Another South African Pastor makes members drink disinfectant, Dettol (PHOTO)

Another South African cleric, Prophet Rufus Phala, is in the news for making his church members drink disinfectant, Dettol, in order to receive their miracles.

Phala, a pastor with AK Spiritual Christian Church, Makgodu, Limpopo in the north eastern area of South Africa, instructed his followers to drink the disinfectant, while also acknowledging that it was dangerous to do so.

“I know Dettol is harmful, but God instructed me to use it. I was the first one to drink it,” the pastor said in a video sighted by South Africa’s Daily Sun.

He also claimed he has been getting WhatsApp messages from people who say they have been healed by obeying his command of drinking the disinfectant.

Dr Mabowa Makhomisane, a general practitioner, said Dettol is harmless when mixed with bath water or when cleaning a wound.

“But if it goes into your stomach and gets absorbed into your body, it decreases the amount of oxygen in your system. This might cause to you collapse and die.

“If you vomit the liquid into your lungs, it causes aspiration pneumonia.

“Your lungs will get swollen and you won’t be able to breathe.”

This is coming only few weeks after one Prophet Lethebo Rabalago in South Africa sprayed his congregation with Doom, a popular brand of insecticide.

In 2014, Pastor Lesego Daniel of Rabboni Centre Ministries, Garankuwa, also commanded his followers to eat grass in order to get closer to God.
