The Government have called on the people of South Africa to stop unacceptable practices and media stunst by religious leaders.

These school kids have a much better version of events… and the internet cannot stop laughing!


Johannesburg, South Africa – A group of school children are going viral for reenacting the recent revival scandal in the most hilarious way.

In the original video, Alph Lukau, a man claiming to be a Pastor, prays over a dead man named Elliot who is dressed in a white suit. After this, the man is seemingly brought back to life. The incident led to a social media frenzy over the authenticity of this alleged act.

Since then our timelines have been filled with memes and jokes about the ridiculous incident but these school kids take the cake with their version of what happened.

I think it could be the howling laughter that had us in stitches.

Watch the video below:

Meanwhile Cabinet has urged people to work together to stop practices by some religious leaders who abuse people’s vulnerability and endanger their lives.

“People approach religious institutions to gain spiritual fulfilment and psychological strength, especially when they are at their lowest and most vulnerable state,” Cabinet said in a statement following their regular meeting on Thursday.

The call follows the recent purported resurrection of a deceased person at Alleluia Ministries International Church, north of Johannesburg, led by Alph Lukau. More of such incidences have happened in the recent past, ranging from spraying of congregants with poisonous insecticides to encouraging them to consume vehicle fuel, rats and grass, among others.

Cabinet called on the law-enforcement agencies to intervene where acts of criminality have been committed under the guise of religion.

The Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities is investigating these practices, which will provide a more comprehensive intervention that will stop them.
