There's a story making the rounds about a Zion Christian Church prophet by the name of Alec Ndiwane who supposedly charged a lion in South Africa's Kruger National Park. According to several news reports 'Prophet Alec Ndiwane' (who is based in the Pretoria Soshanguve) got out of the car during a visit to the park and charged the lions. They in turn attacked him and so park staff had to shoot in the air to chase the lions away. The poor prophet had to be hospitalized and underwent surgery but fortunately survived.
Initially we were skeptical about the veracity of the story since we first picked it up on Celebtricity, a site know for posting fake or made up news to generate social media traffic. Investigating the source of the photo they ran with the story seemed to confirm our suspicion: it was actually a photo of Kevin Richardson, also known as 'The Lion Whisperer'.
