Pastor Bonakele Mancoba of Angel Ministries appeared before the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities. But the pastor left the commission with more questions than answers.

Daily Sun reported that he wasted no time in giving the commission a lecture on what is wrong with the country.

"I am God. We know these things," he said. "On Saturday we went to arrest Satan in hell. But we suspended the operation because people are not ready to go to heaven yet."

Last month the Angel Ministries Church made headlines when women and kids were rescued by Eastern Cape MEC for Social Development Nancy Sihlwayi.

The church had forced them to cut ties with the people outside the church. It also forced them to leave school and stop working.

"We aren't sending children to school because Satan has anointed the constitution and schools with evil spirits," said the pastor. "The constitution allows men to marry other men."

The brothers told the commission that they are angels from heaven sent by God to preach the word of God. They told the commission their late father Siphiwo Mancoba prevented them from going to school.

"I did grade R, two of my brothers left school in Grade 5. The young ones never went to school, but we can speak English very well," said the pastor. "We inherited the church from our late father in April last year."

He said the church was formed by their father in the 1980s.

"We get donations and we own many cars, but we can't say how many or where we get our donations. We use this money to feed our people in the church."

They do not bank the money.

"The bank is Satan's institution," he said.

Commissioner Thoko Mkhwanazi-Xaluva said: "While you are on earth, whether you are angels or not, you have to abide by the constitution. You are forced to register your church,"

She said if they receive any donations they are required to deposit them in a bank and the money must be audited.

"If you break the law we will arrest you or you have to go to another country," she said.
