Prophet Defends Spraying Church Members With Insecticide
A prophet in South Africa has defended his bizarre action.
Apparently, he was captured on camera spraying his church member with
insecticide after he claimed it can heal them of their diseases.
“Some people came with
injuries but we sprayed them and they were healed,” Pastor Rabalago,
24, told the Times Live website. “No one inspired me. I just believe in
God for Rabalagolago.”
Even though, he has been dubbed the “Prophet of Doom” , he said he
was “glorifying God” by spraying his congregation at the Mount Zion
General Assembly (MZGA) church.
“Everything here on Earth belongs to God. Petrol belongs to God. Doom belongs to God,” he said.
Meanwhile, the manufactures the well-known household spray, issued a
statement calling on Rabalago to halt his ritual healing, calling it
“alarming and extremely concerning”.
“(We) want to make it very clear that it is unsafe to spray Doom Super Multi-Insect Killer… into people’s faces,” it said.
“The packaging has very clear instruction and health warnings for humans which must be adhered to.”
Brand Tigers added that anyone affected should wash their hands and face, avoid inhaling and seek medical attention.
However, photos from the MZGA showed several women, with their eyes tightly closed, being sprayed in the face by Rabalago.
The pastor said no one was injured, but declined to say how many devotees attend his church or how many were healed.
