A South African pastor, Penuel Mnguni has allegedly fed two brothers in his congregation cockroaches, claiming that the insects have turned into cheese and spices.

The church where Mnguni is pastor put up a Facebook post about the cockroach-eating incident earlier this month, saying that he “called a cockroach to appear” before an audience in church.

Mnguni has a history of eccentric claims, five months ago he appeared at a service hosted by popular Nigerian televangelist TB Joshua, and confessed, according to Mr Joshua, “feeding snakes to the people is not biblical”.

“He then called out the congregation to come forward and eat […] Two brothers came and shared it with each other, as they were eating it by the surprise to Mr Charles it tasted like a cheese that is not ordinary and to Mr Eric it tasted like spice,” the church’s post said.

“The man of God declared that as they ate their level of teaching will grow and it will never be the same. As he spoke this words the power of God touched them both greatly as they partook what is from the father,” the post added.
The End Times Disciples Ministries posted these images of the event:

In another post, the church reported that the pastor prayed on a poisonous flower, and a worshipper ate it and “enjoyed it to the extent that he asked to eat the whole flower alone and finished it”.

“The Prophet of God declared that whatever he came for, God has granted him,” the post went on to say.
