Nelson Thabo Modupe, of Lichtenburg, has argued that he prevented power cuts during the 2010 Soccer World Cup through his prayers.

He is a member of the Zion Christian Church.

In a letter to Eskom, he said the main reason for load-shedding was lightning and wind, and that he had taken it upon himself to pray to God and ask that no power cuts take place.

As a result, Eskom now owes him R250m, because he saved the power utility the burden and humiliation of load shedding.

Alternatively, Eskom can offer him a partnership in the company.

The claim has been placed on the court roll in the North West High Court for Thursday. - Sapa
