A prophet, who reportedly preaches in Mpumalanga, has gone viral for all the wrong reasons. The religious leader was filmed saying he could cure the coronavirus.
He was heard saying:
"I want to pray for those people with corona, when I am done praying for them, they will take three to five days after that time, they will be healed. I have a solution to this coronavirus, I can cure it."
Twitter parody account Man's Not Barry Roux shared the video on the social media platform and captioned it:
"This is prophet Jacob from Mpumalanga, he’s misleading people that he can heal corona virus as he has the cure."
The video gathered over 22 000 views in just a couple of hours.
Take a look at the video below:
South Africans immediately roasted the prophet and many joked he should be given a chance to prove himself.
Twitter user, @DronationB, commented:
"This one must go heal his people back home wherever he comes from."
Another tweep, @AuntyTot, wrote:
"He deserves a chance, he must touch one or two patients."
