More and more damning allegations against Pastor Alph Lukau have surfaced. In an episode of SABC's Cutting Edge, people who were allegedly paid off by the resurrection pastor came forward to reveal their stories.

One man, Blessing Kwemelao, claimed he helped Lukau recruit people to act in his 'fake' miracles.

According to The Citizen, Kwemelao said his recruits would be trained to act as if they had disabilities.

Kwemelao revealed he was not the only one who found people for Lukau's alleged shenanigans - they were reportedly a team of four recruiters.

He added because of his strong build, he would help carry the phoney disabled people to the stage and he would also give them cues during services.

Cutting Edge visited the reported residence of the man Lukau allegedly resurrected in Nellmapius, east of Pretoria.

However, instead of finding the resurrected Elliot, the team was met with more stories of fake miracles by Lukau.

An anonymous woman, who reportedly knows Elliot and his wife, claimed Lukau's church tried to pay her to shove a snake down her clothing and release it at the correct time during the sermon.

Briefly.co.za learned another lady, Grace, claimed the church would pay people R3 500 to act disabled.

She added they also target Zimbabweans because they are "hard to trace".
