Bible leads reverend back to stolen car
Johannesburg - A King William's Town reverend's Bible led him back to his stolen car, according to a report on Thursday.
Methodist reverend Fungile Buti's Mazda 323 was stolen while he was at a church meeting last week.
"One of the church members passing in a taxi called my cellphone to ask me why I was driving so fast. I told him it wasn't me. It was the thieves driving my car," Buti told the Daily Sun.
"I knew my car could go fast because I'd just taken it in for a full service."
The car was used to rob a spaza shop in Ngqamakhwe, about 180km from King William's Town, the 59-year-old reverend's home town in the Eastern Cape.
The police recovered the car after the spaza shop robbery and found the reverend's Bible, with his name, on the back seat, leading them to the rightful owner.
"The presence of my Bible helped me get my car back. It's the word of God," said Buti.
