The leader of the Incredible Happenings church, Paseka “Mboro” Motsoeneng, popularly known as “Prophet Mboro”, will today, Thursday 28th February confront pastor Alph Lukau for “bringing Christianity into disrepute”.
This is as a result of a viral video of Lukau, of Alleluia International Ministries church in Kramerville, Sandton, performing a “resurrection” antics. According to the video, a Kings and Queens Real Funeral Services hearse was seen transporting a coffin into the church where Lukau and congregants pray before the man rises from the coffin, breathing heavily in what is apparently staged to be a miraculous resurrection.
In a media statement titled “This unholy media war must stop now!”, Mboro, together with the South African Funeral Practitioners’ Association (Safpa), voices his shafe regarding Lukau pulling “such an antic for the sake of quick fame and cameras”.
He further states that a group of bishops and pastors “have also voiced their concerns and will join the charismatic Prophet Mboro to air their frustrations”.
In his words, “No bona fide religious leader, in his right sense of mind and driven by the spirit of our Creator, can attempt to pull such an antic for the sake of quick fame and cameras. And that trick has immediately backfired, with many civil society groups denouncing Lukau, and other church leaders,”.
“In the news and on social media, South Africans are expressing deep disbelief over the supposed resurrection of a man – which appears to be a bad (sic) rehearsed act. Funeral parlours are distancing themselves from the act, and even the Zimbabwean government has issued a [statement] saying that was not its resurrected citizen,” Mboro added.
According to Sowetan, on Wednesday, Lukau’s church claimed that the “dead” man was actually “already alive” when his “body” got to the premises and that Lukau had only “completed a miracle that God had already started”.
Sowetan added saying that the funeral parlour claimed to have been duped into taking part in the act and reported the matter to the police on Monday.
Prophet Mboro said he would be visiting the Alleluia Ministries International “to demand answers from pastor Lukau, to demand an apology on the misrepresentation of the gospel, and most importantly – to plead with Pastor Lukau to abandon his devious ways and turn to the Lord”.
