Onlookers cheer as two 'street' pastors fight in Kumasi

Angered by the overtaking, the second pastor who was late to work could not fathom why his brother in Christ would “steal” his shine, according to GHOne news anchor, Serwaa Amihere, who posted the video on her Twitter timeline.

While the two men were exchanging words, the market women and other onlookers could be heard urging them to fight. Eventually, the two self-styled evangelists squared-off.

"They were just passionate about how they will make money for daily bread," a Twitter user commented about the video.

Another also wrote: "Certainly they ain't there to preach the word, it's a business venture, why would you fight if you were the there to propagate the word. There is this man at circle who never say anything, all he says is 'yi 1 cidi fa da awuradi ase' nothing else as if it were recorded."

"These r not Pastors. They r business men extorting money from our “poor” mother’s wif fake professes," another said about the video.

Street and trotro preaching is a common phenomenon in Ghana's capital, Accra and the capital of Ashanti Region, Kumasi.

Many preachers often pitch camp close to markets in the two cities after which they take offerings.
