 Public warned against miracle-healing claims


Religious groups are up in arms at the plans of a controversial Brazilian church to hold a mass miracle healing event in South Africa on New Year's Eve.
The Universal Church of the Kingdom of God (UCKG) was banned for the second time in Zambia last week and is being investigated by concerned religious groups in South Africa who say bizarre allegations have been made about the church, ranging from satanic worship to child sacrifice .

The UCKG intends holding a mass miracle-healing event at Johannesburg's FNB Stadium on New Year's Eve and has been advertising the rally on television adverts as a cure-all for improved finances and health.

This is the Zambian government's second attempt to outlaw the organisation - on the previous occasion the government claimed the church had solicited blood from its members.

Crowds rioted in the capital Lusaka last month amid rumours of a planned ritual sacrifice of two people who were said to have been taken hostage by the church. Madagascar banned the church in February this year and jailed four senior church officials for burning bibles.
