Pretoria - The company that manufactures insect killer Doom on Monday expressed alarm after a Limpopo pastor sprayed the product into his congregants’ faces.

“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,” the company said in a statement.

Prophet Lethebo Rabalago, of Mount Zion General Assembly in Limpopo, sprayed the insecticide onto worshippers and posted pictures on his organisations’ Facebook page.

According to the posts on Facebook, the insecticide helped heal a woman’s stomach ulcer, with God’s help.

“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.”

The company said Doom was formulated to kill specific insects and the packaging had clear warnings which had to be adhered to.
