After nearly 600 days of waiting for a resurrection that never came, South African Pastor Siva Moodley was finally buried in a dignified manner at Westpark Cemetery in Johannesburg.

Cases of families and followers of clergymen believing in their resurrection are not uncommon.

In 2021, a Zambian self-proclaimed prophet died after his attempt to recreate Jesus’ resurrection backfired spectacularly. 22-year-old Pastor James Sakara died after he asked his followers to bury him alive for three days so that he could miraculously resurrect.

Sakara, a pastor at the Zion Church in the Zambian town of Chidiza, convinced his congregation that he could come back from the dead and resurrect on the third day.

Members of the church are reported to have performed a series of “spiritual exercises” to resurrect their prophet. Unfortunately, it was to no avail. Prophet James Sakara was unable to emulate Jesus and rise from the dead after three days.

He was survived by a young pregnant wife.
