Pretoria – Retired Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng says he is called upon to be president. He may not know when or how, but he believes it is a prophecy.
Mogoeng said this after his speech at a gala dinner hosted by the Southern African Institute of Government Auditors in Pretoria on Thursday.
The ordained pastor who serves in several church structures said he knows that he is called to the presidency.
“I know I’m called to be president, but I don’t know when or how,” said Mogoeng.

According to TimesLive, Mogoeng said he is unsure of how it will happen, so he will wait on word from the Lord.
“It’s a calling upon my life. I don’t know how it is going to materialise. My response is to pray, which is why I’ve been telling people I’ll wait for the Lord to speak to me. If He says He has cancelled, I’ll be happy to enjoy my pension,” he said.
Mogoeng also said that he is not associated with any political structure and that the public will hear from him, should he decide to run for president. He said it’s not something to decide, but it is something to pray about.
The retired judge highlighted that as things stand at this moment in the country, running for president is an earnest task.
“I believe running for president is not something you want to do. It’s a serious responsibility, with an economy like this, with the governance systems in the manner they are at national, provincial and local level,” he said.
Despite his belief that being president could prove a formidable duty, Mogoeng is not ignoring the signs associated with the “prophecy”.
“So many prophecies, even today at the hotel where I was, one lady was crying tears saying, ‘Sir, I had a dream of you as president’. You don’t know how many messages I receive in one month, even from New York, saying we saw you being sworn in as president,” said Mogoeng.
According to News24, Mogoeng made an appearance in an online video earlier in the year where it seemed he was being endorsed by the African Alliance Movement – an unregistered political party.
However, his role in the video is silent as he does not utter a word. In spite of this, he is mentioned as a possible member of the party.
