THE Prophet of Doom made headlines last year when he sprayed his church members with insect poison to allegedly rid them of their illnesses.

Yesterday, Lethebo Rabalago (24) of Mount Zion Christian Church appeared in the Limpopo High Court as he tried to set aside a court order obtained against him by health MEC Phophi Ramathuba.

Ramathuba’s spokesman, Thabiso Teffo, said the MEC wouldn’t allow Rabalago to spray members with a product that was dangerous to their health.

“He can do it somewhere else, not in Limpopo. Congregants who are affected and collapse will be rushed to our health facilities, placing a further burden on them,” said Teffo.

Rabalago was accompanied outside court by church members wearing white T-shirts written “Touch not the anointed one”.

Speaking via telephone to Daily Sun, the prophet said he used Doom once – not every Sunday. He then ended the interview, saying: “Let’s give the court a chance to decide.”

The hearing was postponed to 2 March.
