JOHANNESBURG - Controversial Prophet Paseka Motsoeneng, also known as Pastor Mboro, is threatening legal action against the CRL Rights Commission after it recommended that all religious leaders be registered or face prosecution.

On Tuesday, the commission released its report into the commercialisation of religion and abuse of people's belief systems.

It has found that a number of religious practitioners were unregistered, used cult-like practices and flouted banking rules.

However, Mboro, says religious leaders cannot be regulated by people who don’t understand their mandate from God.

He's threatened to shut down his church if his followers don’t help him with legal costs.

"If they’re going to need my service they must stand up and tell the world, who I am.

"All women and children, who didn’t have children, they have children today. Their growths, their cysts, they are gone. If ever those people are not on my list, I’m going on strike."
