And what does “Pastor Doom” receive as thanks? Only a conviction on five counts of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm!
A South African self-styled prophet who sprayed his followers with the insecticide, Doom, has been found guilty of assault, local media report.
Lethebo Rabalago – widely known as the Doom Pastor – was also found guilty of contravening the Agricultural Stock Remedies Act, a court ruling said.
Rabalago claims the insect repellent he used in 2016 could heal cancer and HIV.
In photos circulating on social media, he was seen spraying the insecticide directly into the eyes and various body parts of his congregants.
At the time, he told the BBC’s Nomsa Maseko in Johannesburg he had sprayed the face of one woman because she had an eye infection and claimed the woman was “just fine because she believed in the power of God”. [more]
