PhD Scholarship in Health Behaviour Research at University of Newcastle in Australia, 2018

Alph Lukau Fake Miracle – Eliot Masango, man resurrected speaks out

Self acclaimed man of God, Pastor Alph Lukau’s fake miracle has been trendig across social media platforms; he was seen raising a man from the dead.

Eliot Masango, the dead man ‘resurrected’ by the South African Pastor, has finally opened up on the issue.

In a Facebook post he made, Masango said he was truly a dead man who was resurrected.

He said the resurrection was a pure miracle, and not fake, therefore, people should stop criticising the pastor and himself.

He wrote:

“Guys….I was not paid to do what I did. I was really dead. [with a crying emoji]”.

Reactions to the post however made him delete it instantly while he responded to other comments on his posts on Facebook.
