Elliot Brighton Moyo has died again, this just five weeks after his family brought his body in a coffin to Pastor Alph Lukau’s Johannesburg Sandton church and said they expected a miracle.
Some online portals have posed the following observations: what would cause the death of such a young man unless he truly was sick? Could it be that while the world was obsessed with the theory of him faking his resurrection in the church, that he was truly battling with a death threatening issue that could have taken his life in the first place?
Could it be that if something had been done for him thereafter to help instead of tormenting him with all sorts of accusations and insults he still could have been here?

Another public view stated, “how did Elliot die? Was he truly sick and could it have been prevented?

footage was released yet they are disregarded as they do not suit the
narrative that, amongst others, the press want to convey and a more
convenient truth that many would rather want to hear.
