Doom pastor: I am already arrested in Christ
'Prophet' Lethebo Rabalago, who uses Doom to 'cure' his congregants, says he is not afraid of being arrested.
JOHANNESBURG – A Limpopo pastor, who has caused outrage for using Doom insect killer to cure his congregants of illnesses, says he is not afraid of being arrested.
'Prophet' Lethebo Rabalago of the Mount Zion General Assembly Church says he’s been arrested in Christ and has no reason to be afraid of the police.
Rabalago is the latest so called pastor to shock people by using unconventional healing methods after pictures of him spraying his followers with insecticide went viral on social media.
Rabalago has defended his actions.
“No one gets hurt that’s the thing. We see testimonies day by day. I am already arrested in Christ so I don’t have to fear anything.”
Meanwhile, retailer Tiger Brands says it’s been unsuccessful in its attempts to reach the pastor.
It says Doom is manufactured for the sole purpose of killing specific insects and finds Rabalago's actions concerning.
Spokesperson Lauren Siebritz says, “We have been trying to get in contact with the person concerned. [We've been] unsuccessful as yet, but we will be trying again this morning to request that he please cease with such activities.”
Meanwhile the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities (CRL Rights Commission) says it cannot take action against the pastor until his followers complain.
