JOHANNESBURG — The future of controversial Gauteng Pastor Mboro, real name Paseka Motsoeneng, seems uncertain as his credibility continues to be questioned.
As part of its probe into his activities, the Commission for Religious Rights says it wants him to answer questions about claims he went to heaven.
However, undeterred, the self-proclaimed prophet has hit back at the commission by filing for defamation against it.
The Commission’s chairperson, Thoko Mkhwanazi Xaluza, is determined the pastor must answer to ‘miracles’ he alleges he has experienced.
She has described his assertions as problematic to the Christian faith.
“We are waiting for him to appear before the commission to explain whether he went to heaven and whether Jesus has a hot Xhosa wife whether he uttered those things that bring Christianity into disrepute.”
Mboro is further accused of not furnishing his church’s financial details to the Commission for Religious Rights as requested.
He also allegedly told his congregation he had travelled into the afterlife. He then tried selling the photos of his supposed trip to heaven on social media, before claiming they had been lost.
He’s denied those allegations.
“I’ve never been in Heaven physically but I believe in the bible,” said Mboro.
The Commission for Religious Rights is laying charges against him.
He is adamant, however, that he has nothing to wrong that would require him to answer to the Commission, which he accuses of bias.
“Who complained against me, no one complained against me, churches that went to that commission, whatever you call they have never showed their financial statements to the press and public how much they made on Sunday or how they spent their money,” says Motsoeneng.
