A man claiming to be Jesus, the Son of God, is currently touring South Africa, according to photos and videos shared by locals across social media.
One user recounted that a Kenyan pastor found “Jesus” walking on the streets of Kenya and invited him to a church.
A Kenyan pastor claims he has found Jesus Christ walking on the streets of Kenya. Took the whiteman to his church, gave him a warm welcome and now his church followers are happy that Jesus has finally come back!— Syńbâd™ 💯 🇺🇬 (@DeSaylor1) July 24, 2019
And lucky for them he landed in Kenya first. 🤦🏾♂️🧐🤫 pic.twitter.com/2iUJqIha1Q
Photos of the long-haired, bearded, white man speaking to an audience from a stage surfaced. He was wearing a white robe with a blue mantle, in line with the traditional depiction of Jesus in Western culture.
Videos have also surfaced of him dancing in the Kenyan town of Kitengel...
