CLAIM: Pastor's cure

Pastor allegedly cures teen's blindness with a household detergent.

A woman has claimed that a pastor — and the healing power of bleach — has restored her nephew’s eyesight.

Thandi Mweri, 30, said she recently took 14-year-old Khaya Mavuso to a church in Kagiso, Mogale City, to see if his blindness can be cured.

She claims the pastor, Sipho Mphakathi, told them God had shown him Khaya and that the best medication for him was bleach.

According to the Daily Sun, Thandi said the pastor put bleach in the teen’s eyes, “and after three days my nephew started seeing light”.

Thandi said the boy “can now see and do things by himself”.

According to her, Mphakathi’s flock regularly drinks bleach, “which tastes like lemonade”, to help cleanse them of sins.

The pastor told the Sun no one should question God. He said: “Healing people is a calling and I help them through God’s power.”

He said his “spiritual father” was pastor Lesego Daniel who made headlines in 2014 for getting his congregation to eat grass and drink petrol.

The pastor quoted John 14: 12 to the paper, which says: “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done and even greater works because I am going to be with the Father.”
