Nyaope Addicts Flock To Snake Pastor’s Church


Last week, the leader of the Rabboni Centre Ministries in Tshwane was seen with a plastic snake in church that he used to “heal” people. But at the weekend something more interesting happened at his church. People saw scores of nyaope addicts flocking to his church.

They all pleaded with the “grass pastor” to pray for them to get rid of their addiction.

Some of the addicts confessed in front of the congregation while others sang and danced.

The church said it travelled all over Tshwane in buses picking up nyaope addicts who wanted God to change their lives.

On its Facebook page, the church said: “Our communities have been badly affected by substance abuse and addiction. We have seen how

future leaders are robbed of their dreams as this pandemic continue to destroy young people’s lives.

“This has led to many of our youth dropping out of school, running away from home and staying on the streets and dangerous hideouts to feed their addiction.”

The church said it would also go to other areas in Tshwane to pick up more addicts.

“The programme is fully running and sponsored by the ministry.

“We have volunteers evangelising and campaigning around Tshwane and surrounding areas and also through radio stations, home visits and shopping malls.

“We provide free buses around Tshwane townships including Mamelodi, Soshanguve, Mabopane, Ga-Rankuwa and other areas such as Bapong, Brits, Motloung, Mmakau, Makapanstad and Hammanskraal,” it said.
