After facing worldwide ridicule for claiming to have resurrected a man over the weekend, Pastor Alph Lukau of Alleluia Ministries International has made a shocking u-turn by publishing a statement on Facebook denying he resurrected anyone, instead blaming the man’s family for misinformation.
“At no stage did Pastor Alph claim that he had resurrected the person shown in the video, who was identified by his family as Elliot. From the video footage it is clearly stated that when the mortuary vehicle arrived at the Church premises there was already movement in the coffin.
“Prior to even praying for Elliot, Pastor Alph states that Elliot is in fact breathing. The facts surrounding Elliots death were presented to Pastor Alph by Elliot’s family (as seen in the video footage) and these were then reported as such,” the shock statement read on Facebook.
The church proceeds to say “during the service Pastor Alph clearly states that the extent of the miracle needs to be verified and that such verification should include interviewing Elliot’s doctor and everyone in the mortuary
A video of Lukau praying for Zimbabwean national Brighton (Elliot) Moyo who was in a coffin went viral over the past few days. Even the Facebook LIVE broadcast by the church was titled “A DEAD man came back to LIFE in this service. I speak a RESURRECTION miracle in your life.”
But after a series of worldwide memes and challenges now mocking the whole stunt and lawsuits from the funeral parlours, whose names were dragged into the whole saga, all this appears to have put pressure on Lukau him to make a U-turn and avoid prosecution in South Africa. Nehanda Radio
