South Africa Pastor Sprays Pesticide In Members Faces As Commission, Pesticide Brand Fire Back

0
South Africa’s Commission for the Promotion
and Protection of Cultural, Religiousand Linguistic Communities has reacted
with “shock and repugnance” at the use of Doom insect repellent on
church worshippers.
Self-styled Limpopo “prophet”
Lethebo Rabalago has been spraying it in the faces of congregants, telling them
it has healing properties.

The commission says such practises are the
reason it is investigating the commercialisation of religion and the
“abuse of people’s belief systems”.

The study has aims including seeking to:
           
“Understand
the deep societal thinking that makes some members of our society vulnerable
and gullible with respect to views expressed and actions during religious
ceremonies.”   
In a statement, the commission urged anyone
who feels their rights and beliefs have been violated to get in touch and says
no-one should be “subjected to conditions that are detrimental to their
health and well being”.
  
Pesticide brand fires back;
Doom makers Tiger Brands says it is
imploring the prophet to stop spraying the pesticide product into people’s
faces as part of faith worship: They took to twitter to say;
We find this practice alarming and
extremely concerning, and want to make very clear that it is unsafe to spray
any Doom or any aerosol onto people’s faces.
Doom has been formulated to kill specific
insects which are detailed on the cans, and the packaging has very clear
warnings which must be adhered to. Using this product for purposes other than
what it is intended for poses risks and is therefore dangerous.
Tiger Brands is in the process of
contacting the Prophet to ask him to refrain from such practice.”
