Tiger Brands has urged Pastor Lethebo Rabalago, who sprays his congregants with the Doom insecticide to exorcise demons, to stop it.

Tiger Brands spokesperson Nevashnee Naicker said she was aware of pictures which emerged over the weekend on the Mount Zion General Assembly (MZGA) church's Facebook page. The pictures showed  Rabalago spraying his congregants with Doom Super Multi Insect Killer to exorcise demons at a night prayer in Mookgopong. He even claimed that he sprayed the insecticide on a female congregants eye to cure her of an illness.

“Although I cannot comment on how people exercise their religion or culture, I felt there was a need to warn the people about the dangers of using Doom... Doom is a hazard to anyone’s health,”  he said. “We find this practice alarming and extremely concerning, and want to make it very clear that it is unsafe to spray Doom Super Multi Insect Killer, or any other aerosol spray for that matter, into people’s faces.”

Doom, which is produced by Tiger Brands, has been formulated to kill specific insects which are specified on the cans. “Using this product for purposes other than what it is intended for poses health risks and is therefore dangerous,” she added.

In her statement Naicker said they treat all alleged incidents like the above as extremely serious.  “If Doom Super Multi Insect Killer is sprayed into your face, you need to wash your face and/or wash out your eyes immediately and avoid excessive inhalation.  If you are exposed to excessive contact, you may feel nauseous and light-headed. If misuse results in accidental illness, get prompt medical attention,” she said.
