Debate about misuse of religion sparks after pastor "resurrects" man

South Africa based pastor Alph Lukau of Alleluia Ministries International claims to have resurrected a man who he says had been dead for three days.

A woman who claims to be the resurrected man’s landlord said the man died on Friday in her hands after a cough.

Lakau begins to pray for the body, which reportedly came straight from the mortuary, prompting the man to sit up in the coffin with his mouth and eyes wide open.

Being resurrected


“He got sick and started coughing a lot on Friday and then we took him to the hospital… that is where he died in my hands,” she says.

The body of the man, named Elliot, is said to have been kept at the mortuary following his death.

After Lakau begins to pray and when he shouts “rise up”, the man in the coffin sits up with his mouth and eyes wide open.


Meanwhile, Kings and Queens Funeral Services has distanced itself from the stunt. The company says it only provided the hearse for transportation.

“We were approached by alleged family members of the deceased who informed us they had encountered a dispute with a different funeral service provider and would like to use our transport services which we offered them.

“We did not supply the coffin neither did we store the deceased at our mortuary and no paperwork was processed by Kings and Queens Funerals. As a Funeral Services Provider we do not offer services without documentation neither do we repatriate bodies without any paperwork” reads part of the statement issued by the company.

The funeral parlour has also threatened to take legal action against Pastor Alph Lukau and his church for the “malicious damage” to the company’s image.
