores, which humans do not have.

She said petrol should not be ingested and posed a danger for the breathing system and could result in breathing difficulty and aspiration pneumonia.

“Ingestion of fuel is corrosive and not only does it affect the intestinal territory, but also the nervous system,” she said.

“It causes excitement (a high), as though someone… took on drugs. That would explain the strange behaviour reactions after ingestion in the people who drink petrol.”

The MEC said petrol also posed a danger for the breathing system, resulting in difficulty breathing, aspiration pneumonia, among other symptoms. – Sapa

After South African Pastor Makes Church Members Eat Grass, He Now Forces Them to Drink Petrol

South African Pastor, Lesego Daniel, made his congregants drink petrol after claiming that it can miraculously turn into pineapple juice.

A controversial South African Pastor, Lesego Daniel, made his congregants drink petrol after claiming that it can miraculously turn into pineapple juice.

Daniel, leader at the Rabboni Centre Ministries near Pretoria, is the same pastor who drew international media attention earlier this year when he convinced his congregation to eat grass. Although his preaching methods are unconventional, many took his lead in hopes that the poisonous liquid would cause a miracle.

“Without faith, it is impossible to please God so I’m going to drink my petrol,” says an unidentified church member in a video posted on YouTube.

The video then shows Daniel going to the altar with a bottle full of the liquid before giving it to the man who then proves to the congregation that it is flammable by pouring some into a container and lighting a match.

“Many of you don’t believe that this is fuel but I just want you to believe,” he said. “If you look at the bottle, it looks like apple juice but with the flame that it will become, it will be enough evidence for you to have faith. In the book of Luke 1:37 it says nothing is impossible for God.”

Immediately after the demonstration, he drinks a portion of the bottle before Daniel asks him how it tastes, to which he responds while he’s coughing, “It has a lot of fumes but I don’t have any side effects.”

The video also shows about a dozen church members, who appear delirious, run to the altar to get a sip from the same bottle while others are fighting to grab a hold of it from Daniel’s hand.

Daniel said that the act was part of the Bible’s passage that says people will do greater miracles than Jesus did.

“Do you believe in the Father?” Daniel asked the congregation. “Can you imagine not being able to have a baby and you come here, drink petrol and tomorrow the doctor says, ‘no more barrenness, you are pregnant because you drank petrol.'”

He then proceeded to say that next time he brings a bottle of petrol, he will “command” people to go to the altar for a sip “whether you want to or not.”

Back in January, Daniel made his members eat grass after explaining in a sermon that Jesus had additional disciples besides the 12 noted in the scriptures who used to perform unconventional practices.

“There were many disciples and you don’t know others. Let God show you as they were deliberately not revealed in the Bible because God wanted someone to do new things,” Daniel told African Spotlight news outlet.

Pregnant woman slammed into ground by police, caught on camera

SUNSET PARK (WABC) —

Officers slammed a pregnant woman to the ground and another woman is shoved in a shocking video now under investigation by the NYPD.

The video is hard to watch.

It shows what happened during an arrest in Brooklyn over the weekend.

A witness posted it on Facebook and it’s gotten the attention of the police department’s Internal Affairs Division.

Residents she’s nearly six months pregnant.

The cell phone video starts with a young man sitting on the street in handcuffs surrounded by police.

His pregnant mother tries to intervene, “Don’t resist! Don’t resist. Throw your hands up.”

The woman who is nearly six months pregnant struggles with police, and as they tried to restrain her Saturday morning she hit the ground onto her stomach.

“Oh my God she’s pregnant,” you hear in the video.

A family friend also tried to step in, and an officer shoved her away.

“What we see is a woman who’s trying to protect her son, who is being stopped and frisked by police, and she became a victim. Slammed onto the floor,” said Dennis Flores, of El Grito de Sunset Park. “Her belly is now with black and blue bruises. She’s bleeding and she’s having complications.”

“It’s sad that my reaction is that I’m not shocked. It isn’t new in this neighborhood. But it’s still enraging, it’s saddening,” said Jason DeLaguila, a community organizer.

The local police watch group that released the video says the 17-year-old suspect was arrested last year for robbery.

This video comes less than a week after an officer from the same precinct was suspended for kicking a street vender.

Councilman Carlos Menchaca says he’s disappointed with the 72nd Precinct.

“This is the second video in a week. It’s disgusting. This needs to stop. I spoke with the chief and the captain. We have a systemic problem with this precinct. We need to solve it now,” Menchaca said.

The NYPD told Eyewitness News the Internal Affairs Bureau is investigating both cases.

The pregnant woman is expected to talk Wednesday.

Ohio Grand Jury Clears Police After They Shoot & Kill A Black Man With A Toy Gun In A Walmart!

Earlier today, an Ohio grand jury decided not to charge two police officers in the killing of John Crawford in a Walmart in August. Crawford, a black man, was holding a toy gun designed to look like an assault rifle. Now, surveillance video from the Walmart has been released to the public. Because there’s little sound, it makes it hard to tell when and how often the police shot Crawford. But the footage shows definitively that Crawford wasn’t brandishing the toy gun when he was shot — and that he dropped it, ran, and came back before he died. The video, which tracks Crawford as he made his way through the store doesn’t show any of the behavior described in the 911 call that sent cops to the scene. The 911 call, placed by a man named Ronald Ritchie (who is white), said that Crawford was “pointing it at pf his body is hidden from view).
