 noun a set of beliefs or principles held and taught by a Church, political party, or other group. 

Middle English: from Old French, from Latin doctrina 'teaching, learning', from doctor 'teacher', from docere 'teach'.
Oxford Dictionary
Does a criminal gang have a doctrine? Of course they do! They are a group of men or women or men and women that live by a set of beliefs and principles held and taught by their authority structures or “ancestral” gang structures, meaning those gang members who have passed away, maybe long before the existence of present gang members.
Their doctrines and lifestyles are not godly, but evil, because they operate outside of the parameters and boundaries of normal society and it is definitely in rebellion against the teachings of Jesus Christ!They are bound by demonic laws and rituals that defines who and what they are in the confines of the gangster underworld and also as they operate within society. These laws differ considerably from normal human behaviour and social etiquette as expected by society and culture. When a gangster makes a covenant with his gang he is expected to move within the boundaries of traditional gang structures that have already been established to guide his actions. These doctrines and laws are occultic legislation that manipulates and controls the minds of its members. A military-style ranking system with different levels of authority and power will exercise harsh disciplinary measures within the local gang or violent retribution against rival gang groups. These actions and counter-actions have been designed to instill and maintain fear in the other party or parties!



Maybe our First People would still be able to speak the “click” language of our Khoi and San forefathers if we Coloureds did not learn the hybrid mixing demonically-induced prison language, the Salambom.

GOD confused the language of the people at the building of the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11) because of their idolatry and rebellion. Has GOD also played a part in confusing our language or is it the work of Satan? One of the original ideas in keeping the prison language in secrecy was to prevent the British, Dutch and Portuguese colonial rulers from understanding the language of Salambom. Today this deception runs much deeper where Coloured men will even deceive their own nation, men and women who do not understand when they Sabela with each other. Then I believe that it may very well not be GOD, but a strategic Satanic programming to spread the confusion over the Foundation Nation of South Africa. I remember a time in the past when I used to be friends with the Taiwanese before I was able to understand Mandarin I used to feel like an outcast when I was with them when we were in a conversation.   

As I have previously made reference in one of my articles this prison language is still spoken every day, all day, from sunup to sundown and from sundown to sunup. Every time when they Sabela, they knit and form spiritual gridlines that form a network that is spread all across the atmosphere above South Africa.  This language has become extremely popular outside the walls of prison, especially amongst the teenagers. Ex-prisoners don’t mind teaching the young ones the words, but they usually only share about 10% of their knowledge to “outsiders”, because they need to maintain the status quo of the gang doctrines.

I remember being hospitalized in 2009 and one night in the middle of the night a young man of about 16/17 years of age was brought in after suffering a mental breakdown as a result of using the drug methamphetamine, also known as crystal meth, or ‘tik’ or ‘straws’. Early one morning I heard this young man sing the words of the Salambom….now that was absolutely amazing, because it was the very first time that I heard someone sing the prison language and this was still a mere child!

It is my understanding that the apostle Paul teaches about praying in tongues and also praying with his understanding, meaning that everyone can understand and also being able to sing in the spirit in an unknown tongue. The Holy Spirit has graciously given me the gift to pray in tongues and also to prayerfully sing in tongues and I am certainly aware that this scripture below has been understood and interpreted differently over the years.

(1Co 14:14)  For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful.


(1Co 14:15)  What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.


It is my belief that we are able to prayerfully sing in the Spirit and with the spirit in an unknown tongue. If this young man in the hospital could sing in the spirit the words of the prison language and if this spirit does not connect him to GOD then which spirit is he singing with? I believe it is the same principality that first transferred the gift to develop, formulate, record, teach and speak this unknown satanic language. Men have become so skilled in the written form, Sterianos, and the verbal form, Sabela, language that it has almost become like their mother tongue!


A form of hybridization of communication brings confusion to some people who do not understand, but others have developed the skills to flow in it.


Gangster Language


(Jer 9:3)  Their tongues are bent like a bow to send out false words: they have become strong in the land, but not for good faith: they go on from evil to evil, and they have no knowledge of me, says the Lord.


He whose tongue is bent like a bow to send out false words is he who uses the language of “Salambom”, the language of the Number who “Sabella” all day in prison!

The first priority during a new member’s initiation/induction process is to train these new members the secret language (Sterianos) of the gangs which are not understood by the officials of the DCS. This secret language consists of an alphabet for writing purposes and a verbal language, which is known as Sabela. New recruits are only trained in regard to the verbal language (Sabela) which training can take up to 6 months. The alphabet for writing purposes is restricted to top management (Springs or Wolke and Twelve Points)1 (Services).

The Numbers 26, 27 and 28 have cunningly developed a secret language of communication that only they can understand. I believe that the blueprint to this secretive and rebellious language was handed over by a satanic prince. The unified use of this demonic language in prison gives power and authority to those in the Number system. Look at what GOD says about the power of people who speak with one language….

(Gen 11:5)  And the Lord came down to see the town and the tower which the children of men were building.

(Gen 11:6)  And the Lord said, See, they are all one people and have all one language; and this is only the start of what they may do: and now it will not be possible to keep them from any purpose of theirs.

(Gen 11:7)  Come, let us go down and take away the sense of their language, so that they will not be able to make themselves clear to one another.

(Gen 11:8)  So the Lord God sent them away into every part of the earth: and they gave up building their town.

(Gen 11:9)  So it was named Babel, because there the Lord took away the sense of all languages and from there the Lord sent them away over all the face of the earth.


GOD scattered the people and confused their language! The LORD gave us mysterious and wonderful secret diverse tongues as one of His nine spiritual gifts in 1 Corinthians 12.

This prison language is definitely not a spiritual gift from GOD, but a spiritual gift from Satan! From sunrise to sundown, from sundown to sunrise they utter their proclamations into the atmosphere. Every time when these men Sabela they form spiritual gridlines over the city’s atmosphere, which create hindrances in the spiritual realm against the prophetic anointing!




I believe that there are Pastors and Evangelists or other Ministry workers who feel that it is COOL to Sabela in the Pulpit. They believe that in order to save a Gangster you have to come down to the level of the Gangster. And one of the ways for believers to get down to the level of the gangster and to relate to the gangster is to speak his language…to Sabela the Prison Language with the gangster! They believe that to save a gangster you have to become like a gangster and unfortunately many ministry workers have misinterpreted the New Testament scripture of 1 Corinthians 9:19-22 below…

  (1Co 9:19)  For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.


(1Co 9:20)  And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;


(1Co 9:21)  To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law.


(1Co 9:22)  To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.


GOD has given each one of us adequate gifts and skills to relate and understand the nature of the gangster without compromise. This Prison Language is a Demonically-inspired language specifically developed in the spirit realm for gangsters; it was designed in such a way that non-gangsters should not be able to understand it. When you as a believer go down to the level of a gangster then the demon spirit of the gangster will deceive and divert you from your assignment so you have to be extremely careful and cautious!

Even I do not use Prison Language when I preach or when I engage gangsters on the streets or in Peace meetings. When Pastors do Sabela in the Pulpit they unwittingly release demonic structures over the Church…they open up spiritual doorways which results in the congregation being demonically oppressed!

To the weak you may become as weak, to those under the gangster law you may become as one under the law to save them, but you definitely do not have to abide by their doctrines and practices! The Language of Salambom is a Language of DECEPTION and SECRECY and the Church has absolutely no part or portion in it. It should not even be found in the believer’s vocabulary!


Pastors, Evangelists and any other Ministry workers if you do not agree with this article then please feel free to contact me so that we can sit down and consult the Holy Spirit further on this matter.

I give Honour and Praise to the name of Jesus Christ!
