You shouldn’t laugh really but you simply couldn’t make this up. A Pastor from Zimbabwe has been killed whilst showing his congregation how Jesus walked on water.
Jonathan Mthethwa from Satin of the Last Days church was attempting to cross a river known locally as (wait for it) ‘Crocodile River’, when he was grabbed by at least three crocodiles just as he attempted the walk. He did manage to get about 90ft across the river by wading though…
Eyewitness Deacon Nkosi said: ‘The pastor taught us about faith on Sunday last week.’
‘He promised he would demonstrate his faith to us today, but he unfortunately ended up drowning and getting eaten by three large crocodiles in front of us.’
‘We still don’t understand how this happened because he fasted and prayed the whole week. They finished him in a couple of minutes.’
‘All that was left of him when they finished eating him is a pair of sandals and his underwear floating above the water.’
The country’s emergency agency, ER24 responded to the scene 30 minutes after, but upon arrival, there was not much they could do as the pastor was already dead.
