For once, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri is not the one making the headlines. This time, social media users called out religious leader Alph Lukau for being an allegedly fake pastor.

Lukau was filmed resurrecting a dead man in front of his congregation and the video has since been shared on social media.

Briefly.co.za gathered Twitter parody account Man's Not Barry Roux posted the video on the social media handle and it sparked quite the reaction.

"Crooked Bushiri has nothing on Crooked Lukau. Alph lukau resurrect a man who is already breathing in the coffin - competition for these thugs so called pastors is very high and they are trying so hard," he captioned the video.

The footage showed the pastor standing in front of an open coffin, talking to the bystanders. Lukau said the man died on Friday and was in the mortuary - he even addressed the deceased's sister.

Then, he went on to pray for the alleged corpse and just as he shouted: "rise up!" the man was resurrected.

Social media user @Barangwe commented: "His mouth is open and dead people don't open their mouth."
