TheSouthernDaily.co.za reports Alec Ndiwane, who calls himself ‘a prophet’, made a brave initial charge until the lions called his bluff and charged back. That’s when the fun started.
The Zionist from Pretoria Soshanguve was with fellow church members in South Africa’s largest national park watching animals when he apparently went into a trance and started to speak in tongues. Close to his car was a lion pride busy eating their starters, an impala.
Thinking he must be something of the likes of Samson, he opened his car door and went charging towards the lions. The lions thought this was the main meal being served and came charging right back.
Onlookers say it appears it did not take long for Ndiwane to come to his senses. He mad a quick u-turn and tried to make his way back to the safety of his car. On hungry lion managed to clip him with his claws on his buttocks, sending Ndiwane to the ground in pain.
This is when an game rangers intervened by starting to shoot of a couple of rounds before the lion could finish dishing up dinner.
Ndiwane was rushed to a nearby hospital for emergency surgery and had to spend a night in hospital with most of his backside in tact.
Ndiwane says he has no idea what really came over him. “I thought the Lord wanted to use me to show his power over animals. Is it not we who were given dominion over all creatures of the earth?” Alec asked after the incident.
