The leader of the Incredible Happenings church, known simply as "Prophet Mboro", will on Thursday confront pastor Alph Lukau for "bringing Christianity into disrepute".
This relates to a viral video of Lukau, of Alleluia International Ministries church in Kramerville, Sandton, performing a "resurrection". In the video, a Kings and Queens Real Funeral Services hearse can be seen transporting a coffin into the church where Lukau and congregants pray before the man rises from the coffin, breathing heavily in what is apparently staged to be a miraculous resurrection.
In a media statement titled "This unholy media war must stop now!", Mboro, together with the South African Funeral Practitioners' Association (Safpa), voices his displeasure about Lukau pulling "such an antic for the sake of quick fame and cameras"
Mboro, who is described as "one of the most recognisable charismatic prophets in South Africa" and "a leading activist in South African communities", further states that a group of bishops and pastors "have also voiced their concerns and will join the charismatic Prophet Mboro to air their frustration".
"No bona fide religious leader, in his right sense of mind and driven by the spirit of our Creator, can attempt to pull such an antic for the sake of quick fame and cameras. And that trick has immediately backfired, with many civil society groups denouncing Lukau, and other church leaders," Mboro said. 24 News.
