[WATCH] I am not a pastor, I am an angel from heaven: Mancoba church leader

A video has emerged showing the leader of the Mancoba Seven Angels Ministry testifying in a CRL Rights Commission back in 2016.

In it, Banele Mancoba can be heard telling the commission that he and his brothers, who are also members of the controversial church, are not pastors but angels.

He also claims they have come to earth to look for Lucifer.

Last week the church was declared a 'cult' by the then Minister of Police Fikile Mbalula.

The church is being linked to the deadly attack on Ngcobo police station, in which five policemen and a former soldier were shot dead.

At the weekend, three of the Mancoba brothers were killed during a shootout with police.
