- Pastor Lukau claimed to have resurrected a man at his funeral
- "Prophet" Mboro claims he is besmirching the name of Christianity for media attention
- Many South Africans feel Mboro did the same thing not so long ago, when he claimed to have been to heaven
South Africans’ tongues have been wagging since a video of Pastor Lukau claiming to have resurrected the dead emerged on social media earlier this month. After weeks of scrutiny from Mzansi Prophet Mboro has now condemned Lukau for bringing Christianity into dispute.
However, many South Africans feel as though Mboro has been equally problematic to Christianity.
Paseka Motsoeneng, better known as “Prophet Mboro” by adoring followers of the Incredible Happenings church, has joined the slew of South Africans condemning Lukau for claiming that he brought a man back to life at his own funeral. Mboro says that Lukau has tarnished the name of Christianity and discredited the religious institution, Briefly.co.za found.
Mboro released a statement in joint efforts with the South African Funeral Practitioners’ Association, to assert that besmirching Christianity for media attention needs to end. He also claims that various other religious bodies and civil society groups share their sentiment about the “unholy media war”, News24 reported.
Although Mzansi seems to agree with Prophet Mboro’s condemnation of Lukau, many consider Mboro himself to have lead Christianity into dispute as he is at the centre of several corruption and fraud scandals.
A Twitter user, Jeanette Bossert, questions how Mboro could throw shade at Lukau when he himself allegedly claimed to have gone to heaven to kill Satan not so long ago. Many south Africans had not yet forgotten about Mboro’s antics and agreed with Jeanette’s assertion.
