Lethebo Rabalago is a name that's been in the media quite a bit more than you'd suspect given that he's a man of the cloth.

Recently, his name has been swirling around in the media once again because of reports that Rabalago used insecticide on his congregates.

But just who is this pastor? How did he rise to infamy? And why does he use such unconventional means to serve his congregation?

Lethebo Rabalago is a pastor of the Mount Zion Generaly Assembly in South Africa. Rabalago's church sits in Polokwane. He was previously in the news because a girl in his congregation fainted after he put a speaker on her.

Per the African Daily

[Lethebo Rabalago] emphasized that if Jesus walked on water, he too could do anything with faith.

It is on this point that he invited a girl from the praise team and asked her to lie down. He then ordered Ushers to carry a big speaker and put on her stomach saying the weight would not harm her. As if it was not enough, he climbed on top of the speaker, adding pressure to suffocate the girl who remained quite for she had already passed out.

After seating on top of the speaker which was still on the girl's stomach for close 5 minutes, he got up and ordered removal of the speaker, but the girl could not rise because she had fainted.

The girl reportedly died due to internal injuries.

More recently, Lethebo Rabalago posted pictures to his Facebook of him spraying insecticide on his congregates, according to CNN. He reportedly sprayed congregates with "Doom Super Multi Insect Killer" to cure them of ailments.

Per CNN:

A post from Saturday was captioned as if quoting a congregant, saying: "I came here with a pain on my back and stomach. Now, after the prophet sprayed me with Doom I am healed. My nose was blocked since last week, but after the prophet sprayed me with Doom I feel coming out of my nose. I thank God for healing me."

Will this pastor use more benign means of reaching his congregates and teaching them religious beliefs next time? Hopefully, yes.
