And in true after death "style"...Elliot disappeared- ghosted if you will.
So social media users couldn't believe the reports, saying there could be yet another resurrection miracle on the way.
Several Zimbabwean news publications reported on Monday that Brighton Elliot Moyo had passed on following a short illness.
According to Malawi24, Bulawayo24 News, to name a few, Elliot died last week in South Africa and was buried on Saturday.
An apparent relative who spoke to H-Metro claimed Elliot passed on three days after his stomach started swelling.
But people were not convinced about the news reports and took to social media to voice their doubts.
In an episode of SABC actuality show Cutting Edge last month, allegations of fraud and deception emerged against the miracles industry particularly those involving Lukau.
Lukau and his lawyers have claimed that Elliot had been totally unknown to Lukau prior to the “miracle”, though some individuals Cutting Edge interviewed alleged this was unlikely and that the man’s family was apparently known to have worked with the church prior to Elliot’s “resurrection”.
The church allegedly preys on and recruits the poor, and immigrants in particular, with one person interviewed, Samantha Revesai, claiming she was asked to fake her HIV-positive status and play along with the ruse that she had been healed after supposedly living with the disease for three years.
If the passing is indeed fact and not factual, we can all say that Elliot should rest in peace.
