‘Resurrect Mandela’ says pastor to rival
A leader of a charismatic church in South Africa has gone to confront another pastor for “bringing Christianity into disrepute” by staging a bogus resurrection.
Self-styled prophet Paseka “Mboro” Motsoeneng of the Incredible Happenings church can be seen in the video below shouting at the gates of Alph Lukau’s church saying:
“I’m not here to fight anyone, I’m here to get answers.””If it’s true that you resurrected a man, then let’s go to Mandela’s grave to do the same,” the BBC’s Nomsa Maseko heard him say at the scene.
Mboro drove to Alleluia Ministries in Sandton in his BMW i8. He stood outside with his supporters and members of other denominations. The scene was set for a showdown of biblical proportions.
Lukau, however, was nowhere to be seen.
Members of Alleluia Ministries were inside the church, watching Mboro through the window. Others later came out carrying placards but they were quickly confiscated by a man affiliated with the church.
“Why do you walk away if I am wrong? I want you to surrender and apologise. Can I see the leadership of the church? Maybe I can be prayed for,” said Mboro.
“I want to call the pastor that we can go to Nelson Mandela’s grave and raise him,” he added.
Mr Motsoeneng was himself mocked online after reportedly charging followers to view his photos of “heaven”. BBC News
