Funeral organisers sue Pastor Alph Lukau over ‘fake’ resurrection video

Funeral organisers sue Pastor Alph Lukau over ‘fake’ resurrection video

A viral video of Pastor Alph Lukau shows him shouting "rise up" to a man lying down in a coffin who then jerks upright to cheers from worshippers.

During the service, the coffin with the man's body is removed from the hearse as a crowd of people gather around it.

"Under normal circumstances, with all the allegations against him, by this time, in any other profession, he would have been suspended", she said.

They said they had been approached by "alleged family members of the deceased" who had told them they had encountered a dispute with a different funeral service provider and wanted to use their transport services, which the company agreed to.

In a statement seen by Legit.ng, Kings and Queens Funeral Services exposed a malicious manipulation spree which ended up in the facility providing some services to the pastor and the "deceased".

South Africans accused the pastor of "faking" a resurrection and they have placed increased pressure on Lukau to come clean.

Top Vatican cleric Cardinal Pell convicted of child sex crimes
The Vatican said in December that Francis had removed Pell, 77, from his group of close advisers, without commenting on the trial. Cardinal George Pell , Australia's highest-ranking Catholic, has been convicted of five child sex offences committed in 1996.


The Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities (CRL Rights Commission) is set to investigate the "resurrection" pastor who claimed to have brought a man back from the dead over the weekend.

According to a report by The Star, Prophet Alph Lukau, leader of Alleluia Ministries International (AMI), is being sued by three Johannesburg-based funeral parlours, following the weird ceremony which has since made waves on social media.

Rosseau has called out Kings and Queens, insisting that "it doesn't add up". "The three funeral parlours wish to vehemently distance themselves from events that took place at Halleluya Ministries", the three funeral companies' lawyer Advocate Prince Mafu said at a news conference.

"We continue to strive for excellence as your preferred funeral services provider that offers a service that give you honour, dignity and comfort".

As a Funeral Services Provider we do not offer services without documentation neither do we repatriate bodies without any paperwork.

The man was dressed in white clothes and had white gloves on when he rose from a coffin with his mouth wide open.
