The 53-year-old man who was the founder of The Miracle Centre in the north of Johannesburg died on 15 August after falling ill.
A popular South African pastor identified as Siva Moodley who passed away in August 2021 is still in a Gauteng mortuary, after failing to resurrect as promised.
The said cleric has spent 13 months in the mortuary.
Moodley who has a legion of followers, both domestically and internationally, was revered amongst the religious community for a set of supposed ‘miracles’ he performed while alive, The South African reports. However, critics believe these were performed ‘with a slight of hand’.
Since his death almost 400 days ago, the pastor has laying lifeless inside Martins Funeral Home. The institution, located in Fourways, has been paid respectably to keep the faith-based leader in their care – but even a cashflow of almost R60 000 (about N1.5 million) is starting to wear thin.
Martin du Toit who runs the funeral home, recently told IOL that he’s seeking approval from the courts to either burn or cremate the body. Indeed, it seems even the pastor’s most ardent supporters have given up on a resurrection. Moodley has had no visitors within the last 12 months.
The 53-year-old man who was the founder of The Miracle Centre in the north of Johannesburg died on 15 August after falling ill. Moodley’s church has not acknowledged his death on their social media platforms.
It is also true that the pastor’s social media accounts, most notably Twitter, are still operational – and Tweets are posted every day as if they were from him. Services are being live-streamed on social media to the day, with sermons conducted by his wife and son.
A recent post from Africa Facts Zone has set tongues wagging on this issue again, as prospects of a resurrection dim further by the day.
