- Pastor Lukau claimed to have brought a man back from the dead, earning the name 'Resurrection Pastor'
- "Prophet" Mboro chastised him for discrediting Christianity
- He claims Mboro's statement was defamatory and wants to clear his name
Pastor Lukau, who has become known as the Resurrection Pastor thanks to his claims that he brought a man back from the dead, is once again denying that he ever made such assertions.
Alleluia Ministries’ pastor, Alph Lukau has been scrutinised and condemned by South Africans and religious groups for claiming that he performed a miracle and brought a dead man back to life at his funeral, leaving Mzansi shocked, amused and a little sceptical of religious organisations.
Hoping to mitigate the negative impact the saga may have had on Christian institutions, notorious Pastor Paseka “Mboro” Motsoeneng, released a joint statement with the SA Funeral Practitioners' Association (Safpa) as Briefly.co.za reported earlier. Safpa was also concerned about the misrepresentation of funeral parlours by Lukau and his church, Briefly.co.za found.
The statement argued that Lukau was simply seeking media attention when he claimed he brought a man back to life. It elaborated that such acts bring the credibility of Christian organisations into question.
Now, Lukau wants Mzansi to know that he is more than just another fraud. His lawyers have written to the Safp arguing that the joint statement they released with Mboro was defamatory, News24 found.
Alleluia Ministries has also distanced itself from the saga and stated that it had no involvement with the funeral parlours or any misrepresentation that occurred.
