A Free State farmer has claimed he built a pyramid on his farm on the orders of an extraterrestrial from a faraway place.
Piet Van Wyk says he erected the 7 meter  stone temple after being visited by a tall man calling himself Herulayka, who had honey-coloured eyes, white hair and from a planet called Nefilin 20 times the size of Earth.
He told a local paper the alien said he was from the constellation of Orion. He built the pyramid despite being warned he would be taken for a drunk or a drug addict if his story ever came out.
Mr Van Wyk, 33 when he claims the alien visited him in February, said: “He told me to build the temple in the form of a pyramid.
“When I asked him why it had to be in the form of a pyramid, he said it was because it should be like my faith, something that winds and storms couldn’t move and was always pointing upwards.”
Recalling the moment he asked his mysterious visitor his name, Mr Van Wyk told media that Herulayka had warned him: “Many people will laugh at you, defame you and say it was an act of insanity or something he did during a bender, it was an act of a madman or a drug addict.
“He told me he came from the constellation of Orion, from a place called Nefilin which is a place 20 times larger than Earth where people are similar to human beings.
“He was a tall man with honey-coloured eyes and white hair down to the ground. He was barefoot and wore a tunic tied with a rope.”
Mr Van Wyk, whose wife was less than a day away from giving birth to his daughter at the time, says he had seen the alien in dreams before their meeting in person.
He said the extraterrestrial had claimed humans were destroying their own planet and should wake up to the fact they must look after it like a child because it gave them what they needed for their own survival.
