You gotta have faith for this ‘miracle’
A Durban pastor, infamous for claiming he can cure HIV/Aids with holy water, is now selling “miracle towels”, “faith soap” and bumper stickers that can save you from car accidents. Bishop HQ Nala has opened shops in KwaZuluNatal, Mpumalanga and Gauteng, and says a hospital and bakery are next. Nala was heavily criticised by KwaZulu-Natal health MEC Sibongiseni Dhlomo and the Treatment Action Campaign after claiming his “faith water”, combined with prayer, can cure HIV/Aids.
But the pastor shrugged off the criticism and is now selling faith oil, faith honey, faith juice, miracle towels, faith soap, “accident prevention stickers” and branded gear.
The “accident prevention” stickers sell for R6 each.
Nala said he has never told his followers that his products could cure Aids and cancer, chase away evil spirits or protect the user from car accidents.
“All I am doing is following God’s mandate to produce products that can heal people. I do not tell people that this is what my products will do for them.”
It is about their faith in God and how He chooses to use me to heal them, he said.
