Doom and Gloom Prophecy!

Doomed. Prophet Lethebo Rabalaga spraying a Doom insect killer on the face of a congregant in Limpopo, that caused mayhem countrywide. 

He will now be investigated by the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities (CRL Rights Commission).

Tiger Brands that owns the brand, has promised to take a hard stance against the Prophet from the Mount Zion General Assembly in Limpopo.

This follows wide spread criticism following the use of Doom insect spray on the face of his congregants claiming it ‘heals’.

Commission chairperson Thoko Mkhwanazi-Xaluva said they were filled with “shock and repugnance” towards the practices.

“As a commission, we categorically state that no one should be subjected to conditions that are detrimental to their health and wellbeing,” she said.

Mkhwanazi-Xaluva said: “(We) strongly condemn these actions and practices by some of these religious leaders” but assured the public that ultimately the recommendations contained in the report would “go a long way to address these kinds of issues”.

The commission has undertaken a study to investigate the commercialisation of religion and the abuse of people’s belief systems.

Tiger Brands spokesperson Nevashnee Naicker said it was unsafe “unsafe to spray Doom Super Multi-Insect Killer, or any other aerosol spray for that matter, into people’s faces”.

“Doom has been formulated to kill specific insects which are detailed on the cans, and the packaging has very clear instructions and health warnings for humans, which must be adhered to. Using this product for purposes other than what it is intended for poses health risks and is therefore dangerous,” said Naicker.

She also warned that “if Doom Super Multi-Insect Killer is sprayed into your face, you need to wash your face and/or wash out your eyes immediately and avoid inhalation”.

“If you are exposed to excessive contact, you may feel nauseous and light-headed,” she warned, adding that they were contacting Rabalago to get him to stop these practices.

“The police have said they cannot charge these prophets’ as the congregants who ingest petrol, are sprayed with Doom and forced to eat rats and snakes do not lay complaints,” said ACDP leader Reverend Kenneth Meshoe.

“We call on legal experts to advise the police on how to proceed, as deliberately endangering another person’s life is against the law.

“There is video evidence on these cases. We must use existing law to protect the innocents,” he added.

The Prophet of ‘Doom’ Rabalago stood by his belief that God was working through him.

We’ve heard it all from paraffin to eating grass from swallowing snakes to Doom spray. What’s next our black people?
