A video of a pastor sitting on a woman’s behind during an apparent exorcism has left South Africans on social media stunned. In the video, a number of people are heard playing instruments inside a house. The pastor gyrated to the music in a seemingly out-of-control way. He also yelled unintelligible words while sitting on the woman’s behind. At various points, he bizarrely rolled over the motionless woman who was lying on the floor facing down.

Most Africans are confused!! “Christianity” is disrespected and welcomed with pure ridicule, whereas tradition “our” African tradition is feared, well respected and practiced in private as it should. This simply shows that we need to rethink our roots!
