A controversial South African pastor of the End Times Ministries in Soshanguve, Penuel Mnguni known as ‘Snake Pastor’ who confessed at Prophet T.B Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nation (SCOAN) of operating with some strange powers has come out to say that he did not make the confession in the right state of mind.
Mnguni who is known for asking his congregation to swallow snakes, told reporters as he got down to South Africa that he was happy to talk about his visit to T.B Joshua's church.
The “Snake Pastor” had visited the SCOAN and was seen in a video which showed on Emmanuel TV, saying “Pastor TB Joshua and I came to realise that what I was doing was not scriptural.”
Making a U-turn on his words after he arrived his country, he said, “I am being used by God and God sees no sin in what I do. TB Joshua tricked me, but I am still the snake pastor!”
Mnguni said he was forced to say what he said because he feared for his safety in Nigeria.
“I never knew that I was going to be forced to speak in front of people.
“Those people took my ID and passport and would not give them back until I did what they wanted me to do. I went there on an invite and I only wanted to take part in worshipping, not deliverance.”
He said they had pictures showing some of his past practices at church and he had to stand in front of them.
“It was as if everything was planned before I even got there. If you listen to the video I am not the one saying those words. There is a woman next to me who is forcefully telling me what to say.”
He said he felt as if his rights were being violated. “But I stood there hopelessly because I feared a lot of things.”
The snake pastor as a demonstration of the power of God had fed a member with a live rat, drove a car over his congregants, locked a Church member in a deep freeze for more than 30 minutes and more.
Pastor Penuel Mnguni’s Church is known to have thousands of followers and members who throng weekly to worship there.
This is coming just a few weeks after Pastor TB Joshua announced that he will be leaving Nigeria and relocating to South Africa
