No repatriation papers for 'resurrected Zimbabwean' man

No repatriation papers for 'resurrected Zimbabwean' man

On Sunday, the head pastor of Alleluia International Ministries in Sandton, Johannesburg, caused controversy after claiming to have resurrected a dead man at his church.

They are also reported to have placed "Black Phoenix stickers on their private car" to look credible to Kings & Queens Funeral Services when they went to hire a hearse from them.

The employer, Vincent has identified the man who was in the coffin by the names Elliot and Brighton.

"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". "All these requirements are processed during weekdays and since this man is said to have died this past Friday, I wonder how they managed to get all that documentation in a space of hours that is if he died at all". "People like hearing old miracles that were happening in old days, we are living in new generation where you will see unseen, hear unheard, extra ordinary miracles are going to happen even more", she added.

They claimed the media had disregarded these points and that no one had sought comment from the pastor or the church before "publishing their biased and misguided views".

But Lukau's supposed resurrection prompted a backlash from the funeral home, "hired" to make the arrangements for the "dead" man.

Unfortunately for Lukau, his viral "resurrection" spectacularly backfired as it emerged three funeral companies are now reportedly suing him for reputational damage. "We will also be summoning the funeral parlour", Mkhwanazi-Xaluva said.

This miracle was performed at the church premises in the presence of his congregation and family of the dead man on his burial day.

Pastor Lukau had only "completed a miracle that God had already started", Sowetan Live quoted the church's representatives as saying.
