St Lucia probing Ghanaian preacher

(BBC) The St Lucian government is investigating a Ghanaian man who claims to be a prophet and miracle worker.

Preacher William Braham has been linked to one religious organisation, and has been drawing crowds to sessions billed as occasions for healing of the sick.

Some people claim to have actually been healed, while others have dismissed Mr Braham as a false prophet.

But the Social Transformation Minister Lenard Montoute says Mr Braham needs permission from the government to operate as a minister on the island.
