African pastors have recently become popular for all the wrong reasons. They are now more known for their extravagant and luxurious lifestyles than for preaching the word of God.
In their quest for this life, many have resorted to bizarre rituals of ‘healing’ and ‘luring’ more people to their churches. Just recently, news that a South African pastor, Prophet Rufus Phala, made his congregation drink Jik bleach has been going viral on social media. Six people have died as a result of this act.

It is not the first time Phala has been in the news. In 2016, he made the congregation drink Dettol and even the uproar from the public did not stop him as he was seen just weeks later buying more bottles of Dettol.
