The man who has gained a lot of attention after he was allegedly “resurrected” by popular South African televangelist Prophet Alph Lukau has been identified as Brighton, a 29 year old man. Brighton works at timber a company in Pretoria.
The owner of the company, Vincent, of Vincent Amoretti PTY LTD, has revealed that the last time they saw Brighton was on the 19th of February, when he arrived so late for work. He had attended a funeral over the weekend of 16 and 17 February, and he told his colleagues that he was late on Tuesday because the church elders asked him to stay a day longer.
And according to his boss, Brighton has not been at work since Tuesday and his absence is being treated as absent with leave.
Meanwhile, the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities in a press statement on Monday has stated that it would be investigating the incident in which the Johannesburg based pastor was seen on camera resurrecting a dead man in a coffin.
According to the commission, “we need to get to the root of this. Unless we do that, South Africans are being taken for a ride and their intelligence is insulted,” said the commission’s deputy chair David Mosoma.
Meanwhile, Vincent has dropped a bombshell by stating that this is not the first time Brighton has been involved with Pastor Lukau. Vincent has revealed that Brighton helped the pastor by pretending to be wheelchair-bound and then standing up after Lukau prayed for him.
“Can you imagine what a life he’s had? He’s worked for me, he died, he was resurrected and now he’s been arrested,” said Vincent on the show.
