Chaos erupted at the infamous End Times Disciples Ministries church when a mob destroyed the church’s tent and set it on fire.

According to South African media, members of the Julius Malema-led Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party joined up with Soshanguve residents of Pretoria to burn down the church belonging to Penuel Mnguni.

He recently made the news in South Africa for making congregants eat grass.


The EFF brigade had vowed to make Penuel Mnguni eat rodents and snakes like he did to his congregation. Luckily for him, he wasn’t at the church for Sunday’s service.

Rather an unidentified second-in-command of the pastor took over the service, which had spilled onto the street, and commanded members to eat leaves.


Mnguni’s absence did not stop the EFF from wreaking havoc on the premises. They tore down the churches tent before setting it alight and forced the congregation to disperse.
