JOHANNESBURG - The Film and Publication Board has classified a YouTube video uploaded by Rabboni Centre Ministries showing young children being coerced into drinking petrol.

Pastor Lesego Daniel apparently recently told a congregation in Ga-Rankuwa to drink petrol saying it had a sweet taste to it.

The video has since sparked outrage.

The board's Sipho Risiba says the recording of children drinking petrol has now been classified with a 13 age restriction.

"Once a decision has been made the distributor and those in charge have the responsibility to remove that classified clip."
