|Man claims to be Jesus|
A 48-year-old man claims to be Jesus and that he came back to save the world.
Phetole Selepe, from Dan village, South Africa, claims he is Jesus Christ and was sent by his ancestors to save the world.
Selepe has been living on the banks of the Letaba River which is located in the Eastern Limpopo Province of South Africa, since 2004, where he performed his rituals.
Although he was arrested more than eight times, the local municipality was unable to evict him. He seems to be "untouchable," as he claims to be protected by a large water snake.
He thinks he can bring people back from the dead and that one day he will lead his people to Canaan and wash their sins. Selepe, who goes by many different identities, said he used one of his names, Molalatladi, to control the world.
"I was told to leave my family and come here to help the poor and those who are suffering," Selepe said. "I'm not allowed to be with a woman and I can only eat bread, fish and bananas,” he added.
