Polokwane – The Limpopo health department wants a specialist to examine the “Prophet of Doom”, a spokesperson said on Tuesday.

They would not lay criminal complaints until Lethabo Rabalago had been examined and given a clean bill of health, spokesperson Derick Kganyago said.

Rabalago, of Mount Zion General Assembly, sprayed the insecticide onto worshippers and posted pictures on his organisations’ Facebook page. He apparently did so to “heal” his followers and exorcise their demons.

Kganyago said no reports of people harmed by the spray had reached them yet. The effects of inhaling the insecticide would however only appear much later.

“Doom is toxic and meant to kill insects. We cannot accept a situation where it is used against its purpose to harm people,” Kganyago said.

He said the department would support victims who came forward.

The manufacturer, Tiger Brands, on Monday warned that what he was doing was dangerous. It said it would contact him to ask him to stop.

Rabalago could not be reached for comment on his cellphone.
