After his comments on the state of Israel made the headlines earlier this year, Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng has caused a frenzy on social media after he rebuked the Covid-19 if it is “meant to corrupt” people’s DNA.
Addressing staff at Tembisa Provincial Tertiary Hospital on Thursday, Mogoeng closed off with a passionate prayer for the frontline workers and country amid the Covid-19 second wave.
“Whatever phase is said to be coming, Lord I judge it, I run it down I the name of Jesus. I lock out every demon of Covid-19. I lock out any vaccine that is not of you.
“If there be any vaccine that is of the devil, meant to infuse 666 in the lives of people, meant to corrupt their DNA any such vaccine, Lord God Almighty, let it be destroyed by fire,” he said.

The Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng is a religious fanatic .
About a year left of his term and we won’t have to listen to his conspiracies and his Israel apologist rhetoric any longer.
