A Johannesburg Prophet Is Under Fire After Faking A Local Man’s Resurrection
A Johannesburg prophet is facing lawsuits after he reportedly faked a resurrection using a funeral home’s hearse, MSN reports.
Three funeral parlors have open lawsuits aimed at Prophet Alph Lukau for manipulating the employees of their businesses into participating in his public hoax.
“They approached Kingdom Blue for the purposes of acquiring a coffin, used stickers of Black Phoenix to brand their private car, and used such car to misrepresent it to Kings & Queens for the purposes of acquiring transport to ferry the body to the rural areas,” a statement from the suit reads.
“It is with regret that the outcome of such a plot/scheme has adversely affected our reputation as service providers, our valued clients and the general public,” the companies explained.
