A controversial Pastor, Prophet Rufus Phala of AK Spiritual Christian Church, Makgodu, Limpopo in the north eastern area of South Africa, is in the news again after he gave his church members Jik bleach to drink.
It was gathered that the Jik bleach the controversial Pastor gave his church members to drink as a sign of faith during church service on Sunday, allegedly affected so many people.
The Police in Limpopo are currently investigating the incident, which had members of the church drinking the bleach to get healed. The Pastor who noted that drinking the bleach was harmful, also claimed he has been getting WhatsApp messages from people who say they have been healed by obeying his command of drinking the bleach.
“I know Dettol is harmful, but God instructed me to use it. I was the first one to drink it,” the pastor said.

Few months ago, another South African Pastor sparked outrage after encouraging worshipers at his church to drink deadly rat poison. Pastor Light Monyeki told worshipers at the Grace Living Hope Ministries to drink from a bottle of water laced with noxious Rattex to ‘nourish their bodies’ and ‘heal their sickness’.
After the pastor took a sip from the bottom, ‘a multitude of congregants voluntarily ran to the front to have a drink of the deadly poison’, the church claimed. Sharing pictures of Monyeki pouring the poisoned water down congregants’ throats, the church wrote in a Facebook post:
‘The man of God, Prophet Light Monyeki demonstrates power of faith by causing congregants to drink Rattax; deadly poison to show forth their faith.
‘As he was doing that he said “we do not need to proclaim faith because we are believers. If nyaope [a street drug] boys can smoke Rattax for more than eight years, who are we? Death has no power over us”.
‘Then he declared life from above upon the water mixed with Rattax; and spoke nourishment unto bodies and healing unto the sick.
‘A multitude of congregants voluntarily ran to the front to have a drink of the deadly poison. After declaring nourishment and healing, Prophet Light was the first one to drink.’
