Wonders shall never end, African Pastors have really been grabbing headlines of late, albeit for the negative/controversial reasons. From Pastors who sodomise followers, rape congregants, some who claim to bring back to life the dead and foresee the future, others have drowned while trying to walk on water like Jesus, others have been training karate so as to beat up wayward church members, we have noted all the stories. Now, despite growing outrage over a popular “miracle” working South African pastor who convinced members of his church to eat grass, members who have followed his command say the grass has given them strength and healing.
“Yes, we eat grass and we’re proud of it because it demonstrates that, with God’s power, we can do anything,” said 21-year-old law student Rosemary Phetha and member of Pastor Lesego Daniel’s Rabboni Centre Ministries in South Africa in a Times Live report.
Phetha said for more than a year she struggled with a sore throat that only healed after Daniel “turned me into a sheep and instructed me to eat grass.” Its Amazing how an aspiring lawyer can be so gullible in the face of such seemingly ridiculous dogma. Well we guess there is a pretty good reason for it.
Another member, 27-year-old Doreen Kgatle, who suffered a stroke two years ago that left her unable to walk said the grass made her walk again. “I could not walk but soon after eating the grass, as the pastor had ordered, I started gaining strength and an hour later I could walk again,” said Kgatle.

Pastor Daniel, dubbed the “miracle man,” has been attracting people from all over South Africa to his 1,000-member church by unleashing spellbind acts like commanding people to sleep and awake at will. “Sleep,” he reportedly screamed at six people in his church who quickly fell asleep. He then told other congregants to slap and trample the bodies of the sleeping members to prove the depth of their slumber.
He then simply told them “wake up” and their eyes opened again.
“You can leave them like this for six months. I love this, I don’t want to be bored,” he boasted. “You can even make police go to sleep when they come to arrest you,” he added.
