This follows a whirlwind of public reaction after Prophet Detective Lethebo Rabalago‚ 24‚ shared pictures of himself spraying congregants with the multi-insect killer during a prayer meeting in Mookgophong on his Facebook page.

Limpopo health MEC Dr Phophi Ramathuba last week said the department would approach the courts to get permission to have Rabalago taken in for psychiatric evaluation.

Ramathuba said this was not intended to insult Rabalago‚ but to ascertain whether or not his behaviour was influenced my mental illness.

In a previous interview with the Sowetan‚ Rabalago‚ a leader of the Mount Zion General Assembly‚ defended his practices.

He explained that he received a revelation from God. He said people who came with illnesses‚ including cancer and ulcers‚ had been healed after he prayed over the Doom.

Ramathuba‚ however‚ said the concern was that his actions were putting people in danger by exposing them to toxic substances.

She said authorities might have to go to court to have Rabalago declared as an involuntary patient before he can be observed at one of the local mental health facilities.

Ramathuba also called for those who had been sprayed with the product to avail themselves for medical check-ups‚ adding that some side-effects may not be detected immediately upon contact. She warned that skin irritation‚ tremors and other long-term conditions such as liver failure could occur if the people exposed do not seek immediate treatment.

On Monday‚ the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural Religious and Linguistic Communities released a statement condemning Rabalago’s actions.

Tiger Brands‚ the company that manufactures Doom also called for Rabalago to refrain from using the product on people. — Sowetan

  • Sometimes I wonder why people in authority wait for such a long time when people are on danger. When those people become sick and helpless due to that doom sprayed on their bodies it becomes state responsibility to look after them.

  • The congregants are the ones who need mental evaluation.

  • This is just unethical behaviour if the society wants to normalise these churches then a lot of things should be normalised too just for the sake of the bible people turn a blind eye on this horrible act it’s time to crimilise such acts and put these idiots behind bars before we are all doomed.

  • when asked y he sprayed people with doom..his response was “Jesus did many miracles n some of them are not recorded”DOom

  • S

    AT THE SAME TIME THINGS OF GOD LOOK LIKE FOOLISHNESS TO THOSE WHO PERISH. THE THINGS OF GOD SHOULD NEVER TAKEN SCIENTIFIC. ITS SPIRITUAL IF WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND. ADAM DID BAD WHEN HE REBELLED AGAINST GOD MAKING IT DIFFICULT FOR HIS CHILDREN FROM THEN TO UNDERSTAND THAT GOD CAN DO ANYTHING AND IN A SPIRITUAL WAY LIKE WALKING ON WATER AND EVEN WALKING IN THE AIR. DO KNOW THAT NYANGAS DO THINGS GREATER THAN THAT AND BECAUSE ITS NYANGAS WE AGREE.

  • Doomsday

    The one who wants to examine the prophet of doom needs to be examined first. I suspect he may have been doomed already.
