A controversial prophet based in Jinja has drowned after attempting to walk on water. The incident happened along the shows of River Nile in front of hundreds of his followers.
This incident took place on Thursday afternoon. Referencing Matthew 14:22-33, Mahlangu said that he received a revelation which told him that with enough faith he could achieve what the Lord was able to. Sadly by the second step into the water, Mahlangu found himself completely submerged. He never returned.
It was not the first time the prophet had tried performing miracles. According to members of his congregation, he had once tried to transform peanut into peanut butter but failed miserably.
His staunch followers say he is not dead and he will resurrect from the water. He had been warned by the municipality but did not heed.
