Prophet Rufus Phala of the Spiritual Christian Church in Makgodu Village, outside Polokwane in Limpopo, who made his congregants drink Dettol antiseptic liquid is now in hospital.
This is after a group of EFF members in Limpopo cornered him outside a shop where he stock his holy Dettol and forced him to drink close to 1 litre of the product. The group said they want to make him understand that what he is doing to people is wrong.
DETTOL South Africa has condemned the acts and practices of Prophet
“The pastor started vomiting and shaking the moment they let him go, He was breathing out bubbles and then he eventually fell to the ground. The paramedics found him unresponsive”. Said and eyewitness.
“I saw him inside the shop he had a trolley full of Dettol and I wanted to ask if he can let me drink the anointed Dettol, he refused and say I should come to the church for that”. Said one of the cashier from the shop where he buys his stock.
The pastor made headlines when he said the Holy Spirit had instructed him to use the product. This, according to Phala, would help heal all congregants’ sicknesses.
