On Sunday, DRC-born pastor Alph Lukau of Alleluia Ministries International set the internet abuzz after resurrecting a dead man in South Africa, where he is based. This was a well orchestrated skit (because we are not going to sit here and pretend that it was real) performed in front of hundreds of eye witnesses and cameras. In the video that is now circling the interweb, the hearse arrives, carrying the body of 'Elliot', the supposedly deceased man. The casket is then brought out and carried to a central spot where the pastor whispers a few abrakadabras and boom, Elliot is seen opening his mouth and rising from the dead.

It’s almost like…like…magic. The crowd cheers, cries, prays and Elliot is led into the church, still open-mouthed (pun intended) to be back from the dead. The funniest part of the whole pastiche is when Elliot is fed food and he’s still in character, stopping to stare with every bite of food.

Following the news, Kings and Queens funeral services have distanced themselves from the whole saga and even allegedly plan on suing the pastor and his church for lying so as to use their vehicle.

Lukau is said to be one of the wealthiest pastors in Africa and if the receipts are anything to go by, then damn right he’s rich. Photos have emerged showing the lavish life the pastor enjoys – a fleet of expensive cars including a private jet, vacations, designer clothes, the jetset life or if you like, utter opulence.
