Limpopo — People will surely be looking differently at their blikkie Doom after this.
A Limpopo pastor is allegedly spraying his flock with the “healing powers” of the insect repellent, to rid them of their troubles.
Photographs of the Doom-spraying at a church service over the weekend were shared on a Facebook account allegedly belonging to prophet Lethebo Rabalago of Polokwane and his Mount Zion General Assembly (MZGA) church.
Rabalgo told eNCA that he uses Doom insect killer to heal people with cancer, HIV or any other illness.
Seven photographs show the pastor wielding a Doom can and spraying it in the eyes and on the feet of people.
In a photograph posted on Sunday, a woman who gets a bek vol Doom by the pastor, has her ulcer “healed”.
The photo was captioned: “Mrs Mitala. The Prophet called sick people to come foward. She went to the forth and told the Prophet that she suffers from ulcer. The Prophet sprayed doom on her and she recived her healing and and deliverance. We give God the glory!” (sic)
In another post, MZGA said: “Doom is just a name but when you speak to it to become a healing product it does. People get healed and delivered through Doom. It’s not by might nor by power but by the Holy Spirit. We give God the glory!”
In August Rabalago reportedly placed a large speaker on top of a congregant to solve her problems. The speaker was intended to act as God’s hand.
Tiger Brands has joined the storm of outrage over a pastor who uses one of its products in his bizarre healing practices.
The company has warned that the actions of Prophet Lethebo Rabalago pose health risks for congregants and that he must stop using Doom to “heal” them.
The Commission for the Promotion and Protection of Cultural Religious and Linguistic Communities (CRL) this year probed the alleged abuse of people’s belief systems by pastors.
Some of these complaints include pastors feeding congregants grass petrol and snakes.
