What was supposed to be the demonstration of God’s power in a South African church, Mount Zion General Assembly, turned out to be a journey to the land of the dead for a young female member of the church who was used for the power experiment.
Reports circulating on social media claim that the South African pastor, Lethebo Rabalango, who is the architect of the failed miracle attempt, in a bid to show how powerful he is, caused the death of the young lady after putting a heavy speaker on her. The girl died due to internal injuries she sustained.
The report by The Southern Daily read:
“Congregates of Mount Zion General Assembly went home with their heads down on Sunday after a failed demonstration of power by the church pastor when a girl fainted after he put a very big and heavy speaker on top of her, promising her that she would not feel pain. The woman has now died from internal injuries caused to her lungs.
“Pastor Lethebo Rabalango had organised a night of worship at his church in Polokwane where he was teaching about demonstration of power in which he emphasised that if Jesus walked on water, he too could do anything with faith.
“It is on this point that he invited a girl from the praise team and asked her to lie down. He then ordered ushers to carry a big speaker and put on her stomach saying the weight would not harm her. As if it was not enough, he climbed on top of the speaker, adding pressure to suffocate the girl who remained quite for she had already passed out.
“After seating on top of the speaker which was still on the girl’s stomach for close to 5 minutes, he got up and ordered the removal of the speaker, but the girl could not rise because she had fainted. It took some elders giving her first aid treatment before she came back but complained of a broken rib.
“Then she was then taken to the hospital. However, the pastor blamed the girl and accused her of having little faith for she could not withstand a very simple task. Pastor Lethabo can be accessed via his Facebook Account”.
