A pastor has been killed after he was eaten by three crocodiles while trying to walk on water.

A pastor was eaten by a crocodile in Zimbabwe

Jonathan Mthethwa was trying to show his congregation how Jesus walked on water by crossing what is locally known as Crocodile River on foot.

However, he did not make it across the river in Zimbabwe.

The pastor, from the Satin of the Last Days church, managed to get around 90ft into the river before trying to climb onto the surface of the river.

All that was left of him was his underwear and his sandals.

Eyewitness Deacon Nkosi told the Daily Post: ‘The pastor taught us about faith on Sunday last week.

‘He promised he would demonstrate his faith to us today, but he unfortunately ended up drowning and getting eaten by three large crocodiles in front of us.

‘We still don’t understand how this happened because he fasted and prayed the whole week. They finished him in a couple of minutes.

‘All that was left of him when they finished eating him is a pair of sandals and his underwear floating above the water.’

  • These fake pastors, think they have super natural powers……he got what he wanted. Sad, but I’m just being honest. That’s what happens, when you want to prove the impossible, why endanger yourself like that, let alone it’s a river/lake, infested with crocs, ready to devour any prey they can readily attack. Even if he had to walk on waters, without any crocs available, the possiblity would be that; he would drown, get swept away by the the waters, or maybe get assisted by his congregats, if they’re brave enough to assist such a nonsensical incident….knowing how naive, brainwashed, desperate people are with these numerous fake pastors, that are just emerging out from the blue. End of times, for sure. I’m not surprised. My foot!!! ….SMH🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄

    A pastor in Zimbabwe has been eaten alive by crocodiles after he attempted to show his congregation he could walk on water.

    Jonathan Mthethwa of the Saint of the Last Days church, in White River Mpumalanga, died after walking 30 metres into a crocodile infested river, the Daily Post reports.

    The pastor walked into the river, known locally as Crocodile River, and attempted to ascend above the water before walking across it, according to Zimbabwe Today.

    He was attacked by three crocodiles and drowned, in front of his congregation.

    “They finished him in a couple of minutes,” Deacon Nkosi told the newspaper. “All that was left of him when the finished eating him was a pair of sandals and his underwear floating above the water.”

    He later told the Herald Zimbabwe the pastor had intended to “demonstrate his faith” on the day he died. “We still don’t understand how this happened because he fasted and prayed the whole week,” he was quoted as saying by the Daily Post.

    Emergency services arrived at the scene 30 minutes after the incident but Mr Mthethwa had already been declared dead by locals.
