A popular South African clergy, Prophet Rufus Phala of AK Spiritual Christian Church in Makgodu, Limpopo, has stunned people with his unusual healing methods.
The man shocked members and outsiders when he made his church members drink Dettol.
This is coming just a few weeks after one Prophet Lethebo Rabalago sprayed his congregation with Doom, to heal them of afflictions.
According to reporters, Prophet Rufus made his church members drink Dettol during Sunday service.
Prophet Rufus reportedly told the congregation to drink the antiseptic liquid, promising they will be healed of their sickness.
“I know Dettol is harmful, but God instructed me to use it. I was the first one to drink it,” he claimed.
He also claimed he has been getting WhatsApp messages from people who say they have been healed.
Dr Mabowa Makhomisane, a general practitioner, said Dettol is harmless when mixed with bath water or when cleaning a wound.
“But if it goes into your stomach and gets absorbed into your body, it decreases the amount of oxygen in your system. This might cause to you collapse and die.
“If you vomit the liquid into your lungs, it causes aspiration pneumonia.
“Your lungs will get swollen and you won’t be able to breathe.”
Dr Makhomisane advised the people who drank the liquid to consult a doctor to check whether any damage was done.
