In case the good news hasn’t hit you yet, Incredible Happenings Ministries founder and leader Prophet Mboro went through the pearly gates.

Or so he says, according to an article published on News SA.

The holy man’s spokesperson – Mr Nkuna – told local newspaper, the Katlehong Weekly, that Pastor Mboro was “captured” to heaven during an Easter Sunday service and took pictures on his Galaxy Smartphone and came back down later that same day

The pastor has been ridiculed after apparently saying he took a selfie in Heaven.

A spokesman for South African holyman Paseka Motsoeneng claimed he visited the man upstairs during Easter, according to the dailypost.

If you are eager to see the smartphone images it will apparently cost you 5,000 rand (£240), and you can arrange to purchase them through his Incredible Happenings Church.

But if you don’t fancy spending any money here is another mock up (one is already at the top).

People have been laying into ‘Prophet Mboro’ despite his followers claiming the whole thing was just a joke.

‘If the Americans can go to the Moon why can’t Pastor Mboro go to Heaven and take pics,’ wrote one Twitter user.

Another added: ‘Shout out to Pastor Mboro for being the 1st human to go to heaven and come back, Jesus couldn’t do it we still waiting for him!’

‘Prophet Mboro’ has yet to comment.
