Pretoria resident says he is the ‘anointed one’

Pretoria – An unusual urgent application served before the Gauteng High Court this week,in which a Lyttelton Manor resident, who said he is was known as the “anointed one” among Jehovah’s Witnesses, asked the court to officially swear him in as the worldwide leader of the organisation.

Ernest Gericke, in papers before the court, told Judge Bill Prinsloo that the “first business of the Christ is the legal establishment of the Kingdom of God on earth, known as the Jehovah’s Kingdom.”
