On Tuesday, SABC's investigative programme, Cutting Edge, probed the actions of controversial Pastor Alph Lukau and they opened a can of worms.

A video clip of the episode has gone viral on social media. The footage shows a woman, who has been identified as Samantha Revesai, revealing Lukau allegedly tricked her into lying about her HIV status.

According to Revesai, Lukau convinced her to tell his congregation that she was HIV positive so that he could pray for her healing.

After he prayed, Revesai then had to come back and claim she was no longer HIV positive. However, Revesai now revealed she was never sick in the first place.

"I was not positive, I've never been positive. They wanted me to act as if I was positive and then pastor prayed for me so they can attract more people to come to the church," she said.
