Doom pastor to appear in court


'Prophet' Lethebo Rabalago from Mountzion General Assembly in Limpopo says he uses Doom insectice to heal people from any illness they have, be it cancer or HIV.

JOHANNESBURG - Controversial pastor Lethebo Rabalago, who sprayed members of his congregation with an insecticide, is expected to appear in the Limpopo High Court on Monday.

The Department of Health in the province approached the court for an interdict to stop him from spraying Doom on churchgoers.

The preacher made headlines late last year when he claimed the practice would heal them.

But health officials have strongly discouraged this, adding such practices pose serious health concerns.

They have since recommended that Rabalago's mental state be evaluated.
