Alec Ndiwane, a self-proclaimed prophet with the Zion Christian Church, believing that “the Lord wanted to use me to show his power over animals,” attempted to challenge a pride of lions. The Holy Spirit failed to intervene, however, and Ndiwane sustained “major damage to his toilet sitting tool,” according to GhanaWeb.
The battle between man and beast took place at Kruger National Park in South Africa.
It is believed the prophet went into a trance and started to speak in tongues. Ahead of them was a lion pride busy eating their impala. Alec must have thought he was the biblical Samson as the prophet opened the car door and went charging towards the lions.
Upon seeing the man running towards them, the lions could not believe that manna was coming straight from heaven and instead ran towards the prophet. Alec must have then come to his senses as he quickly realised this was not going to end well and made an immediate turn and ran back to safety.
But before he could safely reach the confines of the car, one lion had snapped its paws on him thus causing major damage to his toilet sitting tool. Also thanks to the game ranger who was near who fired some shots with his gun to scare the lion away.
Ndiwane underwent emergency surgery, and doctors succeeded in saving his left buttock.
“I do not know what came over me,” Ndiwane later confessed.
