A self-styled prophet who caused controversy in South Africa in 2015 after being accused of making people eat snakes, rats and hair has appeared at a service hosted by popular Nigerian televangelist TB Joshua in Lagos.
Mr Joshua has tweeted about Pastor Penuel Mnguni’s attendance:
‘The Snake Pastor’ from South Africa is in The SCOAN confessing that feeding snakes to the people is not biblical. What’s your response?

South Africa’s Citizen newspaper quoted Mr Mnguni as sayingthat he had a change of heart after finding himself at the centre of international headlines – and being arrested and released:
I started watching Emmanuel TV, listening to prophet TB Joshua, I came to realise that what I was doing was not scriptural. I came to realise that it’s an attack. I came to TB Joshua to deliver me.”
Charges against Mr Mnguni, laid by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, were provisionally withdrawn in July 2015 because of a lack of evidence.
