African religious prophet gets his butt mauled by lions after trying to prove 'God's power over animals'
Alec Ndiwane was described as suffering ‘major damage to his toilet sitting tool’
Alec Ndiwane, who has been described as a “prophet” in African media, was on safari at the Kruger National Park in South Africa when he confronted the pride.
"Determined to prove to fellow tourists that God would save him, Ndiwane is said to have gone into a trance and started speaking in tongues before opening his car door and charging at the lions.
Just moments before reaching the pride, Ndiwane came to his senses and turned around, sprinting back towards the safety of his safari van," The Sun reported.
Well, too little too late. The lions decided to teach him a lesson, and proceeded to pounce on his behind as he scrambled back into the van.
“I do not know what came over me,” Ndiwane told GhanaWeb. “I thought the Lord wanted to use me to show his power over animals. Is it not we were given dominion over all creatures of the earth?” he added.
Alec was saved when a warden fired a gun shot into the air and scared off the big cats. (No lions were harmed in the incident.)
Ndiwane required stitches after suffering what was described as “major damage to his toilet sitting tool” but was discharged the following day.
Here at iizcat, we support anyone's religious freedoms. That being said, we think God or some higher power did leave this man a message: Respect the animals that share this earth with you, and you won't be bit in the butt... literally.
